Sunday MuseIf you've always wanted to do voice-overs specifically for cartoons, we've got some great news!

The prolific Sunday Muse, whose voice-over work can be heard on Total Drama Island, Undergrads, Rolie Polie Olie, Care Bears, JoJo's Circus, Time Warp Trio, Jane and the Dragon, Odd Job Jack, The Future is Wild, Jimmy Two-Shoes, and Arthur & Franklin - to name a few - is teaching a new workshop with her company Great Big Voices.

As a leading voice actor and teacher at NYU's Children's Theatre Company, and the National Theatre School, Sunday has become celebrity voice actor and the "go-to" person in the animation voice-over industry. Her students have gone on to book roles in major cartoon series including, Franklin (Nickelodeon), Chuck & Friends, Cat In The Hat, and Super Why (PBS).

Join VOX Daily to learn what's involved with her course.

Sunday Muse helps her students learn the techniques to achieve stand-out performances that are unique, original and entertaining.

She developed a voice acting technique she calls "Actively on the Spot," which teaches students how to animate their bodies and voice through connecting to the emotions and actions of the characters they are playing.
