Great teacher. Gets you started from the first lesson!

Amber is simply the best. She has a knack for determining my level and knows how far to push me in practices and recommending homework. Her experience serves her well. She is inspiring, motivating and blunt which goes a long way because she is very directed at her constructive criticism and points that need to be improved.

Amber is an amazing teacher who is kind and appreciates the student. She teaches with great passion and makes the student feel the music. I could see my son progressing already and his confidence level has gone up. He shows great interest and practices more than before!

Teresa is a very knowledgeable and talented teacher! I have learned so many new techniques with sewing and clothing design thanks to her! She is very patient, kind, and dedicated to making sure her students acquire the skills they need to be successful. She thoroughly explains the projects we are working on as well as gives a clear demonstration on any project we are working on. Her in home studio is beautiful! It is quiet, clean, and organized. I truly enjoy my visits there! I’m very lucky that I found Teresa through Take Lessons and I’m so thankful to have her as my sewing guru!
Paige L.
Theresa was amazing is all I can say. My daughter needed a choreographed ballet program in three days and she pulled it together and made extra time to fit her in so she could perfect it. I should say my daughter has not done ballet since the start of the pandemic. I am so thankful for her.

Teresa is an incredibly knowledgeable and considerate teacher! We took ten Salsa lessons with her, coming in with no dancing experience and leaving feeling comfortable and confident showing off a myriad of awesome moves! We would highly recommend her!

Shauna is spectacular! She is a highly experienced acting teacher and super knowledgeable. She creates a safe and comfortable space yet still challenges you to be a great actor. I’ve had many acting teachers and she is at the very top! She helps me with private vocal work and I also take her scene class. Excellent excellent teacher - can’t recommend her highly enough!
Karen
I decided to to acting lessons after 35 years of NO acting. I loved Shauna’s class and highly recommend her as a teacher. She had amazing improv exercises that led up to great monologues and scene work. Her criticism and suggestions were firm yet very encouraging and constructive. It was a very good experience. She is extremely knowledgeable
Joan
I had the great good fortune to hear about Shauna last year and have been taking an acting class with her on Zoom since then. She works with all levels and has a keen eye, kind heart, and gentle way of bringing every level of actor to a deeper, genuine way of expression with layer upon layer of development of character. Her classes have also included a wide range of exercises to connect us with our voice and body, something I had not had the benefit of getting in other scene study classes and workshops. I'm looking forward to studying with her in person. I wish I'd have found her sooner!

I have taught and directed for 30 years in NY and DC. From lesson 1, students engage with a dynamic approach to acting through Meisner-based improv. During the 1st 12 weeks, we go from basic truthful acting to dynamic scene work, followed by 12 weeks of in-depth scene study, then extensive character training and in-depth film and audition technique. My students are successful in film, theater, commercials and TV in DC, NY and LA.
