I enjoyed working with Adam on reducing my accent. He has an uncanny talent to pick up subtleties in my pronunciation to identify where my accent becomes apparent. He worked iteratively with me to find words, syllable, vowels or consonants that I mispronounce. What makes him a great teacher is that he approaches the pronunciation from many different angles. It's not easy to work on your own accent which is why his witty teachings helps a lot to make every session very enjoyable.
Sergio
He pinpoints a lot of small things, that overall help tremendously. He has a great ear and picks up on little subtleties in your voice that you can improve, and this causes you to hold yourself accountable to the same standards as a result. Overall, after just one lesson, i have learned a lot and am eager to continue learning with Adam.
Justin
Adam was great to work with for my first lesson. He has a lot of experience and gives good tips and advice. I'm looking forward to more lessons with him.

Andrea is amazing! She is my first choice anytime I have an audition. You will walk into your audition ready, and focused on the work. Love her!!
Helen
Andrea is one of the finest actors and acting coaches I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. She has this amazing ability to get people from ‘acting’ to ‘being.’ She has elicited some of my most breakthrough acting moments with her incredible presence, razor sharp specificity, and in depth script analysis.
Reece
Andrea is essential in my process: either that be an audition or in preparing a role. Her guidance has been instrumental in helping me develop a strong point of view in my work when I’ve felt lost. Her experience gives her the expert language to discuss what doesn’t work to tell a story while bringing the best out of the actor. She is a gem. I am lucky to have her as coach.

I am about to enter high school and I wanted to improve my acting skills in preparation for my goal to perform in school plays. I came to Shauna to learn acting techniques and skills to improve my acting abilities. I learned so much from Shauna. I looked forward to my weekly acting lessons and the preparation that went into each lesson. Shauna helped me feel at ease, even when doing something new and challenging. She encouraged me to reach outside my comfort zone and the exercises helped me really understand acting. This has been a great experience and I look forward to working with Shauna in the future!
Jon
Easily the best voice teacher I've had. I took a break for a long time from singing, and so it's really been starting from scratch. Shauna is an incredible teacher in her ability to not only explain the mechanics of singing, but also tie in the mental pieces as well. I've been working with her for a few months by now, and very excited to see what kind of progress is made as we keep working together.
Carin
I’ve been working with Shauna for the past 5 months, and in that time my voice has strengthened by leaps and bounds. She is an excellent teacher, and I feel lucky to be learning from her. Shauna is warm, insightful, and she has a wealth of knowledge and strategies that she utilizes to help her students. I highly recommend her.

The acting methods I use are geared towards acting for singing. In these lessons we will coach through a piece of music by exploring the character or poet's intentions.

About Jessica

Praised for her "beautiful upper range" and "sparkling tone", soprano Jessica was recently named a semi-finalist for the 2019-2020 American Prize in Art Song/Oratorio for the Women's Collegiate level, a semi-finalist for The Orpheus Competition 2020, and a finalist at the 2019 Great Italian Songs C

Laura
I worked with Jessica for roughly two years. During that time we worked on different vocal techniques and explored many different music styles such as classical and Broadway. Jessica helped me find confidence in myself and my voice. Because of my work with Jessica, I auditioned for and earned a spot in an audition-only choir, something I never could have done without everything I learned from Jessica.

In addition to singing techniques, I learned important things about the voice and how to keep it healthy.

Jessica is an exceptional voice teacher and I learned so much from her.
Cheryl
My 12 year old daughter was thrilled to resume voice lessons with Miss Jessica using Zoom. My daughter started with Jessica at the age of 10. Jessica is a gifted singer and teacher. Singing is one of my autistic daughter’s strengths and I feel so fortunate to have Jessica helping her develop her vocal talents. I highly recommend Jessica.
Erin
Jessica is awesome! I've been taking lessons with her for a few months now. She's super nice, and is great at teaching how to improve all aspects of my singing. Highly recommend taking lessons from her!

Let's face it, we all know how to act. We did it as children. The only difference between what we all did as children and a career in acting is knowing how to utilize those skills. As a former actor I can help you develop valuable techniques to further your skills in performing, however, as a current director and casting agent, I also give you insights into the other side of industry to help you nail those roles!

I've spent my whole life either acting myself or directing others in doing so.

About Christopher

So, I first became interested in acting at age 2 when I learned how to lie, like all kids do. However, my love for it started when I was 9 after I was given a camera for Christmas. My early attempts at films were mostly amateurish and spontaneous...yeah... But in late 2009, however, I started work

Alyssa is a wonderful teacher This was my first voice lesson ever. She was understanding, enthusiastic and very helpful in getting me started
Susan.
Alyssa is an upbeat, encouraging, and patient teacher. Her own singing voice is beautiful, and she sings very professionally in a wide range of genres. She is reliable, pleasant, sincere, and capable. She gives each student her full attention and tailors her lessons to each one's particular talent (as well as where they're in need of improvement). I recommend Alyssa very highly... She's delightful!

"Rebecca Linton is an absolutely phenomenal acting teacher. I cannot express how grateful I am for her guidance and instruction. She is the best teacher I have ever had by far. She is incredibly knowledgeable about all things acting. She knows how to push her actors to improve beyond where they thought they could go. She had led me to get multiple Superior ratings at acting competitions. She is familiar with a host of different acting methods including but not limited to those of Uta Hagen, Stanislavsky, and Sanford Meisner. I seriously cannot express how grateful I am for her. She had had a profound impact on my life and taught and cared for me in a way no other acting teacher in the world ever could!"
