Fun, inspirational, and informative! You'll wish you took the class years ago... 

"Tish will change the way you think about voiceover. Yes, she'll deliver countless juicy tips and tricks of the trade – but even better, she'll give you deep insights into the process of mastering the art of VO and help you develop your plan of attack. YSDVO is fun, inspirational, and astoundingly informative. You'll wish you took the class years ago."

Highly recommend this class! 

Comprehensive, interactive, mind-expanding, fun... Tish delivers a wealth of invaluable, always up‑to‑date information. Loved her focus on how to develop a consistent energy to support the work. I came away not only with improved technique, but with a clear sense of both how to continue to develop my craft on my own and what to expect in my professional pursuit of V.O. jobs. Highly recommend this class!”

Before I even finished the class, I booked a huge video game!

"So I took Tish's class, which was an amazing overview of the voiceover world. With her help I uncovered my ability to do video games, and before I even finished the class, I had booked a HUGE video game which gave me work for the next nine months. Tish was extremely insightful and gave me amazing direction and guidance. The money I made on the video game helped me buy an amazing microphone and make a video game reel, with plenty left over. Thank you, Tish. You are amazing!"

Gave me the confidence I needed to win over the first agency I met with... 

"Tish is great at demystifying and has helped me see that V.O. is a craft that's fun, fulfilling, lucrative, and accessible. Tish gave me the confidence I needed to win over the first agency I met with, and through her I received and booked my first audiobook audition. I so value Tish's guidance, wisdom and support and can't thank her enough for all she's done to help me launch a very cool career.”
