A good Voice Over voice is not a normal voice! It is the illusion of a normal voice! In other words, when you speak normally, what you hear as vocal energy and excitement generally translates on microphone as slightly flat. If you use more variety of tone, it will usually not sound inappropriate to your listener. It will simply give you vocal color that will create an attention-getting voice. This is analogous to wearing makeup on TV or in a film. A big masculine TV actor wears a little rouge and lip gloss not to look made up, but to simply look alive. If you use more tone variety than you use in normal life, your voice will simply sound alive!
In addition to training the voices of hundreds of people, Charles Michel has been an actor, singer, character voice performer and voice-over announcer.

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.
