Hello! I am Stefanie, a full lyric soprano currently residing in the Chicago area. I hold a Master's in Vocal Performance from North Park University, have completed graduate coursework in Music Education and Choral Conducting at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and received my BA in Music from the University of Rochester. I have been teaching both as a private voice teacher and as a choral music educator and conductor for about 5 years both in the Chicago area and in the Champaign, IL area at churches, schools, and privately. I have worked with students of all ages and levels from 9 years old through older adults. The technique I teach is primarily based in bel canto (translates to "beautiful singing") technique. I truly believe that this technique encourages healthy vocal habits and production to ensure vocal longevity and endurance, regardless of the genre of music the student would like to perform.
