I attended David Goldberg’s Promos and Trailers webinar and wanted to say how pleased I was with it. David Goldberg is amazing, very organized and he obviously took the time to ensure the presentation was current.

Great value for the money!

Hi David,
Thanks for the wonderful session on VOV tonight. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to be coached by you. I am enrolled in your training/demo program at Edge. Didn't think I'd ever be coached by the Master Himself. Thanks for your expertise and your generosity. I will always remember your advice to work on the ear as well as the voice.

Cecelia Jones

Taking private coaching sessions with David Goldberg was the best decision I could have made for my voice acting career. I started out in the field by signing up for one of those quick start programs and then worked in the field on my own for about 2 years -- booking very few gigs. I knew I had a marketable voice but realized that I needed to do something different to “up my game.” David Goldberg was the answer!

With David, I can honestly say that I have a voice coach for the first time. From our first session together, I knew that it was worth the investment because he could immediately pinpoint my weaknesses and would give me clear, detailed instructions how to eliminate them. David is incredibly patient, professional and has a phenomenal ear for voices that is unmatched in the industry. He is honest – helping you find your niche in the field – cautioning you what to go after and what to avoid.
Now when I record auditions in my home studio, I can immediately hear any mistakes I make and easily remedy them. My auditions are now crisp, clear and as close to professional quality as anyone can get. I confident submit quality auditions now and am booking many gigs.

Don’t get the impression that this field is easy – it certainly is not – and any compliments David gives you must be earned. But that’s the thing I love about David –I need someone to push me to work hard in this challenging industry and when I get a compliment from David, it’s a great feeling because I have earned it.

With David Goldberg as my coach, I know that the world will be hearing a lot from me in the future!

Training with David Goldberg is an experience in excellence. He has an irrefutable ear and with careful coaching, he can draw out the most nuanced phrase from his students, the most exacting read -- the very thing that transforms a read from good to spectacular. He is professional, erudite and a great pleasure to train with. I highly recommend training with David to any voice talent who wishes to polish their performance to luster.

You bring out more than anyone else has.

Thanks so much, David!
The webinar tonight was fantastic. I learned so much!
(… about voice over AND the many time benefits of having such a short name—who knew?!)
Look forward to the next one.

Hello David and Susanne,

I just wanted to send a quick follow up and say THANK YOU for my fantastic session with David yesterday (Monday 4/3)! Your advice and expert breakdown of my sound and technique was so helpful, and very much needed. Your guidance was direct, laser-like, and after it was over I found myself pumped up and with a clear direction. Plus, you even kindly went over the allotted time. Time is truly money in this business, and I deeply appreciate your generosity.

Susanne, you deserve great thanks as well! You were so very helpful in making this happen, and it was a pleasure to take your cheerful follow up call this morning.

I look forward to doing more sessions with Edge soon, but in the meantime, I've got some homework to do! :)

I first met Dave Goldberg as a fellow presenter at FaffCon 3 in 2011. He sat in on my seminar and soon after hired me to be a part of the Edge Studio team. It’s an honor and I’m eternally grateful!

We had a coaching session not long after that. He ran a diagnostic on my website & demos. His vast experience and uncanny ability to cut through the BS quickly made clear what I needed to do to improve both. His approach is VERY different because he has no ego to satiate and gets to the point as soon as possible. It’s refreshing!

Tom Dheere

David is patient, thoughtful and truly enjoys seeing his students improve and goes to great lengths to help make this happen, he’s an amazing coach and an unwavering partner with an unmatched perspective on all aspects of the voiceover business.

Great enthusiasm for my future

Melanie

I wanted to express my appreciation for your superlative 'Promos and Trailers' seminar on February 25th. My fellow students and I are very fortunate to have benefit of your knowledge of these sophisticated realms. Most importantly you possess an uncanny ability to identify and communicate what is most vital about these vocal realms.

In short David, what an fantastic Enterprise you have created at Edge Studio.

Mike N

David Goldberg is the BEST. As an Edge student I have had a few opportunities to work with him in group training classes. He has a wonderful way of putting you at ease, which I so appreciate. If you have a chance to work with him you won't be disappointed.

Debbie O.

Hi David,
Just a quick note of thanks for all you have done to help me find success in the world of VO.
You’ve taught me a lot, but it all comes down to this: You’ve truly helped me develop and refine my script interpretation and performance skills. Most importantly, you helped me “find my voice.”
But, because training and practice never ends, I’ll be submitting an audition tape tomorrow for your Phase 4 program.
You are an outstanding mentor, coach, director, and friend. I wish there were words that could adequately express my gratitude.

Thank you again (because, quite frankly, I just can’t say it enough).

Bill Lord

I met and worked briefly with David in workshops at Voice2014 in Anaheim. As an aspiring voice artist, I asked him to recommend one of his coaches at Edge Studio NYC- and I was impressed when he asked that I keep him posted about those sessions.

I am pleased to be training with David now. He keeps our sessions focused to make best use of the hour, always to my advantage. We move at a fast pace; yet there's time for my questions, observations, and his terrific sense of humor : ) His ears are keenly focused on every nuance of my delivery of script, and a detailed review of his observations is emailed to me within a day of our session.

I get the sense that David enjoys working with voice talent and cares about his clients' success; and I feel confident that he has my highest achievement in mind.

Davielle Kelly

Thanks again for helping me land the new gig!

Nate

Great class last night. Thanks for focusing on that type of read. It is becoming more popular and I think it's difficult for so many of us. I recently had a client that I believe was wanting me to give him that type of read. He liked my voice and audition but it was difficult for him to describe what he needed from me on the actual commercial. I had trouble understanding how much less energy he wanted from me on the read. I was thinking he needed more conversational.. but that was not what he meant. He sent me a scratch track he recorded but I had no idea what I was supposed to get from the track. I should have asked more questions, but I didn't, he directed and I kept trying again. I think he was looking for the type of read we were discussing last night. If only I could turn back time. I needed last nights class ... thank you.

