Making A Voice Over Demo

In voice over, you get work from your demo. That’s why it has to be so perfect. If your demo isn’t up to standard, it’ll just get tossed in the bin. Here are some tips to make sure you create one that will get you work.

The Business of Being A Voiceover Artist

Being a successful voiceover artist isn’t just down to being a great voice performer with a top class voiceover demo. One of the most important factors governing your success is how well you understand the business of voiceover. So here are three simple ways of making sure you’re ready to do business.

Being A Voiceover Artist – The Act

You don’t have to be a trained actor…but you still need to perform!

Many voiceover artists are not trained actors and many have never performed at all. There is absolutely no need to be professionally trained. Voiceover relies more on a set of natural abilities that are well informed, than intensive performance training.

Marketing Yourself as a Voiceover Artist

If the thought of ‘marketing’ your voice over talents causes you to break into a sweat, relax. Help is at had! But the truth is, voice over marketing isn’t really that hard. You just need a good demo, a list of local studios and a really good understanding of what you do best.

Techniques for Voiceover Success

It’s true that being a great ‘sight reader’ is one of the most important skills a voiceover artist can have, but how many of you, when faced with something you’ve never read before, struggle to have it make sense on the first reading? Read on for some simple techniques that’ll help you perfect your sight reads.

Your new Voice Demo's out…but no one’s calling!

Is this you? You’ve sent your demo to everyone you can think of, studios, radio stations and producers…and you’ve had little or no response. What now!

Good Ads, Bad Ads

As a voice artist, you will have been faced with your share of both. Understanding the process the script goes through before you see it will help you turn a bad ad into a good ad and a good ad into a great ad.

What are valued clients saying about us


Jessica Clarke

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.


Justine Puy

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. She has an incredible ability and sensitivity when it comes to helping create the perfect atmosphere for your reads. If you are looking for some coaching then look no further ‘cos Abbe is the lady you have been looking for.

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.


Kyle Kidd

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.


Rosie Traynor

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!


Cameron Bate

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.
