The Master Class is in three parts:
The course is held in Waltham on the Wolds. You will learn the seven elements of the Hudson Voice Technique, including microphone technique and voice production. You will be recorded before you start and at the end of the day so you can hear the progress you have made. You will take home this CD as a guideline for when you are practising.
By the time you leave here, you will be able to read with this professional technique. This is guaranteed. We will give you access to the online video course to help you when you practise.
You have to practise scripts that you will be given for three weeks, fifteen minutes a day because the technique has to become second nature.
Your assessment. This can be done here or on the phone or SKYPE. I will listen to you reading some scripts and if there is something that needs a little more attention, I will simply ask you to practise for another few days and call me again - there is no time limit to the course or the advice we give.
I will give you all the information you need to get started in the voiceover business and advise you on recording a demo CD; but there are some pitfalls which I will explain.
When you have finished the course, I will send your Voice Master Diploma.
The Hudson Voice Technique carries a lifetime guarantee which means I will always be available for advice in the future.
What is the Hudson Voice Technique?
The world's only qualification for voiceovers.
It is a life skill and guaranteed.
It is a powerful structured technique that has a permanent affect, so there is no doubt that the Hudson Voice Technique is the most important skill for voiceover artists.
The Hudson Voice Technique has been taught for over 15 years, training Fortune 500 CEO's, BBC newscasters, call centre operators and many corporations including ING Bank, British Telecom, Carlsberg Tetley, and of course, those who want to earn extra money as a voiceover artist.
There is no doubt that learning how to speak professionally will make a significant difference to your success as a voice over artist.
A piano can be played by instinct, but if you want to be a concert pianist, you will need to learn a technique. In a similar way, your voice is an instrument, so by learning a technique, you will have full control over your voice just like other leading voiceovers.
It's also fun when your friends hear you on the television or radio!
It has been accredited by the Law Society for 16 hours CPD training and we are official trainers at Oxford University, the Singapore Media Academy and Bloomberg UTV.
Voice Master International has licensed partners in the Singapore, Malaysia and India. You will find more details about our partners on our website.
Secrets of the Black Magic Box Man (Reprint from TV Times)
Steve Hudson started as a trainer with 3M Company and Xerox (London and Washington DC) as International Communications Trainer. Working in Washington, he trained politicians and became Communication Consultant for members of the Senate and many of the Fortune 500 companies.
He soon realised that most salesmen and politicians were well trained in product knowledge, but many of them were poor communicators. It was obvious they needed a technique to be more positive and persuasive. After considerable research in America and the UK, he was surprised and disappointed to discover that no such technique existed.
Working in Washington DC, he was lucky enough to meet Frank Sinatra, who was one of the best communicators in the world. Just listen to the clarity of his voice and delivery when he sings.
When he mentioned to Mr. Sinatra he couldn't find a communication technique, he replied: "So create one."
As it turned out, it was a brilliant piece of advice!
When he returned to London, he decided to train at the National Theatre in London to learn the secrets of great actors.
During the next few years, he became a successful international voiceover, recording Fuji, Mitsubishi, Guinness, Gallo Wine, Old Spice, Martini, Superman and many others. He came close to real stardom when Cubby Broccoli was casting for the lead role in James Bond movies; Steve said he lost by an eyebrow (and a few million pounds) to Roger Moore.
Steve Hudson has won a number of awards for production and performance, including Best Radio commercial at the Hollywood Radio and Television Society for 'Sound International'.
Steve has enjoyed working with and interviewing many stars and celebrities, including the multi-talented Miriam Margolyes, Barry Ingham, Frank Sinatra, Roger Moore, the Duke and Duchess of Bedford, Lord Lichfield, David Bailey, Hulk Hogan, Pele and Tracey Ullman.
We are not an agent, but we will recommend two of the best online agents, and of course advice about recording your demo CD.
The Hudson Voice Technique has been taught for over 15 years to BBC presenters, voiceovers, actors, company staff and people speaking a second language. It has been accredited by the Law Society for CPD training.
Does this course really work?
Yes it does - and it's fun as well.
'I was a producer and presenter at the BBC World Service for ten years and what I know now (and practice) would have saved a lot of production time and made programmes more effective. During the course of that decade I must have produced thousands of programmes and presented many hundreds. A lot of them lacked one essential ingredient, which is supposed to be the lifeblood of every broadcaster – listenability.
The BBC training wasn't a patch on the Hudson Voice Technique.
I learned more about reading and broadcasting with you Steve, than I did in ten years at the BBC. Only now can I count myself a professional broadcaster and voiceover.'
Hugo Fay. BBC World Service
'I would recommend the Hudson Voice Technique to anyone who wants to be a professional broadcaster or voiceover. Beginners will gain great insights and professional broadcasters will find it very useful too. This technique covers the essentials that give you the tools to put into practice.'
Suzanne Jung, Producer-Presenter, Primetime Morning
(Singapore, Hong Kong,Seoul,Tokyo), Channel News Asia
'Dear Steve, Thanks a zillion for the training and diploma. I've really enjoyed the workshop and look forward to seeing you again soon.I've indeed benefitted a great deal from your course and personal coaching.'

'Dear Steve, I would like to truly thank you for that awesome full-day session. Such endearing yet simple techniques to polish and engage that script. Absolutely love it.'
Jeremy Lee – translator - Singapore
Thank you for a very enjoyable masterclass. I learned a lot and was pleased with the progress I achieved in the (relatively) short time I worked with you. With the practice you set me, I feel confident that I will continue to improve and to enjoy using my voice to greater effect in my work. I'm excited to have opened up more opportunity in the potential voiceover market eventually too and recommend your approach and technique. I'll be on touch when I have got some practice under my belt!
'I thought the course was a revelation and really showed the difference between aspiration and ability along with the need for understanding and good old-fashioned practice.
I was particularly impressed by the quality of your feedback and how you explained exactly what I was doing wrong and where I need to work. I am now re-thinking my aspirations towards supplementing my income with voice-over work.
I am enjoying the course so much!! It really is fantastic. I only wish that I could have accessed this information much earlier in my life. Thank you, so very much. I am sure that with the VoiceMaster technique under my belt, my chances of getting voice work in South Africa, will improve a million fold.
