Testimonials & Success Stories

Hi Karen,

I DID absolutely enjoy Danielle's class! It was informative and fun, and I am thrilled that she is so generously sharing all of her notes from the class with us.

Though a bit slow at getting around to this, I also want to say how much I enjoyed the last class taught by Noelle (and the other classes she taught, too!), as well as the one Randye taught the other week. Randye covered two topics that I had concerns about ~ deciphering and marking copy ~ brilliantly! And it came in very helpful when I had my private coaching session with David Guzzone last week!

Which brings me to David Guzzone's coaching ~ Fantastic! I truly appreciate how inventive and focused he is. He got me to realize all the different ways I can use my voice, even for the same copy. I'm amazed at all he made me aware of in just one hour! I'm looking forward to receiving a tape of the session.

And, I must mention just how much I enjoyed and learned from David Goldberg's class this past Friday. I will never look at copy, or listen to anyone speak, ever the same. It was incredible to listen to and learn about all the different little nuances. I do hope that David will consider doing more classes like that again in the future! It was a great group of people and, needless to say, David is an incredible teacher.

I think that's it for now! I hope you had a wonderful weekend, and I know I'll be in touch again soon!

Hello!
Just wanted to comment that the topic of working on articulation, breathing and all the exercises for warming up and staying limber was exactly what I've been looking for! Naz did a great job getting us to properly practice and put those exercises in our back pocket for when we need them. This being my 28th Webinar, and 8th Technique Spotlight was something I had been looking for since day 1 of my investigative class, and now I got it! Keep'em coming!

In addition, all the coaches I've had have been amazing and super helpful. Anne Ganguzza, Randye Kaye, Dan Friendman, Kristen Price, and Marjourie Kouns are all very awesome and I'm glad to have taken their classes up to this point in my training.

Thanks as always everyone!

Kevin

Just wanted you to know I’ve now had two coaching sessions after delaying for so many months and I wish that I had done this sooner! Both sessions have been valuable and very interesting and enjoyable. The first was with Danielle Quisenberry. She is such a good coach with many ideas and tips for improving my performances. Of course, I was not surprised, really, because I took the technique 101 class from her a few months ago and knew she was good. The second was with Michael Ingram and he is so encouraging and has so much experience that his session was also enjoyable and filled once again with great tips. I feel that I’m gaining great ideas on how to improve my performance.

I’m looking forward to the next session and am excited to get a demo produced so I can get going with this!

Thank you for your help!

Greetings Kendra! Just wanted to say thanks to everyone at Edge Studio for all the guidance, teaching and support I was shown as I continue forward in the world of Voice Over. I love the Demo and wanted to let you know that as I have started to forge some relationships with local studios in my area, I always go into length on the training and insight I have gotten thru the courses and people I have had a chance to learn from the last year at Edge.

In learning and reading about the Voice Over world and what it takes to make a difference, One thing I read stood out to me, Performance before Product. That's an area Edge excels in with the ability to audition on a weekly basis with the script contests along with the feedback forum, are amazing tools to have at your side.

As I gain experience ( and hopefully clients) :) the one thing I will always let them know is I wont be satisfied until they are and I have Edge to thank for instilling the confidence in myself and providing the continued training to make that happen.

Thanks again!!

Terry

Hey Kristen!

YAAAAAAAAYYY!!!!!! YOU GUYS ARE FREAKIN' AWESOME!!!!! YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, not phrases I usually use, but Soooo appropriate!!! : ) I love the music, the pacing, the difference in qualities. I am still laughing and smiling about some of the music choice! They are great!!! : D And, WOW! You guys make me sound good! Why, even professional, if I dare say! ; )

Well, once again, I cannot thank you enough! You, and everyone at Edge, are incredible! And I am really looking forward to using all the skills you've all taught me. I will be uploading the demo to your library, and this is the kick in the arse I needed to really get moving on my website!

Many, many, many thanks, Kristen!

Patty

David, Noelle and Staff,

I just wanted to say thanks for my Commercial VO Demo. I'm not sure if I'll get use to hearing my own voice on a recording, but it's pretty damn cool to hear it on an actually VO Demo. Special thanks to my coach Noelle who was awesome during this whole process thanks for the guidance. To all the ladies in education that I spoke with: Kendra, Susanne, and Hayley you ladies are so very sweet and helpful. Your customer service is outstanding. I also would like to thank the engineers for their work on my demo...Great Job Guys. David you have a great staff and a really cool program...thanks again. By all means feel free to keep me in mind for future projects :)

Jason S.

Thank you,David, for your excellent teaching, guidance,
coaching, patience, precise direction and dedication
working with me.

Recording the demo was a thrilling experience and that is
because your wise and brilliant methods guided me to
that day so beautifully. I couldn't have done it without
you.

Mary

Hey there! I just finished my demo after working with Danielle Quisenberry as a coach. I’d love to leave her a review, if possible. It’s included, below. Thank you!

