Testimonials & Success Stories

David,
Thank you for the terrific voice over class. It was not only informative but very entertaining as well. I resigned from a long time broadcast career a few years ago. Recently, I've been looking to get back to work. You gave me the answers I needed and I'm very excited to start my new voice over career!
A big thanks to David and Edge Studio!

I did just what your friend wants to do! I took a $ 25 class at the local high school on "How to get into voice work". Luckily the instructor was a professional from New York, who organized workshops and recording sessions with David Goldberg of Edge Studio (also in New York). David came here and conducted a three hour workshop and did our recordings for demos. We were given honest evaluations about whether we should go for commercial work or narration work or both (or none!).

Since my first experience I have continued to work with David, reengineering my original demo and adding others. I now have commercial, narration, and audio book demos, which are now on CD. Since the CD becomes your resume, it has to be as good as it can be, showing as much range as you have in style and sound. On the other hand, it has to be short; my commercial demo is 56 seconds long, and features 5 voices! I am waiting to add a specialty demo to my list, featuring accents, foreign languages, and quirky voices.

I cannot say enough about David's work. He is a real perfectionist, with that wonderful ear which hears everything. And he knows what's happening in the industry. The studio also offers a terrific email newsletter. He has always had great advice when I needed it.

I have not used anyone local, though I know they are here. But I can say that I am getting jobs with the demos that David did for me! I've done three voices for Discovery Channel, two for Learning Channel, one for a documentary about Lorton Prison, and an entire instructional video for a spa product.

Let me know if your friend wants more information.

Kerry,

I really enjoyed meeting you the other day. Although I was suffering with a cold and sinusitis, you really took the time to listen to my voice through all the nasal congestion that I had that day. You have a great ear to be able to hear anything positive about my session (unless you are trying to use me for a cold medicine commercial). You gave great advice and really narrowed down the things I should work on to improve my marketability. Thank you so much and I hope we work together again soon.

I had my last training session with David. In the first 15 minutes of that session I got to a level that I could not achieve, even after two one-hour sessions with another school. I am so thankful for fate and the opportunity to work with David. He is talented, professional and he knew exactly what was holding me back. I am excited about the possibilities.

Hi David,

Just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for the surprise coaching session yesterday! It was a real treat to be unexpectedly team coached by you at Deb's workshop! Thanks for letting us use your studio. You've developed quite an outgrowth program, am I'm delighted to be part of your tele-class Phase 4 group.

Hi, David. I promised you feedback as I was running out the door last Wednesday, so here goes:

Kristin was fantastic. You already know this because she works with you. There are many reasons why this class worked so well. Kristin has a very congenial and warm personality. I can imagine that not every voice over artist is as likable as Kristin. In addition, she inspires and gets the students excited about the work. I also really liked this class because we each had booth time. I took class from Susan Berkley many years ago, but we never had booth time. I think this is great way to give the students a "real world" application and feel closer to the end goal. Kristin also chose 2 bits of copy for each person that at first they may have questioned, but turned out to be right on the money regarding fit and potential for each student. This in itself was a difficult task as she had only know us as a group barely 2 hours at that point. She also got through the material in addition to fielding everyone's questions on various topics. I am looking into taking the next step, and will definitely include Kristin in my process.

Thank you to your team for a very positive and rewarding experience.

Best regards,

Suzanne Obolsky

Hi David,
First, like you, Mike was superb! He poured his passion for the
industry into the session. I liked that. And I really appreciated his
coaxing and encouragement. Between the two of you I feel that I have
been in "good hands" throughout the entire project and look forward to a
future session.

Thanks again to you and Mike for all your help!

I just did my phase 2 evaluation. I felt very at ease. My coach was exceptionally nice, made me feel very comfortable, and gave constructive criticism and advice on what forms of voice over would best suit my voice. I got the direction and clarification out of the session that I was hoping for. Thank you!

I sincerely look forward to working with you again very soon.

Hi Cathy,

Wow, was Jay Snyder an awesome teacher. He answered all my questions, was incredibly personable and knowledgeable, and adapted the coaching session practically by-the-minute.

Just want to pass thanks along to Kristin before I forget. She's a fabulous teacher, but I guess everyone knows that. Wish I had the money to just work with her for about a year! It's one thing for someone to point out what needs correcting, but another when they can help you find the way to make the change. Kristin always has a marvelous technique for showing me how to get to the bottom of the challenge and correct it. And, she's also very good at helping you not feel terrible about the improvement you need to make. Just love her ideas and teaching/coaching style.

All for now,

Sandra

Hi David:

Thank you for your email. I just completed my second training session this
past Thursday, and it was a blast. There's something about pursuing a
long-awaited interest. I so enjoy being in front of a mike in a sound booth
hearing my own voice. I don't want to sound vain, but I shouldn't have
waited so long to do this. I LOVE IT! Mike is very encouraging and lots of
fun during our sessions. I just hope I am progressing as I should.

