Singing is a calling for me and has been since the age of five when I used our family fireplace as my stage (when it wasn't lit!) While pursuing music studies at Ithaca College where I studied voice with Patrice Pastore and Vocal Jazz Improv with Steve Brown. My professional life as a vocalist has allowed me to explore a variety of vocal styles from classical, jazz, rock and R&B. Recently I have performed with WoodyGeissman (formerly of the Del Fuegos), Ken Shano, John Funkhouser and Victor Belanger
*** Lesson Details ***
I will teach you first and foremost how to relax your body so that you are able to use it as a vessel to enhance your natural sound. You will learn breathing techniques that will serve to boost and promote a healthy sound. We will also learn a bit about ear training and harmony. Most importantly, we will find a safe place inside yourself where imagination can thus play a key role in forming your artistry as a vocalist. We will not be afraid to explore. It is my hope that you will sing and soar like a bird.

Excellent instructor! Very professional.
Great Singing Experience
Shauna is a very talented singer/teacher. She focuses on her student and builds up self-awareness and singing confidence. The singing studio inside Shauna's house is sunny and cozy. It creates a positive atmosphere during lessons. Singing lessons with Shauna are very therapeutic. Shauna puts a great emphasis on not just singing, but singing with your heart and soul. I definitely recommend Shauna as a teacher to anyone who wants to take singing classes.
Shauna makes singing a fun experience. I enjoy the lessons and always leave them feeling energized. I never realized how much goes into using your voice effectively until I started taking lessons. I highly recommend her as a teacher.
Shauna is an amazing teacher! She has a gentle but firm approach to teaching and I found that after a few short weeks I was able to see the results. She really knows her stuff!
