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.Patty S. - CA
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.Craig S. - NJ
I am glad that I finally enrolled in the "Voice For All" Advanced class. The curriculum is informative, well organized and manageable. My instructor Eric Hunt has high expectations, is encouraging, and has an "ear" for detail. I look forward to pursuing a successful voice acting career. I recommend "Voice For All" for all who want to pursue a career in the exciting field of voice acting.
I have all the best to say about the Master Class...I have wanted to get into vocal work all my life, but never knew how to do it. Thank you, VFA, for the leadership, the quality, and the fact-rich content that will let me try to make my way in this cool, and exciting profession.Andy B. - OH
SUCCESS UPDATE: I signed a contract with the Breakaway Group headquartered in Denver's Tech Center to be part of the narration team. Work will be ongoing for this national company that specializes in electronic medical record training implementation . Orientation and training tomorrow -- I'm jazzed. Thanks for the training and support! This wouldn't have happened without Voices for All. I'm still working to perfect my editing, but I'm getting better all the time. And, I'm looking forward to the upcoming Animation and Audiobooks Advanced Master Classes.
Voices for All is the answer to questions I’ve had for years. From the initial class early this fall with Patrick to Mike Elmore’s Master Class in November plus communications with staff members in between and since, people have provided information and service beyond what I expected. I’m happy with the initial demos, and believe I’ve learned what it takes to get started. I’m grateful the holidays are over so I can concentrate on the voicing process, marketing, and home studio setup. Sherril Stewart’s advice to tell everyone you are available for voiceovers works! I’m taping a teaser for an award-winning author in a studio on January 14 and may be doing intros for an area program series.

After having taken the introductory class for voiceovers at the local college, I knew this was something I wanted to pursue. I took the Master Class with Mike Elmore as my coach. He was an awesome instructor, giving me great instruction, advice, helpful tips and most of all confidence. Plus, he made the sessions fun! The 90 minute sessions just seemed to fly by. I'm now looking forward to my new career as a voiceover actor. Thanks Mike and Voices For All!Kathryn H. - MI
Hi Leah, I'm about to start my second audiobook. Just wanted you to know. Thanks for all your help, both in class and the very thorough notes you provided during the production of Dangerous Diplomacy. I think it would be impossible to overestimate how much your advice continues to serve me. Thanks a lot!R.K. - CA
I had tried a voice over career several years ago and basically floundered. I attended an Intro to Voice Over session at my local communiversity, reviewed the program with the nice gentleman from VFA who contacted me, and decided that this program offered me the structure, tools and support I need. Mike Elmore, my coach, was professional, helpful and lots of fun to work with. I appreciate the resources available on the web site as well as the home studio support. I have recommended this program to a couple of my friends who have expressed an interest in the field. I'm looking forward to a new career and getting to know more of the VFA crew.Kathleen O. - OH
SUCCESS UPDATE: I was so thrilled to get my first VO job through Voices.com. It was a very easy process and a fun recording to make. I got hired by an advertising agency in Kingston, Jamaica to record PA announcements for a big launch party for LIME. LIME is a cable TV, broadband, telephone and wireless company that serves the British islands in the Caribbean. Tonight, my voice will be played for guests at the big event, which will be aired on four Jamaican TV stations and on Facebook. I got great feedback from the client: “A pleasure working with her, super professional, amazing voice, very, very efficient!” This is great motivation to get out there and look for more work! Thanks VFA for helping me get started!
HI VFA folks! Thanks for getting me started in the world of voice-overs! I just completed my first job! My local marketing is just getting underway. Your Master class and all the support from your staff has really given me the tools to get the job done. I am very excited to be working with my equipment, successfully auditioning for jobs and now completing projects! Your staff is so helpful and supportive. It's been a very positive experience! Thanks so much...

I cannot say enough about the informative Intro class by Bob Puthoff and the comprehensive, exciting Master class by Eric Hunt. From the personal anecdotes, multimedia presentations, and group interaction/discussion to the immensely helpful VFA Manual, intensive production work in putting together the initial, commercial, and narration demos, the experience for me has been extraordinary. The professionalism and the personal touch to details the instructors and all of the support staff exude at VFA should be highly commended. They have helped me to feel more comfortable in this novel world of voice-overs and that "I, too, could be a voice-over artist." It is good to know that all of the combined knowledge, support and inspiration of Voices For All is only a phone call or mouse click away. I highly recommend anyone thinking of entering the voice-over profession to seriously consider signing up for the classes VFA offers. It would be money and time definitely well spent!David F. - IL
There's a saying in life that good things come to those who wait. That certainly is the case for me. After establishing a profile as a narrator on ACX.com and doing a few auditions, I'm pleased to announce that my first audiobook, "No Excuses - The True Story of a Congenital Amputee Who Became a Champion in Wrestling and in Life", was released on Audible.com! In a few days, the title will also be available on Amazon.com and iTunes. Thanks to Eric, Courtney and the entire team at VFA for helping to lay down a supportive foundation that helped to secure this wonderful opportunity for me!

I recently completed the Live Online Master Class with Eric. I'm an experienced actor who decided to switch gears, and VO work seemed like a good way to continiue to utilize my existing skills. The class with Eric was extremely convenient, comprehensive and invaluable! I can't imagine getting the information, technical knowledge, coaching, feedback and resources VFA provides on my own without years of experience through trial and error and research.
Eric was a responsive, clear and helpful teacher with lots of knowledge and expertise. I found the course acting frameworks and techniques for analyzing and interpreting scripts to be solid, practical and flexible for the wide variety of genres in the field.
Not only do I have a great overview of the profession, the know-how to get my own studio started, and a roadmap to navigate the business, but, I also feel secure in the ongoing support that VFA offers when I need it.
I began building my home studio this week and using my VFA training and workbook to set-up and master the recording equipment. In a few weeks i'll be ready to cut my demo!
Thank you Voices for All!
