Anne Ganguzza . Now there’s a name that has permeated the voice-over industry and for good reason. I came to Anne with a desire to provide voice over in corporate narration. Under her direction and coaching, Anne showed me there is more to voice-over than just getting it right as a voice. There is a need for sensitivity, research and a sense of what you can bring to the table to help the client, which is more than just offering yourself as a voice-over talent. Having Anne as my coach has been one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences in voice over. And the Demo! Well its hard to put it into words but the word “fantastic” comes to mind. Her expert knowledge of how to take your rehearsal recording and engineer that into the final product (i.e. the Demo) is excellent. I’ll be back for more of what she offers.
If anybody can make me sound awesome... it's you. And, I will tell you this. Whether consciously or not, I'm sure I have been using what you taught me. In the last month I've won more auditions, and am so freakin' busy it's almost like work...(but not really work work)... you know what I mean!
I spent years relying on the crutch of having a nice voice. But Anne let me know quickly that wasn’t going to cut it anymore. Anne’s superpower is her ability to teach how to listen. She taught me how to listen for the story of every script, how to listen for the essence of the text, how to listen to myself to find my authenticity. Anne will never settle for a moment of mediocrity, and always held me to the highest standards. While we were creating my corporate narration demo, she was meticulous with every detail and it shows. I now have a new level of honesty and truth in all the work that I do, no matter what genre it is. Thank you Anne!
Thank you both SO much for today’s (demo) session. It was quite literally a dream come true, to come out of the closet...and walk into a professional studio. Unreal. This step is huge for me, and I’m so glad that two special people in my life were there with me. I wouldn’t have wanted to have been with anyone else for my first demo. I’m in a cloud right now. Can’t believe it all really just took place. Thank you for your patience, direction and expertise. Let’s do it again!! Hugs and gratitude to you both!
Hi, Anne!! Just wanted to share a little: Recorded a gig for S&P Global yesterday. Producer told me that the client LOVED the Lexus spot on our demo. Have a great weekend!! ❤️
I worked with Anne to make my commercial demo and she brought out sounds that felt very natural for me, but I had never considered. One of my favorite spots on the demo was an inspirational commercial for Arrowhead. Just today, I booked a commercial based solely on that spot on my demo, no custom audition needed! Thank you for helping me discover that sound!
Hi, just wanted to let you know I scored a BIG corporate gig today straight off my demo, no audition. ????
I have been sick all week with a Sinus infection and this spray has been a life saver ! It really helps heals my sore throat. Works right away. Thanks Anne!!!!
The time and detail in the direction were fantastic…The VO workout was awesome! It’s been hit and miss in most of my past workshops/courses so I’m super excited for future VO Peeps events and especially our coaching.
Super informative, thought-provoking and entertaining with great group interaction…Just came home so excited about the possibilities ahead after that sensational session you gave today. Super informative, thought-provoking and entertaining with great group interaction. You have such great energy it was a real inspiration to hear you. And the ideas!… So many terrific suggestions for smart, savvy branding and marketing initiatives to pursue. I can hardly wait to put them into action! Just what I needed and expect from the Edge training program. A big thank you.
Working with Anne on medical narration coaching and demo production was a match made in heaven. Anne’s years of experience voicing medical narration added greatly to my understanding of the language as a Pharmacist. We worked as a team the whole way and her enthusiasm for the business and task at hand made the whole process delightful. The finale of Anne providing live demo direction was over the top wonderful!!
My phenomenal voice coach Anne Ganguzza just called me to present me with my AMAZING Commercial demo. There really aren’t words right now. I am blown away! Thank you Anne, for guiding through the most fun, unreal ride to and through this demo. I worked for close to a year before being ready to record. Obviously, I worked one-on-one with Anne, but I also regularly did weekly workouts, and webinars. I was hungry to get to the demo recording, but Anne would not let me until I was ready. I am so filled with gratitude to her for that. Anne has helped me achieve the next level in my VO journey. Anne, you are an ABSOLUTE ROCK STAR! And I love you beyond words and am so proud to be your student! I am so proud to represent your brand and mine with this demo.
Anne is the real deal…I’ve worked in the entertainment industry since 1974. SAG/AFTRA union member since 1988. As I make the transition in my career to include Voice Over talent, I was lucky enough to find Anne and the VO Peeps online. I have always been very suspect of the “Make money in Voice over industry”. People more interested in selling you VO classes and VO demo tapes than helping you acquire the skills to be able to perform as VO talent and have clients pay good money for it! Anne is the real deal.
