Testimonials & Success Stories

Hi David, and everyone at EDGE :
I wanted to express my gratitude for all the help I have received from all of you. From day one, you reassured me and instructed me what to do, and how to get there. My coaching sessions were just what I needed. I learned a great deal from them. NOW MY DEMO IS COMPLETE!! David, the way you applied your skills and experience throughout the production of my demo, especially the improv on the fly, was inspiration to me . You are a leader and an example in the production and voice-over field and I hope to work with you again soon. I would like to tell you that "words can not express" my gratitude. But in our line of work "words can not express" probably isn't a good phrase.
Thank you;

Tim Burnette

Don't need to be "out there" to be familiar with Edge Studio.? I live in Las Vegas, and have done several phone consults with the top guy: David Goldberg.? Worth every penny.

Hi Dave, (Hi Gina)
So far my demo has been very well received by my friends and colleagues.
I do have to say that my "demo day" was by far the best day ever as I start my journey into a voiceover career. The skill and patience with which my demo was produced was amazing. I really appreciated the time taken to involve me from a technical production standpoint. Not only that but it was just plain fun. The whole process from the workshop and evaluation, to speaking with Gina from time to time on the phone, to my voice coaching sessions with Judy, who, by the way, is a consummate pro and just a sweet person, to my demo production session with David, has been an incredible experience. I am looking forward to continuing a working relationship with Edge Studio hopefully far into the future.
As David said: "The demo is done... now, go out and make the world a better sounding place"
I plan to !!!
Thanks so much for everything,

Steve Smith

Let me repeat what a pleasure and fine learning experience it's been to have been tutored even so briefly by the sterling professionals at EDGE and if the opportunity arises, I will unreservedly recommend the "Voice Design Group" to others.
Thanks again and may the competition always succumb to the glistening "edge" of your most admirable enterprise.
Very cordially,

David

Thank you for everything David!!! Edge has been a great experience for me and continues to do so. Not sure how I ended up there...but its where I should have been in the first place.

I have never written a testimonial before, but I am compelled to do so, now,
because of my great experience with Edge Studio. I am a new voice over artist
based in New Orleans, so rather than fly to New York of D.C., I decided to do
telephone coaching sessions with Judy (whom I've never met in person). She was
spectacular. I improved rapidly. I highly recommend telephone coaching with
Edge to anyone. It works. I was so impressed with the professionalism I
encountered, that I decided to make the trip to New York to cut a demo with David. He
was amazing to work with. I am so proud of the demo we made. More
importantly, he taught me how to be a professional. I have already been hired for three
jobs (commercials). I am deeply grateful to all the folks at Edge.Studio

Hi David,

Thanks to you and the Edge Studio team (especially Eric, who is a great coach) for all the training, producing, and engineering work that went into my demo. I now have it loaded up on my website, www.mikeborruso.com, and I'm very happy with the way it sounds.

With my website and marketing materials complete (thanks to your excellent marketing foundation seminar and marketing forum), I'm now ready to get down to business!

I also enjoyed your VO from home seminar on Tuesday night. As always, you were very informative and to the point, and you answered all the questions that I came into the seminar with.

I plan to continue my training through Edge Studio. The team's professionalism is excellent, and I always learn something new.

I just wanted to express my gratitude for my session with you this afternoon - I've learned a lot and will start practicing tomorrow morning.

I cannot tell you how grateful I am for your feedback about both my voice and how I read (when I read correctly) - this has been really helpful in confirming to me that I am choosing a new career that is a good fit for me.

I'll call the studio this week to look into a session with Kristin and I'll carefully read the description for the Industry Know How class.

Thanks also for taking a few extra minutes to respond to the list of questions I sent you.

Have a terrific rest of your week!

You can take Edge Studio to the bank. Top notch. Great people, good practices, excellent results. You can practically get a college education in VO just by visiting their website, and reading all the "free" stuff they have.

David,
Thank you so much. I can't tell you how pleased I am with my demo & with Edge Studio in general. As a complete novice in the business of voiceovers I had no idea what to expect and I was skeptical & fearful to say the least. After working with you through the intensive workshop, private training, and finally producing my demo I now have an amazing demo that I'm psyched to market and it's all thanks to you. Your honesty and professionalism throughout has given me the confidence and experience that I need in order to begin a successful career in voice over work.
I look forward to working with you in the future.

John

I have to tell you the experience I've had thus far with Edge (on every level) has been worth every penny. I really appreciate the opportunities I've been given as a student and a talent.

Thanks for letting me use the projects. I am just about ready to add a "projects" section to my website. Hope to see you soon.

