About Me

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music Studio: Control Room and band room, parents can sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my student to have their own guitar if that is their instrument {unless previously arranged} A pencil and staff paper, a bottle of water if they are taking vocal lessons and a wiliness to learn.

*** Specialties ***
When it comes to teaching, I am pretty much no nonsense. Right away we will get started on exercises in technique, key signature changes, chord voicing, arpegiation and scales. My goal is to equip the student with a full arsenal to be able to play pieces as well as hear and improvise in a solo or band situation. Another goal is to make the lesson less like work and more like fun. I cover at least 6 different styles of playing. As a guitarist I focus more on chord voicing, improvisation and cover rock, jazz, classical, funk, flamenco and other related styles. On piano, I primarily teach the student how to read the grand staff and rhythm, time values with note drills. We begin to move into the circle of 5ths and 4ths and teach pieces in their related key signatures, technique inversions, block chords, arpegios, scales, also in each key signature. I want to facilitate the student with as much knowledge as possible in the shortest amount of time. I also try to focus on areas of concern.

About Me

I love teaching! ¬†How incredible it is to aid people in the joy of music, build their confidence, and help them sing with ease and comfort! I ‚¬Ä¬ôm a classical vocal performance graduate from Belmont University. I have sung all over the world, as a soloist with a mission‚¬Ä¬ôs organization The New America Singers. We sang in Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Philippines, South Korea, Russia and Germany, with our largest audience being over 6,000 people. I have performed several solo concerts in Germany, directed Children's Musicals, and have been teaching private voice at home studio, the YMCA in Brentwood, as well as at Ezell Harding. Teaching voice is something that I am passionate about. I had some vocal health issues when I was younger, but thankfully I had an incredible teacher who not only helped me fix them but also taught me how to help others. I do not teach children under the age of 12 because their voices are not developed enough, and so it can cause them more harm as they get older. Many of my vocal issues that I had to work though was because I started to young, and I do not want your kids to have to go through that. I have been teaching the past few years, and have enjoyed every minute of it. I am excited to be able to help students who wish to improve their vocal abilities. Whether it is for the pursuit of a singing career, correction of vocal issues, if you have always wanted to sing on key, or you just want to sound better, I can help you accomplish your goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Healthy singing is key.
- Proper breath support is the first key to singing well.
-We do an assortment of vocal exercises picked for the individual voice. These exercises help correct various vocal issues, strengthen quality of tone, widen your vocal range, and help warm up the voice as to not hurt anything when singing a song.
-I also have a Zoom H4 voice recorder to make high quality recordings of your voice, so you can learn from hearing yourself as well as having the exercises recorded for listening at home.
-I also teach sight singing to those who would like to learn.
-I will help you learn new songs, teach musical techniques, as well as stage presence.

The lessons are for you, if you want to work on something specific that is what we will do. I always have a plan for want to work on but I am flexible. The more work you do at home, the more work we can accomplish in our lesson. Most of all you need to have fun singing!

*** Studio Equipment ***
-Piano
-Music Stand
-CD Player
-Zoom H4 voice recorder
-Sound Level Meter

I have SD cards available to purchase, as well as SD card readers. If you would like to buy it somewhere else the SD card must be a 2GB card, as my recorder does not take anything higher.

*** Specialties ***
I originally pursued opera, so I enjoy classical voice technique. It has taught me how to use one's own body to amplify the voice. I enjoy working with people with vocal issues, such as vibrato problems, tension etc. I also love the theatrical side that Broadway brings, as well as opera. There are so many elements that makes a singer good.

Stephanie J. Murfreesboro, TN

Subjects Taught

Acting, Broadway Singing, Music Performance, Opera Voice, Singing, Speaking Voice

About Me

Stephanie J. graduated with a Masters of Art in Teaching in Music Education from Indiana University in 2002. She also has a Bachelor‚¬Ä¬ôs Degree in Vocal Performance from the University of West Florida. Stephanie enjoyed singing with The Indiana University Opera and The African American Choral Ensemble, during her graduate work. She has performed the role of Gretel in the opera Hansel and Gretel and has performed Mendelssohn‚¬Ä¬ôs Elijah at Carnegie Hall with vocal solos under the direction of world renowned baritone Sherill Milnes. Stephanie has performed in such musicals as Sweeney Todd, Hello Dolly, Showboat, Lil' Abner and many more. Her current students can be seen in lead roles in their high school productions, as well as in community theatre.

Stephanie is currently an adjunct professor in the Voice Department at the School of Music at Middle Tennessee State University and on the Voice Faculty at Cumberland University. She is a former music educator in Murfreesboro City Schools and Rutherford County Schools. Stephanie maintains a voice studio of 30 students year round in Murfreesboro, TN. She is a member and section leader in the International award-winning TuneTown Show Chorus, and a member of NATS the National Association of Teachers of Singing. She has taught all ages, from babies in Music with Mommie classes to the maturing voice. Stephanie feels blessed to be able to do what she loves on a daily basis as a profession. Her passion and joy is teaching her students how to properly use their voices so they can find the artist within.

*** Lesson Details ***
My approach to lessons is simple. Tension in the body equals tension in the voice and If you can speak it, you can sing it!

In voice lessons students learn to base singing not on what they hear, but on what they feel in the vocal tract and body. We cannot see this instrument, like we can a piano, or trumpet and so the technique must be based on what it feels like.

