The VFA Master Class in Seattle, more than exceeded my expectations. John Pruden, our guide on this journey, was professional without pretensions, supportive, funny and very knowledgeable.
If a participant didn't "get" a concept, he had a variety of alternative examples to make the idea come through. This is a rare talent, seen only in true teachers and expert communicators. It was clear from the outset, that he knew his field, and wanted us to soak up as much from his expertise as we could in our limited time together.
The studio session was the culmination of a great deal of information, both technical and technique. It was hard work, but ultimately, a satisfactory experience. I ended the weekend, very excited to commence my travels, "In a world of Voice over. . . "Sandy B. - MN
The quality of the materials, the teaching and the voice coaching are the best, and far exceeded my expectations. I am now fully prepared to launch my new career!Cindy A. - CA
I was fortunate enough to get into the January 2008 training session and was glad I did. There is a wealth of information in the training class, hlepful practice sessions; and an invaluable 2 hour demo session. The Voices For All folks know the industry. Before I was just thinking about this career. Now I am prepared to succeed. Thank you Voices For All!Clark F. - PA
Thinking about a voice over career? Donâ€™t know where to start? Want great value for your money? Take the VFA Master Class. Take it as soon as possible. You wonâ€™t be sorry! My class in Chicago was many things--intense and overwhelming and illuminating and encouraging and educationalâ€”but mostly it was fun and confidence-boosting! John is a terrific instructor who uses his humor and creativity to bring out the best in his students, coaxing them to expand their performance skills and leave their self-consciousness behind. He presents the home studio and marketing information in simple, practical terms, explaining clearly whatâ€™s needed to run a voice acting business. Johnâ€™s coaching in the studio is amazing--I was having such a great time, I didnâ€™t want my session to end! I left Chicago feeling exuberant and fully prepared to launch myself into the voice over world. If you want to get into voice over, do yourself a favor: Take this class!Deanna J. - MN
I only have one word to say,FANTASTIC!!!!Eric H. - CA
What a truly awesome experience! I thoroughly enjoyed my VFA Master Class in Chicago this past January. The weekend was quite intensive, but we all learned so much in such a short time.
John was a fantastic teacher and coach. His terrific sense of humor helped to put what could have been daunting information into perspective.
I loved the recording session. John's coaching really helped me to have fun. In fact, I felt as if I was walking on cloud nine for days after.
Thank you all at VFA for giving me the tools and wherewithal to take the next step in my VO career.Elizabeth J. D. - MI
SUCCESS UPDATE: Hi Courtney… I took your class in L.A. a couple of years ago. I was slow at putting all the pieces together, but I am now into doing some audio book work. I recently narrated a little book, “Midlife Crisis Begins in Kindergarten,” which is now posted on You Tube. My client had some technical difficulties marrying my narration to their slide show, so you may hear a little tinny sound, but my voice work still comes through just fine. Here’s the link: www.youtube.com/learningsuccessinst
I did all the voices, including the little kid’s. I’m now narrating a whole self-help book for parents by the same authors. It’s been a fun challenge, and I’m looking forward to doing more books.
My motto: Keep Smiling!
I attended the latest Master Class in Los Angeles, Feb. 8-10, 2008, and it was outstanding! I have attended numerous VO classes in the past three years, but they all dealt with performance techniques and spent very little time teaching the nuts and bolts of running a VO business. Your class was thorough and detailed in every aspect of this business. And your ongoing support system is phenomenal. I am excited about finally making a career of voice-over acting. Thank you for showing me how to make my dreams a reality. Caroline Corser, CA

SUCCESS UPDATE: Hey Everyone, I am so excited to be able to tell you that I have worked in national ad campaigns for AmeriValue Tax Relief and Home Services. I have recorded an instructional video narration for a manufacturer of windows called Hy-Lite. I have narrated for an Alaskan Lighthouse project, and recorded a commercial for Fortune Valley Casino in the Rocky Mountains! Things are going great. Thank you VFA!