Best regards,

Suzanne

David:
I just wanted to take this time to thank you for the help I received at your studio in New York City. Roy, John, and Kristen where very helpful over the last 6 months in creating my commercial/narration demo CD. Everyone made me feel comfortable and confident. I'm very excited to send it out and start my voice-over career. I look forward to working with your studio throughout my career.
Thank you again,

Brian R. Winans

Hi David
It's been a crazy couple of weeks.. but I have been meaning to drop you a quick note letting you know just how much I enjoyed working with you. You are a fabulous teacher and an all around great person. It is such a bonus to love the finished product, my demo, and to enjoy the process that got me there. Anyway thanks again!
Respectfully,

Debra Joy aka Debra Katz

David,

I think you and Paul (the only two I've taken classes with) are fantastic - always specific, honest feedback with experience behind it that really helped me grow. I have no reason to doubt your entire staff is just as great. Kristin and Lara in the office are terrific as well - a wonderfully run and professional operation.

My expectations are always surpassed in anything I've ever done there. I am very happy with my demo and thought the demo session was great - you put me right at ease - very important - and I felt free to do my best. Great stuff!

Thanks for everything!

Gary

Hi David,
Bruce was just super on Wednesday when I taped my audition for the Christian Science Monitor.
Every class I've had through Edge has really help me develop the expertise I need to have the confidence in my skills to get out there and market myself. And it's going really well.

Thanks, David, for all your individual help and the help of everyone at Edge. You guys are the best.

David,

My name is John Blackburn. I came to NYC over the weekend from Washington, DC (Maryland). I had the most amazing experiences on this trip, and Edge was a HUGE part of that. I feel I am well on my way to finding "my voice"... Thank you so much for creating Edge Studio! Every one I have worked with (Sara, Lara, Rose) have all been so professional and helpful. I felt as the owner you should know what an amazing staff I think you have.

Thank you again for everything you and your staff have done. I hope we can meet the next time I am in New York.

Sincerely,

John Blackburn

A few years back, I signed up for your voice-over classes at Edge Studio. Your teachings and advice enabled me to land several jobs, and, being the voice for our businesses

Margaret Gloria, CT

To the Edge Studio staff:

I am a new student of the voice over industry. Recently, I found your site and signed up for your emagazine along with downloading your voiceover guidebook. I just want to thank you for taking the time to put together a clear and concise source for helping the new VO talent. This industry can be very daunting to the newcomer. I really value the information you are providing me.

Many thanks,

Stacey Medve

Hi, David,
I'm writing to complement you on the team and studio you put together.

it's always a pleasure to work with everyone on your staff - and with the coaches. ok, i also like the lollypops - and the cookies when the home baked ones appear....

i've worked with Tom, Judy, Roy and now with Paul. they're all great coaches, each one with a very different in approach.

i'm working with Paul at the moment and find that his approach makes me even more aware of the "science" of voice-over... what i can control, how to work the copy, "whom" to be.... We're working to develop my unique characteristics and a style that can create the edge - (ok, Edge...) i need to have the VO career i want.

i look forward to making the demos with Roy and Paul as soon as i'm ready. (yeah - it's all taking longer than i ever dreamed - but i want to be professional by the time i make the demos - not have you guys create a great demo - that i can't follow through on at an audition or on the job.)
thanks again for your work in making this all possible for me

David Goldberg has an uncanny ear. He can coach you to make adjustments and improvements in every line, every word of a script. David made me sound better than I ever expected I could." Dennis Deninger

Happy New Year! DD

Hi Lara,
Just wanted to say how good those tele-classes were on Saturday, so grateful I found out about them. It was really helpful to see how many different ways there really are to read the same script that are equally good. No one right way. It was also fascinating to hear Bruce evaluate us all (many people in the last class) one by one, and also insert helpful tips and anecdotes. Glad I was able to record it all. Guess it's a never-ending learning experience. And fun.

Thanks much for letting me know,

Hi David,
"Just wanted to say thanks! You and your Edge Studio staff made the
whole project--from voice coaching to studio demo session to the CD
duplication process well worth my time and investment.
David, you and Judy, are excellent, easy to follow, instructors.
Each voice session taught me how to use my voice as a marketable tool.
Now, with freshly honed skills and confidence, I've been able to develop
a very marketable style.
I even opted for an Edge Studio special engineering evaluation of my
in-house voice-over studio to glean recommendations that have put me
into a competitive edge. I'm able to record a broadcast quality CD and
ship overnight, or transmit real-time broadcast audio via ISDN to a
client anywhere in the world.
Please convey my thanks to Mike, Judy, Gina and Susan. It was great
working with pros!
I'm looking forward to booking with you again.

