Testimonials & Success Stories

Hope this finds you doing well today. Looking forward to David's class later in the day.

Just wanted to pass my appreciation along for the coaching session with Naomi Jacobson.

It was like a full-course meal. When I am able to digest it and put it into practice it will make my "reads" into non-reads.

She is one of the very best coaches I have ever had. Her instruction was very practical. She quickly discovered my areas of weakness and had practical ways to overcome them!

Loved the session and am looking forward to the next one, and the next, and the next after that!

Scott

A quick email to provide some feedback on my session with Lara because it was so good. She’s so knowledgeable and helpful and I’ve immediately implemented one of her suggestions and feel like it has already helped! Money well spent!

we did that day.

Thank you!

Thank you for the precisely directed, challenging, wise
coaching session on October 16. You have taught me
so much about the art,craft and subtleties of Voice-over.

Good morning Joey,

Yesterday evening I had my co-coaching session with Carol and Mike. I cannot begin to tell you just how amazingly wonderful it was.

Not only that, but it was incredibly productive, inspiring and educational.

True…all of my sessions have been mind-blowing, but this being my last of the six, and with 2 coaches providing their expertise, it was beautiful.

Simply marvelous – words escape me to express just how great it was.

Can I ask a favor? Is it possible for you to either forward this email and/or give my thanks and gratitude for their time yesterday evening?

I just really want to say thank you - both to you Joey for setting this up and to Carol/Mike for their knowledge.

It was just truly amazing.

Kevin

Thanks again for hiring such a gifted coach as Naomi Jacobson. During our first session she immediately noticed my areas of weakness and gave very practical techniques on how overcome them.

She worked with me on "personalizing" the script which is exactly what I needed.

Recently hit a dry spell where I had not booked a job for 2 months. Then, less than a week after working with Naomi I booked one and the client loved it!

Looking forward to working with her some more after I can put into practice the great techniques she taught in our first session.

Hi Linda,

Just wanted to say thank you for the amazing
coaching session today. Your insights, observations,
direction, and the techniques you taught me give
me so much to work with going forward. I appreciate
the precision, passion and patience you bring to
coaching. It was great to work with you!

Mary

What a fantastic Skype session I had with Danielle Quisenberry. It was my first private coaching session and it was filled with great information that will definitely help move me forward in my voiceover career. Danielle made me feel comfortable and easily expressed what she needed to help me improve. I'm looking forward to using techniques she taught me and our next session. Thank you, Edge and Danielle!

David and folks at Edge Training -

I appreciated our Coaching Session very much. Very informative: and David, your genuineness made the session fun and put me at ease. It is refreshing to work with someone who loves what they do.

Thank you for the clear and positive feedback. Yes, I plan to follow up with your recommendations.
Again, it was a very enjoyable session. Thank you.

Barbara

Yesterday I had a coaching session with Naomi that went really well…she's awesome! Such a sweet woman!

Awesome session. Thank you, Kristin! These one-on-ones are an amazing part of the program, and actually my favorite part :)

Nick

Hello, Team Training!

These are a first for me--these coaching notes. Much appreciated!

Kristin was a terrific coach. She put me at ease and had lots of great advice. But then I knew she would after receiving a great "check up" with her a couple of months back. I comb the Feedback Forum for her "check-ups" with other students, too. Reading them, I always learn something.

I imagine many students find a coach they're comfortable with and stick with them, but I've had a great experience switching coaches for every session. Every coach has had their own, somewhat unique, very helpful was of coaching. I love it.

Kristin was right. I do plan on adding a demo into my program, and some coaching sessions, too. I have good news, too: with my new, Edge-inspired confidence, I put myself out there this very week and scored my first VO job. Yay!

Tonia

Hi Danielle,
My Narration demo has arrived.
Thank you for your dedicated, detailed, specific, patient coaching.
Your coaching made an incredible difference for me and I believe
I grew as a Voice actor. I hear myself saying things now--naturally--in
everyday speech with such clear articulation and intention that I am
amazed.

I continue to use all the practices, exercises and methods you
taught me in my daily practice. The Julia Child/Darth Vader contrast
remains mystifying to my beagle,Fiona! But she still stays for practice.

And, working with you, doing this thing I love, was not only a
great experience, it was fun.

I am very grateful for your brilliant coaching and
appreciate your presence in my life.

Hope all is well with you.
Thank you again!!

Mary C.

Hi Linda,

Thank you for the wise,wide-ranging,detailed,demanding
coaching session on November 15. I appreciate being
able to work with someone as gifted,experienced and
dedicated as you.

