Shauna is awesome! Just completed my fourth lesson, and she really emphasizes and teaches the foundation of voice and singing. She is kind, patient and intelligent! Definitely take her classes!
Mark
I am so grateful to have found Shauna for singing lessons. I have no prior experience singing and Shauna has taught me the fundamentals of singing and how to use my voice. She possesses every quality in an instructor I look for. She's patient, observant, and you can tell she truly wants you to succeed. The online format fits with my schedule and my lesson has turned into one of my favorite things to look forward to each week.

She's a great combination of friendly, yet professional, and brings many years of varied experience to her craft into the teaching experience.

"I have had the privaledge of being around the most iconic talents ever in show biz because of my father Harvey Korman.So having heard Aubrey Sing it harkens me back fo my favorite singers Joanne Gleason Bernadette Peters and Eydie Gormes,Karen Carpenters.The best compliment I can give Aubrey is that she is a songstress.Thats a artists who can sing and tell a story with inflection in all the right places while she expresses her humanity through song.Like her idol Barbara Streisand she is just one exuisite artists that lives and breaths and embodies every song she sings.You would be hard pressed to study with anyone as polished and dedicated as Aubrey.I don't have a daughter but if I did I hope she ends up like Aubrey then I know what it is to have created a masterpiece.She is a second generation artists her father is also a very sublimely gifted artists Glenn Williams here in Vegas."
