Voice Over Workshops
Wow wow wow - thank you so much for visiting Northern Illinois University! Your two-day workshop was just wonderful - we all learned such important and insightful information about the business. And your presentation and mock auditions were filled with kindness, directness, and humour. Fabulous combination! It was indeed a joy having you here.
After taking Jeffrey Dreisbach's Workshop, I feel I have gained the insight needed to take the next step in my career. Jeff taught the class with intelligence, humor and a wealth of knowledge. Even though there were several people in the class, it was evident to me that he got to know each of us and was able to focus on our particular strengths and weaknesses. I look forward to taking more of Mr. Dreisbach's classes and urge anyone who is gearing up for a job in the industry to do the same.
I recommend every actor listen to ALL of these. Great help coming from someone who knows what they are talking about. Also if you haven’t had to chance to meet Jeff in person, do so.
So 'right on'!
You are brilliant in sharing your knowledge, and with enough wit and spice to make me want to listen and feel more actor savvy as I do so.
Will definitely pass this on and can't wait to watch additional episodes once back home.
Wish you all the best with this and where it takes you next.

I just listened to two of the podcasts in your series. Great information that really supports and reinforces everything that good acting teachers should be teaching at a university level. First of all, you have such a lovely, kind and compassionate tone and attitude. This will go far in how much the listener connects with you. Casting Directors can come across as insensitive and even quite harsh, and for good reason at times. But I firmly believe in always trying to be constructive instead of destructive. One of my best friends is a Hollywood casting director, and she is always so kind to my students. She is firm and professional but very kind. This series will be so helpful to actors. I am going to refer my actors to your website for certain. Let me know if you are in the LA area (Vanguard University is in Costa Mesa, CA in So Orange County); and maybe we can work out a Q & A session at some point. Thanks for your professionalism and help!
