Join the Clubhouse

If you’re a voice actor seeking feedback, education, and community, I’d like to invite you to join the Voice Actors at Home PH Clubhouse. I’ve said before that feedback is currency in this industry (and let’s be honest, this is true for so many other things).

Now, with that clear, let’s talk about what the Clubhouse is all about.

And this is especially true in any creative endeavor, like voice work. As artists, we’re prone to falling in love with our own work, or in our case, the sounds of our own voices. So we often find ourselves repeating patterns and forming bad habits. Worse, we don’t notice when this happens.
