Teaching since:

I am a lifelong student of many subjects. My approach to teaching is one of patience and enthusiasm. I do my best to understand the student's learning style and teach accordingly.
I have been a professional actor, model, and singer for 10 years. I specialize in on-camera acting for TV commercials, industrial video, and host. Most of the modeling I've done is commercial print and live promotional modeling. I've taught group acting classes to kids ages 6-17, including on-camera auditioning, stage directions, script analysis, and business skills (headshot/resume, finding an agent, industry terms, etc.).
My singing experience includes pop, musical theatre, and jazz. I've coached students who believed they were hopeless, and they were pleased to discover their gifts and see growth!
I am a certified yoga instructor (RYT-200) and have taught for 3 years, both group classes and privately.
I minored in French in college and tutored beginning French.
My motto: Never stop learning!

French · In studio

Two great decisions I have made in the past 1 month:

a.) To seek french lessons in order to improve my performance at work since a portion of my job lands in french-speaking areas of the world.

b.) An even better decision was to book my lessons with Stacey. She is the best teacher I have had! While she is kind and patient, she goes the extra mile in order to make things stick. I other words, she does not let me get lazy but rather pushes me to succeed.

I am happy to report that in just under 30 days I have been equipped with the language skills that are "wowing" people. Just today, I was able to give a presentation (deliver an impressive opening statement) to a large client with a large audience. It landed and people were stunned. It was exhilarating!

In closing...STACEY IS THE BEST!

Stacey is a great instructor. She put me at ease- I was a little nervous about my first singing lesson ever. She knows her stuff and I think I will learn a lot from her. Looking forward to my next lesson!

Trying to sing in front of someone is very intimidating for me but Stacey made me feel comfortable from the start. She was very professional and the lesson took a very logical sequence that I could understand. In the past I took lessons from another teacher and my experience with Stacey far exceeded my previous experience and exceeded my expectations...with her help I may actually be able carry a tune!

Great instructor that makes the somewhat scary act of singing lessons seem stress-free. Great technical information and tips and exercises to do as homework.

I am a high school choir student needing some help with my pitch, tone and singing confidence. Stacey has been a perfect fit for me. She relates well to my personality and what I am working on currently in choir. I look forward to attending my voice lesson each week!

Stacey is very knowledgable on the subject, strong teaching and listening ability, and multi-instrumental with the ability to play piano during lessons. Would recommend highly.

Stacey is very encouraging and starts where the student is. In my case, that is at the lowest beginner level. I look forward to working with her.

Stacey from the very beginning was bright eyed, attentive, present and matched my enthusiasm exactly. I had a wonderful first lesson and cannot wait for next week!

Stacey is incredible! I have been in love with the arts ever since I was little but was always too shy to put myself out there and study music and theater. Stacey really helped me reach out of my comfort zone and pushed me to become the best actress I can be. I felt very comfortable in all of our lessons and she is one of the only people in my life who encourages me to pursue my dreams. Every hour we spent together I learned more about the world of acting and how to audition for roles and find an agent. I highly recommend her!

She's amazing! I feel she truly cares about my voice and wants to help my journey as a singer and performer. She explains things so well, it makes singing and music in general easier to understand from a technical perspective. She's also auch a kind person, easy to connect with, so I feel very comfortable singing in front of her! I HIGHLY recommend Stacy!

I practiced yoga at a studio where Stacey taught. I should mention I consider myself a beginner and not very yoga savy. She's an excellent teacher. Her technique is simple and easy to follow. Her classes were never the same or boring. She always introduced some new pose and made our class a fun workout. She's attentive to the variety of levels of her students. I always looked forward to yoga practice and highly recommend her!

Stacie is a fantastic yoga instructor for all ages! I have taken her classes in studio and in my home. I had her teach a class for my 11 year daughter and her cousins and they loved it! She taught them yoga while building their self esteem. If you are thinking about starting yoga, don't hesitate, Stacie is the instructor for you!

Stacey is an AMAZING yoga instructor who truly cares for her students and all aspects of their practice and well-being. She took the time to answer all of my questions. I would highly recommend her for any classes or individual instruction.

Stacey makes learning easy. It's terrifying to take singing lessons when you've never sung in front of anyone in your entire life, she put me at ease and ignored the fact that I was completely embarrassed and encouraged me and made me feel like I was doing a great job. Stacey is very good at instructing, very knowledgeable and I had a blast.

I have been taking Yoga lessons with Stacey for several years now, and she is by far the most helpful teacher I have known. She puts a great deal of attention to your own goals, instead of imposing her own agenda.
