Anonymous asked: I want to go into voice acting but I can't sing. Do I have to be able to? Is it beneficial? Also, how can I expand my range? (I can't do higher voices very well.)
Absolutely not. Sure, it’d help you out if the character needs to sing, but otherwise, there’s absolutely no requirement for being able to sing. I really only sing comedically more than anything.
For expanding your range, just listen to all sorts of voices or think of character types and pick out ones you think are interesting and do your own take on them. According to Billy West, every “bad” impression becomes a totally unique, different voice, and I think that’s great advice.
