Overview

Stephanie has been singing and studying voice since she was a child, over 20 years! She holds a BFA from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. Stephanie has been lucky enough to study with some of the top teachers in the country and brings the experience she has gained directly to you!Stephanie is proud to share her student's vast array of musical successes.  From being cast on GLEE to being accepted into prestigous performing arts academies to conquering the Karaoke scene Stephanie's student's continue to motivate and inspire her!

*** Lesson Details ***
Music brings me immense joy, especially singing and I want the same thing for you!
We start each lesson with proper breathing technique, the cornerstone of all vocals. We move on to vocal exercises to condition the voice. Then we work on the songs that you are eager to sing!

I will use a piano when doing vocal warm ups and conditioning exercises. When working on songs I like to procure a recorded accompaniment. This frees me up to concentrate on listening to you sing, rather than my own playing. Students that play other instruments and accompany themselves when performing (such as a guitar) are encouraged to bring that instrument to their lessons.


*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio has piano, area for parents to wait

*** Specialties ***
I believe that the speaking voice and singing voice are non-exclusive and spend time working with breath control, proper breathing techniques and voice support for both spoken and singing voice lessons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Singing Made Fun for All Stephanie is an amazing singing teacher with a great attitude. The environment is always fun and positive with a relaxing feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stephanie is GREAT Stephanie was such a wonderful voice teacher! She constantly pushed me to my personal best in a very comfortable learning environment. She always managed to work with my changing schedule too :) She's the greatest! May 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Teacher with a Fun Personality and a Great Attitude Stephanie is also so much fun to work with. She makes you feel extremeley comfortable at each lesson and really helps you move forward to acheive your goal. She also knows a lot about music (especially Broadway) and is really fun to chat with. A great choice for older/adult students! May 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very relaxed, no pressure, reassuring, fun Stephanie is really great at creating space for you to learn and participate. I never feel self conscious about singing or doing the exercises, just free to give it a try and not afraid to mess up. She is really good about changing her instruction and tailoring it to how I am responding or what is going on with me that day. If I'm stuck on something for instance, she will switch the exercises so that I am really learning more about myself and my voice and how to feel and switch what I'm doing like if I'm forcing it or something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly recommend Stephanie is a very talented teacher. I made lots of progress in just my first few lessons in confidence and my voice. She has specific techniques that you can use right away and gives homework to do each week. I like how she has lots of exercises in her repetoire and keeps on top of her e-mails and messages. Highly recommend. November 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stephanie really taught me how to sing in front of others, which I have never had the courage to do before. I have gotten better after only approx. 7 lessons which I did not expect to be so shortly. She has given me the courage to learn how to play the guitar, write my own songs, and hopefully I can take my singing to a more professional level. I am very grateful for what I have learned :) July 28, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Patient, Encouraging & Effective Singing Teacher I've wanted to sing for years and finally decided to take some lessons. Stephanie was a great choice for me because she is a patient and nurturing teacher. Though I'm a total beginner, Stephanie is very encouraging and I really enjoy how she structures each lesson so there is a great balance between vocal exercises and actual practice of songs. I'm pleasantly surprised how quickly Stephanie has been able to help me boost my confidence and improve my technique. March 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent job with my 11 year old! Stephanie has worked with my 11 yr old daughter for the past couple months, helping her get ready for an audition. She taught her how to breathe, project & become confident in herself. Stephanie even picked out the perfect song for my daughter to sing. We think she nailed her audition! Thank you Stephanie!
