5 Steps for Voice Over Music

Before we get started on how to choose voice over music, let’s go over five steps you need to do if you want to make the best of your voice over. Remember, knowing what to do and how to do things is the key to making something successful. So here we go:

  1. Make an outline of your work. Well, this is certainly a must. You need to know what you’re doing, why you’re doing it and how you’re supposed to do it. You wouldn’t want to enumerate things randomly as that will just render whatever point you have in mind moot. So plan ahead, list down whatever it is you have in mind and arrange it carefully. You should also take time to consider your audience and what kind of music they probably like listening to. You wouldn’t want to use some absurd nursery rhyme for middle-aged employees after all.
  2. Making the main message. Of course, the main message will be the most important part of your documents. It’s important to sound as clear and direct as possible to make your point clear to your listeners. Don’t try to beat around the bush to make your message longer and make your work seem more significant to listeners. More often than not, your best course of action is to make it as short and clear as possible and make sure it goes in sync with your listeners.
  3. Try to visualize or imagine what you’re going to do. Play it all out in your mind and think it over well. Imagine how you’d react to it if you didn’t actually make it yourself. This is perhaps the best way to gauge the reaction of potential listeners and how to best prepare for any negative reactions, if any.
  4. Ask questions about your work. It’s important to ask the occasional question in your work especially if you feel a tad bit doubtful your own work. So you have to ask yourself, from time to time at least, if you got things right about your work. For instance: Is the music appropriate? Is the music long enough? Etc.
  5. Add instructions on what to do. Once you’ve started on the work proper, you can add some instructions to your work so your listeners can understand more about your voice over presentation.

Now that you know the basics to voice over music, maybe it’s time you got to work on your music voice over!
