About Bebé S.

I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter, and recording artist. I graduated from Broward College with an Associates Degree in Music Technology and dual -majoring in Vocal Performance. My primary instruments are Voice and Piano, but I also play guitar and trumpet.

All of my students can expect to improve weekly in their technique and skill level. I teach students to release built up tension and apply fundamental techniques by relaxing and enjoying their time practicing or performing. I can help any student to sing or play with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano and voice for 4 years. I can teach students to excel in reading music, sight-reading, ear training, music theory, and performance and technique in not just classical music, but all genres of music.

As a professional recording artist I frequently take trips to Atlanta and New York for recording and meeting with record labels. I have performed along side bands such as We The Kings, Plaid Brixx, and I have many musical connections such as Jadyn Maria, Katy Perry, Tiyon Christian, D. Smith, and more. I don't only teach my students, I mentor them, create a lasting friendship and help them reach their full potential and level of excellence.

My personal passion is contemporary music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

I have enjoyed my classes with BeBe. She is very talented. She teaches a lot of material in a short period of time. She makes the classes fun and is an excellent teacher. I would highly recommend her as a music/voice teacher.

I love Bebé as an instructor. She is so patient and comforting. The lessons are not complicated but still push you toward becoming a better pianist. By the second lesson I was playing the C major scale with both hands with rhythm and proper fingering. I've already recommended her as an instructor to friends I know who are interested in piano & guitar. I plan on having Bebé as an instructor as long as we both have availability and hopefully that's for a while. I genuinely love it here!

Bebe is a fun person and Talented Teacher, Bebe knows how to takes the stress from the student and gives them the tools they need to succeed. I love going to Bebe's location and having my daughter get that one on one with her. My daughter was scared to have lesson because she was worried about being judged and Bebe helps them get over that. My daughter thought she was an Alto because everyone would tell her that. But as soon as she started going to Bebe she told her she was not she has more range then that and she is a Mezzo-Soprano. If you want a teacher who is friendly and supporting you need Bebe.. Thank you Bebe for everything you do...

Bebé is great, hands down, I have so much fun in every lesson and actually feel like I am growing as as singer. She takes the time to make sure that I understand each exercise and feel comfortable singing.

Fine. Didn’t fill lessons to fullest. Felt like exercises followed a regimen instead of doing exercises best for the student. Don’t think she fully listened to me singing.

I SUCK at singing and to be honest I thought that I would never be able to sing. I got tired of hiring singers for my music and woke up one day and said to myself that I would take lessons instead and after searching I had a resonating feeling with Bebe's personality and I was right. I have had some major improvements, those of you that think that you can't sing don't fret about it trust the process. I wanted to try out take lessons for a little bit and then call it a day but now I know that I will be sticking around because not only are the lessons helpful their super fun! Thank you, Bebe! You are awesome! <3

I am a 60 year old man and so, one can imagine my initial reluctance to take up singing lessons at this age. But after the first 2 sessions with Bebé, I knew I was in the right hands. She is every bit the professional that you can trust to do a great job. I was extremely impressed, not only with her amazing vocal talents, but also with her technical skills, knowledge and experience. Bebé assessed my abilities, and set to work quickly and efficiently, and that's where I feel she truly excels. Bebé was patient, took her time to understand my objectives and capabilities, and pushed me just enough to keep gaining my confidence. I only had 5 lessons at this point, and I can already hear and feel the progress. The classes were fun, but Bebé takes her work very seriously, as any true professional would. I'm looking forward to my next sessions.

Bebe really helped me build my voice. I came to him as a new singer and have already landed 4 leading roles in different musicals i’ve auditioned for. He follows a professional technique while still making it a fun and exciting experience. Highly recommend.

I have a great time working with Bebé. She’s awesome, patient, and fun. Each lesson is like recess, but I still learn so much every lesson. The best part about taking lessons with Bebé is that she does not rush through things and takes the time to make sure that you understand.
