SETTING THE EXPECTATIONS:
I wish to set the correct expectations right from the beginning hence please read through the following carefully:
1. Please do not come with the expectation of becoming a VO artist in one day. This workshop is introductory - this will show you your options and throw light on the things you need to know and do, you will have to do your homework and hardwork to become a VO artist.
2. While I will be available on a need basis to help you out once in a while post the workshop, kindly do not expect me to handhold you till you become an artist. What you become post this workshop is totally dependent on your interest levels and commitment.
3. Certain voices work and certain voices dont. While I will be happy to assess your voice and give you a direction during the workshop, please do understand that not all who have a voice can become an artist. However, if you become one, I will be the happiest!