We auditioned for a voice for our IVR and fell in love with Anne’s voice instantly. Working with her on our project made me lag behind a bit. She answered promptly on whatever requests we’ve thrown at her, shown initiative recording several takes for us to choose from and basically took me by surprise when I’ve got my final result in no time, while providing great quality. All in all, we will definitely choose her again for our voice needs.
After working with Anne Ganguzza I can tell you that this talented lady knows what she’s doing AND she takes great direction!
YAY! Thank you so much–my demo sounds amazing–and I can’t wait to share it! I can’t believe that’s my voice :D”
Christmas came early for me today. Your workshop was the greatest gift I could have hoped for! I can’t begin to express my appreciation. I always learn so much from you and what you gave me today was priceless!
I have been following Anne for less than a year now and I have come to the conclusion that she’s a voice over marketing guru. Not only does she have a great voice but knows how to help others learn the ropes and achieve success!
Anne Ganguzza – What an amazing and supportive resource for all VO Actors! Anne is a truly passionate teacher, mentor and friend. I highly recommend her Business and Marketing seminars, as well as Meetups and Workouts!
I’m sending out this email as a quick follow up from the conference of last weekend. I joined your talk about breaking the narration market in the US and I found it inspiring to have such a successful entrepreneur teaching other aspiring VO artists about what it takes to be successful both in the workshop as well as during the equality panel at the very end.
Anne’s VO business savvy and experience in the field makes for focused, astute and applicable mentoring. I took away action items from our session which I was able to immediately implement with confidence and success. Targeted, applicable insight. #vo #demo
Anne was quick, professional, and provided results. The transaction was painless, and everything was done in one take, with essentially a 48 hour turn around. Very pleased. Thanks Anne!
Amazing teacher who conveys a passion for the VO industry and for sharing with others…David and Anne: I’m emailing you to share some happy news and to say thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. I received my first audiobook narration offer last week and am extremely excited to begin production…I am filled with glee, and feel confident and ready to begin this new adventure. That feeling results directly from the skills I’ve learned from you both at VO2GoGo. You are amazing teachers who convey a passion for the VO industry and for sharing with others, while imparting such valuable and useful knowledge that can be put into practice immediately…You guys are the best! Thank you again for all that you do, and I look forwarding to learning more and more.
I would like to extend my sincere thanks for Twitter contest and allowing me to take your X-session. You showed how passionate you are about your subject matter by spending so much time with us and providing us much needed information to push our businesses to the next level! It was so informative and detailed–I will take my time to study your class info and apply it to my social media sources. You’re fantastic on a personal and professional level, and I can’t wait to meet up again!
Anne, you did a fantastic job, quick turnaround and so very professional! I could not have asked for a better job. Thanks again!
Anne has an excellent working knowledge of the voice over business and conveys it to her audience well!
Anne Ganguzza is one of the top voice talents in the business. She has a wide variety of range and a true talent. And best of all she goes above and beyond to meet pressured deadlines and is a delight to work with.
She’s the best…I am proud to tell the world… She is an amazing coach and mentor. Thanks for everything Anne!
Thank you so much for the branding session today, I learned a ton! I’m already putting some of the knowledge gained from it into practice (just alt texted all my photos on my site, haha), and you’ve definitely got me thinking about how to build my brand in different ways. Thanks for generously sharing some amazing advice and tips with me!
The workshop was very informative and put a lot of things in perspective…Thank you so much for tonight’s meeting at Edge Studios, the workshop was very informative and put a lot of things in perspective for branding my voice. While this was geared towards voice over work primarily a lot of the advice and information you had given us I feel can also be used in other fields of interest, including my interest in illustration and animation. I’ll be joining VOPeeps as swift as this email is sent to you. Thank you so much for the event, have a great night and hope to stay in touch.
I’m just going to say it: I am so proud of this demo! The opportunity to work with someone of Anne’s caliber could have been intimidating, but she is as genuine, grounded and supportive as she is talented, intelligent and savvy about the performance and business of VO. I leveled up significantly working with her; she challenged me to identify and articulate my true goals, helped me understand and begin to put into practice what it would take to achieve them, refined my vocal branding and generally welcomed me into her sphere of excellence. The resulting demo represents both Anne’s production skill and overall process: painstaking discovery and honing and relationship-building—and lots of trust and hard work from both of us. So, thank you for everything you bring to everything you do, Anne. It’s not often that joy and deep respect are inspired in me by the same person, but you have and do!
