Testimonials & Success Stories

Kristen Thorne did a great job with the Technique Spotlight and Audition Ringer last night. If you have an opportunity to share any feedback with her, she was consistently encouraging while providing helpful next steps. The copy she used for the ringer was also easy to read on screen. That is not always the case, but she cut and pasted the copy onto a slide and put it in presentation mode. The other things I found useful were the audio examples she provided. When I worked with David in Chicago what resonated most was the importance of ear training. Kristen echoed that lesson last night by providing us with exemplars. It's one thing to talk about it and another thing to hear it.

Good Afternoon,

I just want to thank you for the above mentioned class. Micheal Ingram & Majorie Kouns have been great. Thank you for your wisdom, insight & encouragement. Now, practice, practice, practice...again, THANK YOU!

I thought Naz did a great job with warm-up techniques and suggestions. She was also very engaging and helpful in her comments during the script readings by the participants.

A very useful webinar.


Hi Edge Studio Team,

Thank you for sending this worksheet…. and thank you for all the hard work you put into this great "VO University". Debbie's class was great (as always)!
I am learning so much from all the instructors and coaches…..each and every one is of such high calibre.
Thanks for your part in making it all happen!

Enjoying the Process,


I really enjoyed this class and Noelle was Awesome as usual! She
really took the time to treat everyone as an individual, and when I
was having technical difficulties, she read off the Tech phone number
and that was very helpful! I was bummed that I could not read on the
audition ringer because of my iphone, nobody could hear me. I learned
a lot in the techniques class, and also learned a tremendous amount in
the audition ringer just by listening to everyone else.

I am loving and enjoying all of these classes, feeling very blessed!!



Thanks for another great webinar on Tuesday! I really do love your view on things, and it shows just how much thought you put into everything ~ from the webinars themselves to the reflecting and comments you give during the audition ringers. So, thank you so much for all of that!


Hello, Training Gurus!

I have to write and gush about the recent Saturday technique classes with Scott Burns and Deb Munro. Just wonderful! They both taught a ton of great material in a short period of time. Both, too, were very generous with their coaching time, taking care with every student even though the classes were very full. I was writing notes furiously the entire time.

Scott introduced many interesting techniques and tips--it seemed like a new one for every student. I've been feeling frustrated and stuck about how to gain a more natural sound, and now I'm excited to get to the mic. And Deb explained all her thoughts with great clarity as she coached, taking the listeners along on the journey. I know what she taught will greatly improve my ability to both self-coach and give better feedback on the feedback forum. Not to mention giving some great editing and marketing tips just in her asides.

I'm definitely feeling the Edge Studio love!


Marjorie manages to impart in an easy but fun manner, lots of real, pertinent and "yummy" information in short order. Her critiques are extremely useful and right on the mark.
It must be very difficult to give presentation and critiques which won't derail ambitions but encourage people to change for the better. Marjorie does this very well.


Hello Kendra,
Kudo's to Marjorie Kouns. The last three classes she has taught have
really been "HOT". I've gathered so much information and techniqes
since I began studing at Edge, she is helping to put it all into a
frame work I can manage. The last class on Sept. 7 about Long Form
Narration, that was good. I've heard it over and over again about the
1st, 2nd and 3rd person point of view and now I understand how those
various points of view must be read with a different emphaiss becasue
the narrator is literally speaking from that point of view. Ms.
Kouns gave us some written homework which I just completed this
morning and I clearly see in my writing the various points of view I
used. So I will record this and hear how it sounds. Tell Ms. Kouns,
thank you so very much.


Dear Edge Studio,

I've always enjoyed all the unique webinars that you offer, but last week's Technique Spotlight by Noelle was incredible!!

Not only was the 3 hours very clear, organized and effective, I feel like I learned a lot from the 3 hours.

Although I didn't get a call back from her, I listened in for the rest of the session what she would say to other listeners and that really helped me shape something I've never been able to do before.

I live in LA and she was my first contact with Edge (being that she was the instructor to the assessment course), I feel very fortunate to have her locally and cannot wait to do a one-on-one session with her!

Thank you Noelle and I hope to book a coaching session with you soon!!


Tuesday night's class with Kristen Thorne (Pacing and Phrasing) was also a winner. I love her energy, and the way she encouraged us to stretch as we read the copy. With so many wonderful coaches, it's going to be hard to choose who I will work with 1 on 1. I'll call you about that next week. It's time to get on with it.


I was wondering if you could forward this thank you to Noelle for me. She ran a great class today. It really opened my eyes to the world of telephony! I really appreciate her advice and guidance . It was fun to learn that another "Jersey girl" is a pro at this whole voiceover career.

The course was great. Naz is a very detailed and patient instructor. I learned so much in her classes.

Thank you for a great experience.


I, once again, would like to say how much I am enjoying the Tech Spotlights and Audition Ringers with Marjorie Kouns. The 'Marjorie Marathon' has been incredibly helpful! She is just overflowing with such pertinent information, and listening to her feedback for myself and all the participants in the Audition Ringer classes really helps one focus on all the details of reading script. Great lessons!


Hi Randye,

I just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful webinar this past Wednesday!

Deciphering and marking copy have been two of my biggest concerns, and your explanations and examples were incredibly helpful. I will be borrowing from your system of marking copy, if you don't mind terribly!

The audition ringer was also a lot of fun, and it was helpful to hear how different each copy can be read and interpreted ~ even by the same person.

