Absolutely wonderful! I have been taking lessons from Sandra for over a year now and always look forward to it. She is very knowledgeable and sets up a comfortable atmosphere. I have learned so much and couldn't thank her enough.
Rivkah
I've been seeing Sandra for 7 years and I consistently look forward to my lesson every week. I have seen myself improve tremendously in my singing, acting, and sight-reading. Sandra provides an atmosphere of serious learning in which I have been taught how to control by voice, but she is also very personable and always up for a fun chat. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher!
Linda
Fantastic teacher. I learned so much more in a short time with Sandra than I learned with all the other voice trainers I have had through the years. Her method is rewarding.

I have been teaching this subject in combination with singing. Many students forget what they are singing about because there is such an emphasis on technique. However, our ultimate goal as performers is to tell a story. One must react to the music or text as they are portraying a character in a story.

Shaunette is truly patient and understanding. Considering I’m not difficult to work with but I certainly am not the easiest person to work with. I always feel very comfortable and confident with Shaunette and I know it can only go up from here.

Shaunette’s online acting sessions are so detailed and focused. I love how she isn’t afraid to pinpoint my weak areas and challenge me to fine-tune my skills. Her notes and feedback are spot on and I feel like I am making strides towards maximizing my potential. I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking guidance for acting/drama.

"Molly was the perfect choice for my daughter, who was preparing to audition for an academy of arts high school. Molly was so full of enthusiasm and love for her craft, and her energy is contagious. She was able to put my daughter at ease, assist her in memorization of her monologue, prepare her for improvisation and even have her some rudimentary vocal training. Her ability to encourage my daughters dramatic choices while gently guiding her and putting her completely at ease was magnificent. More importantly, she made everything FUN! Her work with my daughter was successful, and my daughter was able to audition with confidence and poise. Thanks to Molly, my daughter was accepted into the Academy of Arts and is on her way to an exciting high school career. Thanks, Molly!!!!!"
