“I can honestly say that Shane Ann’s Voice and Speech Program is directly responsible for changing my life both professionally and personally. I have studied with many voice teachers throughout the years; and I can confidently say that Shane Ann is the best. She is the only teacher that I have taken from where I have learned very practical and tangible tools that I use on a daily basis that has given me the necessary vocal skills I need to work in theater. She has also helped me to find and recognize my own voice.
Ever since taking her program, I have found in my personal life that people are able to understand me better in conversation. The things I have learned from Shane Ann are lessons that I will use for the rest of my life. I compare every teacher’s method of teaching -voice and acting- to Shane Ann because she is what every teacher should be. Her passion is teaching. She really listens and adapts to the needs of her students while maintaining her own structured curriculum. She makes language, speech, and voice fun. And, she is a graceful human being. She is truly a Master Teacher.” -Phil Estrera
