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

After one lesson I can already tell Shauna is an amazing teacher!. She really makes you feel comfortable and I'm confident I'll improve dramatically thanks to her. Also, she's super nice which is always a bonus!

Private Theater Acting Teacher

I have been acting and teaching professionally for over 15 years. Onstage I have had the pleasure of working at many of the most respected theaters in the country. It is my passion to help each and every student improve their acting technique and learn about their own abilities as a performer. Each student will receive one on one instruction, helping them achieve their performance goals regardless of their performance level. My approach is multidisciplinary and incorporates the tools of Stanislavsky, Meisner, Viewpoints, and Laban.

Working with me, gives you the experience of both an actor and a director. I see from inside your character and from your audience. I have worked with actors from first-time neophytes to professionals and styles from method to experimental styles of the 60s to improv and back to Shakespeare. I taught theatre in High School and College as well as community classes for children. I have acted and directed for many years.

About Jeannie

I have been in theatre since I was a child. My first love was acting until I was bitten by the directing bug when I realized I could watch my baby be born as the play came to life.

Online Theater Acting Teacher

I've spent almost my entire life onstage. In fact, I appeared onstage before I was even born, as my mother performed in a play when she was pregnant with me. I was bitten by the acting bug at the ripe age of 3, and have been performing ever since.

When I was 18, I studied acting for both film and stage at the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Hollywood, Ca. I later received a Bachelors degree in theatre, and have earned my Master's in Education. I've taught multiple subjects to a variety of ages, specializing in middle school and high school students, but teaching acting has always been my favorite.

My experience with theatre doesn't just come from being onstage or teaching. I also have extensive experience with directing and play-writing. I've also taught both of those subjects as well! For what I do, I love to teach others to do.

As a former Montessori teacher, I am adept at crafting lessons particular to each students' needs. I meet you at your level, and move ...

I first began acting 31 years ago and teaching in 2008. I was bitten by the theatre bug when I was only three years old and have been performing ever since. When I'm not up on the stage, I'm usually found behind the scenes directing, writing, consulting, or coaching. At 18 I attended the presti

Many years ago, I had the pleasure of TEACHING and directing my lovely Sarah in two different community musical theatre productions: "Cinderella" and of "Huckleberry Finn". Sarah's integrity and determination for learning her speaking parts and her vocal solos truly sparked the driving energy amongst the members of the entire cast and crew. Her enthusiastic approach and bubbly personality are to this day so contagious and positively affects everyone around her, like ripples in a pond. Sarah is now a super mom and inspiring teacher as she encourages her students to achieve their greatest thespian potential. I highly recommend Sarah as an ideal teacher, drama coach and acting director.

I used to have a massive struggle with acting. I started from square one. I was determined to become the best actor I possibly could. When my acting skills finally got to a high enough level, it took me to Musical Theatre, Theatre, Opera and occasionally Film. I have also directed Theatre here and there. I am versatile and knowledgeable and currently performing as an Opera singer. I am excited to work with new students!

Online Theater Acting Teacher

Hi friends! I'm a professional actor, director, and fight choreographer who has been working since I was ten years old. I left NYC two years ago after accepting a full-ride offer to earn my Master's degree in acting. I have one year left, and while I'm here, I am also teaching undergraduate acting. I'm formally trained in Stanislavski, Stella Adler, and Meisner, with training in many other methods as well, and I am able to work with you on whatever you would like, from basics, memorization, and diction all the way up to Meisner technique.

Because I started working when I was young, I love to teach kids as well. I spent three years on an international tour performing a one-woman show in elementary and middle schools, and I have led many high school workshops, so I love spending time with students of all ages.

Most importantly, if you work online with me, you will get to hang out with Belko, my one-year-old chihuahua. She's a better actor than all of us. I look forward to meeting you!

About Sarah

Hey friends! You're looking for acting lessons! That's amazing because being a professional actor means you are self-employed, and you have to be motivated to find your own work. By looking for a teacher, that's exactly what you're doing right now, meaning you already are living the life of an acto

She made it easy to break down the elements of Shakespearean acting (it's hard stuff!). Now I'm a lot more comfortable with its language & emotions, and it helps out with other areas of my performance as well!
Nadine
The best thing about Sarah is the enthusiasm she puts into every single lesson. She genuinely cares about my progress and where i want to be in my career. Because she has immersed herself in so many different aspects of acting, she is able to really offer a perspective from someone who knows the industry inside and out. If you want to become a more dynamic actor, I highly recommend working with Sarah if the opportunity arises. Thanks, Sarah!
Derek
Sarah made me look at the craft in a completely new way that opened up my possibilities. The process became less daunting, and I was able to truly connect with the character and text! Plus, Sarah is fun to work with! I CANNOT recommend her enough!

"I have had the privaledge of being around the most iconic talents ever in show biz because of my father Harvey Korman.So having heard Aubrey Sing it harkens me back fo my favorite singers Joanne Gleason Bernadette Peters and Eydie Gormes,Karen Carpenters.The best compliment I can give Aubrey is that she is a songstress.Thats a artists who can sing and tell a story with inflection in all the right places while she expresses her humanity through song.Like her idol Barbara Streisand she is just one exuisite artists that lives and breaths and embodies every song she sings.You would be hard pressed to study with anyone as polished and dedicated as Aubrey.I don't have a daughter but if I did I hope she ends up like Aubrey then I know what it is to have created a masterpiece.She is a second generation artists her father is also a very sublimely gifted artists Glenn Williams here in Vegas."

Tamika was absolutely wonderful in helping me calm my (obvuously) nervous self, and worked with what I naturally brought to the stage and highlighted my own attributes. By the time I had opening night, I felt more comfortable than presenting to a bunch of investors (which is my day job). Thank you again Tamika, for really helping me develop skills and traits for the acting stage even I didn't know I had in me! I loom forward to working with you again soon!"

She encouraged me to audition for the stage play "Why Does It Hurt So Bad?" and I made it in. She continued to work with me as an Artist Development teacher in the play. She really helped me as an actor and teaching me to take on the character I was portraying. It was amazing seeing myself grow as an actor and getting better during the whole process. I was able to put on a good performance because of her guidance and tutelage. I definitely recommend her."
