A teacher or mentor is only as good as the standards he sets and the demands he makes of his students. John Burr “sets the bar” very high and demands nothing less. He has an uncanny sense for the nuances of the myriad styles of English prose and how they must be effectively delivered. Ergo he fully expects a voiceover student to embrace and demonstrate that same level of understanding and performance. Whatever success I may have doing voiceovers, I owe to John’s vast experience and his relentless pursuit of perfection.
