We did online tonight per my request. Michael is so patient and encouraging and he answers my questions that are endless. I feel hopeful that I am learning the correct form and things I definitely would not pick up just trying to teach myself through the book. Thank you Michael!

Shauna has been great! Patient with beginners, and even in the short time I have been working with her, I've noticed the improvements.

My daughters have been taking lessons with Shauna for several months now. I'm continually impressed with how well she connects with them and inspires them. Not only is she an amazing voice teacher, she is also a good, positive influence on my daughters. She's amazing!

I've been gearing toward getting back out to professional auditions, and working with Shauna in her online class for several months has helped walk me closer to that end. I'd very highly recommend Shauna -particularly if you want to experience how a professional Director/Teacher really works and creates/collaborates with actors. It's clear she has worked with actors at the top of their fields, so I feel I can really trust her eye for what works and what doesn't. On top of all that, I feel her collaborative feedback and direction is full of insights, highly relevant, relatable, respectful, professional, actor-friendly, truthful, gentle, and inspiringly and humanly artistic!

Acting class was so much fun! I wanted to try something different to challenge myself & my friends recommended I try an acting class because I’m so “extra” as they put it. Well I finally got up the nerve to try a class & J was so helpful & worked with me to feel comfortable. He never made me feel like I couldn’t do it, plus it was so fun that I can’t wait to try another class. If you are a beginner like myself than he is the perfect instructor for you.
Tim Jones
I thoroughly enjoyed my class with J. I didn’t know what to expect and was a little apprehensive at first but by the time I finished the session I was at ease. He broke things down to where I could understand being a novice, and made me feel like I belonged! I highly recommend J to anyone who wants to really learn about the true art of Acting!!

"I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach."

I've gotten so much out of his teaching and so have many of my friends. If you have an audition or play coming up, he's the one to get you ready for it!
