What People Are Saying...

“I'm loving this course, Don! Thanks so much for putting it together. I'll probably be referring back to these videos...forever.”
Sarah Nessel
“[Don] promised me that I'd be amazed, and I was skeptical... but he was right! Do it. And if you're on the fence, ask around. You're gonna find a lot of people who've benefited from him”
Sheri Lair Saginor
“Having the JumpStart videos guide you through the initial process...Don explains it so clearly, and in a very compassionate, non-stressful way. He speaks in a language that everyone can understand. If find it really easy to work with now, and I feel like I work so much faster now than I did before.”
Anna Crowe
“The course is PRICELESS! I can't speak highly enough about the JumpStart courses; they saved my VO's been the best thing I've done.”
“Congrats, Don Baarns! Well done. Having spent several hours with you, one-on-one, as well as watched many hours of your tutorials...your new S1 JumpStart video class is an incredible value. Anyone new to S1, and even the vets, can become more productive and really hone their craft.”
“It's worth the investment, it's worth the time to watch the videos. If you're serious about doing voiceover, audiobooks, is DEFINITELY worth the time and the money.”
“I started with Audacity and was able to get my audio in a good place...that being said, I made the switch to Studio One this year and wish I had done it sooner. I took Don Baarns' JumpStart course and it has made the whole process a million times easier and faster. Not only is it going faster but my audio has a higher quality sound. And I am somewhat impatient when it comes to learning tech stuff, so the course was definitely worth it."
“The S1 JumpStart video classes are a goldmine for anyone looking to get started with Studio One! I can't wait to see the S1 Advanced Classes, not to mention the RX series! These classes are such a bargain!”
Jon Oak
“This has absolutely been worth it to me...I know it's scary when you're looking at a piece of software that you haven't used before, but quite frankly, I wish I'd done it sooner.”
Jonathan Salkoff
“For anybody who's thinking about whether or not they should jump in, I say 'Go for it'. It's completely doable, it's comfortable, and fun, actually! The lessons are enjoyable. You feel like you're in the room.”
Laura Patinkin Urken
