Testimonials & Success Stories

Excellent , thank you.

I am waiting for the new website changes and headshots are scheduled for this week. You have pushed me in the right direction and I am so grateful for that!

Please do pass on my thanks again to David Goldberg for these - not to mention for his time and very kind and thoughtful consideration yesterday. His vast expertise and deeply ethical professionalism were so impressive and I learned an enormous amount. And it was fun!

Kamran Khan: Oh man, things have never been better since your class. I feel like you helped me find my money voice... So thanks for all of that!

David Goldberg: hey, just read this. that's great. are you feeling better about your auditions? or are you getting more work?

Kamran Khan: For the past two weeks straight, I've booked a gig almost every day! And I'm very quick to catch glottal stops should one sneak in!

David Goldberg: That's freaking awesome!!!!! Are these jobs from auditions? Or on-going clients?

Kamran Khan: Primarily auditions! And as a result, those new clients are quickly turning into regular on-going clients!

David Goldberg: nice!!!

Kamran Khan: The biggest thing you helped me realize is that for me, "energy" does not mean higher pitch. I'm not that guy. I'm the "Conversational Smart Guy Next Door who specializes in Explainers for Business and Technology Companies"

Kamran Khan: And the trend is still going...just woke up to this "Thank you for auditioning Kamran, I am hoping for a decision this week. You have a really great chance! -Jack"

David Goldberg: That's great Kamran!!!:::... . . . . .

Kamran Khan: You have no idea! It feels so great to wake up to an email like this on a daily basis! Thanks again David!!!

David Goldberg: can i use this whole skype thread as a testimonial?

Kamran Khan: absolutely

Kamran Khan: more than happy to give back to Edge in any way that I can and I mean that

Kamran Khan

first met David in September 2011 at FaffCon3 in Hershey, PA.
I attended two sessions that he facilitated and was very impressed with his clarity, knowledge and willingness to share his experience in the recording industry.
After one of the sessions, he asked me to send him my demo and I did.
Soon thereafter, we set up a phone call for him to give feedback on the demo. I was amazed that he was willing to take time to do this and was excited to hear his thoughts.
His first statement was "I stopped listening at three seconds!" I said, "wow...what did I do wrong!?"
He very calmly and respectfully said "you pronounced the word "introduce" as "innerduce" in the first clip in your demo. He then explained the importance of enunciating every word properly. I got it! He then spent nearly two hours talking to me about my Voiceover career plans, abilities and strengths. He asked me to resend my updated demo and my medical narration demo, which is one of my strengths.
When we spoke the second time he genuinely described my improvement, gave me more tips to keep in mind while working the mic and gave me the steps required to get my medical narration demo listed on the Edge Studios production website.
I really appreciated David's willingness to take the time to help me in this way. I have had many opportunities to offer similar encouragement to budding VO actors and continue to do so.
Earlier this year I was watching television and heard Jeff Bridges on a new Hyundai commercial where he said "innerducing the all new 2013 Hyundai..." I sent David an email to tell him of the apparent mispronunciation of the word in that national spot...and he quickly sent a reply stating "well, at least you know you're better than Jeff Bridges!" What a hoot!
I also really appreciate the wonderful support that Edge Studios provides free to the VoiceOver community in terms of rate information, example copy, feedback opportunities and training on their website.
Thank you for this opportunity to share my experience of David!

David Goldberg is a genius! I learned more from him in 1 hour than I had after 1 year of Voice Over classes. Passionate, Inspiring, and Talented. David brings out the best in everyone who works with him because he hears things that others miss. In the art of Voice Over, David truly is a Master. If you are serious about taking your career to the next level, David will teach you the steps to take to achieve success. I can't say enough good things about David. His coaching skills are second to none!

Shelley

Congratulations Edge on your 30 Year Anniversary. I really enjoyed the David Goldberg Interview and his 'pearls of wisdom.'
Honestly, I'm proud to be an Edge graduate and as David pointed out Learning Never Ends in the 'art' of voiceover...so I'll keep coming back to learn from the best. David Goldberg thank you and the entire Edge team.

Theresa

Hey David,
I REALLY loved last night's webinar. Great food for thought and a fun
group of people. Many thanks!

Mary Ann

Hi David,

I just received a formal offer for representation with the XXXX Agency.
...I thank you very much.

Loved David G and Pat!

David,
Thanks so much for the lesson today. I am so impressed with your ability to focus on so many things in an hour - I have never accomplished so much in such a short time and I so appreciate your positive yet honest approach. I am very excited that I finally took the first step with you. Debbie has raved about you for years and I understand why. I am a big fan!
...Already looking forward to Tuesday.

Jeanne

Hi, David-

Thank you for taking time out of your day to share your insight with me! I'll be making a lot of changes to my website and will share with you once everything is set.

