Vocal Lessons

Stacy is an awesome teacher who brings lots of energy and knowledge to her lessons. My time with Stacy was short because of my own scheduling conflicts but if I had more time in a day I'd definately be taking more lessons with Stacy.

Great teacher, very friendly.

You can tell that Stacy loves what she's doing, and loves helping others. I started taking guitar lessons a little over a month ago and am amazed at how quickly I've improved. Last week we also started mixing in vocal lessons. I also appreciate that Stacy has been flexible with my schedule.

Amazing

I see Stacy as one of the best instructors around. I just had three lessons with Stacy and I have noticed big difference in the way I perform and controling my voice. Big progress in a very short time. I had so much fun learning.

Lovin my lessons...

Stacy is definitely knowledgeable about her voice training. She has brought a great world of change to my voice in just a few short weeks. We both are able to see that. She is clear, fun, and is always wanting to push me a little farther beyond my comfort zone, which I really appreciate! She's fantastic! I always look forward to my lesson!!

I found Stacy to be a good teacher and a overall pleasant person to be around. Unfortunately, my job has unexpectedly taken me out of town and, as a result, I cannot continue with Stacy at this time.