This experience was quite amazing. Andrea was an incredibly intelligent and articulate. She made it easy to understand from begining to end. In Albany we were put up at a really nice local hotel, making the visit very comfortable and relaxed. Voice-Over work is something I've been wanting to get into for a long time The VFA team made it no longer a dream, but a reality! If this is something you too have been wanting to get into, please don't hesitate any longer!Patrick N. - CO
The voiceover master class taught me A LOT! The studio session with John taught me EVEN MORE! They both gave me the courage and confidence to go out and book my first voiceover job! I'll get to do two different British-accent voices in a very fun, funny upcoming animated series. [And this is in Hollywood, folks, where there's plenty of competition!] Thanks, VFA!Scott D. - CA
I truly appreciated the information provided in the first and advance voice master class! Good, supportive instructors. Definitely worth the time and the the money!Eve A. - CA
SUCCESS UPDATE UPDATE: 2011 was a good year for me and my business. My big success was booking a series of four radio commercials that ran on Reds Radio in Cincinnati and other regional markets throughout the spring, summer and fall. The spots were for the Regional Tourism Network and encouraged people to come to Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky and experience all the sights available to them. One spot even ran on Fox Sports Ohio TV station with a montage of pictures behind it. I was very excited to be selected for this role. I also did a few on-hold messages for a local chiropractor. He has been a client for a while. As a matter of fact, he was my first client. We actually barter for services for the work I do for him. Click Here to listen to the commercial.
SUCCESS UPDATE: I am a graduate of the January 2008 VFA Masters class. I have been working hard to grow my business since then and am feeling that I am making good progress. From a business side I have had strong success in using networking to find jobs but know I need to do much more on the marketing side. However, through networking alone, in the past few months I have gotten jobs doing radio commercials for a cookie company, The Cookie Crumbs, and a candy company, Esther Price. I have been hired to create telephone messages for two companies, Duro Bag and The Griffin-Tate group and I am brokering a few talents for an innovation company called Idealine. From the corporate narration side I also created the audio for two web videos for a client of Idealine. I'm particularly proud of one of these narrations as it was actually a short story requiring me to create voices for three young girls, a mother and an older woman, and create and add sound effects as well.
You will not be disappointed with the time you spend attending the VFA Master class. I am amazed with the amount of information and practice we had in a very short time. It was incredibly helpful to watch and hear my fellow class members work on the exercises presented by John. The studio session was fun, informative and I am happy with the demos produced for me. The only scary part is that most of the next steps are up to me. But it helps to know that I have resources in John and the VFA team that can provide me input and feedback regarding those next steps.

I just finished the Master Class and it was amazing. Voices For All tells you everything you need to know about getting into the business. I was very impressed with the basic class and quite frankly blown away with the level of detail and support in the Master Class and after. The level of professionalism shown by Voices For All is a rare and precious find in today's world.
If you are interested in getting first class training and support, Voices For All is the way to go!Kathleen K. - NJ
I had such a wonderful experience at the VFA Master Class in Albany NY. Andrea and the rest of her team were energetic, encouraging and just so insightful! I appreciated EVERYTHING they did for the 12 of us and would recommend that if this is your passion, that you register for their class in a city near you! Thanks VFA.Malaika T. - PA
SUCCESS UPDATE UPDATE: I recently landed a small role in an animated, interactive, federal agency training video. With the excellent training/coaching from VFA I was able to enquire, assess, and respond to the needs of the director and consequently was able to nail all the lines, first take! I'm also lined up to work on translating books to CD for the blind at Cal Poly, and can give something back to the community in this way. Thanks Andrea, Paul, Stan and Brett! Couldn't have done it without you! SUCCESS UPDATE: I heard back from the audition a couple of months ago and I got two roles! I'm thrilled and slightly petrified. I go in to the studio on the 12th for 2 hours per character and an acting coach will be present apparently. Any sage advice from you, my VO gurus, would be well appreciated; you've done a fabulous job of prepping me so far, so thank you kindly. Take care and thanks for being awesome.
The VFA Masterclass was an intense and rewarding weekend of tuition and fun! At the end of the class you have a road map and the strategy to pursue a new career. They set you up perfectly to take the next step to becoming a voiceover professional. Thank you everyone! You were all awesome!
I took the Voices for All Master Class and found it an exciting course. Andrea Langworthy presented things in a concise, straightforward manner. She was informative and anxious to help. A well-organized manual complements the course materials, and makes setting up a home studio as simple as following step-by-step directions. I would encourage anyone who has thought of doing voiceovers to check out Voices for All because they are top-notch and deliver what they promise: A good, thorough, honest description of the job possibilities and methods in the world of voiceovers.Don B. - WA
