Gusto Kong Maging Voice Talent at the Manila International Book Fair 2016

Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales, releases the very first voice acting book in the Philippines entitled “Gusto Kong Maging Voice Talent”.

Pocholo has made his mark in the voice acting industry, not only because he has voiced thousands of commercials, anime, foreign TV shows, children’s programs, video games, audiobooks, etc., but because he has opened the door of the industry to aspiring voice artist through his school, the Philippine Center for Voice Acting. Since 2005, the school – also the first and only in the Philippines – has produced more than 1,000 graduates, and many of them have been making their names as voice artists, broadcasters, hosts and even public speakers.

Pocholo formed the idea of writing a voice acting book because of the big demand for his voice acting workshop. “There have been countless times when I have been asked if our school has a branch in the provinces, if we can take more than 20 students per batch, or if we can do one more batch for the year. So while we may not be able to reach as much people as we want with our voice acting workshop, this book will be able to do so, as it will be available in bookstores all over the Philippines. It’s our very own workshop-in-a-bottle!” the VoiceMaster said.

In celebration of his 20 years in the voice acting industry, Pocholo launches “Gusto Kong Maging Voice Talent” at the Manila International Book Fair. The book is sold at an introductory price of Php 100 before it hits the leading bookstores nationwide at retail price. He wil also have his book launching and signing on September 17, 1-3pm during the book fair, at the Psicom booth 446-448.

With his vision of making the Philippines the center of voiceover excellence in Asia, Pocholo is looking forward to develop more passionate voice artists through his book. “As I always say, the voice is our most powerful instrument. It is the only instrument that can start a war or say ‘I love you.’ And in voice acting, there’s limitless opportunities waiting for you to discover, develop and maximize your voice.”

The 37th Manila International Book Fair is organized by Primetrade Asia Inc., in partnership with Book Development Association of the Philippines, Philippine Booksellers Association Inc., Overseas Publishers’ Representatives Association of the Philippines, and Asian Catholic Communicators Inc.

The VoiceMaster Writes a Book on Voice Care

What is your most important tool as a teacher? Is it your lesson plan? Your books? Your intelligence and positive mental attitude? When asked, teachers are likely to forget the very essential tool that they intensely use above everything else – the VOICE.

Teachers make up the largest population of “professional voice users,” or the people whose occupations rely heavily on the use of the voice. In addition, teachers have far greater vocal demands than others – speaking for up to 6 hours a day on a daily basis, to 40 to as much as 70 students, in an environment that is not always conducive to teaching. Despite the importance of voice in their vocation, however, teachers get very little to no training on how to USE and NURTURE it.

Voice Care for Teachers written by the VoiceMaster

Voice artist, broadcaster and motivational speaker Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales brings to the teaching community his first book, “Voice Care for Teachers: Save your Voice, Save your Career”. It is filled with theoretical and practical information on how to care for the teacher’s voice, as well as how to use voice acting skills for the 21st century learners. The book includes exercises, techniques and tools that will make the reader examine their voice very closely, perhaps for the first time in their life.

Pocholo is also the founder of Voice Care Philippines, a non-profit organization that aims to equip all professional voice users with the knowledge, tools and techniques to save their voice and save their career. Pocholo believes that the voice is the most powerful and miraculous God-given gift, which is why it became his advocacy to teach people to protect and care for it, especially those who depend on it to accomplish their life’s work.

Voice Care for Teachers is also offered as a 2-day workshop to schools all over the country.
