SO helpful! I just had my first lesson, and now have a much better understanding of what I've *been doing with a particular monologue, versus what I *could be doing. I have way more peace than anxiety now. Shauna's voice is also so soothing.
Jamie
Shauna is wonderful and I can't say enough good things about her. She is the kind of teacher that is encouraging and patient. Who takes the time to help you discover your weaknesses so you can build and strengthen them. I can feel the difference her teaching has made for me each time I perform. I've learned being an actor isn't about being pretty or safe. It's about being open and free to let the material take you to places you could only imagine. Shauna teaches you to unlock those parts of yourself and explore the possibilities.
Andrew
Excellent, professional instruction. She has helped me make significant progress.

Nancy is kind and caring. She really takes the time to get to know you and your voice in order to craft a method that works best for you. I started out with no real experience and a bunch of bad habits, and she has been able to effortlessly work with that. I look forward to my lesson with her every week. I knew the moment I saw her profile that she stood out from the rest. Don't hesitate to give her a try!
Neena
She is honest and super helpful
Kimberly
Nancy is the best instructor i could have hoped for! I was very shy and insecure about my voice. She knew exactly how to work with me to sing confidently.
After a month of working with Nancy, i realized that with practice, i too can become a good singer. My goal is to have a mini concert for friends this summer. I’m confident that my lessons with Nancy will get me there

"The real deal. I have been acting all my life. Additionally, I have worked in Europe, the UK and the USA. When I moved to LA, I had the chance to study with Addison and it was absolutely worth it. Not only does he know how the industry really works but also, he has a deep understanding of character and script analysis. Addison is going to help you to discover the different layers that each role has. When it comes to auditions, working with Addison makes a difference. Believe me, you will be " ready to be ready" and focused. Finally, there is no doubt in my mind that Addison will help you to become the best actor you could possibly be and most importantly: to book acting jobs.

Not only that, but her background in classical theatre really sets her apart from other coaches I've worked with. She gets tone, she gets, comedy, she gets characters. Alex turned my audition from a flat/static piece to something with depth and charisma. Highly recommend."
