You'll not only define your primary niche, but you will also design marketing materials and strategies for telephone, Internet, email, social media and other forms of marketing.
You'll work on developing or honing your visual "look and feel" to establish your brand in the voiceover marketplace, including your website and print materials.
You'll create your mission statement, your positioning statement, your USP, your "slogan" and more... plus you'll learn how to use these tools to build name recognition for your VO work.
To be successful in voiceover, you need both performing and business skills. The VoiceActing Academy Mastering the Business of Voiceover workshop focuses on the business of voiceover and is designed to get you thinking about your voiceover work in a completely new way. Whether you are just getting started, or you are an experienced pro, you will work, and work HARD to develop your voiceover business skills!
We’re VERY serious about helping you to be more successful!
We are completely confident that what you will learn in the VoiceActing Academy Masters Class will completely change the way you run your voiceover business - for the better! We are so serious about helping you to succeed that we’re going to make it as easy as possible for you to take advantage of this event by offering you something that no other voiceover workshop has ever offered...
I wish I’d taken this course 3 years ago! It gave me so much more clarity in what I offer, how I can help my clients, and who I should target. I so loved the opportunity to brainstorm everyone’s mission statements, business names and tag lines!
Marion McFall, Edmonton, AL Canada
This was an unbelievable value! There was a tremendous amount of information to absorb, but Jim and Penny made it very easy. Both were outstanding instructors and worked well together. The program was very flexible and ALL questions were answered and were done so without scrimping on time or rushing us. I would recommend VoiceActing Academy without reservation!!!
Rick Wagoner, Fremont, CA
I used to play with the nuts & bolts. Now I know how to put them together and build something! Thank you so much for a class like this and for the way you present the material.

The VoiceActing Academy Masters Class
is a comprehensive 3-Day VO workshop
taught by James Alburger and Penny Abshire . . .
and it's not for the faint of heart!
If you are serious about your voiceover career, this 3-Day Masters Class is designed for you! In order to provide the best, most productive experience for each participant, we limit attendance to a maximum of 20 participants.
Imagine how your voiceover skills and business knowledge will improve with 3 days of immersion coaching and business development.
This 3-Day Masters Class is designed to take your voiceover business skills to the next level... whatever that may be for you. There is less lecture and more hands-on, focused, work with you, Jim and Penny. You’ll get the workout of your life as you participate in mastermind and brainstorming sessions designed to develop or improve critical business skills. Everything about these three intensive days is designed to take your voiceover work to at least the next level... if not higher!
Beginners will be pushed to develop their VO business skills more rapidly and professionals will gain new insights and discover new opportunities to polish their business, and marketing skills.
This was one of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had as a voice actor! I work in Spanish, but all the concepts can be applied to improve your work no matter in which language you perform.
Samuel Albis, Los Angeles, CA - Spanish language voice talent
Watching you both work with each different person and give direction and coaching was my favorite part! There are so many things I’ll eventually do and this covered LOTS of it. Penny and James are fantastic instructors. I enjoyed their natural style and their flow complimented each other’s information. Very easy to listen to and learn from! This was a real bargain! I don’t know how you keep it this affordable - but I’m glad you do!
Sonnie Brown - Professional voice actor, San Luis Obispo, CA
This event is all about your business!
You’ll be working on your business for THREE VERY FULL DAYS! You’ll discover things about what you need to do to make your voiceover business successful that you won’t get anywhere else!
Here’s just some of what you'll get in this jam-packed 3-Day Voiceover Masters Class:
We want you to succeed!
Believe it or not... there are actually some VO coaches who really don’t want you to succeed. Some of them are just out for your money and others will actually sabotage you or kill your dream by being “brutally honest.” What that often really means is that they will only give you one, very narrow, perspective on what it takes to succeed in voiceover - often from only the point of view of the market they work in, which may have no relevance to what you want to do. They may not take the time to allow you to discover your niche or explore your abilities, and they’ll often base their judgment of your “talent” solely on what they hear from your performance of a single script. Or worse... they'll give you enough encouraging coaching during a workshop to keep you interested, and at the end, they'll upsell you to a demo production session long before you are ready to take that step.
At the VoiceActing Academy 3-Day Masters Class you’ll focus on finding your niche. You’ll work with your peers to hone your business skills. And you’ll get coaching and direction from both James Alburger and Penny Abshire.
You'll leave exhausted - but you'll also leave with dozens of new skills to make your VO career SOAR! Our goal is that, by the end of these three days, you will have a laser-sharp focus on what you need to do to build your voiceover business and create lasting relationships with your clients. You will know where you fit in the world of voiceover.