So, thank you again! I love your brilliant, helpful and encouraging coaching style!



Please tell Noelle I appreciated her help in this Technique Spotlight/Audition Ringer. She did a great job of driving home the message that we need to deliver our read to a specific person. Isn't it ironic that we are trying to reach everyone listening to our read, but we won't reach anyone unless we are speaking to one person? Well done Noelle!

Noelle has this nice blend of praise/feedback when she coaches. I always feel she is pulling for me and at the same time she is willing to give honest and direct feedback. I truly appreciate that I am not being patronized.


Happy Weekend, Training Gurus!

I just had to write and gush about how fabulous Randye Kaye's Saturday classes were, today. Great material, and she took so much time giving each student detailed feedback--that was helpful to everyone--during the Audition Ringer. I didn't participate in that section because I hadn't officially signed up and didn't want to take away the time from others, but, boy, did I learn a ton. I could tell the whole class was energized by it, too.


Just wanted to let you know that Nazia is an amazing teacher! Her spotlight was FULL of tricks and tips, and her "real-life" experiences are so helpful. Not a minute of the hour was wasted. I was scribbling furiously the whole time; her words are really industry gold.

The ringer was equally good. Her directions are concise, she's clear about the adjustments she wants us to make, and she has good reasons why she asks us to make them. She is such a gem and I feel lucky to work with her! It's so obvious why she's at the top of her game.

Thanks for the opportunity to work with her!


Hi Rob,
Wonderful class today. Thanks for the helpful tips. I really learned a lot in today's class. I didn't stay on for the Ringer portion because "characters" is not one of the areas that I plan to work on for awhile. I didn't want to take up valuable class time that someone else already working on this genre could use.

Thanks again, for a fun and informative class.


Thanks to Danielle for a terrifically helpful class!
These notes are a wonderful bonus.


Hi Edge Studio Staff,

I just wanted to send in my feedback on last night's Tech Spotlight with Naz. She did an EXCELLENT job. You can tell ... I did not even wait for your electronic feedback reminder. Naz really explained to us what it means to be Committed to the copy and she spent invaluable time with each and every participant on the call. Amazing. She was totally invested in us, and it made it sooooo easy to get totally invested in what we were doing and give everything we had. I learned so much on this call and have a few more handy tools in my technique kit. Slowly. Slowly.

Please give her a BIG THANK YOU. She rocks!!!


I must share with you that I was in Randye Kaye's class today and must pass along that I thought she did a terrific job teaching on the subject of Reading or Communicating: First Clues are in the Copy.

She really knows her craft and knows how to convey the message clearly to the student. She did this by using many of the scripts in the library, giving her own vocal examples and giving the students to practice with four different scripts. Her coaching techniques were straightforward and helpful She really was very thorough with the information she gave to us today.

I truly enjoyed her class. Please pass this along to Ms. Kaye so she knows what a nice impact she had on me.


This morning I realized that I'm still reeling from the Creative Copy Analysis class with Kristen Thorne two nights ago. I have to tell you that class was just wonderful! Kristen has such a kind and uplifting spirit that she poured all over us Monday night. Best class so far. This was the first time I really felt like I got "out of my head" for script analysis. It seemed so much more intuitive and was just what I needed. Thank You!



Thank you.
Thank you.
Thank you.

Outstanding presentation!

What you gave us should be part of the regular curriculum. If this is all I learned from Edge, I got my money's worth.

I have tears in my eyes.

I'm so grateful to you for all you give on our technique spotlight classes.

I'm going to keep the notes from today's class close at hand in my home studio and re-read them often. I now have a clear VO manifesto. What you shared has given me clarity of purpose... ...on many dimensions.

Big huge hug from Miami.

Thank you, Marjorie!!! You reminded why I'm doing this and all I have to give.

With gratitude and love...

Shannon C.

Another fantastic Edge Studio Technique Spotlight training. Thank you, Carol Monda!


Just a quick email to say I enjoyed this webinar and the feedback because variety is something I really need to work on. I'm going to do my best to put what you recommended into my practice, Noelle. Thanks so much!



I just finished your Authentic Voice session and wanted to thank you for a very informative, and helpful, class. It was certainly one of the best I've taken so far. And I do appreciate your lack of "sugar-coating!" When I'm at the the Private Training stage you'll be hearing from me again.

I attended the Vocal Warmup Spotlight/Ringer Session the other night with Naz.

I enjoyed working with someone who had more of an acting orientation than myself. She pushed us but was friendly at the same time. She showed me how to approach commercial work with an actor’s mindset, and pushed me too bring my own personality to the script. She suggested to another student to take an improv class which is something I think I could also benefit from and will look into. I look forward ro working with her more in the future.

Joel Scott

I really enjoyed the Tech and Audition class with Rob Schuller 2 weeks ago. He is obviously quite talented, it was fun listening to everyone work with different voices, and he brought in a whole new set of helpful tips to keep in mind.

Last Saturday's Tech and Audition class with Marjorie was brilliant! Her honesty and bravery in being so open was very inspiring, and her suggestions and tips can be used and helpful in all aspects of life. Thank you and Bravo, Marjorie!!! *:) happy


Fantastic VO class with Carol Monda! Amazing teacher! Anyone coming to #VO from a serious acting background NEEDS to take a class w/ Carol. She bridges both worlds expertly!