Dear John,

Just wanted to thank you again for sponsoring the program on Telephony. Tonight's session was terrific! Enjoyed it immensely. Please extend my thanks and regards to David Goldberg!

Susan

Hi David,

I attended your Audition Intensive class this past Saturday. I thought it was excellent and extremely helpful, so I just wanted to drop an email to thank you.

I am just getting my vo career started (I trained at Edge, and had Kristen Thorne as my coach and narration demo producer.) It was an incredible experience, and I feel like I have a solid foundation to get started.

I plan to keep in touch with Edge and continue with classes, talk time and all of your many resources on your site. Hopefully our paths will cross again soon.

Nell M.

The best words to describe working with David are "focused and relaxed". He keeps things simple and doesn't overwhelm his students by trying to make them something they are not. He lets you be yourself and it comes out in the results rather than over-directing.

Victor Martinez

Working with David was transformational in several ways. I had my demos produced, had several good but inconsistent clients, and was chugging along, rather than speeding along, in my professional career. Sessions with David allowed me to clearly see the things that were putting the brakes on my auditions in the ears of casting directors and decision makers. He also highlighted the specific strengths he heard in my performances and helped me to sharpen those traits and land jobs. He modified my demos and the response has been phenomenal. If you intend on taking your career to the next level, then private sessions with David Goldberg are an imperative.

Susan

Hi David,

It must be about a year now since I came along to your (full day class)..., and a lot has happened since then. You asked me to keep you updated with how I got on, and I thought it was about time I did - so here is a summary of the last year!

I completed my demos (narration, commercial and audiobook)..., and since then I have been continually working. I moved back to the UK in July and bought myself a vocal booth (a gold booth from vocalbooth.com) which I found on eBay (no walk-in closets in my UK house!). I had already invested in a Neumann mic before I left the US, so I was up and running pretty quickly.

I have three regular clients who supply a lot of my work. One is based in Singapore and creates listening comprehension exercises for people who are learning English, another runs a website called XXXXXX which has lots of animated videos about how cars work/breakdown/are fixed. He sells subscriptions to garages who can then use the animations to show customers what has gone wrong with their cars and how they will be fixed. His biggest client in the UK is XXXXXX (I guess the US equivalent would be Jiffy Lube). He is constantly adding to his site, so more work keeps coming my way. My best client though is from XXXXXX Travel app - he creates guided tours of cities and museums all over the world, and I have narrated many audio tours for him.

I've had all kinds of other work too - telephony, corporate video, e-learning, web videos etc. I've done an 8 hour audiobook as well. I've done a few commercials including one for a hygienic toilet seat in Australia (!), but the most high profile job I've had to date is for Aqua Divina perfume by Bulgari. I was hired through Voices.com and the client bought the rights to use my voice on a TV commercial in India, China, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and South Korea. The video has recently been posted on YouTube and... has been listened to by over 1.2 million people!!

...Anyway, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for helping me on my way...

Hope all is well with you and Edge - I miss the Sunday night chats but 2am is a little late for me…..

Best wishes,

Liz

Thanks again for talking with me this morning - You helped me clarify some of my strategic objectives around intentionally building trust with clients.

Good afternoon Kendra,

I finished up my session with David a little over an hour ago. Please share with him how much I enjoyed it; as importantly, the information and feedback he provided gives me a ton of material to work with to make my audition performances substantially better and my demos more effective. I’m so excited about diving into more auditions.

Thanks again!

Chris B

I swear, every time I hear David talk, I take away something new. I'm so looking forward to his workshop this weekend in Houston!

Laura Branch-Mireles

Generosity, Intelligence, Integrity, and enormous creativity are the words that immediately come to mind when I think of David Goldberg of Edge Studios. As a voice talent since 2003, I have had the opportunity to work individually with many talented voice coaches, and have studied with leaders in the industry in both LA and NY. It is David Goldberg though, who has been instrumental in helping me build my career. His keen ear, generous heart , and positive approach keep me coming back to him, again and again. when we work together on auditions, he brings me to a level to which I could not direct myself. I am deeply grateful for his continued work with me.

Jeanne F

David, I shared with you initially that I am workable clay. That's why I come to you repeatedly for your expertise. I can't go wrong with it. I'm glad you noticed the things you did. The goal by Thursday is to have things up and running fully on the site with all of the changes you mentioned.

Great Workout David! Definitely awkward for me because it's not natural, but I get that it's another option. Thanks for the direction and challenging me to stretch.

Rhonda

Hi David,
Thank you for your time and direction in the Telephony seminar tonight. I look forward to future sessions and the opportunity to work more closely with Edge. Have an exceptional week!

Jenn

Hi, Edge!

I just wanted to drop a quick note to thank David Goldberg for his wonderfully informational, thoroughly inspiring, and extremely humbling Intensive Audition Workshop on December 2, 2017.

I feel fortunate to have attended for several reasons:

1) David is an incredible instructor, speaker, and voice-over guru! I can't list the number of new things I learned about voice-over on Saturday! He not only imparted some great tips and ideas, but encouraged the workshop attendees to use their new-found-learning right there in the studio!
2) It was wonderful to meet, co-coach, and learn from other workshop participants as well! It is no surprise that an organization as professional as Edge Studio attracts such wonderful students from all over!
3) As much as I learned, my eyes were also opened to how much there is still to learn, and always will be to learn about this wonderful craft of Voice-Over! Truly a sign of a successful class: learn great amounts, be inspired to learn more!

I hope that I can learn more from David in the future! Thanks for including me in this wonderful event!
