Stephen H.

New York, NY

All ages/levels welcome.

Focus is on truthful spontaneity, emotional connection, relaxation and ease, auditioning, and scene study.

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.

I booked my first 3 shows!

I started my vocal journey with Stephen just about two years ago, from scratch. Under his professional guidance, I have already landed my first 3 regional theater shows, AND my first major role of Val in "A Chorus Line"! Stephen's lessons are always fun, efficient, and he has a keen sense on how to best help me in my professional growth. As a dancer who sings, I look forward to seeing what lies ahead in my vocal training and career!

I thought he was fantastic, absolutely fantastic. He answered a lot of my questions. He had an easy going manner that made me feel comfortable and right at home. He gave me a lot of information I didn't even think to ask. Also told me things that he expects from me that would benefit me.

Dr. Merkel is the first tutor we have come across that is honest, forthright and actually TEACHES my daughter what she needs to know to reach her goals. He doesn't just tell her what he thinks she wants to hear to get her to come back next week. He's the real deal. He is a gentle corrector while being stern enough to instill what is necessary to succeed. The difference in her after four weeks with the Doc is amazing when compared to the last EIGHT YEARS she has been playing without his tutelage. We cannot say enough about him at this point and are thankful to have found such an expert!
