VOICEOVER ARTIST SUCCESS SECRETS
by David Kaye
I’m David Kaye. Whenever I speak at or teach voice over classes or am interviewed about being a voiceover artist, sooner or later someone asks me, “What’s been the most surprising thing about having a career in voice overs?”
There are many technical aspects of voice work — things like microphone placement, learning how to bring the copy off the page…and all the technical stuff you need to do to be successful behind the mic.
But one of the biggest things is something I learned from a mentor of mine, Maurice Tobias. She folded her arms and said, “You know, you have got to take care of yourself. You have to look after your body. You don’t realize the pace in this industry.”
You could be running around in the car all day, going from session to session. That is what you want; you want to be busy. But when you get busy, you must take care of yourself. That surprises people who think, “Well, wait a minute. It’s just standing behind a microphone.”
Well, there is a pace you need to keep up. There is a mental pace, a physical pace. And if you are like me and like to stand the whole time, you are standing four to six hours a day.
You’d better have an outlet. You’d better look after yourself. And I mean going to the gym and working out or being active or doing SOMETHING. It takes a lot of energy to do voiceovers fulltime.
You may think I’m overemphasizing this, but think about it: If you are doing live taping or a lot of shows, your heart rate will just be zooming! And if you are in a situation where you need to do a live announce, or you are called upon to do some sort of voice over work, you are nervous. Your heart is banging away.
And you are burning calories. Your body is going through stress. Five or six TV stations need you to get their stuff done right away. You are cranking it out. You’ve got to go.
You are hopping into your car, your session is over in Santa Monica, and you’ve got to drive 30 miles to go someplace. Your heart rate is elevated and your body needs you to be able to take that pounding.
That is a day in, day out thing. So it is important you eat well and to take care of yourself, to look after your body. That goes a long way toward making some of the long days bearable. It is one of the surprising things that people don’t think about. But for a voice acting professional, It is really important.

Instrumental Music in Public Worship: History Surrounding the Westminster Assembly
FROM: “INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC IN THE PUBLIC WORSHIP OF THE CHURCH”
By John L. Girardeau (Still Waters Revival Books,  2000), pp. 132, 133.
Before the Westminster Assembly of Divines undertook the office of preparing a Directory of Worship, the Parliament had authoritatively adopted measures looking to the removal of organs, along with other remains of Popery, from the churches of England. On the 20th of May, 1644, the commissioners from Scotland wrote to the General Assembly of their church and made the following statement among others: “We cannot but admire the good hand of God in the great things done here already, particularly that the covenant, the foundation of the whole work, is taken, Prelacy and the whole train thereof extirpated, the service-book in many places forsaken, plain and powerful preaching set up, many colleges in Cambridge provided with such ministers as are most zealous of the best reformation, altars removed, the communion in some places given at the table with sitting, THE GREAT ORGANS AT PAUL’S AND PETER’S IN WESTMINSTER TAKEN DOWN (emphasis added), images and many other monuments of idolatry defaced and abolished, the Chapel Royal at Whitehall purged and reformed; and all by authority, in a quiet manner, at noon-day, without tumult.”1 So thorough was the work of removing organs that the “Encyclopaedia Britannica” says that “at the Revolution most of the organs in England had been destroyed.”2
When, therefore, the Assembly addressed itself to the task of framing a Directory for Worship, it found itself confronted by a condition of the churches of Great Britain in which the singing of psalms without instrumental accompaniment almost universally prevailed. In prescribing, consequently, the singing of psalms without making any allusion to the restoration of instrumental music, it must, in all fairness, be construed to specify the simple singing of praise as a part of public worship. The question, moreover, is settled by the consideration that had any debate occurred as to the propriety of allowing the use of instrumental music, the Scottish commissioners would have vehemently and uncompromisingly opposed that measure. But Lightfoot, who was a member of the Assembly, in his “Journal of its Proceedings”3 tells us: “This morning we fell upon the Directory for singing of psalms; and, in a short time, we finished it.” He says that the only point upon which the Scottish commissioners had some discussion was the reading of the Psalms line by line.
