Testimonials & Success Stories

Hey guys just recorded a spot for three long radio stations and I heard myself yesterday on the radio for the first time I freaked out thank you edge your the best!

Matt

Just wanted to bring you up to date on my audiobook life. Since January I have completed 4 more books! One author offered me the job without an audition - she just liked my demo. ... Thanks again for starting me on this path, I'm enjoying every minute of it.

After the excellent training I got from your coaches, especially Kristin
Price who worked with me patiently and astutely, I just booked my first
audiobook job. In fact, they liked my reading so much they have already
booked me for a second one a couple of months after the first one is
done! Thank you so much for all of your help and guidance. Your
coaches and classes are top notch and I will highly recommend Edge to
anyone seeking to venture into a career in voice over!

Edge Studio is awesome. As a newer VO instead of spending hundreds to thousands of dollars you can take a 4 hour class where you learn some VO basics and get to go into the studio and record. They will let you know if you have a shot at this business or not. When you are part of their learning programs you are getting amazing value, and a great list of coaches to work with that are working VO professionals, and know the business well. I am working with them now on my third demo and I was able to become a full time VO over the last year with the foundation they have given me. I book VO jobs regularly now, have agent representation, and made a new career for myself thanks to the wonderful people and training at Edge.

Great news! I have been asked to present a 10 minute version of MAGNOLIA MEMOIRS: The Civil War Love Letters, my project based on my great-grandparents correspondence at the beginning of the war. It if for the NATIONAL AUDIO THEATER FESTIVALS Vaudeville of Voices during their conference in Kansas City Missouri. It WILL be broadcast. The icing on the cake is the fact that my friend Barbara Rosenblat, queen of the Audio Book, will be reading them with me. What a treat. I’m also doing a dialogue that I edited compiling the DIARIES OF ADAM AND EVE for their Mark Twain night. Who knows, I might be able to make a go of this yet. Thanks for your coaching and encouragement.

Hey Joe!
Just wanted to let you know that I am signed commercially (including for VoiceOver work) at Abrams Artists Agency in NY! THANK YOU so much for your training and demo making for me! I owe so much to you!
I'll let you know when I get my first gig! :)
Much love!

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!

Thanks again!

Hi David!

I hope this e-mail finds you well! I just wanted to send you a quick update. I've been getting a lot of voice-over work lately through voices.com. I've been a subscriber for a while, but I finally got serious about it this spring, and since March I have booked 16 jobs through the site, which have paid back all the money I spent on equipment and the subscription fee about three-fold. I've booked explainer videos, VO for a documentary, an online safety course for kids, the voice for a character on a phone app, a children's book on tape, and even a TV commercial. I've also been steadily booking for Holdcom, booking about 17 jobs for them since I joined their roster in December.

Thanks for reading, and have a great summer!

Brett

You might like to know I am recording my first job tomorrow, at Golden Sound here in DC. It is a library tour for the university I used to work at in London, and I am very excited about it! Thank you, Edge, for helping me get to this point!

Kate Daubney

Since taking your course and making my demo I have recovered my costs
and am now in the profit from the work I have obtained!

Amy (Geragosian) Fox - New York, NY

Hi David
I got my first job! (aren't you just so proud!!?) It was surprisingly laid back. But now I can say I did a spot for Estee Lauder! How cool is that...
Best,

Amanda

Some good news. If you remember you coached me over the phone for my first voice over audition a few weeks ago. It was for a show on the History Channel. I just found out that I booked the job. I kept your notes in front of me while doing the reading and wanted to say thank you for your insights and help. I appreciate your direct approach to the work.
I look forward to working on my demo tape with you.

Cris Dovich

I've been meaning to give you and update. Got a second gig! And a few more on the horizon! Go into the studio this weekend. Very exciting. Thanks for sharing the tools and training.
I give praises to you and Edge Studio everywhere I go. You might be hearing from a couple of my co-workers soon.
I'll be in touch.

Valarie Clark

Hi David,
I just got a great job narrating a multimedia presentation. I have also recently done a couple series of promos! I really appreciate your help and approach.

Diane Ligon

David, Less than a week after we did my demo, I've already booked my first commercials. I hand-delivered a copy of my demo to a company, and within 10 minutes of leaving there, my cell phone was ringing and they booked me for two commercials next week. I was so excited that I couldn't sleep a wink last night (and am I ever a wreck today.) Thanks big time for all the help you've been in preparing my demos, and for the coaching,

Patrick Hagerty

Just wanted to let you know that I got my first VO gig! As you may remember I am living in DC now and I have been passively trying to get some freelance VO work. I was selected to dub English over a Korean Shaman for a documentary about the paranormal. It is set to air on TLC! Anyway, I will keep you posted for the air date. Thanks for all your help. Hope all is well in NY.
Sincerely,

Eric J. Seader

I studied voice-over technique with the pros at Edge Studio and they produced my narrative demo. It wasn't long after that I got results. I work for a large corporation with an in-house creative services group. I delivered my demo to the group's director and offered my services. You can imagine my surprise and delight when he told me, "Am I glad to see you! We have more voice-over work than we can handle." Bringing these new skills to the table earned me a raise that more than paid for my VO training. Thanks again for the great training, the advice, and the first-rate demo...it was worth every penny.

