"Jake and Bridget did a fantastic job setting me up as an audiobook narrator. They were so knowledgeable about the art and techniques of audio book narration and they gave me great technical advice on everything from purchasing equipment and software to setting up my studio and addressing the inevitable technical hitches. My success is directly attributable to their support and skill."

"As an actor and an audiobook lover, I wanted to try my hand at narration. I began coaching with Bridget and Jake. They are not only extremely knowledgeable, but they are also kind, accessible, and patient. They are passionate and enthusiastic in their coaching which aided in my confidence to begin auditioning. Within a couple of weeks after I began to audition, I booked and produced my first audiobook! I could not have done it without them. I know that they are there for me whenever I need them and I will be forever grateful for their support and guidance."
While our business is built around audiobook production, we feel a responsibility to share knowledge from our training and careers with creatives looking to branch into narration and audiobook work. We emphasize open, honest, and direct communication to give students real-world information about the industry, backed by experience.
We are equipped to teach in classrooms, both individually and as a team, in order to facilitate the best approach for students. We believe in tailoring our approach to the needs of your students to teach them about what audiobook production takes, the paths to access it as a career, and what success looks like from within the industry.
Bordeaux V.O. workshops are based in lecture, discussion, visual/auditory real-life examples, and practicums. Our workshops have proven effective both virtually and in-person, and range from individual coachings to large classroom settings.
While we have specific lessons and modules that we can draw upon, our approach is much more effective as a result of collaboration in order to meet the specific needs of your students. We would love to discuss how we can tailor our instruction to better match your situation.
