FRESH FROM THE STUDIO
"Coaching with Anne gave me confidence and tangible tools to use for voicing eLearning. Like any truly great coach, she pushes her students to be their very best with specific critique and building blocks to remedy those areas that need improvement. If you're looking for a coach to simply give you praise and take your money, you're in the wrong place. But if you're looking for a coach who will stretch your abilities, help you find your authentic voice and you're willing to put the work in, Anne is for you. Anne is a master at not only coaching, but in writing copy and crafting a demo to fit your voiceprint in the current market. Coaching and demo production with Anne is 100% worth your investment. I am absolutely thrilled with the end result, and fully intend to continue coaching with Anne!"
"Anne was invaluable in helping get my performances to the next level. Her coaching allowed me to understand the subtle nuances in inflection and pacing required to create emphasis and sound more natural, sound more... me. Thanks to Anne's guidance, I now have a demo I'm proud of."
"Anne has helped me to find 'my' voice, and given me the confidence and tools to pursue my passion in Narration! Anne goes above and beyond to recognize and strengthen a student's talents - offering targeted practice copy to hone skills, introduce different styles, identify areas to improve or build upon all while offering tips, recommendations & experienced guidance. This helped me discover what I have to offer as a voice artist including the marketable characteristics that I will be able to continue to strengthen. If you are looking for a skilled voice over coach who will challenge you as an artist (whether you are new or experienced), offer a variety of copy styles (based on your course - in my case Corporate Narration), ability to recognize the personal voice characteristics that set you apart, and push you beyond your self-imposed limits to truly be the best you can be all while building your confidence ultimately helping you to do your best work and breeze through those directed sessions ;-) - then Anne is the coach you are looking for! Additionally, Anne is extremely professional, efficient, and organized - using current online tech for scheduling, payment, homework, etc. - Anne is the complete package ;-) Anne is also fun to work with! She not only has the ability to offer constructive criticism (when needed), but also sincere excitement when those breakthroughs emerge ;-) I will definitely continue to work with Anne! ;-)"
"Anne has found a magic combination of being fun and encouraging while still never letting her students settle for anything but the very best. My demo is fantastic, and the coaching she gave me was incredibly informative and rewarding! My only regret is that I didn't start working with her earlier in my voiceover development journey. In short, she's the best!!!"
"Anne Ganguzza is worth every penny and more! I cannot begin to adequately surmise how much of a supportive and legitimate coach she is! She genuinely wants her students to succeed and bends over backwards for them, at the same time, as keeping them accountable and working with them until they're truly ready for a demo. Anne supported me, encouraged me, and pushed me even when it seemed like I would never succeed. I am so grateful to her for her patience, hard work and amazing demo! Thank you so much Anne and John, for an amazing demo! (Such great teamwork!) Anne, I feel like I will never be able to adequately repay you for what you have done for me! 🤓👍"
"I’ve now worked with Anne on two demos, and have loved both experiences. For my second demo, we found some unique, fun spots that we were able to really personalize— which makes me love the final product even more. The demo came out amazing. Anne’s coaching and direction really helped bring out one of the best performances I’ve ever given. I also really appreciated that she spent extra time making sure I understood how slightly different intonations affected the delivery and sound of a spot. When working with her, you can feel how genuinely she wants to see you succeed and how much she’s rooting for you to do your best work. I highly recommend working with Anne, and would absolutely work with her again."
"Working with Anne is awesome! She knows just how to push me out of my ruts and comfort zones to constantly improve. I love that she doesn't let me get by with "good enough" but always nudges me along to "great." Specifically - what is great for me and my voice - so I sound authentic and my personality gets a chance to shine through. Thank you so much Anne, for your belief in me and support along the journey!"
"I had an amazing journey coaching with Anne! When I decided to take voice acting seriously, I did what one must do to learn the skills to compete in this industry - I found a great coach! Not just a working voice actor, but someone who knows the industry and the value of educating and teaching, specifically for the genre I was interested in. After consulting with Anne, we decided that a Corporate Narration Demo program would be a great first step. Anne's lessons are detailed, thorough, and informative. She always assigns practice scripts to work on between lessons, which kept me immersed in the process and was invaluable! The work wasn't easy, but learning a new skill set never is! Was it worth it? Absolutely. And rewarding! I now have a fantastic, professional demo that we are both proud of! Without Anne's guidance and support, getting from where I began to where I am now wouldn't have happened. I am so grateful I found Anne when I took my leap of faith to pursue the coaching needed to make my demo. Thanks for everything, Anne!"
