The Edge Voiceover Training and Demo Program

What do you want to do in voiceover?

This program is tailored to your voice, schedule, location, interests, and goals.

 

What’s included in this program?

It’s all here… A dedicated team of veteran pro voice actors – who give back with a university style curriculum – to get you working.

  • Step 1 = Guidance
  • Step 2 = Training & Education: private voice coaching,  group classes,  business & rates guidance,  marketing guidance,  home studio step-by-step guidance,  script preparation
  • Step 3 = Demo recording
  • Step 4 = Launch!
  • Step 5 = Continuing education

Step 1 – Guidance

You’ll begin with a careful Guidance and Planning Session with your instructor. This will pave the way for a far more marketable voiceover demo and fruitful career down the road. This is an opportunity to discuss your goals and learn what options exist. It’s also an opportunity for you to read simulated audition scripts, so your coach can assess your vocal strengths. Ultimately you and your coach will pinpoint what genre(s) of voiceover make sense to train for, and you’ll discuss the steps to make it happen.

Voiceover is an amazingly diverse industry. There are different paths, lots of options, and decision points that let you tailor your career to your preferences.  So in your Guidance and Planning Session, we consider your spoken voice, your distinct goals, and your natural strengths … and together find a path that you feel good about.

Step 2 – Training & Education

Your choice: your entire curriculum can be in-person or Zoomed from your home.


You get 5 Private Voice Coaching Sessions for each demo you record.

Private voiceover training is the most focused way to develop your skills as a voice actor, and Edge Studio has the best coaches in the industry. We will match you with a coach who best fits your unique sound, career goals, and schedule. Your instructor will develop an individualized plan that helps you focus on skills to nurture your personal sound, strengthen your vocal technique, all working towards recording a demo.

To make sure that you are ready to record and that you put your best foot forward when it comes time to create your demo, we always require a minimum of 5 coaching sessions per demo, and your coach will always let you know whether they feel you will need additional training at the end of those 5 sessions.

Choose a program of 5, 10 or 15 coaching sessions.

  • 1 demo program = 5 sessions
  • 2 demo program = 10 sessions
  • 3 demo program = 15 sessions


And you get 8 Interactive Group Class Webinars.

Each class has Q&A time, and is taught by an instructor who works professionally in the industry and specializes in the class content. This helps you learn from their experience before launching your own voiceover career.

These group classes include:


And to supplement, you can utilize our Free Online Training Resources.

These include our Script Library, Voiceover Script Reading Contest, Feedback Forum, Blog Articles, and more – all to further prepare and assist you in working professionally in this field.

Step 3 – Demo Portfolio Production

The creation of your demo (or demos) is the next big step in your overall voiceover journey. Once you and your coach have determined that you will be able to record a professional-quality demo, you can begin this very fun step!

Each demo has 5 steps:

Step 1 = Demo Script Preparation Session: This is an additional hour-long session to work on your scripts with your coach. Think of this time as a final dress rehearsal.  You will review and practice the scripts that have been set aside for your demo. You and your coach can make any last minute changes and do some more training on them.

Step 2 = Demo Recording Session: A week or more later, it’s time to record! We schedule 90-minutes for this session. Even though it’s only a minute or two of content, we want lots of extra time for voice-direction, nerves (if you have them), and whatever comes along. We never want to rush this session. Your coach will direct you during your recording session, and always record multiple takes of each script.

You can select where you record your demo(s):

  • You’re welcome to record in-person at our New York City studios or at our partner studio in Los Angeles. Recording in these locations is included in the cost of the program.
  • Or you can record at an approved alternate studio anywhere in the world and your coach will direct you via Zoom, Source Connect, or ipDTL. We can help you find a quality studio. You will be responsible for covering their cost.
  • Or you can record at your own home studio. In this case, we will first provide a free “quality check” to ensure your sound quality is professional quality. If it’s not, we’ll make some recommendations. After all, you’ll use your studio to record your professional voiceover work.

Step 3 = Demo Mix: After recording, our team of world-class engineers and even David Goldberg himself will work on your demo behind the scenes, editing, processing, sequencing, mixing, and mastering your demo – creating a professional voiceover demo that’s industry standard and broadcast quality.

Step 4 = Demo Mix Revisions:  Your demo will then be emailed to you for your review, and you and our Education Team will discuss any comments you may have. There are never additional fees for one round of reasonable revisions. We want you to feel comfortable and happy with your demo.

Step 5 = Demo Mastering:  This final step is like icing on the cake; not everyone does it (probably because they don’t know how, or because they don’t want to spend so much extra time) – but we always do this. People know our work in the industry, so we want you – and us – to sound good.

Step 4 – Launch!

Excited to go off and work?  You should be.  But we’re not turning our backs … Quite the contrary; We’re standing by because you may have questions. Probably will, in fact.  We want you to use all the tools from your Edge Studio training program to start your voiceover career.

And plenty of Free Working Online Resources, such as our Non-Union Ratecard and Words-to-Time Calculator get you operating in a professional manner.

Step 5 – Continuing Education
