During his career as a voiceover coach and demo producer, J. Michael Collins has mentored some of the industry’s fastest rising stars in VO. He has jump-started the careers of voiceover working pros struggling through a lull in bookings, and helped to change the lives of his coaching students by teaching them how to build their businesses beyond their expectations.
With a rare ear for nuance, and a prolific career as a top-booking talent, award-winning demo producer, and even casting for a number of his clients, J. Michael can break down and analyze your delivery with uncommon ease and expertise. More importantly, his proven performance-oriented coaching techniques will harness your strengths and help you rise above your weaknesses, learning how to give the right read the first time, every time.
J. Michael believes you learn performance by performing. Not by busywork.
Nothing defines quality quite like the personal touch. Coaching with J. Michael will never be a cookie-cutter experience. Each talent is different, and no two programs of study will be the same. Script selection and progress will be defined by the needs and goals of each student, with each session conducted via video conference for a virtual in-studio feel.

J. Michael’s efficient and targeted coaching packages are meant to provide you exactly the level of skill-building you need to reach your booking goals, without milking your credit card until it melts. There are no hidden fees, extra optional services to buy, or pushes to do “just one more session” to get there. Most students will take between 5-10 one hour lessons, with all costs defined upfront. Demo production, separate business consulting, and J. Michael’s signature Success in Online Casting course can be discussed before you start your package if appropriate.


While J. Michael generally does not offer discounts on coaching or demo production, payment plans extending up to six months are available on a good faith basis.


Due to J. Michael’s heavy booking schedule as a talent, he keeps no more than five students on the books at any one time.

If you are a working pro and would like to consider a coaching package, (or even just a brush-up session,) with J. Michael, please submit a handful of recent auditions to along with the reason for your interest in his services. You will receive a reply by the next business day in most cases.

J. Michael loves working with talented newcomers to the industry but requires new talent interested in coaching to sign up for a one-hour talent evaluation prior to being accepted for any full coaching program. This is necessary to discharge the ethical obligation of any coach to make sure the person they are taking money from has the genuine potential to see a return on their investment. If you are already actively auditioning, but have never had formal training, you are invited to submit up to ten recent auditions to in lieu of a talent evaluation, along with the reason for your interest in working with J. Michael. J. Michael reserves the right to refuse service to anyone he feels would not benefit from his training.
