So much of communication on stage, or in TV or film is done with body language, facial expressions, movements, actions, and voice to tell the story. A voice-over artist has to do it all with just her voice.

Acting – I have taught all kinds of acting, including Audition Skills, Shakespeare, Stage, Film & TV, Dramatic, Comedic, whatever. I also have quite a bit of experience performing in all those arenas. I have a relationship with one of the best management agencies in the area, so my students get fast-tracked with her.
Voice – Anyone can sing. If you want to and have always thought you couldn't, you will be delighted when I prove you wrong. Training for the voice is pretty much the same, whatever style you are interested in. Then I'll coach you in your chosen style and we'll pick songs you like.
Singing beautifully is not enough. I can't tell you how many times I heard in grad school "beautiful voices are a dime a dozen." I will teach you how to OWN the song. That's what keeps people coming back.
Speaking – Every public speaker I know has lost their voice at some point, but not from talking too much. It's because they don't know how to use their voice properly. Learn that, and you need never lose your voice to over-use. That's easy to teach.
Writing – I have been a professional writer and editor for over eight years, with many books, articles, posts, newsletters, etc. to my name. I use – and teach – practical grammar, not just correct grammar. I can also help you make your words more powerful.
There is too much to list here. Ask me anything.
I've been taking lessons with Susan Scher for about two months now. I can easily say I've been impressed at how much I've improved. I look forward to lessons every week. I feel that soon enough I'll be able to audition for roles in film and television. If you live in the Baltimore area and are interested in voice acting or any acting in general. Contact her and go, you won't be disappointed.+ Read More
I did not know what to expect when I signed up to take classes with Susan. I decided to take classes with her for two reasons: Her studio is not far from me and 2, the good reviews left by her clients. All I wanted was to learn the fundamentals and techniques about acting. Susan was excellent and very patient. She offered water in each lesson, which is also very kind. Her interpersonal connection brings a sense of comfort. Her studio is very neat and welcoming. I do not have regrets in my selections and I know you won't be disappointed too.+ Read More

She's a great teacher my daughter was shy at first and once she started understanding everything she felt confident and loved the class.
She is very educated in the acting field and I know I will learn a lot from her!
Enjoyed my lesson with Susan. She is very patient with me, and encourages me to continue when she observes my frustration.
Susan knows her stuff. One lesson was a good start.
I loved how she taught me so much in just one session. She gave me more confidence but she was still a reality check for me.
My son has done very well in his lessons with Susan. She's easy to work to, varies the content to keep it interesting, and overall a wonderful teacher.
I really like it. She is very easy to talk to. She is very practical and flexible with schedule.
My child absolutely loves taking acting lessons with Susan. She has been incredibly helpful in furthering his acting techniques, skills and talents for school theater roles and potentially a future career in this field. Since lesson 1, he was hooked!
