Barbara Alpert

Confident, authoritative, fast talker, sexy-low

Voice Description

My voice is strong and confident, with very clear diction for making certain every point of a text is emphasized and memorable. I communicate warmth and enthusiasm easily. I am comfortable with speaking quickly when there is a lot of copy to be communicated in a short time.

I can also inject humor and interest into a narrative text. As a teacher with extensive read-aloud experience, I know how to hold a child's interest. As a veteran workshop presenter, I have a smooth and professional delivery of all types of business or educational content.

I have experience as a medical editor and can easily and comfortably read copy that includes multisyllabic drug names.

When the material calls for it, I can also deliver a deep, sexy tone.

My Voice Experience

My primary experience to date has been radio announcing and live workshop presentations. I've spoken to large and small groups in professional settings. I rarely need to read from cards or notes; I connect skillfully with my audience.

I'm ready to use my skills and technique to create memorable and compelling voice over recordings for a multitude of purposes and media.

My Training

I have a BA in theater from Brandeis University, where I focused principally on stage management and lighting design, but I also studied acting and vocal performance.

I had a regular radio program on WBRS-FM, Boston, for 4 years, during which I wrote and delivered news content, interviewed guests, and programmed music shows in different genres.

I have a MS in Education from Lehman College/City University of New York and ten years' experience as a classroom teacher, workshop leader, tutor trainer, and master of ceremonies at large events.

I'm a published author of more than 30 children's books and the author or coauthor of more than 40 books for the adult trade market.

I'm a published author of magazine articles for publications including Cosmopolitan, Hemispheres, Car and Driver, and ParentSource.