Why Should I Take Lessons from Stephanie?

Are you wanting to improve your vocal range? 100% of my students have gained up to an octave of range through lessons with me.

How about agility? The exercises I give my students will improve your agility to handle difficult vocal passages.

Freeing those notes in your upper register a problem? I know how to help "let go" of those notes that you avoid.

Do you have a noticeable "break"? The break or passaggio is the weakest part of the voice. I teach my students how to approach and sing through the passaggio by using mixed voice.

Whatever your "vocal issues" may be, I have the knowledge and experience to help you gain the voice you knew was already in you.

Other Benefits for taking lessons with Stephanie: You will come away with a knowledge of not only how to sing your exercises, that are tailored just for you but the reason why we sing them. This is not a studio where you will learn a bunch of songs. Yes, of course you will learn appropriate repertoire for your voice but you will learn to sing this repertoire correctly. We break it down and work it out! Learning is Messy! Convenience of paying for lessons online and being sent lesson notes to your email each week are just a few of the other benefits of lessons with Stephanie.

Students will also learn:

Technique: Body Alignment, Proper Breathing, Resonance, Placement, varied singing styles and the technique for each style from classical, musical theatre, or pop.

Musicianship: Music literary through music reading, sight singing, and aural skills, phrasing, creative music exploration.

Repertoire: Students will learn a broad selection of repertoire, Art Songs, Classical Pieces, Musical Theatre, and Foreign Language Songs.

Students are required to attend Studio Class.

Students will learn in a positive atmosphere with other students from my studio in Studio Classes. These classes will be once a quarter. There will be a fee for studio class. These classes are workshops for the students to become more prepared in performance for their current repertoire. At times I will bring in an outside coach/clinician to work with the students during studio classes.

Recital

Students participate in a Spring Recital.

*** Specialties ***
Specializing in musical theatre, classical voice using Italian methods of singing, such as bel canto style. Speech level singing, singing based on the speaking voice. A Capella styles, such as barbershop singing, and contemporary styles used in pop, rock, and Christian music.

About Me

I am passionate about Music and Music Education. It's rewarding for me to watch my students develop in their musical skill and enjoy making music more and more. My students range from the very young (4 years old) to school age children, to teens, and adults. My students benefit from my expertise in teaching Vocal and Piano music, my knowledge of Music Theory, and my encouraging teaching style. I have been involved in making music since I was a young child, and I have been teaching private students since I was a Music major at the University of Florida in 1982 when a fellow college student asked me to teach her voice lessons. I have a Music Education degree from the University of Florida; my major instrument was Voice, my minor was Piano. I taught as a public school music educator in Florida, California, and Tennessee between the years of 1983 to 1997. I taught private students after school in my classroom while I was a public school teacher, and from my home since 1997. My post-graduate continuing professional education includes Tennessee Arts Academy at Belmont University, Kodaly Pedagogy and Solfege Level 1 (vocal teaching techniques, do-re-mi, ear training), Orff-Schulwerk Music for Children Level 1 certification, Yamaha M.I.E. (Music In Education) Piano Lab certification. My professionalism and expertise are at your service. I will work together with you to insure an enjoyable and informative learning experience.

*** Lesson Details ***
A typical lesson in my studio would begin with a brief question/answer time with the student to learn how their week has gone, and how their music practice is progressing.

For PIANO LESSONS we begin with Technique including scales and dexterity exercises, then we play from the Lesson book and a Recital selection. I typically let the student play through the pieces they have prepared without interruption, then I call attention to corrections that need to be made, I demonstrate the correction, and then ask the student to play the piece again. After that we go over the Theory assignments, and do Ear Training exercises. I am comfortable teaching from a variety of different methods courses. The methods course is chosen according to the student's interest. I never require a piano student to continue using books that are not inspiring. There so many methods courses available, that a student may always be able to have methods books they LOVE.

In my SINGING LESSONS we also begin with a recap of the student's week. Then we continue with Warm Up exercises to prepare the student's voice for the lesson. Then we study Sight Singing and Solfege Singing (do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti-do) to increase the student's listening skills. After that the student sings their selections. Like I do in Piano lessons, I listen to the pieces they have prepared without interruption, then I call attention to corrections that need to be made, I demonstrate the correction, and then ask the student to sing the piece again. I am comfortable teaching many styles of vocal music including classical, Broadway, pop, rock, and Christian.

For MUSIC THEORY lessons, the study material is chosen according to the student's interest and age. Topics include notation, chord structure, chord progression, melodic structure, and harmony. I also incorporate Music Listening in the Music Theory lesson in order to learn from the masters in many styles of music. My Music Theory students will also have the opportunity to develop composition and songwriting skills if they desire.

My teaching style is structured and friendly, keeping the student's goals and interests at the forefront. I enjoy motivating students to reach their highest potential.
After 3 to 6 months in my studio my students will see improvement in their musical technique, ear training, music reading, notation, and knowledge. They will be preparing recital pieces for an upcoming performance. I provide two recital opportunities a year: in December, and in May. Most importantly, the student's love and appreciation of music will be growing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room: piano near front entryway, couch, loveseat, over-sized chair, dining room table, open space, end table with chair, parents can sit in on lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson books, the students should provide their instrument.