Mark Schafron Gardner, Massachusetts

Hi, this is a message for David Goldberg.
I just wanted to let you know that I did a Promo for TLC's new album "Damaged" and it should be playing on Z100 any day now. I felt very comfortable and confident in the studio and was actually just used as a back up but then chosen over the other person. It was very exciting and I wanted to let you know. I have a copy of it if you ever want to hear it.
Hope you are well and thank you again for all your help.

Wow what a week! (by the way, Hi David). When I opened my email Thursday morning, I had my first VO job offer for a :60 TV commercial for a real estate group in South Carolina (via Voice123)! Finally! The seal is broken. Last night I was chosen from more that 165 respondents to voice the scratch narration for a two hour documentary on modern day piracy being produced for the History Channel!!! All this from the privacy of my own home studio. Wow, what an awesome feeling. Just wanted to say thank you, there's no way I would be doing what I am today without your guidance, patience, and support!

David
I got my first voice over job last week. Narrating a 45 minute documentary on the history of fisherman in Bermuda. Thanks for your coaching and support. I'll be in touch.

Valarie Clark

I heard my friend Jordan loved the 5-hour session and he told me I should write to tell you what I've been up to. It's been really great so far. I'm consistently auditioning through my agency (Steven Arcieri and Associates) and have booked two national PetsMart radio spot, a handful of Verizon Northeast regional spots, a one-liner in a Champs sports national ad, a demo for EPT (yes, the home pregnancy test), and a Washington Post radio spot. This is since July of last year when I first started auditioning. I recommend it all the time so I hope people have come your way. I really can't tell you how much I appreciate all the hours you spent working on my demo.
Hope all is well!
Sincerely,

Di

Hey, David
Just wanted to let you know I've got my first job tomorrow afternoon. It's a commercial for a restaurant in Jersey that's supposed to air on a local cable outlet. $300 for a 30-second spot. I'm psyched (a little nervous, too!).
Thanks.

Kevin

Hi David,
Guess what? I just got my first paid VO job!! It's only 3-4 lines for a documentary & I wont be paid much, but still, it's a start :) I am scheduled to record my lines on March 15 at 10am.

Dava

Since completing a voice over training course and submitting my first demo (thanks to you, Dave) to a radio station, my voice was selected as the female voice for the station. The station is redesigning its format with new voices, etc. This is technically my first major contract since venturing into this business

Veronica

Thanks for your recent rate advice on a vo project for which I was hired. I appreciate knowing that even though we are located in different markets, you always advise relative to the market I'm serving. I'm sure you work with voice over contacts that are both bigger and smaller than me, yet you treat my occasional questions with incredible timeliness and the understanding of how important it is to acquire each new job at any level of one's career.

Amy

Hi David,
I just got a great job narrating a multimedia presentation. I have also recently done a couple series of promos! I really appreciate your help and approach.

Diane Ligon

Thanks for the congratulations! It was a terrific first job to have...the script was well-written, and I received it in advance. The operation was very small--a director and a technician. I read most of the 13 modules in one take, and the director seemed happy with the way I followed his direction. He commented several times on how well I had prepared. What I did to prepare was read the script several times and also review it and my reading using the Industry Guidebook (and of course, reflected a lot on what I've learned in my coaching and preparation sessions!) It was a very positive experience and it's a great feeling to finally have been employed as a VoiceOver talent!
Regards,

Deb Fallon

I just got another job off of the audition mp3 you helped me create...you guys are the BEST!

Daniela

Hello David,

Just want to send you a thank you note for all of the assistance Edge Studio has provided for me in launching my voice career. I did my first paid VO gig today, and it was so much fun! I truly know that this is my calling.

The spot was to provide voiceover for a video on the Flu epidemic and other outbreaks. The take went so well! I read my lines perfectly and was in and out of the booth in 5 minutes. They all loved it, and sent Kendra an e-mail also to let her know they enjoyed working with me. Not bad for my first gig!

Thanks again, and I hope to work with Edge again very soon, and often!

By the way, I was listening in on your call for Voiceover Today earlier this week on IVR. Nice.
Vocally Yours,

Evette Collins

Hi David,
I feel so confident in my abilities, thanks to you and your staff, and I wanted you to know how much I appreciate you all and all that you do. I have hopefully just completed my first home recording job...an IVR and On Hold script for two different businesses, and there is a third coming in. Looking forward to my first post ProTools paycheck!
Thank you so much, and will definitely keep you posted!
Ein gutes neues Jahre! (A good new year!)
