About Malya

About Malya Muth

Born in Los Angeles, some of my earliest memories were watching The Jetsons and Johnny Quest with my dad, a cartoonist at Hanna Barbera Studios. On one occasion, he brought me into the studio to be part of the crowd, cheering on Penelope Pitstop. My first voice over job at age seven!

I have a degree in music and singing from the University of Washington and spent many years with my mentor Lois Hartzell learning the art of vocal music. I have sung professionally in many genres - in over 10 languages. Along the way, I brought the world of puppetry to voice as the primary narrator, singer and actor with the Willowbranch Puppet Theatre over 5 years.

It has been my joy to help others learn to sing and move forward in their journeys in my studio for over 14 years.

In 2018 I jumped into commercial voiceover work – and am having great fun narrating and voicing characters for a variety of projects.

Finally - I also train those who use their voices professionally (actors, business leaders, public speakers) in techniques and exercises to be better understood, bring more power to their presentation, stretch their range and up their game whatever their voice needs are.
