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!

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!

I believe that the most important aspect of learning is a positive and comfortable environment that encourages and facilitates growth! My studio ranges from ages 9 to adult and from beginner to advanced.

Through my own studies I have experienced many different teaching styles and philosophies, and have developed my own method to help my students progress quickly and efficiently.

Every lesson will begin with a discussion about the students practicing so that we can celebrate growth and work together through challenges.

Students will be asked to study technical and tone exercises as well as repertoire that will help them progress in the necessary areas. I will help my students choose pieces that are appropriate and enjoyable.

If a student would like to study a popular song then I will gladly write my own arrangement for them. We can also learn to play by ear and improvise.

For my online students I will record solos, duets, and piano parts to pieces that we cannot play ...

I teach hornists of all ages, and have been teaching privately for 6 years! I have a music education and horn performance background and teach based off the learning styles that best meet a student’s needs. I have experience with teaching young and mature beginners, elementary-high school, and college. I love helping students prepare for college auditions and exploring different options as to how music can be a part of their life. A unique process I love for teaching : using my students’ favorite song or artist to build fundamentals on the horn!

There are so many out dated and incorrect blogs out there. It was a game of "Truth, Myth, or Lie." I highly recommended her for your Korean studies."