David,
That was so much fun.
Thanks for your expert help and encouragement.
You are great to take direction from.
Looking forward to our next meeting.

Hi Paul. Well, the vo went very well with Fortunoff. They loved my work! I just can't thank you enough for your invaluable training and guidance. Whatever you are doing, it is working. I'm getting better all the time. It took about four hours and the price was right! I loved every minute of being in the studio. The Creative Director of the ad agency found me on voice123.com and contacted me directly. He said he listened to 80 demos and loved mine. He said he loved how I was "so New York". Wow, how flattering. This was just such an amazing experience and I'll tell you more in person. I'm considering doing the Ringer on Sat. Feb. 24, but will have to confirm. I'm in a Cabaret Show (music of the 30"s & 40's...what a blast!) and I'm not sure yet if they want rehearsal that day, as the show opens on March 10 in Bay Ridge. I'll confirm with you some time next week and we'll have dinner afterwards on me. Thanks again sweetie for all of your help. I could not have done it without you. See you soon.

Randye,

I just want to let you know what a privilege it has been to be under your tutelage these past few months. You have not only taught me so much about the industry but you have instilled confidence in me which is so critical for me in moving forward with my career since I've always been a little timid about my vocal abilities. You've also made the learning process a lot of fun! I felt a real connection with you and would definitely encourage anyone looking to get into this industry to work with you and Edge Studio.

Jean:
I finished my demo recording this past Tuesday. I worked with David and
Tom and they were both great.

I had my last training session with David. In the first 15 minutes of that session I got to a level that I could not achieve, even after two one-hour sessions with another school.

I am so thankful for fate and the opportunity to work with David. He is talented, professional and he knew exactly what was holding me back. I am excited about the possibilities.

Dear David,
Thanks very much for your help and encouragement...and guiding me
in the right steps for my voice-over experiences.
From the first time at the studio, you made me and the class feel right at
home

Dear Kerry,
Working with you last week was great. I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly and informative you were. I felt completely comfortable in the studio. I left with a sense of contentment and hope for future work. I'm looking forward to working with the studio very soon.
Sincerely,

Todd Fleming

I feel very fortunate to have found Edge Studio. David and Mike are very knowledgeable, patient, and supportive teachers, and they deliver their instruction in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. They allow students to learn and progress at a comfortable pace and always strive to have them do their best. I would recommend Edge Studio highly to anyone. I can't think of anyplace else where I would have wanted to be trained...or any other studio where I'd want to continue my training.

Dale Grant - North Burnswick, NJ

Hi David,
I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic coaching session I had with Randye last Friday.
Although I had originally booked the hour as coaching/recording for a demo update.... we actually focused on picking the right genre for me and worked on that type of copy. Randye even gracioiusly reviewed my Narration and Commercial demos that I sent to her prior to the session. It was so beneficial to hear her constructive review of what I have already, what I could work on and what would be a good supplemental specialty demo. I left there with renewed confidence in myself, my budding career and with a more clear vision of the types of work I will target next.
We decided to target e-learning for my specialty demo that I will record next. I will call Lara to schedule that very soon!

Michele

David,
Thanks for all your time and input during our evaluation training placement. I learned much and took many notes for future reference. I am glad I read the manual ahead of time. You are very thorough and I am looking forward to my evaluation on Tuesday.
Sincerely,

Carolyn E Durham, NC

David,
I had an enormously great time making the 6th Ave commercials. I just wanted to let you know that I couldn't have done it without you. You took me from sounding like a novice to sounding professional.
I want to thank you for being such a good coach, teacher and director, and for believing in me to give me this opportunity. I look forward to working with you again.

Joe D.

Hi Kerry,

Thank you for your expert coaching Monday. Your advice helped me tremendously, as did your patience and encouragement, while I learned to practice the tricks of the trade. Please feel free to use that as a testimonial! : ) Thank you, too, for the emailed information.

Take care,

Robin Swenholt

David - you have a calming personal style that makes it easy to take direction and receive criticism!

Tina Frey - New York, NY - June, 2000

Thank you SO much! I really enjoyed Kristin

There is NO BETTER voice over coach than Danielle Quisenberrry. I especially appreciate the way she shares her knowledge and experience in a way that makes you feel comfortable. She communicates with you in a way that's easily understood. If you want to get into the voice over arena, you need Danielle.

Jim

Hi David,
First off, I'd like to thank you for your time on Monday. I was very impressed with the session and you were absolutely right about learning a lot in that short period of time! I found all your feedback very helpful and useful. I'm looking forward to working with Edge Studio again to help prepare me for my demo and ultimately my voice-over career!
Thanks again,
p.s. You were correct, NOBODY recognized me on the CD!
