My approach is simple.
I teach what I call “the scales of voiceover.” Like learning the scales on the piano. Every great jazz pianist knows the scales inside and out. That’s what makes them express what they want with ease.
When you know and master the “scales of voiceover,” you will see your performance choices easily and will begin to use your natural instincts to generate a relaxed informative performance. When your focus is on “the meaning” of what you are saying it all starts falling into place because you begin to use your natural instincts. Which by the way, is what you do when you are actually “having” a conversation. When learned you will no longer be floating on a “hope and a prayer” to get to the performance you desire, but know exactly what you did to get there. Note this technique is not genre specific. In every genre the main point is “always” about conveying meaning.
To do this, there are 3 simple rules. When you know and master those 3 rules, analyzing scripts is a whole new world and you begin to see every performance choice you have, simply, calmly and easily. Then, and only then, do we begin to focus on “emotion, point of view, and style.”
Most focus on emotion, point of view, and style first; which is to focus on “the sound.” Know that without first having a solid technical execution of a script (the meaning), putting “emotion/style” on a performance is like putting “frosting on mud and calling it cake.”

After my 2nd coaching session with Larry, I booked two national spots and became the voice of a major recruiting company. I know it happened from what he taught me. What I learned from Larry’s voiceover coaching is nothing less than “transformational.”
In working with Larry I realized I had been missing key fundamental elements of voice acting. His technique helped me analyze scripts and discover their meaning and the writer’s intent instantly. It literally transformed my performances by 110% before my eyes. The opportunity to work with Larry as a coach should not be missed.
