Nick is an amazing voice teacher and a highly skilled singer himself. His lessons are very thorough, but also fun! While Nick gives you corrections, he also emphasizes the things that you are also doing well on. You will leave his lessons feeling confident and energized!
Emma
I have had the privilege of working alongside Nick, learning from him, and watching him grow as a performer and as a teacher. I have seen him instruct and collaborate with peers and adults, as well as kids ranging from 8 to 18. The way in which he is able to articulate and pinpoint areas where improvement is available, while simultaneously keeping things fun and positive, is a true accomplishment. He cares so deeply about the work, as well as people. If you are looking for someone for your kids or for yourself, Nick comes with a plethora of knowledge and a humble, jovial demeanor. It will be a judgement free zone, so you can come as you are, wherever you are with your singing journey. Be prepared to work hard, connect to your body, and have a great time. I personally still look to him for audition advice, style tips, and reminders of technique. I could not recommend Nick enough.

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!
don
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!

How to Become a Stage Actor: What Theater Students Need to Know

I’ve said it once and I will say it again, we are all actors by nature! Anyone can be an actor if given the proper tools and training.  There are ways to become a stronger stage actor and as performers we should always be learning and growing. When speaking to new actors, I often quote Michael Shurtleff, the author of my favorite acting text, “Audition”. He once said, “Use what you know. Don't worry about what you don't know.”  This couldn’t be more true! Acting is reacting and …
