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.
Catherine
Shauna is great, and I am grateful to have found her. My goal is to find my authentic voice, and her methods and expertise are perfectly suited to this purpose. She helps me understand how sound is made and moves through my body, where it is blocked and how to use it to truly express myself. I have greater awareness of my body, and of how sound connects me to my deepest self. I love my lessons and leave refreshed and energized!
Karina
Literally, I couldn’t ask for a better Broadway singing and acting coach! Honestly, she's been so patient with me since I am pretty new to this industry. She has been nothing but supportive and I really can’t thank her enough for that. With Shauna by my side, I feel like I'm getting closer to my dream! Her classes are always fun as she has a great sense of humor plus all the knowledge and on top of that, experience in the industry insight. In the tough times of coronavirus, Shauna suggested Facetime lessons that are actually very convenient and beneficial. Think about it, staying home, not spending time on commute and keeping yourself and others healthy. Thank you, Shauna. Really grateful for meeting you! Best regards, Karina

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.

Private Acting Teacher

For 43 years, since 1975, I have pioneered the use of Gestalt Techniques of awareness training, dream work and work on personal relationships as a tool to supplement traditional methods of teaching performers: actors, singers, dancers. this approach interlocks especially well with the Michael Chekhov and Brechtian styles of performing.

As a performer you cannot express well actions which you cannot deal with in your own life, so filling these holes in your own functioning is half the job of releasing your artistic creativity. In this way you do not need to resort to cliches and gimmicks to fool your audience. all of you is there for real, authentic. Your search for truth is also your goal as an artist.

About Franklyn

I am a med school dropout who decided one day not to keep fighting his creativity demon. Next came 6 years of Musical Theater training at Julliard (2 years), Columbia (2years, ma degree), Indiana school of music (2 years), and one year of social work training at Pittsburgh, 1970-1980 I spent 10 yea

I worked with Franklyn from 1975-76. His Gestalt Theater workshop helped me to learn about myself, gain self-confidence, work with others, and discover and sharpen my skills.
David
Working with Franklyn is being with a true master of a field. Not only was the process well organized, done pragmatically, and attention paid to the details, but also Franklyn taught his trade as he took you along his particular Gestalt influenced method. He is well versed and highly skilled in helping actors and people reach their potential. I recommend him for his vast knowledge, dedication, and hard work in making a final product, the product is a better you! Thank you Franklyn!
Eugene
I am an introvert by nature . It is hard for me some times to express my feelings openly . Franklyn helped me to open up , to trust my self more ! He showed me the way to express my self , he showed me some actin techniques , we did some weird staff like expressive body movement and other ,weird for the guy who never took acting before , but i had a great joy , and learned some wisdom from this knowledgeable and passionate Teacher ! Thank you Franklyn !

Monica has been working with my 10 year old daughter over the past year to help prepare her for musical vocal performances. My daughter is quite picky and introverted and simply LOVES her voice lessons with Monica! In addition to vocal technique and hygiene, they discuss and practice telling a story and dissect the emotions behind the song. Monica is so warm, positive, engaged, and can make anyone feel comfortable, seen, understood, and more confident in their performing ability. The hour lesson flies by for my daughter and Monica makes her feel special to boot!
Glenn F.
I took my first lesson with Monica and everything was great. I have a lot to learn, and I think she is giving me the proper foundation so that I can eventually become a decent singer.
