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!

Passionate about singing since childhood, I have a B.A. in music and singing from the University of Washington and spent over a decade with my mentor Lois Hartzell learning the art of classical vocal music. I have sung professionally in many genres - in over 10 languages. Along the way, I brought the world of puppetry to voice for several years as the primary narrator, singer and actor with the Willowbranch Puppet Theatres.

Since 2009, it has been my joy to help others learn to sing and move forward in their creative expressive journeys through songwriting or winning roles in musicals or joining a band or choir. I have extended my education to include pedagogy by training with the NY Singing Teachers Association and taking various seminars about up-to-date singing techniques by vocologists and speech language pathologists. (see below for more details)

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