"I recently worked with Karen DeBoer in the Voiceover Academy private coaching class, and I have truly been blown away by how easy and fun she makes learning. The entire process was not only painless, it was enjoyable. Karen has the ability to coax out the very best from her students, while teaching both the fundamentals and intricacies of the voice acting process in a genuinely engaging way. Her skill at directing for demos is also fantastic, and I felt every minute of the recording session was stress-free and relaxing — not always the case in the studio! I highly recommend Karen for private coaching, direction or even voice over. First class all the way!" - Micah Touchet

"Karen is an excellent teacher. She taught me how to reach inside myself and really think about what the copy is saying, as well as how to apply the correct conversational tone to the piece. As I listen to the 'before' and 'after', the difference is really evident! I greatly enjoyed working with Karen and would recommend her to anyone considering voiceover coaching." - Craig Robinson
