Private Singing Teacher

I am an experienced musician and performer with a variety of teaching skills gained over 20 years of study and action. Lessons in my studio are about so much more than just learning to sing a song or write music. Students are instilled with business knowledge, work ethic, and confidence so that they can truly accomplish whatever they set their minds to. We go deep and focus on how to develop new mental and physical habits that can help the student better express his/herself. We work hard on a curriculum that is specifically catered to the student's needs, and of course, is fun too!

I've worked with students from ages 6-65, with varying backgrounds and interests. From complete beginners to professional performing artists. All students are guaranteed to see improvement in their technical skills within the first month of lessons. Let's do this!

Impressive. Stephanie is an adept voice teacher that boosted my vocals (and confidence) almost instantly. I cannot recommend her enough. After just 5 lessons, she had me singing my favorite songs. Now, in my 3rd month she has me using vocal techniques and singing songs I never dreamed I’d sing. I thought it would take years. And, she is super nice…and patient with me.
Her instruction has me more in tune with my guitar, and now I can play thousands of songs—singing anything my heart desires. Her personalized vocal training plan for me has even improved my piano skills and knowledge of music theory. She easily transformed me from beginner to intermediate, and we did it all in less than 3 hours a week. This is progress!
Please don’t wait like I did. Sign up for a few lessons with her and hear your “true” voice. I’m so very glad I did.
Thanks Stephanie! ¡Eres exactamente lo que necesitaba!!

Stephanie is such an amazing vocal coach. Her instructions are very clear and concise which makes it very easy for me to understand and comprehend my mistakes. In just the span of a month and a week I am able to see the progress i've made through Stephanie's teaching. Stephanie also demonstrates her enthusiasm of wanting to help others improve which makes the lessons all the more better. She is definitely a go-to if you want to improve musically!
Armin
Stephanie has been everything I ever wanted and more in vocal coach. She makes it so comfortable for me to find my true singing voice and continuously helps me improve every time I meet with her. Her ears are so trained to heard what I'm doing right or wrong and communicates really well on explaining what I should do or not do to sing correctly which for me is key. Besides the in person lessons she's also helpful with sending back feedback when I send over my voice notes from my phone.

I've always had an interest in music, but never had any formal training. Laurel's tutelage has taken me from an absolute novice who could barely plink out a few notes to being able to read and play along with sheet music. She's employs a very collaborative style of teaching wherein we work together to identify the kinds of music I want to play, and make regularly progress towards reaching my goals. It's been a fantastic experience.
Kevin
I decided to wait until middle age to begin taking piano lessons so that my brain would be as resistant as possible to learning.

I'm glad I found a teacher as patient, friendly and knowledgable as Laurel. I've been taking lessons with her for almost a year. She tailors the sessions to my spooky interests and encourages me to push my abilities.

When we began I had barely touched a piano in my life. Now I'm able to read sheet music, recognize relative pitches and play a list of my favorite songs with independent hand movement.

I'd recommend Laurel to anyone who wants to learn piano regardless of age or skill level.
Ritu
Laurel has been my kid's piano teacher for a little over four years now. My kids absolutely love her, and I think that is what makes the difference because I want my kids to enjoy taking lessons. Laurel is very knowledgeable and patient. She makes sure students learn both reading music and playing by ear. My kids have come a long way with reading music and playing the piano, and I think a big reason is because of Laurel.

"Cara is fantastic! She is very encouraging and gives easy to understand direction. Whenever I'm having an issue I can't quite figure out how to fix ,Cara 100% of the time has the answer. I've learned how many things can affect the voice and how to deal with any issues. She's super easy to get along with and I feel very comfortable with her. Every lesson I walk away with either a new bit of information I can use or a much stronger grip and understanding on a skill I already had."
