Testimonials & Success Stories

Yesterday I had a coaching session with Naomi that went really well…she's awesome! Such a sweet woman!

David and folks at Edge Training -

I appreciated our Coaching Session very much. Very informative: and David, your genuineness made the session fun and put me at ease. It is refreshing to work with someone who loves what they do.

Thank you for the clear and positive feedback. Yes, I plan to follow up with your recommendations.
Again, it was a very enjoyable session. Thank you.


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!


Awesome session. Thank you, Kristin! These one-on-ones are an amazing part of the program, and actually my favorite part :)


Hi Linda,

Thank you for the wise,wide-ranging,detailed,demanding
coaching session on November 15. I appreciate being
able to work with someone as gifted,experienced and
dedicated as you.

It was great to meet in person!


Hi Danielle,
My Narration demo has arrived.
Thank you for your dedicated, detailed, specific, patient coaching.
Your coaching made an incredible difference for me and I believe
I grew as a Voice actor. I hear myself saying things now--naturally--in
everyday speech with such clear articulation and intention that I am

I continue to use all the practices, exercises and methods you
taught me in my daily practice. The Julia Child/Darth Vader contrast
remains mystifying to my beagle,Fiona! But she still stays for practice.

And, working with you, doing this thing I love, was not only a
great experience, it was fun.

I am very grateful for your brilliant coaching and
appreciate your presence in my life.

Hope all is well with you.
Thank you again!!

Simply a quick thank you to Carol Monda and Edge Studio for last evening's session as the most informative hour of Audio Book instruction I have ever had.

Carol is superb and she has pushed me on to the next level! I'm looking forward to many more sessions. Thanks.

Dear Johnny,

Congratulations for your latest Audie award for solo male narration.

You are an inspiration to your fellow audiobook readers.

I hope to take some more lessons from you soon. Your instruction has always been very valuable.

Thank you very much for the superb,challenging,demanding
coaching session on September 19. Your direction is precise,
specific and inspirational. I learned a lot and realize
more clearly what I have to work on--and I will.

You're a fantastic teacher and director. Thanks again!


Great thanks to Kristin for really helping me
Along in the process. The support and
Criticisms have been so valuable. Thanks for the
Encouragement, and I look forward to
another session.


Huge THANKS to Leslie Bailey for an awesome coaching session!!!
I learned so much insightful, practical info. that really filled a gap for me.
She’s also a pleasure to work with.
Many Thanks,


Hey Kristen,
I just wanted to drop you a note and say thank you for your wonderful coaching going into next
week's demo session. You have created an environment in which I have been able to take
chances and grow. Your creativity and skill, not only as a coach but as a working VO pro, are
an inspiration to me going forward. Your candor coupled with your ability to collaborate with
whatever I bring to the table and make it pretty (or as important, 86 it as the case may be) has
bolstered a growing realistic confidence in myself, not to mention my complete confidence and
trust in you. I know you'll always keep it real, honest and true. While I’m new to the world of
voice over, I’m not new to the professional acting/show biz world. I know how valuable your
skills are to actors just getting started and pros who wish to grow. I am so looking forward to
next week! That totally beats "what the hell am I doing?"


Thank you so much for imparting your expertise today and also for sending these notes so quickly!

I really enjoyed my first session: I so appreciate the opportunity to identify the weaker areas and your notes will be such a helpful resource from which to practice and, hopefully, improve!

With very warm wishes and many thanks again,


Just wanted to post some of my notes as well. My coaching session was with Johnny Heller. Frankly, after I learned he was up for an audie and we had to reschedule a few times I was worried about how much time he would have for coaching someone like me of little renown.

Totally unjustified. He was GREAT! In fact, he has completely turned my style around and I feel hopeful about my audiobook narration for the first time in a long time. He was honest and went out of his way to make me feel comfortable.

Big, big thanks!


Hi Edge,

Thanks for the notes! They, along with the notes I wrote on my train ride home, are definitely helpful!

I had a great time training with Danielle yesterday! She's a warm person, and I was very comfortable with her right from the start. Her tips and insights were incredibly helpful ~ seemingly little changes really made a big difference that I could hear right away! I couldn't believe how quickly the hour went, and I walked away with a lot more information and things I will definitely be focusing on more during practice and future reads.

Thanks so very much again! I am so looking forward to future private coaching sessions!


Hi Linda,

I just wanted to thank you for today's session. Never having thought what an impact a one hour lesson could have, I left with an incredible boost in confidence about my future in VO. There really is something to relaxing and trusting in your coach.


recently had coaching sessions with David Goldberg and Linda Jones. I also want to add that both of these instructors are great teachers. They are encouraging, knowledgeable and insightful and, as a result, they are able to pass along their knowledge with tips that are tailored to what was needed to improve my performance. I valued the time I was able to have with both of them and I look forward to further sessions!


I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Kara! What a great session we had . She was so very helpful and a great teacher. Can I schedule another session with her?

Hi Linda,

I really enjoyed my first session: I so appreciate the opportunity to identify the weaker areas and your notes will be such a helpful resource from which to practice and, hopefully, improve!


Carol……Thanks so much for your terrific help and coaching today!
I really enjoyed our time and learned a lot from you.


Hi David,

Thank you so much for your coaching today!
I learned so many helpful things from you. You brought clarity to some of my floundering.
I enjoyed and appreciated how you teach.
I'll be practicing more productively now.

Looking forward to our next session,

Cheryl C.


I attended the Technique Spotlight/Audition Ringer on Wed, May 27, 2015 coached by Kristen. This is my second class with her. She does a excellent job coaching, guiding students, and is very professional. Also she has a very pleasant sounding voice that makes the 3 hours go by quickly.

I just wanted to leave a compliment! Thank you, Edge Studio, and thank Kristen for me.


Hi David,As always, you have clearly and specifically told me where I am; what I need to do to go forward; and very specific ways to move forward. Thank You! I am honored and blessed to be working with a teacher like you.



Thank you so much for our last teaching session. I enjoyed it, but more than that I learned a ton. I will be working on practicing my before moments and after moments, and selecting the right tone for the different beats in the copy. I'll also be doing a bit more reading from the books you suggested, and listening, listening, listening to the voice overs in the world around me.

I really felt like you spoke to me at my level of knowledge and intelligence, and that you taught me several new tools that I can use when I'm stuck or uncertain how to proceed. I left our session feeling like the hour we spent was extremely valuable to me. I also left with a new fire and renewed enthusiasm. I hope to work with you again very soon.

Congratulations, again, on your Florida commercial, and I hope that Gatsby was really fun!

Jodi B.

Thank you for the notes. Danielle was fantastic to work with and her instruction was extremely helpful. I would love to work with her again as I move towards my demo.

Also, please pass along my thanks to her for being flexible in scheduling the session on a Saturday.


Hi Kendra,
I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that I had a great coaching session with Michael. He gave me exactly what I needed. He offered a wealth of invaluable insight and motivation. His feedback was honest, constructive, professional, and completely without judgement. And to top it off, he was loads of fun too! I'll definitely be coaching with Michael again!


Thank you so much . Ariana loved her session with Ms. Romano and is very excited and looking forward to her next session with her.

Hila M

It was a pleasure participating in this coaching session. I learned a tremendous amount during this session. Thank you for this feedback.


Hello Danielle,

It was wonderful to finally meet and work with you in the studio.
Just wanted to thank you for yesterday's session, I appreciate your support and encouragement.
Looking forward to integrating your notes into my practice.

Have a lovely weekend (and a very good latte'),
