The First voice school was held in Christchurch in 2005, at a small boutique voice recording studio called "The Voice Booth". The course ran very successfully over the subsequent years, the curriculum and lessons becoming more and more refined through each time it was run.
Now, the course is being offered in Auckland by one of the original founders of the course, Toby Ricketts.
Toby has years of experience on both sides of the microphone, having been a sound engineer in radio for over 20 years, and a voice over for 15 years, with the last 5 years as a full-time professional.
The industry of voice over is changing rapidly with the advent of the on-line marketplace, and there's no better place to learn how to make the most of the changes, than with the NZ Voice Academy.
Due to the popularity of the course extra workshops have been put on more recently.
In 2019 the offering has been expanded to include an 'Advance VO Course' which allows more experienced Voices to grow their repertoire and hone their skills.
