Stephanie is a charismatic, fun, and inspiring teacher. She was kind enough to accommodate my request to have a special vocal lesson with my wife for her birthday. She patiently worked with both of us and adjusted her instruction based on both of our skill levels. We went to her very cozy studio and worked on breath techniques. It is clear that she is very skilled in vocal technique, and we look forward to learning more from her.
I decided to take vocal coaching with Stephanie focused on improving my business communication skills in a professional business environment - she has been a great help with practical exercises to own the stage on my presentations at work - I definitely recommend her work as a vocal teacher.
Stephanie is a fantastic teacher. Just after one lesson I’m thinking about my voice and singing differently and she’s gotten me excited to continue singing and working with her. She’s extremely knowledgeable and worked to find adaptations and solutions to my issues and concerns very quickly.
