Trying to go from stage to screen? It's not easy. If you can act, you can act, but how you communicate your character may differ dramatically. (Sorry. Couldn't help it.)

About Susan

Acting – I have taught all kinds of acting, including Audition Skills, Shakespeare, Stage, Film & TV, Dramatic, Comedic, whatever. I also have quite a bit of experience performing in all those arenas. I have a relationship with one of the best management agencies in the area, so my students get fas

I've been taking lessons with Susan Scher for about two months now. I can easily say I've been impressed at how much I've improved. I look forward to lessons every week. I feel that soon enough I'll be able to audition for roles in film and television. If you live in the Baltimore area and are interested in voice acting or any acting in general. Contact her and go, you won't be disappointed.

I did not know what to expect when I signed up to take classes with Susan. I decided to take classes with her for two reasons: Her studio is not far from me and 2, the good reviews left by her clients. All I wanted was to learn the fundamentals and techniques about acting. Susan was excellent and very patient. She offered water in each lesson, which is also very kind. Her interpersonal connection brings a sense of comfort. Her studio is very neat and welcoming. I do not have regrets in my selections and I know you won't be disappointed too.

Ms. D was extremely patient and thorough with me. And her warm demeanor helped me calm my nerves and loosen up. I appreciate all the valuable insight and direction she gave me.

I had such an amazing experience training with Detrece! She always has such sweet positive energy. I was so happy that with me being more of an advanced singer she was able to teach me about my voice and tips that I never knew! I only had 5 lessons and still had a vocal breakthrough where she helped me realize my range is wider than I thought. She gave me more confidence and is always seeking to share opportunities with me. I’m so grateful to her!!

I’m just a beginner. I appreciate how patient and merciful Patrick as I try to work my way past mistakes and he’s encouraging. He explains things clearly and thanks to his lessons and guidance I’m already making a little progress.

Capable, courteous, and very well versed in his field. Patrick's flexible schedule made it possible for us to cram for an upcoming test, on short notice.
Conveniently, he's preparing to teach a university cpurse on the same subject matter.

No matter what your goals, our lessons together will be the starting place to achieving them. Not only is the studio a supportive, nurturing place to learn about singing/speaking, but it's also a place to have FUN learning about what you are passionate about!

In our first lesson we will learn a little about each other. I will ask what your goals are, what your experiences are, and what you are looking to get out of our lessons together. I will also give you the opportunity to ask about my experience as a singer and as a teacher so you have a better understanding where I am coming from as well.

I believe that the most important foundation of healthy singing/speaking is proper breath support. I have many exercises that will help you find the breath support you need for healthy vocal production. Whether it's Opera, Broadway, or public speaking, the same breathing techniques apply.

We will work on a whole range of singing/speaking exercises that will help you improve your ...

5 Acting Warm Ups & Games to do Before an Audition

Being in the entertainment industry is not much different from being in the sports world. In addition to some natural talent and interest, a huge overlap with both industries is the time spent honing your craft. Of course regular practice is a necessary evil, but come race or audition day, our minds and bodies still need to be prepared for what’s about to happen. Just as we see athletes spending time stretching and warming up before a performance, it’s mandatory that actors warm up before …
