VOICE FOR SINGERS, SPEAKERS & ACTORS: You'll learn sequential detailed exercises that free and strengthen your voice. You'll understand how your instrument works, what parts of your voice are blocked and what to do about that. You'll be able to combine your emotional life on your voice without tension and blockages. You'll learn how to approach and perform scripts, text and songs in preparation for audition and performance. And, you'll experience the JOY of using your voice.

You will learn how to utilize your breath, proper placement and build vocal power. You'll master specific exercises that unlock tension blocks in each part of your musculature as you developing expressiveness, resonance and enjoy the individuality of your free voice. If you practice you'll feel result after two weeks!

I teach all styles and specialize in auditions. After working with me I want my students to "own" their individual vocal methods and styles, expressing the essence of every song and script.

I’m about 5 or 6 lessons deep with Shauna and as a lifelong singer, she’s already helped immensely with correcting some bad habits I never realized I had — which is making for better performance with less effort! Highly recommended teacher, works at your pace, and the bonus is the breathing exercises she’s led me through each lesson, which completely change my day and are incredibly relaxing. Thanks so much Shauna!!
Mia
I am about to enter high school and I wanted to improve my acting skills in preparation for my goal to perform in school plays. I came to Shauna to learn acting techniques and skills to improve my acting abilities. I learned so much from Shauna. I looked forward to my weekly acting lessons and the preparation that went into each lesson. Shauna helped me feel at ease, even when doing something new and challenging. She encouraged me to reach outside my comfort zone and the exercises helped me really understand acting. This has been a great experience and I look forward to working with Shauna in the future!
Jon
Easily the best voice teacher I've had. I took a break for a long time from singing, and so it's really been starting from scratch. Shauna is an incredible teacher in her ability to not only explain the mechanics of singing, but also tie in the mental pieces as well. I've been working with her for a few months by now, and very excited to see what kind of progress is made as we keep working together.

Taking lessons with me will begin with a conversation about your goals for taking lessons on your instrument. Your goals, plus my five years of professional teaching experience will help me craft a plan for our lessons together. I adjust around the needs of the student. So if I detect that you learn best in a certain way but our plan doesn't exactly leave room for it, we will adjust as we go until we get it right!

Megumi
He is a well trained musician with a lot of patience, which for our lessons went a long way. He is quick to help you find the right correction to technique, and will always cater to your personal needs. His lessons work well even online, as he is able to succinctly verbalize what and how something to be worked on. I highly recommend him as a teacher!
Julia!
Carl Gardner is an A1 bassoonist. Over the past year and few months he’s improved everything about my playing, technically and musically, and helped me achieve goals I previously thought were impossible. His reeds are immaculate! 5/5 stars would recommend him to any bassoonist I meet.
Amy
Social distancing will not interfere with solo competition! Carl made certain that my daughter did not miss a lesson by proactively finding a way to have one online. Although she prefers to be taught in person, this has definitely allayed her fears of not having her solo polished and ready for competition!

Have you ever had the chills listening to your favorite song? Have you ever wanted to write music that meant something to you? In my lessons, I work with my students, no matter their pre-existing background knowledge, to understand their own heart-music, and how to make music that communicates their own thoughts more effectively. I have experience working with musical ensembles of many different shapes and sizes, as well as the study of the anthropological meaning of music and art in general. In taking lessons, I hope all of my students grow to become better musicians and more thoughtful people, learning not only about music, but their own perception of music.

"Perfect teacher, perfect venue!

Desiree Soteres is the perfect vocal teacher for students of all ages. She is has an excellent performance, as well as academic, background. She is patient and knows how to draw the best out of her students.

Desiree's studio is as fine as any you could possibly find in the most professional of settings and far exceeded my expectations. In addition to this, the location is VERY safe and has easy access to public transportation. Parking is also easily found on its quiet, tree-lined street.

Choose this teacher and her studio with complete confidence!"

"Grant quickly recognized my level of understanding with chord movement (beginner to intermediate) and we analyzed a song together that will help me recognize chord motion in other songs. This will allow greater chord pattern recognition, and therefore memorization should come easier - which I really want to happen!
This is only my first lesson with Grant, so I likely won't write another review until I've had a few more."
