Thanks so much for all your support! It has been a wonderful experience full of great people and interesting information.
It takes so much patience to teach all of this information. Jeff was wonderful to work with and really knows his stuff, 
especially when dealing with a non- technological student, Lori is a beautiful woman full of first hand knowledge and experience. She was always present, even as wildfires threatened her home and business. I can’t say enough about all the wonderful people I interacted with who are part of Voices For All. Keep up the good work! Thank you again.

Cynthia P. - FL



I've learned so much about the business. More than I ever could have on my own. Leah is great to work with and really cares about her students! I'm excited to step into this new adventure as a voice talent.

Kristi S. - IL



Great experience. Mike Elmore was awesome and I look forward to working with the VFA team in the future. I am up and running now, submitting for jobs almost everyday. If you're looking to get a jumpstart on your future career or "side hustle" this can be it.

Justin William P. - CA



I have recently completed the VFA Gold Class which I found thoroughly stimulating. From my very first contact with VFA representatives I have found your organization and staff to be highly supportive and professional. Having first considered voiceover work some 25 years ago (and having been quickly discouraged by the seeming impossibility of breaking into this field), it is clear that your organized educational component, professional coaching and ability to supply equipment, software, demo tapes and the essential "how to" information to get started has been the missing ingredient. A special thanks also to my coach Aaron Fischer for his insights, good humor and flexibility in scheduling our sessions. Now, as they say, the rest is up to me. When I begin soliciting voice work, I'll certainly be sharing any success stories with VFA! Best regards, Howard Bodner

Howard B. - CA



The masterclass was such a wonderful experience. Everyone was very helpful and knowledgeable. My demos came out great! Overall a truly great program.

Jennifer C. - CA



Voices For All, is an excellent resource and a good introduction to the voice over industry. The LOMC gold class specifically, will help you get your feet wet with the most commercial and narration training and marketing education! It will also equip you with the hardware and software you need to succeed! You will also get access to resources that will help you find work, and not to mention a lifetime of advice! Everyone I've talked to at VFA is warm and helpful! If you are looking for an exciting career in voice overs, it starts here! Things you need to know up front: You will be responsible for building your own studio, this cost is not included in your class. If you want to specialize in a particular niche of voice over work, it will require more education and training beyond your LOMC Master Class.

Tim W. - MD



Taking the Master Classes with Voices for All was one of the best experiences of my life. Aaron Fischer, my teacher for these classes, is an incredible voice talent and a great teacher. I not only received excellent vocal training, I learned how to build a professional home studio and how to market myself effectively as a voice actor. There is a lot to know, but Voices for All is the place for voice over education and I'm so happy to be a lifetime member of this organization. I'm so excited to be launching my career in voice overs and I can't wait to take more advanced classes with VFA in the future. I can't recommend it enough. Their classes are the best.

Matthew P. - MN



It's been a blast doing classes with Aaron Fischer. He makes it fun and interesting to learn about the vast realm called voiceovers. The whole crew is very patient and helpful for the newbie testing his wings. I'm pleased. I would recommend Voices For All to anyone who wants to explore voicing for fun, work, profit or career. These folks are the real deal. Not a predatory sales team that promises the moon but doesn't deliver.

Jim W. - OR



Mike Elmore has been my instructor over the 27 weeks that I have enrolled in the VFA school. Mike has been extremely professional, patient, well informed, helpful, prompt, thorough, knowledgeable, positive, uplifting and an all around cheerful teacher and overall good guy. I would highly recommend Mike and would hope to deal with him when I need support and advice. Best in show!

James B. - MA



Voices For All has given me wings for my forever dream. I was searching for a career that would fulfill my creative skills along with imagination. VFA is that foundation. They taught me so much, from the start and even after finishing the course. I highly recommend VFA for everyone, because "Everyone has a voice, the brave speak the wise listen."

Voices For all has been instrumental in making the difference in my newly launched career in voice over. Over the past two years I have received continued support in the areas of marketing, technique, education, and technical support. I have become friends with many of the staff to the point where it feels like "family." They are real people in real time and only a phone call away. I refer to my "workbook" frequently and it is a well used tool. I have access to updates when they surface so I am up to the minute in an ever changing, fast paced career path.Voice acting requires an education. Voices for All will always be at the top of my list.

Julanne D. - AZ



VFA has been a tremendous help to me in getting started in the voice over field. Mike Elmore was my instructor and I found him to be extremely knowledgeable and friendly, which made it all the easier to learn from him. The lifetime support guarantee is exactly that. I've had issues with my computer and the team has more than gone out of their way to insure I'm able to fix what's wrong. I would whole heartedly recommend this course to anyone wanting to break into voice work!