It was great to meet in person!

Mary

Dear Johnny,

Congratulations for your latest Audie award for solo male narration.

You are an inspiration to your fellow audiobook readers.

I hope to take some more lessons from you soon. Your instruction has always been very valuable.

Steve Gray

Simply a quick thank you to Carol Monda and Edge Studio for last evening's session as the most informative hour of Audio Book instruction I have ever had.

Carol is superb and she has pushed me on to the next level! I'm looking forward to many more sessions. Thanks.

Patrick C.

Great thanks to Kristin for really helping me
Along in the process. The support and
Criticisms have been so valuable. Thanks for the
Encouragement, and I look forward to
another session.

Richard

David,

Thank you very much for the superb,challenging,demanding
coaching session on September 19. Your direction is precise,
specific and inspirational. I learned a lot and realize
more clearly what I have to work on--and I will.

You're a fantastic teacher and director. Thanks again!

Mary

Hey Kristen,
I just wanted to drop you a note and say thank you for your wonderful coaching going into next
week's demo session. You have created an environment in which I have been able to take
chances and grow. Your creativity and skill, not only as a coach but as a working VO pro, are
an inspiration to me going forward. Your candor coupled with your ability to collaborate with
whatever I bring to the table and make it pretty (or as important, 86 it as the case may be) has
bolstered a growing realistic confidence in myself, not to mention my complete confidence and
trust in you. I know you'll always keep it real, honest and true. While I’m new to the world of
voice over, I’m not new to the professional acting/show biz world. I know how valuable your
skills are to actors just getting started and pros who wish to grow. I am so looking forward to
next week! That totally beats "what the hell am I doing?"

Marcus

Hi,
Huge THANKS to Leslie Bailey for an awesome coaching session!!!
I learned so much insightful, practical info. that really filled a gap for me.
She’s also a pleasure to work with.
Many Thanks,

Cheryl

Just wanted to post some of my notes as well. My coaching session was with Johnny Heller. Frankly, after I learned he was up for an audie and we had to reschedule a few times I was worried about how much time he would have for coaching someone like me of little renown.

Totally unjustified. He was GREAT! In fact, he has completely turned my style around and I feel hopeful about my audiobook narration for the first time in a long time. He was honest and went out of his way to make me feel comfortable.

Big, big thanks!

Laura

Thank you so much for imparting your expertise today and also for sending these notes so quickly!

I really enjoyed my first session: I so appreciate the opportunity to identify the weaker areas and your notes will be such a helpful resource from which to practice and, hopefully, improve!

With very warm wishes and many thanks again,

Elizabeth

Hi Linda,

I just wanted to thank you for today's session. Never having thought what an impact a one hour lesson could have, I left with an incredible boost in confidence about my future in VO. There really is something to relaxing and trusting in your coach.

Gina

Hi Edge,

Thanks for the notes! They, along with the notes I wrote on my train ride home, are definitely helpful!

I had a great time training with Danielle yesterday! She's a warm person, and I was very comfortable with her right from the start. Her tips and insights were incredibly helpful ~ seemingly little changes really made a big difference that I could hear right away! I couldn't believe how quickly the hour went, and I walked away with a lot more information and things I will definitely be focusing on more during practice and future reads.

Thanks so very much again! I am so looking forward to future private coaching sessions!

Patty

recently had coaching sessions with David Goldberg and Linda Jones. I also want to add that both of these instructors are great teachers. They are encouraging, knowledgeable and insightful and, as a result, they are able to pass along their knowledge with tips that are tailored to what was needed to improve my performance. I valued the time I was able to have with both of them and I look forward to further sessions!

Dennis

Carol……Thanks so much for your terrific help and coaching today!
I really enjoyed our time and learned a lot from you.

Cheryl

Hi Linda,

I really enjoyed my first session: I so appreciate the opportunity to identify the weaker areas and your notes will be such a helpful resource from which to practice and, hopefully, improve!

Elizabeth

I just had to let you know that I had a great read for an agent tonight by applying what I learned in today's session. The agent, brought her own copy for us to read. It was for a bank and the first line read "I loved my bank". To practice reading it three different ways, I asked myself three questions:
1. How do I feel about triple scoop hot fudge sundaes
2. How do I feel about a really good friend (I picked a specific one)
3. How do I feel about someone I have a crush on (a specific person)
I then thought the first question right before the read and the agent told me I did a fantastic job and she wants me to send her a headshot as soon as I get one.

Thank you again for your fantastic teaching!
