Voice Masters: The Art of Voice

Voice Masters: The Art of Voice's goal is to teach, support, encourage and give groundbreaking training to actors in the art of Animation, Commercial, Audiobooks, Dubbing, Business for Voice Actors, Singing for Animation, Corporate Narration/E-Learning, Improv and just about anything a voice actor needs for success. Our founding members, Paulette Lifton and Mimi Maynard are award-winning working professionals as voice actors, casting directors and voice directors of animation series and theatrical feature films.

When we launched Voice Masters: The Art of Voice becaus we wanted to really change how actors are taught in this art form. We wanted our students to learn real life skills in the voice business. Some of the practical experience they receive are practicing sync to picture, learning efforts, honing idiosyncratic behavior, singing as a tool, being competitive without competing, create stand-out characters for their demo reel, understanding the audition process and setting up their own recording studio (no matter the budget). We pride ourselves in always have one-on-one coaching with each student on multiple characters and voices along with extensive weekly voice homework as well.

The Voice Masters community of actors has gone beyond our expectations! Life-long friendships, support teams, practice buddies and cheerleading support for fellow actors are the norm in our community. We do NOT believe in competition between our students. We believe that the only actors competition is themselves – to be the best they can be creating a safe space for everyone to win in their own way.
