In our class, Voice-Over Techniques for Media, we have journeyed through a rich history of voice performers. From hearing the likes of Frank Sinatra to Don LaFontaine, we now arrive at our turn. With Sharon Eisenhour behind us, there isn't much we can't complete. In our early start to this class, we were introduced to many different voice techniques as well as ways to go about using your voice properly for commercial and other creative purposes.

Summer is winding down, Labor Day Weekend has come and gone, and the new school year has begun. Back to work! It's a good time to stop and consider your estate plan, as you're gearing up for fall.
