The Voiceover Gurus
Why not learn from people with current working experience who are up on the latest trends in the VO Industry?
We offer coaching, guidance, advice, and feedback, but what makes us truly unique is that we are working voice professionals who have found success in this challenging but rewarding career. And we solely make our living from being voiceover talent.
As Gurus, we act as a Mentor for a one-time session or a series of sessions depending on your goals. We have a unique perspective and a particular set of skills. Kinda like Liam Neeson…but for Voiceovers.

We aren’t coaches who used to be Voice Actors.
We are working Voice Actors who also coach. Big Difference.

How much does it cost?
Unlike traditional voiceover classes & programs, where costs can be in the $1,000’s, you can receive private one-on-one sessions with successful working professionals at a fraction of the cost. During your sessions, you will receive highly personalized advice and education specific to your goals. And since it’s all about you, each lesson will be filled with valuable information that you can apply immediately. We offer a Beginners Voiceover Class spanning 4 weeks via Skype as well as an Intermediate Level 4 week class for those who have the basics under their belt. For those looking to just practice their skills and get feedback, individual lessons are also available.
We also have an “In Studio” Option: If you live in the New York area, Linda holds classes and private sessions in her studio on Long Island. Learn all the basics of the Voiceover business and hone your skills in either a group or private setting. Classes are held at various times each month and are posted on the booking page.
