Dee Bradley Baker's "All to Know About Going Pro in V.O."



Welcome to my comprehensive overview of the art, craft and career of voice acting! I’ve distilled all I’ve learned for the benefit of both beginners as well as advanced performers seeking to get into voice acting. Having learned much over twenty five+ years in this business, I hope to provide you clear-headed, practical and supportive insight.

Check back often for frequent updates!

Those new to voice acting and all curious amateurs should start by reading my FAQ and VO Myths pages.

More advanced performers

More experienced performers will find specifics on advanced topics like how to make a demo, how to audition, what happens in a session and how get an agent, as well as broader discussion of the career of voice acting for those suited to it.

  1. How much should I pay for voice acting training classes?

    • For a working pro teacher, I’d expect to pay $100 per hour for a private lesson. Maybe less, maybe more, depending on their level of insight. I’m not sure the current going rate. A group class I’d expect to run around $100 per three hour class per week.

  2. what should a website include if I just graduated from college? Does it include things I have done while at college? since there was virtually no acting work due to the pandemic.

    • You can list anything of your performance experience on your site. But I mostly want you focused on creating content that you love, learning, reading, viewing, and getting performance experience any way you can.

  3. I live in a part of the word where acting and voice acting seems like a world away a […] but I’m unsure of where to go from here.
