What people have to say...
Steve brings a personal touch to teaching the art of the VoiceOver that you don't get from every teacher....he has given me the confidence to go out there, audition, take chances, and book work. Steve will always be my VoiceOver mentor."
...now that I know him, Steve has given new meaning to my perception of a 'working actor.' In his case, it means someone who combines talent, and professionalism to create a package that is an asset to anyone who works with him."
~Art Mcfarland, Broadcast Jouralist
after being out of the business for several years, I was glad I was able to take private voice-over sessions from steve before my first vo audition since my return...he was able to clarify the different styles being used today...the preparation of choosing material and Steve's direction on the reading for each piece made the actual demo recording very comfortable."
I have had the pleasure of working with Steve Friedman for approximately one year, as a voiceover student. I can say with the highest degree of certainty that the training I received under him was top rate. Steve sees you through the entire process, choosing copy, to recording your demo. He will also guide you through equipment choices when setting up your own studio at home. His body of work is most impressive, and he disseminates his expertise to his students very clearly, yet does so in a way that encourages the student to show off his or her individuality and range in their own work. He has the most pleasant disposition, and I found Steve nothing less than a complete joy to work with. He is a consummate teacher, coach, director, and professional, and it is my pleasure to recommend Steve Friedman and his services most enthusiastically."
As a beginner, Steve gave me confidence to get into the voiceover world. He has such great insight about the business and what it takes. I feel comfortable and knowledgeable to begin this journey."
