Brent Halfyard has a very unique coaching system: 'The Halfyard Method' that works! Just go to our SUCCESS STORIES page to see students booking actual jobs based on direction and coaching with Brent.


Unlike most class settings, Brent works strictly one-on-one with each student, coaching and directing them as he records the performance in Halfyard Studios, professionally designed broadcast quality recording studio. He then plays back the audio to the student so they can adjust their performance accordingly. This gives them usable skills and knowledge of what producers and casting directors are hearing.

Brent has been working as a professional voice talent since 2000, and brings that expertise to each private coaching session. He has worked with top coaches in Vancouver, Toronto, New York and L.A. to help hone his craft as a performer and as a teacher. His intuitive methods first analyze the student's skill set and experience. He then creates a customized lesson plan for each actor. The goal: to provide every student with usable skills for the real world of professional voice over.
