"Thanks to Steve Harris' excellent coaching, I now have a professional narration reel."  Click Here to Hear a Demo

I am amazed by how well my voiceover skills have developed under Steve's coaching. From our very first session together Steve made me feel comfortable in front of the mike; thanks to him now, I am comfortable and confident starting out on my voiceover career. Once Steve was assured I had learned the techniques of delivering an excellent voiceover reading he had me read various types of copy to determine the vocal direction that most suited my voice. Not surprisingly I concurred with Steve's assessment. Thanks to Steve's coaching, I now have a professional sounding demo reel to send to agents and casting directors as I pursue professional narrative voiceover opportunities.

"After only a few months of working with Steve Harris, I'm now shopping for representation."  Click Here to Hear a Demo

I was really interested in Voice Over work, but had never done anything like this before and didn't know anything about it. I opted to meet with Steve Harris. He was so patient, professional and understanding that I signed up for sessions right away. I was learning so much, in such a short period of time thanks to Steve's organization, guidance, and his complete wealth of knowledge. He really knows what he's doing.

Not long after, I recorded my demo reel at his wonderful recording studio...Wow! My own parents and boyfriend all thought they were real commercials and couldn't believe it was me. I still can't believe how great I sound, all thanks to Steve Harris. It's amazing that after only a few months of working with him, I'm now shopping for representation. Steve is an incredible voice-over instructor and demo reel producer and in all likelihood, the best there is.

"I booked over a dozen jobs within three months!"  Click Here to Hear a Demo

I consider myself to be a pretty smart guy, yet I still cannot figure out how Steve Harris does what he does. With professional broadcasting and theatrical experience. I was simply stunned at what I didn't know. It simply showed up in my results. Steve has what could only be referred to as a "stealth" approach. He doesn't tell you how to do it - he brings out the best of what you have. He tells the truth, so don't expect to be told how wonderful you are - until you are! I trusted Steve's abilities to the extent that I decided to fly into NYC from California, just to have him cut my demo. In fact, I couldn't have imagined anyone else doing it. Needless to say, it turned out beautifully. I booked over a dozen jobs within three months. Steve Harris is completely dedicated to the success of his students.

"Steve Harris' training really works"  Click Here to Hear a Demo

I came to Steve Harris, as a theatre actor looking to learn about different facets of my voice and to break into voice-over. Having had a lot of vocal training, I knew how to make my voice sound "good", but Steve helped me find and hone MY voice. I think voice-over training is invaluable to any actor, whether or not you actually end up pursuing voice-over professionally. By isolating and working with my voice regularly in recordings, I learned that there was no special "good" voice I needed to use, in order to compete in the marketplace. My voice had to be real, unique and one hundred percent my own. It's helped my acting as well, by giving me the courage to bring my "real voice" to my stage work. By the way, my agents really loved the demo reel I made with Steve Harris, and began representing me for voice-over right away. My first audition went so smoothly and stress-free, thanks to all the thorough training I had working with Steve Harris.

"Within two months, I signed with a manager and have been auditioning and booking ever since."

As a classically trained actor, I worked primarily on regional stages. However, I wanted to make the leap into the lucrative voice-over market. I called Steve Harris, because I heard good things from other colleagues. As soon as I heard his voice, I thought, "Hey, it's that guy! That guy whose voice is everywhere!"

Steve Harris spoke to me, frankly and professionally. He explained his technique in detail and immediately put me at ease. I set up a time for our first session. When it was time to make my voice-over demo, I walked into the studio which was appointed with all the latest technology. Even though I was nervous, Steve Harris put me at ease and soon we were laying down great tracks. We made a voice-over demo reel which I was confident enough to send out to any industry professional. Within weeks, I was meeting with top agents at Don Buchwald, and other talent agencies. Subsequently within two months, I signed with a manager and have been auditioning and booking ever since.

Thank you, Steve Harris.

"I booked and recorded my first national spot for Kayak.com!"  Click Here to Hear a Demo

Dear Steve,

After your training and producing my amazing voice-over demo reel, I landed a New York City voice-over agent. Soon after, I booked & recorded my first national commercial for Kayak.com. You cannot begin to know how thrilled I am! Thanks again for helping me do this. Without your training and demo production, I wouldn't have been able to land this national spot.

With love,
Samia Mounts

"Over the phone training with Steve Harris really works!"

Steve came highly recommended by a producer in New York, but I live in Toronto, Canada. It was prohibitively expensive for me to fly in to New York City to take lessons from Steve Harris in person. With the Over the phone training, I got exactly what I wanted. I received professional training from a well-recognized talent in New York City without having to leave the comfort of my home.

