Ready For A Career In Voiceover?

You may well be, but before you leap, let’s take a look at what you’ll need to be skilled at..or know, to become a successful voice over artist!

Don Bridges

My voice over career had stalled.  I used to do 2 or 3 a week and it had been a couple of years since I’d had any work at all.  I consulted Abbe.  She listened to my old demo, made some very constructive criticisms about what worked and what didn’t and we agreed on what…

Nicola Paull

Abbe is not your average buddy, and she’s not your average voice over professional either. She has an amazing ear for nuance and atmosphere and a depth of insight into the making of a good recorded voice outcome, unsurpassed by anyone I have ever known and an uncanny ability to communicate that to people she…

Erik Chess

As a voiceover artist working mainly in the retail side of the business, I was keen to pick Abbe’s brain to learn more about script analysis and finding my voice for natural and character reads, so I did the  ‘One Day Studio Intensive’.  Abbe’s talent at teaching how to pick the relevant and important words…

Abbe Holmes is a living voice legend, not in a Wizard of Oz kind of way, but in a real human-who-you-trust-with-your-career way.  I’ve worked with Abbe now for years, from voice coaching, to voice-over theory and practice, to crafting my current (and best ever) demo, and consistently she has given me the insight and confidence…

Elke Osadnik

After working with several voice over coaches, no one comes close to Abbe.  She’s not interested in you becoming a ‘good’ voice artist with a ‘good’ demo – she wants you to be brilliant. Abbe has a ridiculously finely tuned ear and she’ll ‘tweak your work until you nail it.’  Abbe is not about gimmicks…

Liza Dennis

Abbe is an extremely generous woman, mentor and coach… I can’t recommend her highly enough to anyone wanting to break into the industry or needing to brush up on skills & vocal techniques. The One Day Studio Intensive was invaluable to me giving me great technique skills for working with scripts in a studio environment.  Abbe assisted…

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. I made my demo with Abbe and was accepted by Australia’s leading voice over agency, EM Voices.  I can’t recommend her highly enough – you won’t find a teacher with more expertise in the world of voice over than Abbe. She’s the greatest.

Working with Abbe was such a privilege and what I gained in confidence, I owe to her valuable knowledge of the voice and the industry. I contacted Abbe to produce a new demo and to broaden my skills and abilities. I had such a ball making my demo and Abbe was able to draw out the best in me.

I finally ‘got it’ when I did Abbe Holmes’ voice over course. Using the techniques I learnt from Abbe, I am now getting work which is a dream come true for me. The feedback I’ve been getting is great and I’m feeling more and more confident and proud of my work. I would highly recommend Abbe to anyone who is serious about getting into voice over.

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.

Voice Over Artist

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. She is great at communicating what’s required and tailors the training to meet each individual’s needs.

A sound investment. Two thumbs up!

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.