"I'm so grateful I started my VO journey with Anne! We began eLearning coaching, and she was direct and patient with me as I learned brand new skills and an industry I have never before experienced. Anne kindly pushed me when I needed pushing and encouraged me when I got in my head. The results--a shiny new eLearning demo that highlights my personality as well as my range within the genre! Her attention to detail does not go unnoticed. I'm so thankful for her and her team, and look forward to working with her in the future."
"I did an online class with Anne about two years ago and was lucky enough to read for and be coached briefly by her. We ended up doing more than a dozen lessons as well as my new Corporate Narration demo together. As a longtime teacher myself, I recognize some students take longer to learn than others. My background as a radio air talent had left me with some really bad habits I needed to abandon. It took a while, but with her coaching, I was able to finally quit and allow me to develop a more conversational approach in my recordings. She's everything you would expect from an A-Team coach- as a long-term professional musician myself, she's got an incredibly musical ear and is able to teach and relate concepts that even I was able to understand. I can't recommend her too highly and I'm grateful for her patience, insight, and teaching pedagogy. She's simply the bomb, and she really knows her stuff!"
"Awesome! I just received and heard my E-Learning Demo. It sounds terrific and the road to get there was a pleasure. Anne provided clear and solid instruction throughout the coaching with very constructive feedback. I think the greatest pleasure of working with Anne is that she kept me on task and provided support with her ever-present smile in her voice. Thank you, Anne."
"Anne's demos are like potato chips. You can't have just one! My e-learning demo is my second with Anne, and I'm thrilled with the final product. I'm grateful for her encouragement, her solid teaching moments, her kindness and her sense of humor. Her production prowess and her attention to detail make her demos stand out from the crowd. Thank you, Anne, for being you and for my terrific demo!"
"From the very first consultation, Anne helped me to get what I needed and wanted out of my voice. My two clear goals were to get a more conversational read, and to add diversity, dynamics, and flexibility to my reads. Studying with Anne was certainly hard work, and I felt like I was back in college again. I had to really push myself and look at a lot of my techniques from a different angle. Did I meet my goals? I think this demo literally says it all! I’m SO thrilled with how smoothly my demo session went, how well she directed me, and how thoughtfully Anne curated each spot. I mean… it all sounds just like…ME. I sure do have a spring in my step now, because I sound GREAT. Thank you Anne, this is over and above what I imagined! "
"Anne Ganguzza is a force of nature with an infectious energy. She is so very knowledgeable about her craft. A bit of a taskmaster she pushes you to the point where you know you have participated in some serious work. For this is a process. Anne expects you to be totally committed to the work because she is totally committed to it. What starts as a teacher student - relationship gradually converts itself into a collaboration. And the results are astounding. "
"Ask me what I think of Anne Ganguzza. Go ahead, ask me... I'm so glad you asked.
Anne has proven to be a wonderful voice coach and so much more. I spent many years in radio before deciding to try to enter the world of corporate voice-over. I learned I had many thoroughly ingrained “bad habits” in moving from radio to corporate voice – habits that Anne helped me overcome. Knowing that I was a musician as well as a “radio guy,” she used terms that were easily understandable to me – phrases like “feel the melody” and “catch the rhythm” in the scripts. And was she ever patient with me. I had to take some forced hiatuses from my training – breaks that, in a couple of cases, lasted for months at a time. She was so understanding, helping me resume right where I left off with reminders that put me right back on track. Then, once the training was over, she put together a fabulous demo for me and pointed me in a direction designed to help me get work and build my brand and my business.
So, if you ask me what I think of Anne Ganguzza, I will tell you that – in my opinion – she is the best voice coach out there for those of you looking to expand your talent. Not only that, she is a wonderful human being and a friend. You can't do any better than Anne for your voice coach..."
"Well, what else can I say besides -" BAM❣ Nailed it!!!! " 🙌💪🙌 🤣
Anne Ganguzza and John Chominsky, working with the two of you in studio is pure joy, and the end product - this shiny new eLearning demo of mine - still has me on cloud nine this morning. Who knew eLearning could be this much fun??? Thanks for the late-night reveal. I can't wait to share it with the world💞 Especially since the corporate narration demo you produced for me recently has earned me three bookings directly off the demo in the past month. Thank you. You two rock! I can't wait to do it again soon🤟"
"For my first professionally produced demo I hired Anne. I worked extremely hard through the homework and coaching. Anne was tough but supportive. When my demo was completed I was blown away by where Anne was able to get my voice! If you want to see what you're capable of and willing to put in the work I highly recommend Anne to get you where you want to be!"
