I've been teaching acting for several years and my students have gone on to pursue film, perform in community and school productions, gotten into college programs, and pursue careers in acting. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to perform a monologue and as time goes on you'll have a full repertoire of monologues and skills ready to go! I love working with students of all ages and experience levels, and I can't wait to meet you!

I was a Theater Arts major at Trinity University where I took part in several productions, including Cabaret, Trojan Women, Chemin de Fer and Die Fledermaus. AT San Antonio Little Theater I performed in No, No, Nanette and Philemon. As a student at UTSA, I performed in Trial by Jury, Boris Godunov, Iolanthe and the Madrigal Christmas Dinners. I was hired by UTSA as a paid performer in the Madrigal Christmas dinners from 1984 to 1989. From 1989 to 1995 I taught Music and Drama at Converse Elementary. In the 1990's I performed in The Magic Flute and Don Giovanni as part of the San Antonio Festival. I have done freelance work over the years as a performer for special events. As an elementary music teacher and secondary choir teacher, I have produced and directed numerous programs and musicals. I have taught acting and public speaking to a number of students.

SO helpful! I just had my first lesson, and now have a much better understanding of what I've *been doing with a particular monologue, versus what I *could be doing. I have way more peace than anxiety now. Shauna's voice is also so soothing.
Jamie
Shauna is wonderful and I can't say enough good things about her. She is the kind of teacher that is encouraging and patient. Who takes the time to help you discover your weaknesses so you can build and strengthen them. I can feel the difference her teaching has made for me each time I perform. I've learned being an actor isn't about being pretty or safe. It's about being open and free to let the material take you to places you could only imagine. Shauna teaches you to unlock those parts of yourself and explore the possibilities.
Andrew
Excellent, professional instruction. She has helped me make significant progress.

As a professional actor, director, and coach with more than a decade of experience in the acting world I'd love to help you bring your skills to the next level, nail your next audition, and bring your favorite roles to life on stage and on screen. I'm an acting coach in Phoenix and I’ve worked with actors and singers of all ages for many years. I currently direct musicals and plays throughout the valley along with regularly coaching actors and singers. I've been featured on MTV and worked in a variety of live theater and film/TV/podcast projects. Recently I was a Quarter-Finalist for the Grammy Award for Educator of the Year.

Whether you want to work on monologues, scene work, prepare for auditions, develop your voice, improve facial/hand/physical gestures, or all of the above, I'd be happy to work with you to develop your passion for acting.

Topher was a great coach for my child. He always had fun at lessons and his voice got so much better, his confidence also greatly improved. He's started auditioning for musicals at his school and just got his first lead role!

Stella loves lessons with Mr. Topher. I wasn't sure if online lessons would be the right fit for us but now that school is shut down it's ended up being a blessing! She sang for her school talent show this year and sounded so beautiful, thanks Mr Topher!

"I went through the list of tutors in this site and thankfully found the perfect match for my daughter. Shauna has been a 'breathe of fresh air' since my daughter started acting training with her. Even though our sessions have only been online thus far, her presence and excellent quality of teaching can be felt as if she is sitting right next to her. My daughter loves her and she has really been able to find 'her voice' and bring out the best in her as she prepares for her High School Auditions. Shauna is not only qualified to do the job but brings to her skill set a humanistic side that really makes her student want to learn and do better. I would give ten stars if I could!!!
I wouldn't recommend anyone else to help your child perfect and master their craft."

"I had the great good fortune to hear about Shauna last year and have been taking an acting class with her on Zoom since then. She works with all levels and has a keen eye, kind heart, and gentle way of bringing every level of actor to a deeper, genuine way of expression with layer upon layer of development of character. Her classes have also included a wide range of exercises to connect us with our voice and body, something I had not had the benefit of getting in other scene study classes and workshops. I'm looking forward to studying with her in person. I wish I'd have found her sooner!"
