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
Mike
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!

Having been on stage for countless productions of all varieties (operas, musicals, straight plays) I know that acting ability can never be over-emphasized. It can be the pivotal difference between an alright performance and a fantastic performance! Let's get you a monologue and work on your acting chops!

I’ve been taking lessons from Elizabeth for a few months now - I had done voice lessons growing up and am now starting to get back into singing. She has been very helpful, and I really feel like I’ve been improving quickly! She’s very knowledgeable about vocal technique and has been great about helping me strengthen my weak spots and break bad habits.
Judit
Elizabeth is a very nice and competent vocal trainer. She always encourages me to try new exercises that help me a lot to improve my singing skills. I also feel very comfortable taking classes with her, and I think that one of the basic things for me when it comes to learn how to sing, a nice atmosphere is necessary to grow faster. She is also helping me with my English pronunciation. I would definitely recommend her.
Nadine Z.
Elizabeth is an amazing tutor. She is very friendly and funny and makes you feel comfortable doing all kinds of exercise. She collaborated with me on what I wanted/needed to work on most. She helped me improve singing a song that I chose through many elaborated techniques. I learned a lot even though I only took two lessons (because I left the country after that).

I tailor each lesson to the actor. I create a safe space to play and learn. I empower and uplift each student so they approach the work with excitement instead of fear. Together, we create realistic goals for the actor's career. We may work on auditions, self tapes, scenes, anything and everything the actor is struggling with.

I help each student analyze the script so they can make strong choices that are unique to their acting talents.

Boleslavsky and Strasburg techniques combined with British Classical School. -as the result of my own training. We begin with training of the body for the ability to be relaxed and ready for anything, working in a chair in the Lee Strasburg system, releasing tensions and assessing the difference and working week by week on the sense memory exercises to build up the strength of imagination and elemental response and creativity. We also work with theatre games as well as analytical techniques.

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.

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.

Top 5 Wildest Method Acting Techniques in Hollywood History

If you've ever watched an actor disappear into their role, shedding genuine tears or adopting mannerisms that aren't their own, then you've seen method acting techniques in action. Most people think of this approach as "becoming a character," and some actors do take that literally, pretending to actually be the person they're playing.  Method acting is taught everywhere from Hollywood to Broadway. But a few notable actors are well-known for taking it to award-winning extremes, making enormous …
