As a voice coach, you will never hear me say the words “you’re not getting it”. I consider it my mission to try different approaches, techniques, and exercises until something clicks. My coaching style involves a lot of dialogue between teacher and student, and I like to use my sense of humor to keep things light and fun, even as I challenge you to go further than you thought possible. When it comes to animation, cartoons, children's e-learning, and video games, I am very grateful to have had experience on both sides of the window. On the production side, I served as voice director and talent supervisor for the Emmy Award-winning PBS cartoon, "WordWorld". I’ve also voice directed various games and toys for The Backyardigans, Go, Diego, Go!, Dora the Explorer, as well as numerous children’s audio books for Scholastic. As Head of the VO Department at Animation Collective, I oversaw the records and casting of nine shows produced for Nickelodeon, Nicktoons, Cartoon Network, and AOL kids. My TV production career started on the show "Blue's Clues", where I won my very first VO role—that of a talking mailbox! As talent, I have narrated projects for Blackberry, Cincinnati Bell, Harrah’s, Hilton, Taximagic, Petflow, WatchDox, Twilio, Green Nissan, Slendertone and Howcast.com among others. For more than three years, I have been the main voice of the award-winning Kognito Interactive, which creates web-based e-learning simulations for various clients including Starwood Hotels, Rutgers, CUNY, Baruch, Fuji Film and the Veteran’s Association of NY/NJ. I graduated from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in Drama, and also trained in improv through Second City. As a live performer, I have four years of stand-up, and eight years of sketch comedy under my belt. I moved to the City of Angels in 2010, and have had a great time heading up Edge Studio’s LA studio!
Enjoyed the class and learned a great deal! And, for that I am so appreciative.
This class was amazing. Noelle was incredibly informative and gave great feedback that really helped me with my copy. Having studio time was a fantastic and eye-opening experience. If I had to give some kind of suggestion for improvement I would say that I wish the class was longer. My evaluation had things on it that I wish I could clarify with Noelle personally. But as the class was only $99 and Noelle was able to pack a ton of information into the time given, I can't really complain. I learned a lot and I am very grateful :)
Teacher was great! Lots of fun! Learned a lot! Can't wait to take more classes here

It was a fun class. I learned many of the fundamentals of VO ( see how I used the inside jargon
Excellent class! Noel was the instructor and she really knows her stuff., She didn't miss a beat. The class had questions about the industry and she was able to give feedback right away. I enjoyed the class and she made me feel comfortable. She pointed out right away what style suited my voice and gave me direction as to where I needed to focus. Thanks Edge!
