Testimonials & Success Stories

Informative, great direction supportive, clear and precise. Director/instructor/coach has the ability to set one at ease in what would normally be an anxiety provoking evaluative session.

Hello,
I just wanted to say “thanks'” for the IVO class. It was very helpful and encouraging, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Danielle was very methodical in her approach and well-organized, and she was good to meet each of us where we are in this journey.
I am in the process of deciding whether to go forward at this time, although I suspect I will.
Thanks again, and many blessings to you.

Dear Edge Studio Training Team,

I just wanted you to know what a great time I had in the web-based Investigate VO class with Noelle Romano on March 17th.

As a full-time trainer/educator for the past 20+ years, I've literally taught thousands of people from all around the world and I've evaluated hundreds of trainers and coaches. And, let me tell you, Noelle has a gift!

Not only is she a talented voice actor, but she is an incredibly patient and supportive coach. She encouraged us to take risks, made it safe for us to do so, and gave us just the right amount of feedback to help us progress with each read.

And, the structure of the IVO program was just perfect too! Not too long. Not too short. Just the right amount of information we needed to know to give us a healthy dose of reality, but even more inspiration to keep going. I honestly can't think of anything I'd tweak or change. It worked brilliantly for me.

This is my first experience with Edge and I am beyond impressed so far. I look forward to jumping into the ABC program ASAP and continuing my training with Edge.

My thanks to you (and Noelle) for all your support so far.

With much gratitude and best wishes,

John K

Hi Noelle,

Thank you very much for your time! I really enjoyed the class, and appreciate your evaluation.

Hi Noelle, and the EdgeStudio Education team,

Thank you for a thoroughly delightful webinar earlier this evening (November 9, 2016). It was great to both learn and play, to experience a bit of the training in store, and to have the opportunity to learn from both a professional and fellow students. Thank you for offering these introductory sessions.

For Noelle in particular, thank you for the insightful and individualized attention paid to each student, as well as for your realistic approach. It was very interesting to get to listen to one another then learn from the feedback and direction you gave. And your realism -- about timeframes, what's involved in the business, etc -- was wonderfully refreshing, and very much appreciated.

Hi,

I enjoyed the class, the instructor, and the format. There was a fair mix of "what's this all about" and "let's roll up our sleeves and try this." Noelle Romano was engaging and positive, working to build a positive rapport with all of us quickly. From a format point of view, she wisely told us what we were going to do and how we were going to do it and then made it happen.

Useful feedback was received in under a day with Kendra making contact the next morning. What impresses me most about Edge is that people are not pushy. There is tons of info on the website and there is a clear plan for furthering my voice over education. I look forward to the next chapter in this journey.

Dear Bill:

We met a couple of Saturdays ago when I took your Introduction to Voice Over workshop for Edge Studios in Springfield. I wanted to reach out and thank you again for a highly informative, accessible, and even entertaining session. Your written comments were also helpful and encouraging. As I relayed to Kendra in the Education Department during our discussion about going forward with the Edge program, your professionalism and obvious talent and passion for what you do was essential in convincing me that giving Edge my money would be a wise investment for the future.

I don’t know where this all might take me in the voice over field but I do hope our paths may cross down the road.

Randye,
I just want to thank you for taking time out of a very busy day for you to teach the class on Saturday. I enjoyed my time there and learned a lot.
The main thing I took away from the class is to do it right. I plan on taking the rest of the year to save money, learn about the business and learn how to run a small business. I look forward to taking the classes in 2014 and begin my pursuit as a voice talent.

Damien

What a great job Noel did in her webinar. The whole process which was completely new to me went as smoothly as could be. Not only was the practice and immediate feedback personal and useful, it was additionally useful to be able to hear what everyone was doing and their feedback at the same time.
I thought that 3 hours would drag, but it moved along quickly because of the content and instructor. Very well planned and executed! My additional thanks to all the others at Edge studios whom I have spoken to who patiently answered every question in minute detail and were also intuitive and experienced enough to know what my underlying questions were as well.
There are simply not enough superlative words in the thesaurus to compliment everyone of you on your outstanding and detailed work! Thank you very much!

Martin

I thoroughly enjoyed the class yesterday and am planning to continue training with Edge – I thought Noelle was excellent.

Thanks a lot for coming back with the evaluation notes so quickly!

I look forward to continuing with my training.

Thanks for all the great insight delivered today.

Maria

Thank you so much for offering the Investigate class. As I explained to Noelle, people have said that I have a great speaking voice but I never believed they were being truthful. But having a professional from both sides of the microphone take the time to walk us thru some basic exercises and give their opinion was just wonderful. I had the absolute best time listening to the different attendees give their reads and hear Noelle offer wonderful coaching techniques. Noelle answered so many questions I had about the industry and training. All night long I kept hoping and praying that my voice was good enough to train with Edge Studio and one day work as a real VO talent.