My experience at Edge was wonderful. I really took my time working through the classes, because I was new to the VO world. They didn’t rush me and my training felt personal. My coach, Danielle Quisenberry was a perfect match for me. Because I approached VO from an acting background, Danielle was a natural fit. I felt that we spoke the same language and I could really understand what she was trying to get out of me. Her guidance was key to getting the results I did, and I’m very pleased with how my demo came out! I feel very prepared and excited to enter this industry and I have Edge and Danielle to thank!

Lauren

Thank you to all in the education department! I am loving the chance to follow my dream with direction and fabulous information! I have taken the orientation and a technique 101 class and feel like I have learned so much already! I know I still have a lot to learn, but wanted to give you some feedback and let you know how happy I am with the program thus far.

Melissa

I am soooo pleased with how it turned out. I can't say enough great things about Johnny Heller. He was so easy to work with, and really encouraging. With the excellent direction from Johnny and engineering from Kevin, I feel extremely confident in submitting this demo to any prospective client.

Thank you all, and I look forward to recording my next demo soon.

Josh

Noelle,

I got my finished demo last week and I love it! I wanted to thank you so much for everything you taught me. I started off with a stiff newscaster voice and after my sessions with you, I now have a much more laid-back, marketable voiceover range.

Thanks!

Caroline S

I very much want to express to you my since and heartfelt thanks for the time you spent and the great patience and care which you showed in coaching me for the demo recording last autumn and winter. Your lessons brought me to a much clearer understanding of professional voiceover technique that I have since striven hard to retain.

The process of recording the demo itself on January 18th was exactly as I hoped it would be – the experience was dead on, and I am very, very pleased with the final product. The folks at Edge Studio were just “the Tops” to work with. The best! Your personal guidance was the key element that made the process fall into place.

Michael

I have loved every class I have taken so far. I can’t even imagine trying to start working in voice over without all that I have learned. The coaches have all been so encouraging and insightful; while at the same time giving us realistic expectations. You have put together a fabulous team of experts! Thank you for giving us the tools we will need to be successful, professional voice over artists.

Melissa

This is so awesome! You guys did a great job! Thank you!! Can't wait to start using it!

Louahn

Oh, Kendra, I LOVE it! And, what might be even better, my husband loved it! (He’s my best critic and advisor). I downloaded it on the Production end as soon as I got it! Thank you so much for getting this to me. Please extend my thanks and gratitude to Danielle, Kevin and the Edge team. I truly appreciate their expertise and professionalism in helping me in my journey. And tell Carol I’ll be back for that Audiobook demo!
And, lastly, but certainly not least, thank you to YOU. From my first phone call with you until now you have been informative, helpful and supportive. You were a big part of the process and I thank you.
Very sincerely,

Susan

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I am very happy with the way my Demo came out. Now I know why Edge Studio is the best! I enjoyed working with Kristen to prepare for my demo and her knowledge and expertise definitely paid off. I will be sure to upload my demo in the Fresh Voices and Casting library.

Thank you to all the great folks at Edge Studios and especially to David for helping me "find my voice" that led to the production of my new demo.

Mark Smith

To whom it may concern:

I just took Technique 101 and Don't Embarrass Yourself this week, and I have to say, I'm blown away by Danielle and David as teachers. Their specificity, humor, and grace in teaching through teleclass is admirable. David's numerous, topical stories add excellent context to the class, and Danielle's commitment to coach every student until they understand the exercise shows her passion for the craft.

Thanks for keeping such lovely company, Edge Studio.

Corey

Danielle,
I just wanted to thank you for coaching me, and for the fantastic direction on my voice over demo. It sounds great! I could never have done it without you.

The process was enjoyable & calming with you as my guide. I really learned a ton from you, in class and during the demo process. I look forward to working with you in the near future both in class and on future demos.

Thank you again, your talents, and amazing personality, are so greatly appreciated. Have a great day!

Stephanie

I can't tell you how awesome and professional these classes and instructors are! Very excited about the direction I seem to be heading in, thanks so much for this program!

Dave M

Dear Kendra,

Thank you so much for this! The results are outstanding and I can't wait to get it out there. Please thank Carol M., Kevin, and all the rest at Edge for their help and instruction. I look forward to posting my comments of my progress to the website once I get rolling.

Januel

I was in the NYC location on 10/23 and 10/24 and recorded my demo. Everything went really well, and it was a great experience... David Guzzone's coaching and direction opened my eyes to what this is truly all about; working with the folks at edge has been great and I am so glad that I made the decision to start my VO career there.

Mark

Hi Kristen,

Thank you for the the wonderful, professional, and creative experience!. You were fantastic and I thought, brought out the best of my talents. It is demonstrated by the quality, fun, and engaging elements of my demo. I cannot thank you enough as I am now gathering more supportive materials (biz card, website, What Now class) to continue my journey in voice-overs with confidence.

Keith

Lately several people have asked me about getting into voice-over and I always refer them to you guys.

Work has been good lately and all that relationship building and networking is paying off with more work. Last month was my best month ever. And Edge has had a large part to play in my success.

So I've said it many times before but I'll say it again. THANKS for all your doing!