Personalized follow-up coaching
With most voiceover workshops, once you leave... you’re on your own! Not so with the VoiceActing Academy 3-Day Masters Class!
A little over a week after the VoiceActing Academy 3-Day Intensive, you’ll participate in a special follow-up video conference to get your questions answered and help you stay on track to develop your voiceover performing and business skills. Plus, you can schedule a private 60-minute consultation with Jim and Penny any time during the 90 days following this event.
The focus is on the busniess of voiceover...
...but everything you learn
will also apply to your performance.
This experience has been both grueling and exhilarating. The characters I didn’t even know were inside were brought out by the strong and positive coaching of James and Penny. I was given permission to act totally foolish, taking the chance of completely falling on my face, and having it be OK. In fact - it was the best performance ever! I would recommend The Art of Voice Acting 3-day Intensive workshop to anyone interested in voiceover. If you want to communicate better, be a stronger actor, or be introduced to all those interesting characters inside you, this workshop is definitely the way to go, and worth every “Penny” and every minute invested.
Daniel Wallace - Grants Pass, OR
You guys are awesome! I enjoyed the time spent on conducting the business of VO. I learned (again) about approaching copy and making choices. This was definitely worth the time! and money! You two run a tight show - not much time wasted!
Debra Cole - Professional voice actor, Pflugerville, TX
This was awesome! Just a great emphasis on acting, character development, etc. I feel this intensive workshop took me well beyond being a “reader” and into the realm of being a true voice actor!
Jason Clark - Henderson, NV
I got MORE than my money’s worth from this workshop! The course is precisely the “jump-start” needed for me to begin a new career after my retirement from the Navy. It also gave me what I needed to shed the stern attitude that came from many years working as a Navy SEAL and in the military intelligence community. On a scale of 1 to 10 - I give this workshop a 15!
Dave Sigmon - Atlanta, GA
This visit to San Diego has been a most enjoyable experience. You were right! My head hurts from knowledge stuffing! So many aspects of this industry have been thrust upon us; the exposure has been a tremendous enlightenment. What a shot in the arm! The networking is also very valuable, and the camaraderie is a welcome side effect.
Jay Elzweig - Northport, NY
What an amazing and inspiring 3 days! While the days were long, there was never a dull moment. The spirit and camaraderie of the group was the most valuable. Next was the coaching and direction from James and Penny. They were very supportive and encouraging. I have taken a number of VO classes and this one was by far the best!
Rich Owen - Voice Actor, Bakersfield, CA
The VoiceActing Academy(TM) Masters Class
is produced by VoiceActing, LLC
The people who bring you the VOICE convention.
Two of America's Top Coaches!
Imagine a skill-building, intensive weekend where you'll learn the techniques and secrets of voiceover performance that are used by highly paid professional voice actors! In just three days, you'll learn dozens of performing techniques and "tricks-of-the-trade" you won't find anywhere else! Most acting schools and the vast majority of voiceover workshops don't cover the kind of performing skills and business development that you'll learn in the VoiceActing Academy 3-Day Masters Class.
THREE AMAZING DAYS!
You get 3 days of intensive business coaching.
(Yes! we really do work until about 10pm on Friday & Saturday!)
If you’ve attended other voiceover or training workshops, you know that some other coaches will charge more than a thousand dollars for just one day - and most of those workshops don’t get into the nuts and bolts of the voiceover business!
Well... we’re not them!
I am so blessed to have taken this course. James, Penny, and their staff were all warm and welcoming. I especially appreciated Jim and Penny’s willingness to share knowledge and information. I also thought that the skill with which Jim and Penny provide feedback and direction does much to promote the growth of participants’ ability to learn, grow, and be nurtured. Thanks for helping me to more fully understand and appreciate the art and business of voice acting. You all have made a friend for life!
Darrell Simmons - Stafford, TX
The levels of learning are indescribable at this point because there is so much, so many layers to be absorbed at the conscious and unconscious levels. The experience of being with other voice actors was fantastic, knowing others to keep in contact with and meeting James and Penny in person gave me a sense of validation: I’m not crazy for pursuing this, of course with hard work. The hands-on experience is invaluable. I had a good amount of book knowledge - read all the VO books, get all the newsletters - but how to apply it all - to see the application of the information was like a light bulb turning on and made me hungry for more! Penny and James connect the dots.
Ann Coyne - Scottsdale, AZ
