The classes I have done with Charles have been so helpful in developing my confidence and knowledge in the field of voice over. I have really appreciated his method of teaching. His lessons are always fun and encouraging while at the same time he challenges me to improve my performance . The training CDs are an invaluable resource that I listen to over and over. They enable me to refresh my memory about particular warm up excercises and give me confidence before an audition. The fact that Charles records each training session and then gives me a copy of the recording is also really helpful as it allows me to review the lesson at my leisure, and then practice what was learned in the lesson.
Charles has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field of voice over, which
he shares generously and in a way that encourages his students to keep improving
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!
