After a devastating childhood experience singing in the church choir, my voice fell silent for the next 40 years. Every time I tried to sing, I was the brunt of family jokes.As time passed, my fear of singing, especially in public, only grew. Tired of being gripped by fear, I faced it head-on and began voice lessons with Shondra.
Within two months, she had me on stage in her church singing a solo and now I sing weekly in that church choir. My greatest fear has been transformed into one of my enjoyable past times. As for those critical family members, I shocked them all with the surprise performance at my daughter’s wedding in Hawaii singing Over the Rainbow while playing ukulele! Now we all sing and play music every time we get together!"

"I worked under Shondra's excellent guidance for five years, and what a tremendous experience it was. She laid the groundwork for me when I started with her at age ten, and the lessons remain in my hear to this day! I'm now 22 yrs. old and acting professionally in Los Angeles! Over the course of those five years Shondra coached me on monologue development, voice over work, improv,
improv, stage presence, and even breathing technique. Not only does she teach about the craft, but also about the business side and how to handle everything that comes with being a working artist. It was a fantastic crash course and completely opened my eyes to the world of performing. It's one thing to have a great coach, but Shondra has been and still is a very talented WORKING actor herself and so she is constantly bringing new ideas to her teaching. Her energy is electric and being taught by her is so much fun. I truly recommend her to any aspiring artist."
Jule Johnson, Working Actor in Los Angeles
