Private Acting Teacher

I have a Masters degree in Acting from the acclaimed Actors Studio Drama School in Manhattan, so I am well versed in most every acting technique; including Stanislavski, Strasberg, Meisner, Chekov, Hagen, Stella Adler, and beyond. I've taught acting to children, teens, and adults in the US and abroad since 2005 and my students are working! My main goal is to help you to develop your own set of tools for practicing the craft of acting, and to better understand your unique voice as an artist. Make sure to wear clothing you can move in during our sessions, and, most importantly, explore and just have fun!

She is truly excellent! Guided me through my audition and her input was very valuable. She is also very personable and reliable.

Our first lesson was productive. I'm looking forward to learning!
Todd B.
My background and career have never placed importance on speaking and looking objectively at myself, I wanted to improve that ability. Toya has been very patient and down to earth with me, as raw as I am, in helping me. After a few lessons I already feel confidence growing and enjoy her instruction.

Private Acting Teacher

Specializing in the beginner, intermediate and advanced level training. I love acting, performing, directing and teaching and have been involved with the acting world since age 6! Studied theater in high school and at NTSU, have a B.A. Speech/Communications and Spolin Improv technique with Nancy Fine of Second City.
I believe basic acting skills help you in every day life to be more poised, confident and help hone listening skills. It is a true delight for me to see the "light-bulb" go off when a student fully grasps a new concept or idea.
I customize sessions based on the individual.

Evelyn is a wonderful instructor! She is insightful with many years experience under her belt and she is passionate about acting. It’s great to have her support as I go into acting for opera at the collegiate level. I enjoy working with her and I highly recommend her!
Dale
Evelyn is one of the BEST directors I have worked for as an actor. Her level of care for actors was amazing! Throughout the process she helped guide and encourage the actors to bring out the best in themselves. She has a gift for acting and as a director she can relate to actors and understand what they are going through in a production. Thank you for Evelyn for everything!!

Melissa is a great teacher for kids starting out in piano.
Thu T.
Though this is only the first piano teacher we've ever worked with, Melissa has set a very high bar. Her passion for music really shines through during her lessons. She adapts her lesson plans to my 7 year old daughter and moving at a pace that keeps her engaged. She even helps her learn some songs outside the lessons that my daughter started learning on her own! If there are any scheduling conflicts, she keeps the line of communication open and we are always able to figure it out together. We couldn't be happier. If you read through her positive reviews...they're all true! It's only been a month, but we look forward to having her around for a long time.
Vi T.
We love her passion for music and teaching. She came well prepare. Melissa started my daughter off on a lesson that was fun and challenging. We are excited for the next one!

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.
Carin
I’ve been working with Shauna for the past 5 months, and in that time my voice has strengthened by leaps and bounds. She is an excellent teacher, and I feel lucky to be learning from her. Shauna is warm, insightful, and she has a wealth of knowledge and strategies that she utilizes to help her students. I highly recommend her.

Her approach to material helps to simplify the (seemingly) most complicated scenes. Her focus on naturalistic acting and "in the moment" spontaneity is exactly what every actor--at any level--needs to make their work real and full of life."