"Anne had a unique way of connecting with me exactly where I was in my VO career to help me elevate to the next level. My goal was to create a Corporate Narration demo that showed range and versatility. Wow! Anne really delivered! As a coach, she worked with me to find my performance strengths and capitalize on them, and to identify my weaknesses to overcome them. As we worked together, she learned about me as a voice actor and as a person, and used that knowledge to craft scripts that I could really connect with. I am over the moon thrilled with the end result and cannot wait to showcase this new demo in my marketing efforts. Thank you, Anne!"
"Working with Anne was truly an amazing learning experience. Within the first lesson of audio production, delivery styles and techniques, I was able to put it right in my auditions and book. Anne really brings out your best and into the mic. I was able to understand my "brand" and how to use it to my best advantage. She coaches inflections, nailing the read, and opening your perception to analyzing the script. And OH YES, she gives homework, and it is so informative. I plan to continue my Commercial coaching with Anne because.......she simply rocks!"
"Being coached by Anne is what I needed to finally gain true confidence to self-direct myself when recording for Corporate eLearning projects. I appreciated her style of constructive feedback, I enjoyed learning from her, and I'm grateful for how she helped me sort through my challenges. Even though there were times I felt defeated during our sessions (due to my ADHD brain, I'm my worst critic and can get impatient with myself), Anne understood me, was patient, and would pull me back up with encouragement and support. As for my demo, I love it! When I listen to it, I feel really proud with what we created together, behind the scenes and on recording day. I would definitely work with Anne again!❤️"
"Remember who you're talking to. Elevate the teaching moments. Speak with authority." My 10+ years in the medical field still didn't prepare me for the challenges of Medical Narration Voiceover. Translating the genuine medical experience from a real life moment to the voiceover booth AUTHENTICALLY is only possible by being taught by the very best there is and ANY amount of research done will tell you exactly who that person is. Anne Ganguzza. A person who's dedicated her life to arguably one of the most difficult genres of voiceover, Anne will tell you exactly what you need to hear. Why go out and spend years of your life trying to learn what the already established masters have learned already? If voiceover of any kind is really what you see yourself doing in this lifetime, Anne Ganguzza is the teacher you're looking for."
"Conversational and Authoritative. Easy, right? Medical Narration is a very specialized genre. It is an art. It is a real challenge. As a voice actor and as an actively licensed RN, I knew this was a space where I wanted to learn and grow. To emerge as a “go-to talent”. That day will come. To be an expert, you must learn from an expert, and there is no one else I wanted to learn from than Anne Ganguzza! Anne is a coach and a demo producer. She is also an educator that will mentor you, challenge you, and cheer for you. She was as excited as I was for my demo day reveal. Lifelong learning is a real thing. Pursue your interests and passions. If Medical Narration is on your list, work with Anne and learn from the very best. Thank you, Anne from the bottom of my heart."
"I love everything about working with Anne! She's friendly and personable, and straightforward with her advice. She corrected some of my voice quirks and now I really understand more about my voice and how to use it. The coaching sessions were a treasure trove of training nuggets! Anne and John really brought out the best in my voice and taught me how to do the same. Thanks!"
"I loved working with Anne on my new Corporate Narration demo! Anne's teaching style was great, as it met me where I was, improving the areas where I needed it while reinforcing and strengthening areas where I was already doing well. I'm still hearing Anne in my head as I go through auditions! And when the demo was finished, I was like a kid with a brand new toy! It's the perfect cornerstone to my new marketing efforts!"
"Anne was amazing. She is so encouraging and supportive, and she knew just the right ways to bring out the best in me. I learned and grew tremendously through Anne’s coaching, and she and John went above and beyond to make sure my demo was perfect. I am overwhelmed with how it came out."
"I'm very excited about my Corporate Narration demo, which is an ideal fit for my brand! Anne did a great job throughout my training of analyzing my delivery, uncovering my ill-advised tendencies, and helping me to correct them. During my training with her, I was hired for VO contract work - largely because I was able to apply lessons learned during our sessions to make a strong impression during the interview process. I look forward to even better results because of the demo. Thanks, Anne!"
