Before I started working with Charles Michel, I knew I wanted to do voiceovers, but I had no idea what to do or how to even get started. Charles’ careful instruction has given me a solid background and a true understanding of who I am as a performer.
Now, not only do I understand the business I am in and how to navigate it, but I am armed with a strong technique and I feel confident to take on this competitive field. Charles is an excellent teacher, mentor and coach, and I would recommend him to anyone.
In addition to training the voices of hundreds of people, Charles Michel has been an actor, singer, character voice performer and voice-over announcer.

Most people work hard at never appearing foolish. They avoid being “too” animated, energized, opinionated, eccentric, etc. From the onset of puberty when teenage peer pressure compels people to be “cool” and fit in, most folks live in dire fear of being laughed at, which is probably the largest obstacle in getting the winning voice… Because it blocks free exspression. Intellectually, you probably already know that if “they” laugh at you, you will not suddenly drop dead. However, you need to start to believe this at an emotional level as well. Laughter is not life threatening! So, the quickest way to get over the fear of others laughing at you is to make sure that they do!
