The sound of your voice and accent are among the biggest factors that producers, directors and casting directors consider when hiring for projects. Make sure you can offer the desired vocals at your next audition by enrolling in this intensive 16-hour workshop taught by TOA's legendary voice instructor Nicolette Chaffey.
