What If...


What if there was a simple, step-by-step way to start a new career or money hobby as a voice over artist working from home in less time than you ever dreamed possible?

What if you had crystal-clear clarity, a proven blueprint and a roadmap to show you exactly what to do first, second, third to get started?

What if you had a caring and supportive team of coaches and experts to take you by the hand to show you exactly what to do?

There is!

Not too long ago, having a great voice over career was reserved for a small group of insiders and celebrities with access to the best auditions and jobs.

It was hard, if not impossible, to become a member of this exclusive club and you had to sound like Richard Burton or god to get in.

Women and people of color were mostly excluded and home studio equipment cost a fortune.

Today, all that’s changed.

The voice over business is booming with opportunities in over 14 niche markets. You can buy a great sounding microphone for a hundred bucks and set up a home studio for next to nothing.

But that’s created a whole new set of problems.

Voice talent shopping malls like Voices.com and Voice 123 have made it possible for almost anyone to call themselves a voice talent and get into the business. How do you stand out from the competition?

And while home studio equipment is now very affordable, the dizzying array of choices can leave you dazed and confused.

How do you find the best niche for your voice? Make a competitive demo? Direct yourself? Find agents and voice buyers? Set your rates?

How do you get started? Where do you begin?

Success Stories from Our Students


"The first thing I can say is that if you are remotely considering voice-over, look no further than The Great Voice Company. Much of my current job involves training employees in guest service. From the very first call, I was made to feel as if I were the only person who had considered attending their program. You would be amazed how rare this is! We were surrounded by people of all levels of experience who were incredibly supportive of each other's success. Above all the amazing things I can say, the level of coaching you will receive - from interpreting copy to all aspects of the business are like no other. The genuine caring by Susan and Adriana of us being the best we could be was felt by all. We worked hard, and had fun every step of the way.

Bottom line - don't take MY word for it… sign up before you miss out on this life changing opportunity!"
MICHELLE NODIFFFOREST HILLS, NY
"For me, 'life-changing' best describes your program. The in-studio practice, feedback from the coaches and peers, insider information we can implement immediately, plus the encouragement and the uplifting group energy were all valuable elements of the Experience. Susan Berkley shares her gifts and years of accumulated knowledge of the voice over industry with us beginners. My inner artist is now unleashed!"
HOLLY ARCHERITHACA, NY
"BOOKED A POLITICAL SPOT AND A MOVIE TRAILER"

"Good News! I just voiced a job for a political message that is now running state-wide in neighboring Minnesota. I have also voiced a 'real live' movie trailer for an independent film company!
RANDY DEANGREEN BAY, WI
"Thanks again for helping me out regarding my home studio questions. Also I wanted to let you know that Zach was very professional when he called me to ask about signing up for your program. I didn't feel pressured. I know this is what I really want to pursue and your classes will be a stepping stone to help me launch my career. Here's a shout out to you and The Great Voice Company. Thanks again, Susan!"
TIM PETERSONMCFARLAND, WI
"I called the office yesterday to share some news I was so excited I have booked my first commercial voice acting job!

I was booked through the recording studio where I did my demo. The company that hired me is a big nationwide PR firm out of Syracuse and I'm doing a video spot promoting one of their products.

I am on cloud nine! I truly wouldn't be on the threshold of a wonderful new career if it were not for the Great Voice Company and your support and encouragement Susan."
