Enter the very exciting and potentially lucrative world of voice over work. Please let me introduce myself and tell you more. I am Kirk Johnson, Jr., owner of KJ Audio, Inc., in Chicago and founder of Voice Over Tech Chicago.

What we can do

WELL HERE IS HOW TO GET STARTED

You may have wanted to look into voice over courses and didn’t know how to go about getting started. Well that is what this website is designed to do . . . to introduce you to the world of voice over acting and offer you an easy and convenient way to see if voice over acting is something for you.

Don’t worry that you may not have the greatest voice. To get hired for voice work, it’s not always a question of having a great voice, it’s more about having “the right voice they are looking for.” Can you smile, laugh, be energetic, serious – emotions like that? Then you have the makings to perform an awesome voice over delivery. Voice over work is used in many everyday situations like radio spots and TV commercials. But what you may not realize is it is also used on E-Book narrations, internet pod casts, movie trailers; everything from video games to corporate training videos use voice over actors. As you will see, all kinds of people, every age, type and style you could imagine, do this sort of work.

By now you might be saying, it sounds good but how do I know I can do it. Like a lot of things in life, to find out if it’s right for you, you just have to bite the bullet and try it. What I always suggest to people who may be interested in voice acting is that you find an experienced and professional voice coach first; take a voice over lesson or two, and decide if voice acting is something you really want to pursue.
