Working with Abbe was the best thing I could have done to kick-start my voice over career. The most skilled and experienced voice over artist in the country, she’s also a wonderful, passionate teacher who genuinely cares about her students’ progress.

Abbe has excellent attention to detail, focusing on every little aspect of the craft until it becomes second nature. Her personality throughout her coaching is warm, uplifting, not to mention inspirational. Her experience in the industry itself shows within each and every session, giving you the confidence to achieve your best in the booth. Throughout my demo making process Abbe chose the strongest pieces and created something that has gained attention from other studios. I can’t think of anybody else who I’d rather work with to improve my craft and help advance my voice over career.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Abbe as a personal voice coach. It was a fabulous experience! You’re in safe hands with Abbe. With so much experience in the voice over business, Abbe generously shares her wealth of knowledge. She instinctively knows how to get the best possible performance and is relentless in her pursuit of the perfect read.

If it wasn’t for Abbe I would still be stuck in my bedroom yelling into my Mic, trying to impersonate the latest Harvey Norman Ad. Her insight and wisdom has helped me improve my skills and boosted my confidence in the booth, identified problem patterns and gave me a set of tools to help me trouble shoot any tricky moments that might arise.

The ‘One Dayer’ sessions are a must for any serious voice over student. The pennies keep on dropping and advice is always only a phone call away.

Abbe is a great mentor and has helped my dream come true.
