Take a deep breath. No, Really. Take a deep breath! If you are like most people, you are probably not breathing deeply enough to support a truly winning voice.
Think about this: When your doctor places a stethoscope to your chest and says, “Take a deep breath,” does your chest heave and fill out? If you answered yes like most people do, you are not getting a deep breath. Deep breathing actually comes from the diaphragm opening, so it is your gut area that should be dramatically expanding when you breathe…not your chest. Since breath is the essential fuel for the winning voice, you want as much as you can get. So, go get it!
In addition to training the voices of hundreds of people, Charles Michel has been an actor, singer, character voice performer and voice-over announcer.

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.
