Our Voiceover Classes
Voiceover Classes with Steve are like nothing you’ve ever participated in before! Even if you’re just starting out this is one of the most unique curriculums you’ll find online when it comes to acting AND voice acting! You can choose from an All Levels type of in-depth training once a month, to monthly Live Coaching on actual working issues that directly affect your career. Here’s what one of our students had to say about our Voiceover Training…
“Steve’s classes are fantastic! Both the teaching series and the advanced classes have been an amazing experience and I have learned so much! The teaching series has covered so many topics and Steve has done a masterful job explaining them. It has helped expand my knowledge in the technical, business, and artistic side of voice acting. Steve also takes time to answer student questions in the Q&A portion which has opened up wonderful discussions. In the advanced series, I personally have learned so much from the one-on-one time Steve takes with each student. He tailors each session to what the student wants and directs and counsel[s] them on the chosen topic. These classes, both the teaching series and the advanced series, have built my confidence and skills, and I am very grateful to have met so many wonderful people.”

In his free time
When he’s not spitting into microphones, Steve loves to get outside. Hiking, swimming, scuba diving, playing with his animals, meditation, travel… And hanging out with friends and family. Disgustingly normal stuff! In fact, wherever he happens to be in the world, Steve forces himself to be outside for at least 20 minutes per day just to breathe real air and get away from Blumvox Studios electronics. He’s also passionate about being of service, volunteering to help others, and of course loving up the fans at conventions (appropriately, of course). In fact Steve travels to conventions in more than 20 cities per year to meet the fans personally. Lately, the nerdy side takes over once in a while, causing instances of D&D, Renaissance faires, voiceover classes, hunts for collectibles, and watching movies and TV shows that he should have watched years ago. And eventually, he’ll get back to his love/hate relationship with his guitars.