Jason L. - FL



SUCCESS UPDATE: Hey Leah...I did it!! Got my first gig recording a couple of voicemails (in-house and after hours) for a local digital marketing firm. Upwork client did not post a script, so I submitted a voicemail greeting that I had from a previous unsuccessful proposal. Client liked my voice, sent me their scripts, and hired me before hearing a sample. I delivered their audios the next day, they gave me a great review, and they are interested in hiring me for some upcoming animated videos! Been regularly auditioning for work on Voices, and while I haven't scored a gig yet, I am getting likes! Positive reinforcement goes a long way! Thanks for all you've taught me (so far...) and thanks VFA!


Have you ever heard a VOICE in your head that said, "I've always wanted to try my hand at voiceovers"? Next time, say it out loud with Voices For All! I finally listed to that voice, and after my Intro Class with Aaron, whose enthusiasm and talent really fueled my interest, I could not wait to start the Master Classes! Master Classes with Leah were inspirational; her talent and experience, as well as her innate ability as an instructor, brought out more ability in me than I initially thought I had. Her guidance in the technique and business side of voiceovers was invaluable, and as importantly, she became a friend - I always looked forward to our Friday afternoon sessions. My conversations with Sherril were always informative, her enthusiasm and ability to be "the answer grape" were greatly appreciated. Kristie's attention to detail was always evident in the assistance she provided. The task at hand is auditioning, and I feel that my experience with Voices For All has prepared me well. Thank you!

Sherri J. - IL



I highly recommend Voices for All. Every week, I looked forward to my session with Mike and believe he and Voices for All did everything they could to get me started in the voiceover industry. The full support I received setting up my home studio and the feedback while creating my demos gave me the confidence in what I was doing as I went on to audition. If you are ready to put the work into a successful voiceover career, Voices for All will provide you everything you need to get started.

Jeremy F. - IL



For much of my life I've been told I should be on the radio or televivsion with my voice. I've checked into voiceover work on several occasions but had poor experiences with those offering training. The opportunity to take a class offered by VFA occurred about a year ago. I received what I felt was an accurate appraisal of my abilities. This was followed by a one-on-one class with Mike Elmore and an honest evaluation by him. Based on the two evaluations, I decided to take the Master Class with VFA with Mike as my coach. It was well worth the time and expense. I have thoroughly enjoyed doing voiceover and am looking forward to a potential career as a voiceover artist. VFA has provided an excellent class and continues to provide excellent, ongoing support. If you are considering voiceover as a career or just a part-time possible opportunity, I highly recommend them.

Ramsey H. - CA



After a long career as an elementary school teacher where many of my former students told me what they remembered most of their year in 4th grade was how much they enjoyed me reading orally to them. I wondered if I could use this in a post teaching career. Came upon VFA, took the intro. course with Mike Elmore, got his HONEST feedback, signed up for the Master Course (again with Mike), and have been active in the field for a couple years. To be honest, it is hard work to make your way in this business. it requires a solid foundation like I received from VFA, the willingness to keep improving, being teachable, having a thick skin, and treating it like your own business. I feel I was very well prepared for beginning my "Act 2". Also, love the lifetime support they provide after the Master Course. If you're even toying with the idea of getting into VO you owe it to yourself to check out VFA ~ great people!

Tim M. - MI



I set up my profiles and started auditioning to just about everything they sent my way! After 3 weeks of solid auditioning, I was shortlisted for a couple of jobs on Voicerealm and got some 'likes' on voices.com! This past Tuesday, I received my first job on Voices.com, a 60 second promotional web video which turned into an additional 30 second video too and then on Wednesday, got another job for a promo video! So... Well happy! I feel more confident now and look forward to more jobs! Just wanted to let you know I've been putting what you taught me to good effect and am beginning to reap the rewards!

Robert S. - NY



In deepest appreciation for all the people at VFA for their continued support. Aaron Fischer, coach extraordinaire, who coached with enthusiasm and a love for the game. He is professional, on time, supportive and motivational. Sherrill Stewart who welcomed me on board and supported me through some difficult passages in the process of training. Rene Morales who fielded my questions and got me the answers I needed to continue the journey For the technicians who guided me through the process of setting up my home studio. Jeff Wildermuth who continues to stay the course until I have this editing process figured out!  Marilu Benedetti for keeping my accounts straight. I appreciate all of you and those I have not mentioned by name in the VFA family. I am sincerely grateful to all of you as I embark on a career as a Voice Over actor! Julanne Dalke

Julanne D. - AZ



SUCCESS UPDATE: Completed my first invoice to a client. Small job and a first paying job. Was available and known to client via demo and website. Had expertise and background necessary for the 3-4m narration, including narrating questions with already-recorded answers. Worked with a local studio were I live; home studio in my future.