"I am thrilled with my demo beyond expectation! Anne is the perfect coach for me. Her focused feedback, encouragement, and commitment to getting the best from me are exactly what I need. I appreciate that she's channeled my efforts into the genres that best suit my natural, personal style and interests. To me that means she's identifying my brand and guiding me to marketability, not just churning out a cookie-cutter demo."
"Working with Anne was one of the most pleasant, informative, challenging and transformative processes I have been through as a voice actor. She is very meticulous, a great teacher and a fine human being. She cares about bringing out the best in you and works hard to find just the right scripts and tone for your particular voice. I am so proud of the finished demo and so happy to have her in my corner as a teacher and a friend. Thank you Anne, you are the best!"
"Working with Anne is amazing. She knows the industry and what is current, and gives you the tools to look and learn that as well. We worked on commercials of all types, not just to find out what I could do but also to see where I needed to improve. Her coaching gave me all sorts of tools to be able to take on copy that just flows and copy that seems a little...non conversational for a conversational read. She pushed me hard and taught me lots. And, even though I went in because "you gotta be able to do commercial copy, ugh" at the end I'm actually excited to do commercials and find the character and heart of the words and bring them to life. That was the journey and the end result was amazing - I love how she captured my range and my quirkiness and also my serious side and my inner mom. It was great working with Anne and I hope to work with her again in the future. She knows her stuff and is an excellent teacher and demo producer."
"OK, if you're perusing Anne's testimonials, then you've come across my face a few times... and here I am again. :-) I just finished up coaching with Anne and producing my Medical Narration Demo, and wow... just wow! This is the third demo I produced with Anne and John, and to be honest... I knew I would love it, but didn't think it would be my favorite of the three. Boy, was I wrong! Each demo I've recorded with Anne has been better than the last. Anne had me ready of the performance side, while John worked his studio magic to make the demo shine. I know there are a ton of coaches out there. And I know it's important to work with several of them to get different perspectives. But after my time coaching with Anne, I don't know how I could coach with anyone else. Now, time to put these demos to work and make some money! :-)"
"Anne was a driving force in my growth as a voice actor. As my coach, Anne guided me through lessons, helping me find and develop my signature vocal styles. I'm incredibly proud of the demo Anne and John produced as it highlights the skills I learned in class as well as my vocal range for commercial work. My thanks to Anne for being such a stellar mentor."
"I am an attorney by day and a voice actor in my dreams. Anne is responsible for helping me to transform this goal from aspiration to reality. Her expert guidance, patience, encouragement, and superlative direction deserve the credit for this demo. Anne’s incredible coaching taught me a lesson that is transcendent: confidence is the key to success for any artist. My demo under Anne’s stewardship reflects my journey in putting this critical lesson into practice."
"Nowadays, it seems every client wants the same thing. Believable. Authentic. Relatable. Conversational. But with so many ideas on what that entails, who can you trust to help you make sense of it all, and deliver reads that truly connect?
ANNE GANGUZZA, that’s who.
Working with Anne was an eye-opening experience. She helped me understand the musicality of the conversational read, and explained the role of pacing and pitch in a way no one had ever done before. Walking me through the process of breaking down scripts into relevant phrases, she challenged me to find the story — and to tell it, from the client’s perspective.
Some days it was difficult. Other times, frustrating. But as I began letting go of my overly cautious, polished and articulate reads, something magical happened. I started to sound, not like “the world’s best AI voice” (as another coach once described me), but actually like a REAL person.
The result? Well, you don’t need to tell you. Judge for yourself! Oh yeah, and give Anne a shout when you’re ready to get serious about your performance. Thanks, Anne...I love my new corporate demo!"
William Van Tassel
"Having Anne as my coach has taught me a lot of things. Not only (did we) record a killer demo, (which I love) but (she) also (taught me a lot) about the industry. Through this experience, I have tucked away a few little nuggets of wisdom from Anne and some hard-learned lessons. At one point when I was freaking out over a business situation, Anne was there (out of her own time, even) to connect me with someone who could relate. For that, I will be forever especially grateful."