WOW!! I am so giddy with excitement I can hardly contain it! I don’t know how I’ll be able to pay attention to my algorithm analysis class starting in a few minutes. Anne, thank you for being so dedicated to coaching me. The final product is better than I could have ever expected, and I’m so happy about having the extra toy commercial samples! You are such an amazing coach and mentor. Thank you for making this demo happen!!
Wonderful class – very informative and inspirational! Appreciate the depth of knowledge and enthusiasm. Hope I can utilize even half of the information shared! Thanks Anne!
So, I’m on books 5 and 6 with one client/author who apparently likes what I’m doing…and suddenly I get a tweet from an author in Alabama who’s got 25 books he wants me to do…likes the voice, thinks it’ll work, etc. He and his agent call tonight, and they’re wanting me in on their marketing promos etc…incredible… Anyway, point here is that it’s in major part to your kind guidance and I wanted you to know how much I appreciate your support and help!
As I expected from a Jersey girl whom was highly referred :), you did not disappoint us. The greeting is amazing…We intend to refer you as much as possible. The person whom we intended to use turned out to be a bit too arrogant for my blood… and we elected to go with the voice of an angel instead
Anne is an amazing talent! Not only did she do an amazing job with our voice over but delivered it to me within 36 hours!! Quick turn around! Great Work! Fantastic Talent!! Thank you Anne!!!
You rock! Thanks s0 much for the#VOTripleThreat webinar through Edge Studios. You rock! Thanks for sharing. Without a doubt, you have a great mind for marketing and the examples you gave were brilliant.
Without a doubt, in the world of VoiceOver, women can do things on-mic guys never will and Anne Ganguzza sits at the top! I love your work, as well as your tenacious & innovative marketing efforts. Keep doin’ that voodoo that you do so well! Love ya, girl.
LOVED her recent EdgeStudio training class! If you are serious about marketing your voice over talent you really must follow @aganguzza. LOVED her recent @EdgeStudio training class!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you! You are so knowledgeable and easy to work with! Worth every penny and I feel better already!
The majority of what I do in the narration category is corporate/industrial – but my narration demo just didn’t reflect this. Anne Ganguzza to the rescue! I enjoyed the process, the scripts and companies she chose for me to highlight were perfect for my voice type and range, and her direction on the day of recording was spot on. I’m really happy with the results. Thanks so much, Anne! 2017 SOVAS Nominee: Outstanding Narration Demo Reel, Best Voiceover
Your recording is fantastic! I just implemented it today and it sounds great. Very professional and soothing. Perfect!
I’d heard about Anne and been aware of her prowess as a coach for narration in particular, so I decided to leap forward once I knew I couldn’t stand still any longer. She starts off getting to know you well, which is both logical and awesome. She wants to know your personality, background, and such to not only learn your voice type and what types of voiceover you’d be best situated for as she listens, but also to know where your passions lie, as that can come through in your performance. Her insights into narration, the way she makes it so common sense and how she keeps you in mind of who your audience is, cannot be beat. Working with Anne made me more sure of myself and where I fit in. I felt very humbled to see her and her engineer John working so hard for my sake at the actual demo production time. When you have the chance, don’t pass up working with Anne on business, voiceover, or anything.
Anne is an Amazing VO Coach! I just attended my first VO class with Anne and I will definitely be returning for more! She is a gifted coach who obviously knows the VO business inside out. The day was packed with great tips and techniques on how to grow your VO business and I especially enjoyed how she worked with each of us on our voice and mic skills – so encouraging – and brought out the best in each of us. Thank you Anne for so generously sharing your knowledge and skills.
I met Anne as a participant in her social media workshop at a voice-over conference in Atlanta. Her great personality and sense of humor coupled with her very informative and relevant social media workshop prompted me to seriously expand my business’s social media campaign. Thank you Anne for sharing your gifts and talents and being a genuinely nice person!
Until I took Anne’s So Smart Social Media course, the thought of marketing on any of the social media sites put my head in a spin! But Anne explained it ALL. Now I understand how Twitter works and why Linked In is an effective and important tool to have in my marketing arsenal and, when used the right way, Facebook can be more than just posting pics of family and friends… it can actually boost my business! Anne is great! She is energetic, fun, and knows how to explain the technical stuff in a way anyone can understand and apply to their business. I can’t wait to put my new found knowledge to work! Thanks, Anne Ganguzza!
