About Stephen

Hi, I'm Stephen. I am a Vocal Technician and Trainer, Singer-songwriter, Acting Coach, and Career Consultant. I've been teaching for 15 years and I'm here to help you build your voice and tap into your artistry. :)
I have been singing since I was 3, anything and everything from Michael Jackson to Elvis Presley to Luciano Pavarotti. Originally from Colorado, I studied music/theatre, as well as vocal pedagogy at The University of Colorado at Boulder, where I graduated with highest honors. I made my Broadway debut in The Phantom of the Opera at age 24. I also performed in Chess in concert as a f
eatured rock tenor soloist at the New Amsterdam Theatre on Broadway with Josh Groban. I have understudied and performed lead roles in the first AEA National Tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Whistle Down the Wind. Regionally, I have played many lead roles all over the United States in productions including Les Miserables, Miss Saigon, The Wild Party, and She Loves Me. Currently I am recording my first pop/rock/neo-soul EP, building a TIYA Community, and focusing on SAG-AFTRA TV/Film projects. Recently, I booked lead roles in 4 SAG short films and was called back for producers for a Series Regular for "The Knick," an episodic series being produced and directed by Steven Soderbergh. My specialty is building, strengthening, and conditioning voices to unleash your authentic vocal timbre. My clients range from singer-songwriters, news anchors, dancers, comedians, CEO's, actors, as well as karaoke enthusiasts, and (aspiring) Broadway performers. They have performed on television in Smash, Glee, and venues around NYC ranging from The Underground, Le Poisson Rouge, Drom, Cornelia Street Cafe, Arlene’s Grocery, to the Broadway productions of Ghost, Sister Act, Evita, Wicked, West Side Story, South Pacific, The Phantom of the Opera, and Rent to name a few. I was a "belter" when I was a kid, trained classically for 6 years, and my journey has led me to create my own unique method combining speech level singing with bel canto techniques. You will see/hear/feel immediate results. My passion is storytelling and songwriting, and especially pop/rock.

*** Lesson Details ***
We will always work on whatever you want. As a vocal technician/trainer I am like going to the gym for your voice. My exercises are safe, simple, and most importantly, I teach you how to practice correctly. You may use my time however you wish (Voice, Acting, or Artistic/Career guidance). Most sessions will usually be a combination of vocal strengthening/ conditioning, and then exploring/performing a song. I also can work with you on film scenes, theatre monologues and ACTing the song. The key is to TAP into your Artistry. (Trust the Awareness and Play).

*** Studio Equipment ***
Yamaha Clavinova YDP-142 88-Key Digital Piano with Bench Black

Yamaha FG700S Acoustic Guitar

Bose Wave Music System

For online lessons:

2013 MacBook Pro 13-inch: 2.4GHz
with Retina display

iPhone 5S

*** Specialties ***
The vocal training method is uniquely my own as it combines both Bel Canto and Speech Level Singing. Emphasis is on developing a relaxed, released, authentic vocal timbre to sing in any style. Concepts explained and explored in my masterclasses and private lessons include utilizing the mask, developing resonance, 2 instruments in 1, posture, breath management, vocal cord adduction, trigger phrases, vocal placement, ring, consistency, and much more.

Stephen is a very thorough singing teacher. After 5 lessons, I know so much more about singing than I even thought there was to it. I already feel like I improved a tremendous amount, and I have fun in his classes. My range increased, my breath management improved, and the quality of my voice is also much nicer. I can only recommend Stephen.

Meagan F.

Rego Park, NY

Acting allows you to discover your creativity and deepest self by exploring new expressions of emotions, language, physical movements, and relationships. We will delve into vocalization exercises to ensure healthy projection and diction, physical exercises for movement and expression, as well as building our memorization abilities. Most of the lesson is taught through games, except the monologue/dialogue portions which include in-depth analysis to achieve passionate and driven performances!

About Meagan

I absolutely love working with students to instill and encourage confidence and the joy of music. I graduated from school with a degree in Vocal Performance & Theater Performance. Not only have I performed in numerous musicals and stage productions, I've been able to sing solo, and in both small and large ensembles in nearly every state in the US and all over the world (including Austria, Germany, Canada, and Costa Rica). I have since moved on from performing because I love sharing my passion and enthusiasm for voice with my students! I have been teaching voice since my senior year of high sch
ool. After some pedagogy training in college, I moved on to teach several students out of my home studio in Baltimore and now in New York. I incorporate aspects of classical and contemporary music to make learning both beneficial and fun! I love making music and I hope to share the joy of singing with each student.

*I have returned from maternity leave and may need to have my baby present at the lesson (playing off to the side, of course).

Our daughter (6) started taking piano lessons with Meagan a few months ago and we have been very impressed with how things are going. Meagan is prompt, polite, patient, and kind. She knows how to explain musical concepts at a basic level for our daughter to make sure she understands and learns the foundations. We highly recommend her!

Jeremy K.

Brooklyn, NY

I have been teaching and coaching actors for 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

About Jeremy

Are you working on a part for a play or film and need assistance? If you are new to acting, I can teach you what it takes to be an actor and how to bring a character to life. Do you need to prepare for an audition? Do you want to learn about the business of acting? Script analysis? I can help.

If you have training or are a working actor, I can help take you to the next level.

I am a working actor, published playwright and award winning filmmaker. I graduated from the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts where I majored in drama. Currently, I a
m faculty member at Lee Strasberg Theater Institute in New York. I teach Method Acting, Acting for Camera, Improvisation as well as other classes. My students, both at the Institute and from private coaching, have appeared in independent stage and film productions, TV shows, commercials and Hollywood films.

Acting is the art of bringing a character to life. I use the Lee Strasberg Method, my original exercises and a fun and serious demeanor to help actors express themselves as artists and gain the confidence and skills they need in order to book acting jobs.

My book, "The Young Actor's Handbook", is scheduled to be published and available in all major bookstores and online in the spring. "The Young Actor's Handbook" ignites the beginning actor's creative soul with acting exercises, acting theory, writing exercises and insight into what it means to be an actor. This is a pragmatic manual that guides and informs the young actor, beginning actor, novice acting teacher or anyone who wants to understand acting.

"Jeremy Kruse's book, "The Young Actor’s Handbook", leads the young actor on the correct path. Jeremy is an experienced acting teacher who has broken down acting in an academic way while nurturing the soul of the actor. He understands the emotional aspects of good acting. I commend Jeremy and believe he has accomplished quite a feat in writing "The Young Actors Handbook."

Vincent D'Onofrio - actor, producer, and singer. He is known for his roles as Private Leonard Lawrence ("Gomer Pyle") in Stanley Kubrick's war film Full Metal Jacket (1987), Wilson Fisk in the Netflix series Daredevil, Edgar/the Bug in Men in Black (1997), and Detective Robert Goren in the crime television series Law & Order: Criminal Intent. He has also co-starred in The Judge (2014), Run All Night (2015), Jurassic World (2015) and The Magnificent Seven (2016).

Carolyn is truly an amazing person and acting coach. I was beginning to think that I was too old to pursue my passion of becoming an actor. However, after a few lessons with Carolyn I believe that age is truly just a number and as long as one is dedicated, believes in themselves and keeps there eye on the prize their is no cut off when it comes to attaining ones dreams. Carolyn takes pride in her work and will steer you in the right direction.
