Testimonials

"When I met David Harbold, I’d been the Vocal/General Music Teacher at Battle Monument School outside of Baltimore, MD, for nearly 20 years. The school, which educates students ages 3-21 who all have significant physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges, was ground-breaking in its commitment to putting on bi-annual musical productions, and reached visibility at the state level.

"Because of the school productions’ increased popularity, an annual fundraiser made it possible to begin hiring a professional actor to record the show’s narration in 2010.

"David Harbold was a gold mine of talent once he began narrating in 2012. It was immediately evident that he offered much more than mere narration. His imitative, character, and acting skills made him able not only to narrate with incredible professionalism, but to voice other characters in the productions. He can do an amazing array of accents, and was always able to imitate any character voice we ever gave him.

"Many of Battle Monument’s students are non-verbal, and special, adaptive equipment is used to pre-record lines onto devices that the students then access during the show to “say” their lines. Mr. Harbold's voices on these devices were impeccable, and often motivated the students to “say” their lines more effectively.

"In addition to paying for professional narration, Battle Monument School was also able to pay a professional studio to pre-record it, and numerous times the studio engineer remarked about the high quality of Mr. Harbold's work – a comment that had never been made about those who’d previously recorded narration. His narration was always perfectly suited to each production, and his careful preparation always made the recording process smooth and efficient.

"I highly recommend Mr. Harbold for any kind of voice-over work. He will approach it with diligence, professionalism, and a stellar intuition for character and inflection."

Sincerely,
Christina Blackman

"David came to the rescue when I needed a great voice that was fast, dependable and affordable. I sent him the script with a bit of direction and he got it right back to me. I was able to use his read right away to get the commercial in on time. Need a voice? David Harbold is the voice you need."