"I really can't say enough about how great it is to work with Anne. I just finished recording my corporate demo, and I am so happy with the results. Anne won't have you produce a demo unless you're ready. So, I highly recommend purchasing one of the "+" packages (Corporate +, ELearning +, etc.). These include 10 coaching sessions and a professionally produced demo. The cost is well worth it to ensure you are truly ready to produce a demo, and you will save in the long run, compared to purchasing coaching sessions and the demo session individually. Working with Anne is a joy. Our coaching sessions were truly the highlight of my week. Anne brings humor, passion, and practicality to each session. You'll be demo ready before you know it if you follow her guidance. Make sure you set aside time each week to do your homework! :-) When it's time, recording your demo couldn't be any easier. You connect with Anne and John (Anne's engineer) from Atlantis Group through ipDTL. You won't find a friendlier, more genuine guy who will support you through the recording process just as much as Anne. Like Anne, he brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the session to make sure you sound your best. Recording my demo with Anne and John was exciting and FUN. You don't need to be nervous, and you'll be amazed at the results. Make sure you're sitting down when Anne plays your new demo for you because I guarantee you'll be blown away. You'll receive a full length demo with each spot seamlessly woven together, as well as individual files of each spot that you can use as samples for specific uses. I said in an earlier testimonial that the best use of your money is on coaching and a professional demo. It's so true. Working with Anne and John has been a most rewarding experience. Now it's time to put that demo to work to get some jobs! You can too, if you work with Anne. :-)"
"Wow! I am SO excited about my new demo! I absolutely love it. I can’t tell you what a confidence boost it is to not only have a professional, high quality demo- but to know I’ve been properly trained when it gets me work. I knew I needed a new demo and training but I didn’t realize how much it was holding me back mentally. I’m so glad I didn’t half-ass it by going with someone else. I feel so much more confident marketing and delivering! Working with you was a joy and I so appreciate your cheerleading and professionalism. Thanks so much Anne!"
"What to say about Anne G. that hasn’t already been said? She’s a phenomenal teacher, a supportive coach, and she’s tough! She pushed me out of my comfort zone and this is the result; a Demo I’m proud of and one that shows how far I’ve come. I love how she accentuated my teaching and reporting background but also let my personality shine through. I couldn’t be happier with my e-learning Demo. Thanks Anne, it was definitely worth the wait!!"
"If you are new to the industry, you may be tempted to spend a ton of money on gear and expensive toys. Don't. Save your money and spend it on coaching with Anne. A good coach is BY FAR the best way to spend your money as a newbie, and you won't find a better coach than Anne.
I purchased three of her demo packages - corporate, medical narration, and eLearning - and haven't looked back once. I am wrapping up over a year of coaching and producing demos with Anne and can't imagine what I'm going to do each week without our weekly sessions. They were so much fun, and I now feel prepared and confident in my ability to deliver quality work when booking jobs, all thanks to working with Anne.
Don't skip the coaching. And don't work with a bad coach who only wants your money. Work with Anne. You won't regret it.
"I have never worked with someone who delivered so much. Not only did Anne deliver a spectacular demo, but she was a great, supportive coach, and was fun to work with. Anne was always encouraging, and was able to point out exactly what I needed to shift to achieve truly great performances. I always felt like she was trying to help me. I learned so much so quickly with her, and really felt like I honed my talent. I shopped around a bit before deciding to work with Anne, and I feel like I got so much more value for my money with her. Most other people only did a demo, but Anne makes sure you know exactly what you’re doing so you can really deliver on your VOs. Her coaching with demo packages are excellent for pros who want a refresh, or for those new to the industry. When I listened to my final demo, I realized that I was now, officially, one of those super-professional VO talent that have kick-ass demos and can deliver kick-ass performances. Thank you Anne :-)"
"If you're here, reading these testimonials and listening to these demos trying to decide "Is training and demo production with Anne Ganguzza really worth it?" Then you don't know enough about Anne. That's like asking yourself "How much value would I really get out of working on my ball game with Phil Jackson?" Anne's own success is impressive enough, but the list of people who've trusted her with their training and their demo production is amazing. Top tier Voice Over Professionals are coming to Anne because she's worth it. I am so grateful for my time with Anne. Her training didn't just help me improve my ability and skillset, but helped me understand why and how I was improving. Understanding the subtext of a script, identifying the audience, what to emphasize and why, and how all those things go together. I've improved in all of that and more thanks to Anne, and you can definitely hear it in this fantastic demo. Thanks Anne!"
