40 Voices Challenge

Round 2

After a little Summer break, it’s time to consider what voices to try to add to the 40 Voices Table.  I’ve decided that Round 2 will be based around the theme of Children’s stories and poems.  There is plenty of material to choose from and I hope you find some to your liking.  I’m certainly looking forward to working on them!  Voice Challenges 9-16 will be as follows:

9.   Boy –

Child’s Dream of a Star, Charles Dickens
10. Young Man – Lazy Jack, Fable
11. Middle-Age Man – The Land of Counterpane, by Robert Louis Stevenson
12. Old Man – Young and Old, by Charles Kingsley
13. Woman – The Old Woman in the Wood, A fairy tale of the
Brothers Grimm
14. Sound Effects – Little Dorothy and Toto, by L. Frank Baum
15. Animals – Cat and Mouse in partnership, A fairy tale of
the Brothers Grimm
16. In Song – A scene from Harry Potter, by JK Rowling

So I’d best get to work!  Stay tuned for more voices challenges.

40 Voices Table

This is the table that I plan to fill in as I work on developing character voices for each of the categories listed – please do check back later on to see how I am getting on! I’ve decided on 5 variations for each character type, so lots to work on; 40 voices, in fact!


Hi, and welcome to this blog. The intention is to share my attempts to step into the profession of voice acting and extras work. My professional background is working as a project manager in the public sector, but I have trod the boards at amateur level in plays as well as in musicals and operas. I also run an online roleplay, which I hope will provide some valuable voice experience – more on this later.

In the meantime, I hope you will enjoy the journey with me as I explore what it takes to become a professional and also laugh (but hopefully not too much) at my vocal attempts – part of the ’#40 voices’ series.
