Stephanie truly caters to making the most of her student's talent. My 11-year-old daughter has been taking lessons from her for about a year and a half and has developed tremendously. Stephanie teaches towards the student's interests and immensely helps in actual performances. There is analysis and breakdown of not just notes in the songs but also the feelings and facial expressions that enhance the performance. My daughter never feels unprepared for any singing performance big or small. My child has been empowered to go for any school auditions with the confidence Stephanie continually helps to build. More importantly, Stephanie develops a great rapport with her students that helps them feel very much at ease with the learning process. Very highly recommended!

Stephanie is truly a gem. I feel like I'm growing in a different way then before with her vocal lessons. She really takes the time to go through a song and doesn't rush you and I really feel myself learning new technics. I'm so happy to have her on my side to learn and I can't wait to see what's next.

Stephanie is an absolutely wonderful teacher. Not only is she a delight to be around, she's completely invested in your goals from the beginning.

Don't let Stephanie's bubbly personality fool you--there's no slacking in her lessons. It's worth it for the progress, especially since Stephanie is right there as your #1 cheerleader.

Stephanie will work with you and adjust her teaching style according to your needs. She explains technique in different ways until it clicks for you, and then she reminds you with the cues you find most helpful. Everybody learns differently, so a flexible teaching style like Stephanie's makes a huge difference in a lesson's effectiveness.

I've already recommended Stephanie to several of my friends who might be interested in singing lessons. Whatever the subject, I'm confident that Stephanie will give you the push you need toward reaching your goals.

My 10 year old daughter has been taking voice lessons with Stephanie for the past year and is absolutely loving it. In December she performed in the music recital and did amazing thanks to Stephanie's wonderful coaching. Stephanie is very encouraging and makes the lessons fun but is also stern when need be. My daughter looks forward to her lesson every week. I also love how Stephanie gets to know her students and encourages them in other activities they do. She came to my daughters ice skating performance to cheer her on and it meant the world to my daughter. We are sooo glad to have her as our daughters voice instructor and look forward to another amazing year.

Stephanie gave voice lessons to my daughter. She was terrific. Not only was she kind and encouraging, but she also challenged her. Stephanie taught my daughter various exercises to improve her breathing and range. She prepared her for a successful solo. She's GREAT!!

Stephanie is an incredibly trained singer, that is willing to share her insights with her students and tailor lessons to meet your needs. She went over the basics and focused on building the breath, but also dug in with me to help me uncover my voice. She was efficient, incredibly reasonably priced and lovely to bat. Anyone would be lucky to have her for private lessons. I look forward to growing my voice with her.