All the best,

James

How are you? its been ages since I've chatted with you! Just to refresh your memory I took a voice over class with you in DC and made a demo through your studio! That demo has served me very well! Almost a decade later, I have been involved in over 40+ audiobooks, commercials for radio and tv, narration, educational, corp imaging, messaging on hold for businesses, website navigation, you NAME it! I want to thank you once again for the amazing experience in working with edge studio. Whenever I find someone interested in getting into voice acting I provide them with Edge Studio's information. Hopefully you have worked with some of them!

I am so happy Edge Studio is doing so well! If I don't speak to you before, have a WONDERFUL holiday and Happy New Year!

All the best,

Lauren Synger

David is about the best I've ever seen at picking out what details - sometimes seemingly inconsequential nuances - can make big impressions on your prospects, your clients, the target of your marketing programs and more.

I did a voiceover demo at Edge Studio with David Goldberg. My demo turned out great, David was honest about his evaluation of my abilities and his direction to improve my delivery was great. If you can deal with constructive criticism, it's the right place to learn. If you expect to hear what you'd like to hear, ie. how wonderful you are, even if you aren't, then go somewhere else. I took a couple of other classes at David's CT. studio and benefited greatly. They offer phone conference training sessions as well. Best Wishes,

Ted Morgan

I would also like to recommend David Goldberg of Edge Studio. I found him through another WIFV member's referral, and have been very happy with his work and company. He teaches a great class that's also very affordable and is extremely helpful in getting you to demo level (and getting it done - very important!). His phone number is 888.321.EDGE and although he's based out of CT and NY, he runs classes down here a number of times a year.
I have read over & printed out almost everything from your Web site....What a terrific and informative site you have!!!...and I am requesting a little direction from you as to where do I pick up from here now that my mind set is ripe to get serious, work hard and have some fun with Voice Over....and you guys are the best in the business, so I am going right to the top
Do you have a presence in Wash DC (coaching, recording studio, etc)? And which package do you think would be the most beneficial for me to sign up for next. I am smack in the middle of high tech.....selling video conferencing and solutions...and I am convinced that using the Technology for V/O is the way to go! Thanks for all your help in the past and I very much look forward to working with you in the near future.

If you are looking for a pretend expert who calls himself an expert because
he says he is. Don't choose Edge.

If you are looking for a charlatanto do your demo who will charge you double
the going rate to produce it then pick copy that is either dated or
in-appropriate for your age and style, don't go to Edge.

Choose Edge if you want to work, that's right, remember that four letter
word?It pays your rent, your phone bill, your cable bill, and medical.
I chose Edge. I did all the things I'm telling you not to do. I found me an
industry expert, paid double the price and didn't get half the involvement,
was given copy that suggested perhaps the guy never heard my vercitility or
listened to me tell him about my background in v-o.Then I went to buddies in
the industry, all big name coaches on both coasts and all of them agreed,
"it's not you" get that demo redone!

An then, I found David at Edge. He heard me when I said that although I knew
I'd have to spend money to earn money, I'd gotten a bad deal. David
suggested that since the demo was mine, I had a voice in how it would be put
together. (imagine that, my input was important even though the demo was
mine?) We updated the copy, compressing it, applying new sound effects,
cutting and patching - and now I have a demo I am proud to use as my
calling-card.

If we were friends in this economy and in this business, I'd say to you,
only go to edge for your demo production. Look for integrity, first!!

Thanks, David.

Edge Studio has been a great launch pad for my voiceover career, from the
very first introductory session right through to the marketing class. Look
forward to staying in touch.

David -

I appreciate the amount of time you took to meet with me earlier today. Look forward to meeting Joan this upcoming Thursday and learning more about this interesting craft.

All the best...R

Best Regards,

Robert

I am happy to write this note David, to let you know what a positive experience working with you and your company has been.
I was concerned before that first seminar started at the Governors House Hotel that I would be sold a package which might not have anything to do with whether I had what it takes to make it as a voice over artist. Boy, was I dissuaded of that notion quickly - it was clear that your skilled observations and assessment were honest. I would know by the end of that session whether I "had it" and work from there, or whether I should "bag it."
You made it clear from the start that I had to work hard to correct my chronic, if not terminal, overacting. Your patience and calm corrections while I repeated phrases endlessly is amazing. Over and over and over and then.... sometimes.....always if I work for it.......I got it! I can actually hear myself do it differently! Clearly, you understand what it takes to make a word sing.
The coaching sessions, which I listen to often, have helped me in other areas as well. I fancy myself an actor. During an audition last month I could hear you admonish my hammy side to cool it. It worked! I got the part I wanted and now I know how to bring a new subtlety to my roles.

I could go on. I think I will. I think the Industry GuideBook is of great value to the field. I hope you have gotten a lot of recognition for its contribution. I have used many acting texts find them unwieldy. The Guide is full of great tips, that are right there.

The practical information about what it is like "out there" has lessened the fear and smoothed the way. While studying it, and I do STUDY it. It's easy to think "Boy, this guy really knows what he's talking about." All of a sudden its not such a mysterious, unreachable realm. I sincerely think you have created an invaluable, well researched and RIGHT TO THE POINT service. Thanks David!