Anne, thank you so much for the Corporate Narration training today! I appreciate your insight, your approach and the fact that you kept the session energized the entire time!
This was the first time I have taken a class from Anne, and her coaching is phenomenal! She is both professional and personable. She makes her students feel very comfortable, while encouraging them to do their best. I would recommend her to not just beginning voiceover students, but also to long time working pros who want to improve their craft. It’s evident that she has a passion for all things voiceover.
Anne has consistently provided me with professional quality voice overs in a timely manner. She is an excellent communicator and is a pleasure to work with.
…And I always feel like I’ve stumbled onto something legitimate when I see your name on a roster. It gives me confidence when I see your name.
Suddenly I’m not afraid anymore – I’m excited! Anne, thanks so much for helping me get over my fear of social media. After meeting you on Thursday, I went back to my room and built my FB Actor/VO page and also sent my first tweet.
You really set the tone for a great voice over training experience, making newbies, like me, at ease! The all day class I recently attended (Animation and Videogames, Trailers and Promos) was so informative! I learned so much with the group setting. What a great way to explore, stretch and learn from all who attended with their and your helpful critiques! I had such a positive experience and met many new friends and really thank you so much for coaching us in a personal way to make each of us shine uniquely! Truly, you make it Really Great Fun! Thank you!
Anne Ganguzza is an excellent instructor. She brings much to the feast with deep experience and a keen ear.
How to describe Anne in just a few short words? How about: “I owe her my career.” Coach, talent, mentor, trainer, director, producer…..yep, she pretty much does it all. And she does it with a level of professionalism and enthusiasm that’s hard to believe, let alone find anywhere else. Plus, she’s just such a blast to work with. Thanks so much Anne, you truly are the best.
Just booked my first client through Twitter. It’s a UNION JOB. That’s just crazy pants!!!!! I would like to credit my teacher, Anne Ganguzza with teaching me about the social media train. You rock coach Anne!!!!! Also, just got my ipDTL to ISDN all set up with Anne’s encouragement and reassurance (I was afraid lol). Anne, you inspire me every day. My client was very happy to save on studio costs, and the session is tomorrow. It’s all because of you girl!
Your instructing was really fun with lots of great information! I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that I really enjoyed the vo2gogo voiceover class you taught on Wednesday. I hope to get down to Orange County soon for some of your VO Peeps meetups.
Anne delivered the three most important things I needed for a very high-profile project: flexibility, absolutely *flawless* reads, and, most of all, professionalism. I never had to worry about anything with Anne – Would her reads be good? Would her files be clean? Would she make her dates? – on this project. I’ll use her again for the peace of mind alone, never mind all of the other things she brings to the table. She’s a consummate professional.
I like my own demo. And I made it. What’s a gal gonna do? 2017 SOVAS Nominee: Outstanding Narration Demo Reel, Best Voiceover
Anne Ganguzza will get you on the right track… For those who are just beginning their journey in the voice over industry, or if you are an established media veteran who may be looking to go to the “next level” Anne Ganguzza is the one you want to work with. As a professional television sports anchor and play-by-play commentator, I have 25 years of on camera experience in large markets. However, becoming a voice over talent required me to learn a different way to use my voice and delve deeper into how I can become better and more versatile . After working with Anne over the past year I have not only improved my on camera delivery but now I am a legitimate voice over artist with a wide range of skills as well as a phenomenal demo that Anne produced. If becoming a successful voice over talent is what you desire Anne Ganguzza will get you on the right track.
She has quickly become one of my very favorite people in the VO community…An afternoon well spent! Anne Ganguzza provided some fantastic social marketing information that I plan on implementing into my own marketing plan immediately. She has quickly become one of my very favorite people in the VO community.
It was a real pleasure to have Anne Ganguzza as my coach. She was inspiring, totally professional, caring, and most of all a lot of fun!
This demo captures the “essence” of me! It’s a stellar representation of my skills and range. Working with Anne helped me realize my vocal brand and helped me develop a new love for commercial work. Upon listening to my demo for the first time, I cried. I was just so blown away with the phenomenal way that it highlights my vocal brand. I highly recommend Anne for coaching and demo production. I love her so much professionally and personally, and I am honored to have her as a coach, demo producer, and friend.
