He is very great at teaching my daughter to train her voice, not just sing one song well. We have been very pleased.

Stan is an outstanding teacher and has an amazing understanding of the human voice. I am so much more comfortable and expressive with my voice since working with him over the past year and a half. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone seeking to improve their abilities professionally.