The master class gave me tools to move forward, helping me understand basics and what additional questions to ask about voice over acting. Nothing better can happen after taking a class than the feeling that says, "I like this, and I want to learn more."

Paul R. - MN



I have to say that Voices For All is an incredible resource and well worth the investment. I took the Master Class with Mike Elmore as my instructor and the advice and guidance he gave me has been instrumental in finding work in the VO industry. With the tools I've been given, I have booked VO work for radio ads from Washington, to Illinois, to Georgia. I couldn't be happier with the success I've found already and cannot wait to see what the future holds. A big Thank You to everyone at Voices For All!

David J. - WA



SUCCESS UPDATE: I just landed my first paid gig for a commemorative coin. WHAT A RUSH!!! I have done a few gigs for free, but somehow it seems to be even better when someone offers to pay you for it. I can't remember the last time I was this excited. At last I can really call myself a professional.
The class was just what i needed, and the demos... WOW!!

Walt H. - WA



I first learned about Voices for All through my local town, Bend, Oregon and met Bob Putoff. He was very informative, entertaining, great with feedback, and an awesome instructor. I then was contacted by Sherrill and she assisted me in getting signed up for a Master Class. Mike Elmore entered my life and it was all over at that point. I was truly hooked. Mike is not only a very successful voiceover actor but very patient, helpful, understanding, and a fellow small dog lover (huge bonus in my world). Mike was great for me to learn under. Through Mike I became introduced to another alumni and up and coming voiceover actor, Matt Martin (now has his own success record). Matt was very helpful to me as he could relate to my struggles and was a great support person to lean on. Then in walks Leah Fredrick, ah Leah, you are my idol. When I grow up I want to be as good as you. Leah was my instructor in the Advanced Class for Audio books. Leah has too many books for me to recall and several years of experience as an audiobook voiceover, not to mention the voice of Betty from the Adventures of Betty, and on and on are her credits. Leah is a no nonsense instructor, hilarious to be around, and I am so glad to call her my mentor. René Morales has been great at helping me with getting myself motivated and not be afraid of doing this. I can only hope and dream to be able to call Voices for All my employer some day and work with up and coming new talent also. Thank you everyone for your ongoing, undying help, and never ending support.

Summer P. - OR



SUCCESS UPDATE: I'm so excited.  I am in the process of getting my studio set up, etc.  In the meantime, I did get a small telephone greeting job with the Acupuncture and Herbal Clinic of Gilroy.  I did a trade, so it wasn't real money, but I enjoyed it.  The owner was pleased and impressed that I did it in one take!!!!  She is happy and so am I.  I am looking forward to getting work and getting paid!  Thank you.

I've attended the Master Class Boot Camp in Albany (in May 2012), taught by VO artist Eric Hunt. I was a little bit nervous at first because I wanted to be a voice-over artist since I was a child and I had discouraging feedback from another voice-over studio previously. I was elated with the class! Eric was a knowledgeable, friendly, and encouraging teacher. I've discovered and learned the ins and outs of the VO industry, plus I liked rehearsing with my fellow classmates. There was a ton of support and positive feedback from Eric and classmates. Additionally, I was impressed with the skills and talent when my demo was being created. Again, Eric, plus the engineer, were encouraging and guided me wonderfully through the session. I felt inspired and really thrilled that I had chosen to attend the boot camp! I have my own website at teresayourchoiceforvoice.com and I will conquer the world of voice-overs. Thank you, Voices For All!

Teresa A. - NJ



What an incredible experience on this wonderful and exciting journey. The staff at Voices For All have been simply phenomenal. I have received incredible support and encouragement from each and every one of them. The introductory class with Bob Puthoff was exactly what I needed to get me started and excited to start this new career. The one on one instruction and mentoring from Eric Hunt has really helped to bring out my talents and hone my skills. It has been hard work, fun, and a great learning experience. Courtney Thayer has been relentless in making sure that my home studio is highly professional. I really have the entire Voices For All community to thank for all the success that I know is coming my way.
