As an adult taking vocal lessons for the first time, I was not sure what to expect from an instructor, from myself, or from the type of experience it would be overall.

Shelley was so easy to work with, and quickly put my nerves at ease by working to understand my goals, instilling confidence, and by helping me focus on my style of singing (not just the style of singers i like), and by using music that I was interested in.

Highly Recommend!

My daughter absolutely loves her acting lessons with Shelley. We thought we would just start with a few acting classes, but now it has been a few months and the classes are so enjoyable and helpful, and we our watching our daughter grow and shine in the art. Well worth the time and investment and we are so thankful we picked such a fabulous instructor.

I absolutely loved taking lessons from James. I was just coming off of a long break from acting when I found him, and I’m so thankful that I did. He gave me the confidence boost that I needed to push onward in my training. Since he has experience in the industry, he was able to tell me (truthfully) what I need to expect when my career takes off someday. That aside, we read through screenplays, did some accent work, improved a bit before every class, and talked about the power of positivity/confidence. I learned a little bit of everything from him. If you’re looking to get started on your path to an acting career, James is definitely your guy! He’ll do whatever he can to prepare you for your crazy journey through the industry.

I believe, wholeheartedly, that with the right teaching and encouragement, anyone can learn to become an actor. Both children and adult beginners will have a great time playing acting "games", (i.e. exercises) that encourage creativity and freedom of artistic expression.

"Shauna Kanter is a remarkable teacher. While I've been taking classes with her for a year, I learned more from her in the first two months--about how to layer my performance as an actor, using both voice and body--than I did at a previous acting school where I was for almost two years. She provides tons of feedback on monologue and scene work, which is grounded in a vast knowledge of technique and her experience as a director and actor. I've experienced her guidance for scenes and monolgues from Three Sisters, Orpheus Descending, Closer, and an online reading called Covid Pages (on YouTube), among others. What I've learned has helped my performances tremendously. Shauna clearly loves what she does--seeing acting as both a craft and a community affirming art. Take lessons from her!"

All the productions I have seen her direct have her distinct stamp. Not only is she a talented actress and singer in her own right but she is able to bring out the best in her students. I recommend her whole heartedly."

As a beginner he has really helped me learn to break down a script and understand what is going on. He teaches you how to set yourself apart from the crowd in an audition. I highly recommend Gabriel to anyone seeking to better their craft or begin acting!"
