If you (or your child) want to be the next TV star and are interested in broadcasting, video blogging (or vlogging), or any type of on-camera performing, you must be media coached.

You need to know how to have an on-camera presence. You need to know what to say, how to say it, when to react, how to react, and much more.

But, this isn’t just for people looking to be on-air professionally. It’s great if you do any kind of public speaking in your career – whether it be giving a presentation to a group of four, 40, or 400. This kind of media coaching and training will make you a more confident speaker on the clock and in a variety of other settings.

Aizer has been a TV host for 20 years and is pouring his thousands of hours of on-camera experience into the workshops, which are for middle school, high school, and college students.

This is an amazing service for students wanting to pursue a career as a television host, reporter, anchor, or even a vlogger. As a student at Ohio State, I learned along with other peers at the student-run TV station.

1. It Builds Your Self Confidence

Learning valuable communication skills from a seasoned professional will not only improve your self-confidence but set you up for success down the road.

My daughter and I put together a YouTube show called Baking with Bunny. It’s just a silly cooking show we started doing because I needed to try out some new video editing equipment. Then we shot another episode when I needed to test out a new microphone. I kept doing it because I noticed it helped her come out of her shell and gain confidence. (The memories are great to watch too!)

2. You Get Real Experience

When you are coached, you’re not sitting in a chair listening to someone the entire time. You’re actually doing it. Practicing. There is no better way to learn.

Aizer’s workshop curriculum includes anchoring a show, going “live” in the field, interviewing special guests, reading a teleprompter, finding your voice, establishing poise and confidence on camera, and much more. 

Additionally, each student will receive a demo reel of their best performances which they can use to help apply for magnet programs, colleges, grad schools, and even jobs.

3. It Can Advance Your Career

Today, so much is changing – especially technology and the way we market and are marketed to. Video is huge. It’s taking over and can’t be ignored. For this reason, knowing how to handle video is something you want to be at the top of your game on. It’s something that will set you apart from the rest and could make or break a job offer, promotion, or entirely new career.

Plus, professional training like this looks great on a resume!
