— Bubba Murray

"I took this class for work and learned so much about not only voiceover but myself.  I’m definitely coming back to take the Intermediate course for personal gain.  He (Norm Boucher, Instructor – Beginning Voiceover) had the perfect blend of constructive, yet caring feedback.  Norm encouraged us to try new things and take risks when we could.  He said, “Don’t let perfection get in the way of excellence.”  I have nothing but glowing things to say about Norm.  He made us all feel comfortable while still giving us real feedback.  I learned a ton in just eight weeks."

— Kristin Samuelson

"Dave (Dave Leffel, Instructor - Beginning Voiceover) was great! He gave great feedback and provided a learning environment that was not intimidating at all!"

— Beginning Voiceover Student

"Our instructor (Norm Boucher, Instructor- Beginning Voiceover) was almost instantly adapting to all of our levels and needs as we took turns reading. He not only had a keen sense of everyone’s personality traits and was able to help everyone at any of their individual levels. As a green beginner, I was so nervous starting this class. Thanks to the great staff and instructor I was not only comfortable to take risks by my second class, but by the end of the 8 weeks I’m so sad it’s over! I feel this class was well thought out. This class had a plan, a goal. A focus and yet felt spontaneous at the same time."

— Naomi Higa

"Norm’s (Norm Boucher, Instructor - Beginning Voiceover) energy is contagious; he gets you just as excited about voiceover as he is. He is super informative and gives very constructive criticism."

— Amy Stricker

"Dave (Dave Leffel, Instructor - Beginning Voiceover) was very clear on what we needed to do in a positive, but not 'blowing sunshine up your skirt' fashion. He was great."

— Mike Petranech