Hi, David,

Just a quick note to say I loved the class very much and will put to use everything you told us. I also want to say that I have enjoyed working with everyone I've met at EDGE and am so glad to have found a place that can help me move forward in vo work.
All the best to you and everyone at EDGE ...

Mostly through the luck of the internet and good intuition I was lead to the Edge Studio. Walking into the intensive workshop I was nervous... I never had a problem talking before, so what if I'm bad at it and I don't even realize it. Once David begins the class you know you are in for a fun, learning experience. His ease mixed with extensive knowledge made the 4 hours fly by and when it was finished you just wanted to run home and practice and get started. However, don't get me wrong... be prepared to take criticism folks... for without it, it's impossible to improve. My next step was making a demo. I was asked by someone to make one right away. So, pressure was on. Even though I warranted additional training, David solidly helped me through the process. Not only is he patient, but, his ear is so finely tuned in this art form he can hear everything! As my ear is not trained for this it's amazing and frustrating all in one. The whole time, while being critical David, never made you feel uncomfortable, he made you be the best you could be. In seconds he flipped through pages and found the right effects, and music for each piece. When it was all finished, you couldn't believe you just watched someone do all that in just 2 and half hours! Overall, thank you intuition for leading me to the Edge Studio. I am extremely happy with my product and will hopefully continue to train with them and it has given me a great deal of confidence.

My thanks to you and your studio. I have had a marvelous experience and have
learned so much from you, Judy and Tom. I could not have chosen a better
place to launch my new career. I am very excited!

Liza

Thank you very much!

"From production manager Gina Kijek, outsanding voice-over coach Judy
Kameny, to of course the one and only David Goldberg, the entire Edge Studio
organization is quite simply first-class.

When I first arrived at Edge Studio last year, after four Manhattan VO
coaches and six years developing myself in the VO business, I learned more
in forty-five minutes of coaching with David Goldberg than all experiences
previous.

David's many professional talents and strengths, as well as wonderful
personal qualities, are too numerous to mention in a brief testimonial.

Aside from being a phenomenal producer, David is just such a truly terrific
teacher with a super 'recording booth-side manner' so to speak. I respect
and admire David tremendously, one could not hope to find a finer gentleman
in the industry or elsewhere.

There is no better place in NYC for VO artists and aspiring VO artists to go
to for all the many services offered by David and his staff than Edge
Studio.

Final verdict: Thumbs up! Highly Recommended!

Thank you, David and Edge Studio!

Michael Schmitt New Jersey, USA"

Wow!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! This sounds wonderful! What a delight!

~ Thank you, Kristin, for all your hard work coaching me to get to this point. See you at the next step - the marketing class.

~ Thank you, David, for giving me direction at Backstage's ActorFest a few months ago. I don't think I would have made it to this point so fast without your enthusiastic encouragement.

~ Thank you, Jake - what skill and talent you have for making this all come together, and sound remarkable!

~ Thank you Morgan and Lara for always being so patient and helpful when I talked to you on the phone.

What a great team you have at Edge Studio!! I am revved up to go!

Muchisimas gracias,

Karen

Edge Studio coaching staff succeeded in preparing me to produce a terrific demo. (Two demos, actually) Their feedback was constructive, informed, and candid. What's more, I found no one (Discmakers, Mixonic, etc.) who could beat their small job CD duplication and printing rates.

Craig Phillips

Hi David:

Not sure if you remember me from the Norwalk Continuing Ed class you "taught" several months back. I also took a few classes with Randye in Fairfield in which you were kind enough to intervene to ensure she would be available on one particular date. Currently in the "career training package," and next step is a private coaching session Thursday with Eric Rath.

Anyway, as someone whose been in the marketing business for more than 25 years and worked with a variety of companies (although VO is a new area for me), I wanted to reach out to you and share my thoughts about Edge.

Your organization strikes me as one of the most professional and 'buttoned up' I've seen in a long time. From your instructors and office staff (Sara and Rose are terrific) to your generous support resources and organizational integrity, you guys truly stand out. Of course, I'm probably not telling you anything you don't already know.

Regardless of whether I succeed in this new direction, I just wanted to state that I am fortunate to have hooked up with such an organization as Edge.

Thanks.

Steve Goldstein

I got the book and it is EXCELLENT!!! You've done a great job and it's the most up to date thing I have seen. I'll be in touch. If we have the finds next semester and you have the interest, I'd love for you to come down and do a workshop with out students. We have CD burners and are supposed to be getting a new studio this summer. I appreciate all you did and hope to see you in person on my next trip to New York.
Thanks again,

Marian Monta