Before training with Steve Harris, I had a good news broadcaster voice, but the industry was looking for more. Steve Harris helped me smooth out and expand the range of my voice. Within two months, I was booking spokesperson jobs in television commercials.

Even on the phone, I could tell that Steve Harris really cared. I received excellent instruction from him and I also learned more about the voice over industry. With Steve Harris' help, I am now better prepared to make a long-term career in voice-over work, and my geographic location did not limit me, from receiving the professional coaching I wanted.

"Since working with Steve Harris, I booked a four commercial voice-over job, plus a web video!"   Click Here to Hear a Demo

My voice-over demo reel sounds so professional, even closest friends didn't realize it was me, doing the different voices. Cool. The skills and advice that Steve Harris gave me during my voice-over training sessions, help so much when I go out for auditions and cold readings, whether for a voice-over or on-camera commercial, film, television or a theatrical role.

Being only sixteen, my parents and I, figured that this was the time to build up my resume with voice-over and copy reading training. Since working with Steve Harris, I booked a four commercial job, and also landed a web video. The producer for the web video said that he hired me after hearing my voice-over demo reel which he thought sounded both stylish and confident.

I really loved working with Steve Harris. Training with him, was a very intelligent way to build my career. Thanks for everything Steve Harris. Your learning process was greatly fun, and I learned so much from you.

"Your voice-over training taught me diverse vocal abilities."

Thank you so much for the excellent training, as well as the time and tremendous patience you have given to me. When I first started taking your voice-over training, you may recall that I had little control over my tone and pacing. I always read way too fast, often with uncontrollable stuttering and nervous tension. You helped me conquer these demons by building my confidence and teaching me how to take control of the microphone.

Your voice-over training had great variety in script options, and taught me to recognize the diverse vocal abilities necessary. From serious voice-over scripts dealing with financial or medical issues, to humorous scripts for soft drinks and laundry detergents, I feel that your excellent instruction helped prepare me for whatever surprises this new career might hold.

In the beginning, it all seemed so far out of reach, but now I finally have my voice-over demo reel and I am ready to take on the world. Life is a constant journey and there is always something new to learn, but I know I can go out there now, with skill, confidence and determination. I simply could not have accomplished this without your expert guidance.

Thank you Steve Harris!

"From my first meeting with Steve Harris, I knew he would help get my voice to exactly where it needed to be"   Click Here to Hear a Demo

People had always told me I had a great voice, but I never thought I could do anything with it. I went to Steve Harris, to try my hand at voice-over work and to see if it might be possible for me.

Steve Harris taught me how to figure out the overall "tone" of the ad I was reading for, as well as all the nuances that I never would have figured out on my own. He helped me put together a voice-over demo reel that I can truly be proud of, complete with marketing and business advice.

Thanks to Steve Harris, I had interest from an agent after only a first mailing! She said she couldn't believe how good my demo souned. But from my first meeting with Steve Harris, I knew he would help me get my voice to exactly where it needed to be to get that response. I could not have had more fun in the process.

Sincerely,
Rachel Haynes

"I've never had an instructor on any subject who goes the extra mile the way Steve Harris does."

I signed up for Steve Harris' voice-over training program, with no acting experience of any kind and all my usual pessimism. Six months later, I was relaxed and confident enough to cut a first rate voice-over demo reel that booked me, two animation projects in New York City within a week.

I've never had an instructor on any subject who goes the extra mile the way Steve Harris does, and he's refreshingly honest and straightforward to boot.

Steve Harris is a wonderful teacher. He is honest, yet always encouraging. He has a great way of communicating with and critiquing his students, which is always truthful and never belittling. He is punctual and responsible, and inspires punctuality and responsibility.

Steve Harris is a true professional and will work with his students tirelessly, to get the best possible readings. It never ceases to amaze me, how he can pinpoint areas for improvement. Steve Harris really hears everything. After just three months I can already hear a big difference in my voice and my reading abilities.

I've just produced my first voice-over demo reel with Steve Harris, which I am really happy with. Working with Steve Harris has been a very positive experience, and I plan on continuing to work with him, for a long time.

"Steve Harris really took the time to explore the fundamentals with me."

Before I started my coaching work with Steve Harris, I had never done a voice-over in my life. Steve Harris really took the time to explore the fundamentals with me, providing an understanding of the terminology, how to cold-read copy, an overview of the business...really all of the tools that I needed to be able to compete and be successful. I would not trade the voice-over training time I've spent with Steve Harris for anything!