I love this…and thank you, Anne. You did a wonderful job and I appreciate you and am so glad to have come to know your warm, kind, passionate and beautiful self
…within day’s of receiving my commercial demo I was signed by the top agency here in Denver! I really want to thank Anne Ganguzza for working with me over the last several months, picking the scripts that brand my voice perfectly along with coaching me!
Yesterday, I had another corporate narration coaching session with the fabulous Anne Ganguzza @aganguzza. She really knows her stuff and is so insightful. Remarkable ability to break down a script and a student’s performance. And we always have so much fun, laughing like crazy. Looking forward to my next lesson! #voiceover #narration #corporatenarration
Enjoyed last week’s class! You always start on time and deliver even more than expected. Thanks for paying it forward!
Learned a lot in my marketing and branding session with @aganguzza. I walked away with several new ideas to use in the coming year.
Many thanks for an exceptional master class! It gave me many new ideas to use as I ease my way back into the VO market. Added to that your inspiring “how-to’s” of handling social media will be very valuable.
Working with Anne Ganguzza was the best choice I made for my business and I am so proud of what we accomplished together. Anne is amazing because she gives her students everything she has to make us not just stronger in the areas she is coaching us in, but to make us better able to work for our own clients in every way a voice talent has to provide service. I started working with Anne because I needed a commercial coach. In addition to teaching me to engage in commercial copy in a conversational and relatable way, Anne helped me to overhaul the technology that I was using, pushed me to consider different software choices, helped me connect with other voiceover professionals who I could seek guidance from, worked with me on branding and marketing for my business, prepared me for my demo, helped with script selection… I could write an article and not a blurb, but I will be forever grateful to have had the opportunity to train with the one and only Anne Ganguzza. She is extremely smart and highly talented and I feel blessed to call myself her student!
“Thank you again for my fantastic demo! I’m incredibly excited about where this will lead me next. I just wanted to write and say again how much I’ve enjoyed working with you. You’re teaching technique was extremely clear, helpful, and supportive. Thank you for all of your help!”
Anne is a valuable resource for our online training and education projects. She always delivers timely and error free scripts and voice overs that engage our audience from beginning to end. Anne’s attention to detail and pronunciation of difficult terms in medical and IT are impressive. SilkWeb highly recommends Anne Ganguzza for any organization looking for professional script writing and voice talent.
“Anne’s services came highly recommended for some needed VO business consulting, as my career needed a boost, and Anne Ganguzza is the VO Boss Lady of social media, strategy and marketing. One thing I lacked was a solid corporate demo, and with Anne’s expert coaching, direction, and narration know-how, I now have a spectacular new Corporate Narration demo! And I couldn’t be happier – the experience was productive and enriching, and I think this truly captures 100% the real me. Working with Anne is fun, inspiring, and eye-opening, and I know we’ll do more in the future. Many, many thanks! I know this is going to help me reach higher rungs on that VO ladder. Like a Boss! Who ya gonna call? Ganguzza!
A creative gleam of pure social media knowledge! Wow, I thought I understood how to market on social media, but boy was I surprised. After a phenomenal class with Anne I now realize just how much I needed to know. Possession of the knowledge is one thing, but using it is a totally different one. Thanks Anne, and vopeeps I look forward to blasting social media with my new weapons.
I want to tell you how much I appreciated our time together today. As a performer and director myself, I am keenly aware that rarely will the two entities mix as well as what I experienced during our recording session today. You are not only a very caring individual who knows the VO industry well, but you don’t leave a stone unturned when it comes to specific direction – while allowing individual expression in the hands (and voice) of the “talent.” It’s a tightrope, and you walk it well. You are a very special individual – and I am most pleased to have made your acquaintance.
I had the great pleasure of attending two of your talks at the One Voice Conference last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed listening to your honest and invaluable advice. Thank you very much for taking the time to talk to us. Elearning, Explainer animations and Corporate videos are my bread and butter, so what you spoke about was particularly relevant to me. In fact, I also put your rates advice to the test yesterday and negotiated a very good deal with a new client. The recording’s in the can and both parties are happy!
Anne is a wonderful instructor. Her marketing knowledge is top notch. She generously gave extra time to all of us in her VOAtlanta X-Session.
Thank You for re-igniting my drive…I wanted to Thank You once again for all of your guidance and tips. I learned a lot and am thinking differently about how to approach the business side of the industry as far as branding myself and going to more networking opportunities like the workshop and other types of gatherings…
