Shaan is an LA hidden treasure for actors. My first on-tape audition with him was incredible and got me sent to producers for a large guest star! His approach to story and care for the actors instrument makes you feel safe and positive and focused. When I got off track with any negative thinking, he pulled me right back up and reminded me of story and character. He goes above and beyond what any coaching services will do for you and I've used many of the more "popular" (and extremely expensive) services before. Not many out there like him! PAGET KAGY

Shaan is more than just a great teacher.  He takes a personal interest in the success of each and every one of his students.  He truly wants everyone in his community to achieve their highest potential as professional actors. DUSTIN GREEN

I like Shaan because he's been around town, knows the business, is a working actor himself, has a good process for helping your work, and is a genuine person with a true heart for actors. He also strongly encourages and helps create an actor community with his monthly "family dinner nights" where everyone comes together from all his classes to break bread and connect. I highly recommend going and meeting him and checking out his cozy little class where you can learn, grow, and make steady progress toward your goal of being a regularly working actor.

In the seven months I've been studying with Shaan, my skill in the craft and momentum in the business have increased exponentially. Shaan demystifies both.  JED HENRY

I love how Shaan gives everybody in the class time and attention. His special way to be present, positive, generous, passionate, welcoming, intuitive, precise, honest…in one world: loving, awakes and stimulates in us similar qualities that echoes in our acting. Yes, he has love for the art of acting, teaching and for the artists. He creates a circle of trust between us that encourages us to bring forward that which makes us unique. I am very happy to be part of his class, beyond learning acting I enjoy a lot discovering unknown sides of myself and abilities that I could not imagine. YAZEMEENAH ROSSI

Starting to train with Shaan has been THE best decision I made since moving to LA.  He genuinely cares about his students' growth and their commitment to the craft.  He makes sure that you are always challenged so that you are always growing. I made strides in my craft that I didn't even know I was capable of making. SHIVANI BHAGWAN

I contacted Shaan after reading his book. He is not only an acting coach he is a mentor, and I strive to accomplish what he has achieved in this business. He is a complete package, casting, acting and business. Thank you Shaan for this amazing journey. SCOTT D GOLD

I just booked a recurring guest star on a cable show that I coached with Shaan on. He's got a great process with audition coaching and a lot of tools in his tool belt.  I've coached with him in-person and via Skype.  When we do Skype coaching, he records the takes so I have it afterwards to watch back, which has been very valuable.  He cares so much and I'm grateful to be able to work with him.

I love coaching with Shaan. He makes the process fun and gets the best work out of you. He is brilliant at making you tell a story the most truthful way possible and get you to book that job. Also, it helps that he is a working actor so he understands actors and their journey. It has been life changing in every way coaching with him! SHEILA SHAH

Every time I coach with Shaan the work is evident and the results are incomparable. His understanding of the writers work and translation to the actor is impressive. The main reason I keep returning, besides his professionalism, is the bond and friendship he brings to coaching- something that could be daunting but Shaan always makes it enjoyable. SYDNEY SCHAFER

Shaan is more than an acting coach -- he is a career development mentor.  As a successful working actor and casting professional himself, he has a unique perspective on the work we do that I have not found anywhere else in town (and I have sat in on a lot of other classes!).  The non-directorial and positive approach he brings is unparalleled.  Only work with Shaan if you're willing to work your butt off and grow in your craft in a positive environment.  It will be worth your time.
