Testimonials & Success Stories


I attended your IVO class with Noelle on Thursday 7/17/2014 at 7pm. I enjoyed the class very much. I was not sure what to expect going into it, and was pleasantly surprised.

Here is what I enjoyed about the class:
1. We were able to participate in a group session which allowed for us to hear and learn from each other.
2. There were times that each person read different pieces, and not just the same material. I felt that it allowed me the opportunity to take a chance and not be influenced by others.
3. The length of time was appropriate.
4. The feedback seemed to be honest. I genuinely appreciated that my 'weaknesses' were pointed out. I did not feel like at any point during or after the class that I was just being fed a line so I would sign up for more training.

A big THANK YOU to Noelle and the entire team that puts the course together - I look forward to "seeing" you in training!!


The webinar was so informative and well done keeping all the participants engaged. The 4 hours just flew by. Danielle was a great teacher and explained everything in terms that were understandable even for those who are very new to the process of discovering the voice over industry.

Loved everything about the webinar and am looking forward to continuing my education with Edge.

Hi Randye
Thank you for very professional and enjoyable introduction to VO and evaluation – you’re right on!!! I will be away this next week and on return will schedule Technique 101 and then schedule a private evaluation session, as you suggest.


I recently participated in a training webinar with Edge Studio. It was an absolute joy and ease. noelle romano did a phenomenal job too. I will be considering some more time with Edge Studio as each day is a step closer to a dream.


I just wanted to say something about the class. I know it's a business and I know you're there to make money, but Noelle was so good that I wanted to mention it. She was warm, personable and professional with a very comfortable, informative presentation. But most importantly, the instructions she gave each of us was very clear and easily understood. After the class a few of us chatted and we felt that we all really got her direction and heard the others successfully apply it in their subsequent readings. Now we're ready for the big time… JK JK (I learned that from my kids, they would be so embarrassed)! Me, I have a lot of work ahead, but it will be fun and if I at least make back the school tuition I'll be happy…


I just wanted to say “thanks'” for the IVO class. It was very helpful and encouraging, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Danielle was very methodical in her approach and well-organized, and she was good to meet each of us where we are in this journey.
I am in the process of deciding whether to go forward at this time, although I suspect I will.
Thanks again, and many blessings to you.


Dear Edge Studio Training Team,

I just wanted you to know what a great time I had in the web-based Investigate VO class with Noelle Romano on March 17th.

As a full-time trainer/educator for the past 20+ years, I've literally taught thousands of people from all around the world and I've evaluated hundreds of trainers and coaches. And, let me tell you, Noelle has a gift!

Not only is she a talented voice actor, but she is an incredibly patient and supportive coach. She encouraged us to take risks, made it safe for us to do so, and gave us just the right amount of feedback to help us progress with each read.

And, the structure of the IVO program was just perfect too! Not too long. Not too short. Just the right amount of information we needed to know to give us a healthy dose of reality, but even more inspiration to keep going. I honestly can't think of anything I'd tweak or change. It worked brilliantly for me.

This is my first experience with Edge and I am beyond impressed so far. I look forward to jumping into the ABC program ASAP and continuing my training with Edge.

My thanks to you (and Noelle) for all your support so far.

With much gratitude and best wishes,

John K

Hi Noelle,

Thank you very much for your time! I really enjoyed the class, and appreciate your evaluation.



I enjoyed the class, the instructor, and the format. There was a fair mix of "what's this all about" and "let's roll up our sleeves and try this." Noelle Romano was engaging and positive, working to build a positive rapport with all of us quickly. From a format point of view, she wisely told us what we were going to do and how we were going to do it and then made it happen.

Useful feedback was received in under a day with Kendra making contact the next morning. What impresses me most about Edge is that people are not pushy. There is tons of info on the website and there is a clear plan for furthering my voice over education. I look forward to the next chapter in this journey.



Great class, great constructive criticism, and great time!!


Dear Bill:

We met a couple of Saturdays ago when I took your Introduction to Voice Over workshop for Edge Studios in Springfield. I wanted to reach out and thank you again for a highly informative, accessible, and even entertaining session. Your written comments were also helpful and encouraging. As I relayed to Kendra in the Education Department during our discussion about going forward with the Edge program, your professionalism and obvious talent and passion for what you do was essential in convincing me that giving Edge my money would be a wise investment for the future.

I don’t know where this all might take me in the voice over field but I do hope our paths may cross down the road.

John C.

I just want to thank you for taking time out of a very busy day for you to teach the class on Saturday. I enjoyed my time there and learned a lot.
The main thing I took away from the class is to do it right. I plan on taking the rest of the year to save money, learn about the business and learn how to run a small business. I look forward to taking the classes in 2014 and begin my pursuit as a voice talent.


Thanks a lot for coming back with the evaluation notes so quickly!

I look forward to continuing with my training.

Thanks for all the great insight delivered today.


I thoroughly enjoyed the class yesterday and am planning to continue training with Edge – I thought Noelle was excellent.