I would recommend Edge to anyone!

Jen

I attended the 4 hour introductory workshop at Edge Studio last week and was very impressed with the facility as well as with the young woman who ran the workshop. She was extremely knowledgeable of the voice over business and made the 8 of us feel very welcomed and comfortable. I especially like the fact that we were given time in the recording booth and given critical analysis of our voice over potential. As a result, I signed up for the full training and look forward to the classes.

Albert B

Here's my feedback.

- The class-size was perfect.
- All the interaction was driven through the instructor. Although would be nice to chat with my classmates that would've taken time away from the task at hand.
-Verbal feedback from classmates was muted. It would've been nice to tell a classmate "hey good job" or something along those lines but the only feedback that mattered came from the instructor, so it was just right.
- Instructor did a fantastic job of assigning scripts based on voice type.
- the resulting evaluation was spot on.

Scott

I big thank you for the class yesterday with Noelle Romano. That woman knows her stuff! I was really impressed with how she led the class and with the wealth of information presented. I don't know if Edge sends out a survey to participants following the classes, but just in case they don't, I wanted to share that feedback with you.

Theresa

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the webinar on April 10th. Noel did a amazing job of making the class fun and informative.
We dealt with a few technical glitches from time to time but nothing that took away from the class overall. A few nerves were evident which is I'm sure is common among those of us new to this, and again Noel did a wonderful job of keeping us confident and making it a relaxing environment as she coached us on our reads.

There was plenty of time at the end of the class for questions, and each one of us was given ample opportunity to ask away on any thing we had on our minds.

I honestly can't think of anything that needs to be changed or tweaked, and I would suggest to anyone who exploring getting into the voice over profession that this class is the one of the most important first steps they could take.

Terry

The class was terrific. Noelle was not only professional and informative, but also very warm and funny. She eased us into the process of reading scripts aloud in a stepwise fashion that helped settle my nerves (mostly!).

Tonia

I thought the v/o info class was very informative, fun, and ran smoothly. Noelle was very patient with all . Keep things the way they are!!

Joe

In case I missed sending it, this is to let you know I really enjoyed the Investigate Voice Over Webinar with Noelle. She did a fantastic job! Great coaching skills and super easy voice to listen to...which if you are listening for 3 hours that is super important to me.
Best of all - she gave honest feedback, which is really refreshing.

I'm looking forward to being part of the Edge Training Program and participating in other speciality webinars. Susanne Pinedo is also doing a great job as my education advisor. So far, so good.

Theresa D.

The session was fun and the time spent with Noelle brought out talents and weaknesses that I was and wasn't aware of. Now comes the time of making the decision of whether or not this 77 year old has enough "fire in the belly" to pursue this. Thanks.

The class gave me the simple tools I needed to know how to present a script based on what type of script it was and the audience that it is aimed toward. The tips and corrections given to others in the class, allowed me to practice and correct my own technique while my mic was muted. My evaluation also gave me exactly the kind of information I needed in order to make my next few moves regarding my Voice Over Career. The class was certainly worth both my time and my money Noelle Romano was our class instructor and she did a fantastic job at giving both harsh advise and sincere compliments when we were given our lines. It took me two weeks to put together enough money to purchase the class and about a month the find a schedule that would work. With that said, I still retain my previous statement that this class was worth both my money and my time. I would recommend this class and specifically this instructor to any of my friends.

Hi Joey,

I just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU! I so enjoyed taking your workshop and getting coached by you on Saturday. It was a privilege studying with you. You really encouraged each and everyone of us and helped to bring out the best in us. Now that's a sign of a great coach/teacher!!!!

I have read through your notes for me and they were so encouraging! I am very excited to move forward and make this into at least a part-time career. I hope I can follow in your foot steps and turn this into full-time eventually.

I had a nice talk with Kendra this morning, and now I am just trying to sort out which plan will work best for me at this time.

Once again, thank you,

Robyn

Hi Randye! Thank you so much for the coaching and eval you gave me! I learned so much about technique as well as my own voice in such a short amount of time with you. It was invaluable! I am signed up for the into class at edge studio for tomorrow evening and am really looking forward to it!

Hi Kendra,
I just wanted to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed the class today. David was a great educator, fun and easy to work with. Please know that regardless of whatever the outcome is for me, I gained a ton of knowledge about the voice over industry.
I will highly recommend Edge Studio for anyone with an interest in voice over.
I am hopeful for a green light from David and ready to sign on with Edge if accepted.

Kel

Hi Kendra, I just wanted to say that I really had a blast during the Investigate Voice Over class! The four hours passed by so quickly and I couldn't get the smile off my face. Noelle is a wonderful coach with great energy, guidance, and encouragement. Although I am half way across the world she made me feel like I was sitting right next to her. Please let her know that I thoroughly enjoyed her class. Have a great day! George

George

Hi all,
The class was pretty basic and to the point; overall I think it was very well executed,
