Student Testimonials


This class reinforces the essential tools for a voiceover artist (how to effectively read copy, project mood, and develop a natural tone.) and helped cater them to our respective personalities/styles. It develops PROFESSIONAL voiceover best practices from a performance and business standpoint. However, the one thing that I can’t stress enough (that may go unnoticed) is that this class develops your public speaking skills by making you command your natural tone/voice. What you learn here extends FAR beyond the booth!

Brett S.

I learned that I have more to learn and I enjoyed every minute of it!

Tom L.

E & D’s VO Duo classes are fun and super educational. It’s great to have so much real world knowledge in the room. 

Mark G

Eileen and Diana really tell you like it is, and at the same time make you feel safe enough to fail and figure out commercial copy. I learned so much from them and I highly recommend the class!

Amanda
Diana and Eileen are FANTASTIC teachers. They know the industry, know what they are looking for and help guide you there. It was small, intimate. Lots of hands on critique. I love the critiques.
Rick

I was able to dicover a few fears lurking, even after decades in the business, and work with them in a playful way. Diana and Eileen are a rock solid, dynamic duo with an impressive range of experience! GET IN HERE!

Kirsten

I liked that we got very good, honest feedback from two professionals in the field. I also like that it was in a professional studio with an audio engineer and that they encouraged us to do homework outside of class.

Caitlin

Working with Diana and Eileen was excellent. They have a gigantic wealth of knowledge on VO and that enabled them to really articulate what an actor needs to become bookable!

Keith

The 101 class was me much more comfortable with getting started in the VO world. I’m looking forward to 102!

Mark

The 101 voiceover intensive is an excellent introduction to the business. It’s an open, honest, and safe place to learn and receive knowledgeable instruction and critical feedback in crafting your art.

Sarah

I feel like I am really improving each week while building valuable relationships in the VO community. I liked being able to talk about my process and feeling like their notes were really tailored to me. Also, I LOVED having homework each week. It kept VO on my mind and as a priority.

Katy

Eileen and Diana are great teachers! It’s nice to have both of their unique input. They create a very positive and encouraging, yet informative, environment. Wonderful experience!

Megan

Small size classes! Really a treat to get to work in such a small group. Learned from others as well as from working myself which I think is harder when the class is bigger.

Nathalie

Simply put, I came to learn about myself and how to read copy. I did both.

Tom

I just wanted to thank you both for your wonderful intermediate voiceover class! I learned a lot. Also, remember that radio commercial I just got put on hold for? Well, I booked it! Thanks again for all of your help!

Caitlin

Since taking VO Duo’s Intermediate class, I have been called in twice to audition at Lotas Productions! If you’re just starting out or need to brush up on your technique, Eileen and Diana will cater class to your needs and commit to your individual growth. Many thanks to these amazing gals for their direction and support!! 

Katy

Thank you both so much! Since taking the December class, I”ve booked two cable tv spots with a technique I discovered in your class learning – how to tweak my read!!! You guys rock!