Thank you so much for offering the Investigate class. As I explained to Noelle, people have said that I have a great speaking voice but I never believed they were being truthful. But having a professional from both sides of the microphone take the time to walk us thru some basic exercises and give their opinion was just wonderful. I had the absolute best time listening to the different attendees give their reads and hear Noelle offer wonderful coaching techniques. Noelle answered so many questions I had about the industry and training. All night long I kept hoping and praying that my voice was good enough to train with Edge Studio and one day work as a real VO talent.

I would recommend Edge to anyone!


I attended the 4 hour introductory workshop at Edge Studio last week and was very impressed with the facility as well as with the young woman who ran the workshop. She was extremely knowledgeable of the voice over business and made the 8 of us feel very welcomed and comfortable. I especially like the fact that we were given time in the recording booth and given critical analysis of our voice over potential. As a result, I signed up for the full training and look forward to the classes.

Here's my feedback.

- The class-size was perfect.
- All the interaction was driven through the instructor. Although would be nice to chat with my classmates that would've taken time away from the task at hand.
-Verbal feedback from classmates was muted. It would've been nice to tell a classmate "hey good job" or something along those lines but the only feedback that mattered came from the instructor, so it was just right.
- Instructor did a fantastic job of assigning scripts based on voice type.
- the resulting evaluation was spot on.


Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the webinar on April 10th. Noel did a amazing job of making the class fun and informative.
We dealt with a few technical glitches from time to time but nothing that took away from the class overall. A few nerves were evident which is I'm sure is common among those of us new to this, and again Noel did a wonderful job of keeping us confident and making it a relaxing environment as she coached us on our reads.

There was plenty of time at the end of the class for questions, and each one of us was given ample opportunity to ask away on any thing we had on our minds.

I honestly can't think of anything that needs to be changed or tweaked, and I would suggest to anyone who exploring getting into the voice over profession that this class is the one of the most important first steps they could take.


I thought the v/o info class was very informative, fun, and ran smoothly. Noelle was very patient with all . Keep things the way they are!!


The class was terrific. Noelle was not only professional and informative, but also very warm and funny. She eased us into the process of reading scripts aloud in a stepwise fashion that helped settle my nerves (mostly!).


In case I missed sending it, this is to let you know I really enjoyed the Investigate Voice Over Webinar with Noelle. She did a fantastic job! Great coaching skills and super easy voice to listen to...which if you are listening for 3 hours that is super important to me.
Best of all - she gave honest feedback, which is really refreshing.

I'm looking forward to being part of the Edge Training Program and participating in other speciality webinars. Susanne Pinedo is also doing a great job as my education advisor. So far, so good.

Theresa D.

The session was fun and the time spent with Noelle brought out talents and weaknesses that I was and wasn't aware of. Now comes the time of making the decision of whether or not this 77 year old has enough "fire in the belly" to pursue this. Thanks.

Hi Joey,

I just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU! I so enjoyed taking your workshop and getting coached by you on Saturday. It was a privilege studying with you. You really encouraged each and everyone of us and helped to bring out the best in us. Now that's a sign of a great coach/teacher!!!!

I have read through your notes for me and they were so encouraging! I am very excited to move forward and make this into at least a part-time career. I hope I can follow in your foot steps and turn this into full-time eventually.

I had a nice talk with Kendra this morning, and now I am just trying to sort out which plan will work best for me at this time.

Once again, thank you,


Hi Kendra,
I just wanted to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed the class today. David was a great educator, fun and easy to work with. Please know that regardless of whatever the outcome is for me, I gained a ton of knowledge about the voice over industry.
I will highly recommend Edge Studio for anyone with an interest in voice over.
I am hopeful for a green light from David and ready to sign on with Edge if accepted.


Hi Randye! Thank you so much for the coaching and eval you gave me! I learned so much about technique as well as my own voice in such a short amount of time with you. It was invaluable! I am signed up for the into class at edge studio for tomorrow evening and am really looking forward to it!

The Edge Studio evaluation class was very informative, fun, and very useful.
It was very professional ,very helpful , and very fair I would recommend this for other actors seeking advice for their approach to the voice-over world thank you

Hi Kendra, I just wanted to say that I really had a blast during the Investigate Voice Over class! The four hours passed by so quickly and I couldn't get the smile off my face. Noelle is a wonderful coach with great energy, guidance, and encouragement. Although I am half way across the world she made me feel like I was sitting right next to her. Please let her know that I thoroughly enjoyed her class. Have a great day! George


Hi Randye,

I am writing you to Thank You for yesterday's class. It was very informative, interesting & fun! I really enjoyed it and learned a lot, too!

Gail M.

the class was wonderful, the instruction was fun, positive critiques of reads, and most important, she was realistic with everyone in what to expect, where we might need to improve, what steps to take to improve.

very positive class, will be beginning the ABC classes.


Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Investigate Voiceover class
with Scott Harlan on March 16 in DC. Anyone who can make four hours pass
so quickly is doing things right. Scott was engaging, kept us laughing,
and made me feel comfortable right away. He gave us lots of information
and great feedback. Frankly I never expected it to be so much fun. I had
zero experience going in--just curiosity--but now I know I can do this
if I choose to. Thank you Scott!