I realize that you're a busy guy; it means a lot that you'd take the time to help me

Hi David!
...The show has been airing for a couple of weeks now and I've recorded 2 more episodes since our training session I have 3 more to do this week. Your advice really helped, especially relaxing and flowing into the lines. I got a $25 ipad mic stand mount to free up my hands and am using a great app called Notability that let's you highlight and annotate PDFs. ...Thanks for following up! I really appreciate your help.

Alex

All of the information you sent was very helpful! You're the best!

Jeanne

Hi David -

Thanks so much -- you made my week :)

I do appreciate it. You are really an amazing coach. My only regret is not starting out with you a few years ago -- but I'm glad I'm on the right track now! I am even getting better at editing - I LOVE Twisted Wave!

Have a great weekend!

Terri

Hi David,

Thank you for such an interesting presentation of valuable information. I am looking forward to reviewing the recording of the session. It was also good to hear your voice. You gave excellent direction!

Ruth

This was uniquely helpful. I was one who read some script; David’s comments were on point and nothing was said in a negative manner, which made it easy to take in and quickly incorporate. He was also the first person who has ever mentioned a certain vocal issue or habit I was unaware of and, as he suggested, I signed up for the Nov 11 vocal health class to deal with this. His choice to speak in the role of a casting director proved to be an eye opener. In short, all comments helpful, worth every minute, done extremely well.

I learned SO much in such a short a period of time at the small, round table near the Edge Studio display at V/O Atlanta 2014. Five minutes flew right by as David worked with me, offered me precise pointers and assisted me with my delivery of a short piece of copy.

Later that evening, watching David work with lots of conference participants (including myself) on copy interpretation and delivery over a two hour period was absolutely amazing. It was the highlight of V/O Atlanta 2014.

I don't see how anyone could go wrong with getting voice over training with Edge Studio.

Ed Phillips

David,

Just wanted to say thanks again for the call/talk we had some months ago ... You really helped me to think about it in the right way, accept the change and trust it.

Loved David G's first presentation and wished it was longer than 30 min.

Wow! Awesome, thank you so much for the boost! That right there got my creative juices flowing! Funny, I've had a bunch of ideas that I've always flirted with, but was always a bit tentative to step out of the box in-fear of career suicide. It's going to feel really good to step out of the norm. Thank you!!!

Shane

What a wonderful recap and outline of action steps for me to chisel away at, David. Cheers!

I'm still processing it all and I'm doing it from a place of gratitude. :)

Appreciating You,

Debby

Hi David,

Hope you enjoyed the long weekend. I just wanted to take a quick minute to say "Thank You" for your support and knowledge you passed on at Faffcon 8.

I regret not getting to meet you, but you were in pretty high demand. I really enjoyed your Saturday night workshop.

Hope to meet you in the future. When the time arises for a new demo or training I will give you a call.

Thank you

Matt R

David,
I can't thank you enough for the time you spent with me today. Your insights and suggestions did not fall on deaf ears. I greatly appreciate your honesty and encouragement...and the kick in the butt I've been needing to move more in the right direction to improve my demo's & website.
We'll be in touch very soon.

Derek

I have had the opportunity to be coached by David Goldberg on several occasions. When I first started training with "Edge" studio, David always gave meaningful feedback on phone coaching sessions for technique 101. As I progressed further into my career and had the chance to do a career guidance session with David, he was very helpful. He gave me step by step guidelines for how to improve my website, my narration demo, and how to improve my success in the industry as a whole. David is knowledgeable, honest, kind, and has a great ear- which is so key in the VO business! I would highly recommend working with David to anyone who wants to take their VO career to the next level!!

John--

Thank you. Another informative session. Please share my appreciation with David.

Loretta

The class was incredibly informative - tough - but tons of great advice. David's commitment to making us better VO actors was clearly evident. Really impressive, especially working with us to put reads into there overall context, or as he put it, "you're only part of the show." Have to admit I was a bit nervous and hurried my read, but David was reassuring, noting that his focus was on making us the best we could be.

John A.

David, thank you so much for all of your feedback. I really appreciate it. I can't wait to start applying everything that I learned :-)

Sharon A.

When David's Road Trip came through San Francisco, I jumped at the chance to learn from him. I mainly narrate long-form jobs, and was in sad need of a tune-up on my commercial delivery. David did a great job in this class working with very new folks, as well as seasoned pros. He gave a good synopsis of the industry and insight into the casting process, while going over sound business practices and how they can affect your chances at getting hired. At the end of the day I felt much more confident in my script interpretation skills, and self-direction techniques. David's patience and humor made the day fly by.

Ann M. Richardson, Narrator

It would have been nice if we had been able to see more of the initial speakers but It would have turned the event into two days for sure.

Hi David,

I just wanted to reach out and let you know how much I enjoyed FAFFCON 6 in San Antonio last weekend! I really appreciate your genuine interest in vo talent and how to help us all. ...your insight and advice was very much appreciated from my end and I'm sure everyone else as well. It was great meeting you and I hope we can continue dialog throughout the year!

Thanks again,

Barry
