I offer private coaching and demo production to students hoping to break into Voiceover. I also work with VO actors who find they aren’t booking regularly to help them get a solid 2-3 takes for any audition they wish to work on.
INTITAL INTAKE SESSION – $150
This session is all about getting started. What does your voice sell? What are your strengths? Which areas will require some growth? From this session we figure out next steps for you and your VO career.
VO COACHING – $125/hr
AUDITION SPECIFIC COACHING – $50 for one audition (roughly 30 min)
My team can also cut a demo for coaching students I feel are ready to work. We pride ourselves on taking the time to find the perfect ad copy for your voice and what it sells, creating not just a standard demo, but one that truly showcases what makes your voice unique. We are not a “same day” demo team, instead we take the time to work with you to carefully craft your demo as well as help you learn what your voice sells along the way.
Demos are recorded at Quiet Coyote Studio in Seattle (or a home studio if you are based in LA) and then sent to my team in LA who produce a 60-90 second demo of the highest quality. If you are not based in Seattle or LA we charge less so that you can find a professional studio near you.
If you are not a current student, an initial intake session is required to determine readiness.
$1500 – inclusive of studio fees if vaccinated and based in Seattle or LA
$1200 – outside of Greater Seattle (studio fees not included)
MORE KIND WORDS
You couldn’t ask for a better voice acting instructor! Kira is a rare combination of warm, supportive, a great facilitator, and an excellent communicator, in addition to being extremely knowledgeable, talented, and actively working in the industry she’s instructing on. I feel very confident and prepared to enter the world of voice acting after studying with her! – Emily S.
Kira is a warm, friendly and direct instructor. I feel like I was given a solid foundation of the voice over world including specific, invaluable feedback about my own voice that will benefit me in more ways than just voice over. Thank you! – Allison P.
The intro to VO class that I took from Kira was my first exposure on any level to the VO industry so I went into it with no expectations or thoughts/ideas about voice-over as a possible second career. Out of the gate, even before the end of the first class, it was so evident that Kira was a true pro and seasoned vet in the VO industry. This was not because of any braggadocious actions or comments, it was because of her ability to explain things on a very basic level and to quickly assess someone’s “commercial” niche.
From a coaching perspective, Kira is so great at noticing subtle nuances that, when implemented, make a huge difference in how something is (not only) delivered but also heard/received by the “audience”. What’s even more impressive is how quickly Kira is able to spot these subtle nuances, likely saving someone hours and hours of laboring over a recording they’re preparing for an audition. Also, another mark of a great coach is an ability to challenge someone without belittling or embarrassing them and Kira does this so naturally which creates such a comfortable environment in which to work.
Finally, even if you have no interest at all in VO as a possible source of income, the training, ideas and suggestions that you get from Kira are super helpful in everyday life; it’ll make you more compelling and engaging when interacting with other people in a lot of different scenarios. – Jon B.
