Teaching since:
June 2006

I have been singing and studying voice for over 25 years since I was a child! I hold a BFA from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. I have been lucky enough to study with some of the top teachers in the country and now I bring the experience I have gained directly to you!
I am proud to share my student's vast array of musical successes. From being cast on GLEE to being accepted into prestigious performing arts academies to conquering the Karaoke scene, my students continue to motivate and inspire me.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music brings me immense joy, especially singing and I want the same thing for you!
We start each lesson with proper breathing technique, the cornerstone of all vocals. We move on to vocal exercises to condition the voice. Then we work on the songs that you are eager to sing!

I will use a piano when doing vocal warm ups and conditioning exercises. Students that play other instruments and accompany themselves when performing (such as a guitar) are encouraged to bring that instrument to their lessons.


*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio has piano, area for parents to wait

*** Specialties ***
We will work on proper breath technique, vocal conditioning, resonance, identifying and expanding your range, note sustain, power and vocal support. I will customize every lesson to suit your needs. With proper breathing and vocal technique under your belt you can sing any style of music you love, sing to a roomful of people and feel your confidence grow!

Stephanie is always kind, always supportive, always encouraging, and most importantly, she always knows exactly how to challenge me. I've been taking lessons from her for over two years now. Since the first lesson, my range has expanded and I've grown more confident in my ability--especially in trying out new styles/genres. It's an added bonus that she's flexible with my busy and ever-changing schedule! I would highly recommend her to students of all levels.

Stephanie is an AMAZING vocal coach. Her approach is so tailored to me as an individual singer, and she is always incredibly supportive as she motivates me to work my hardest. Stephanie has helped my voice grow tremendously, expanding my range both from the bottom and the top. She has also helped me work on important dynamics of my singing, preparing me for various auditions and performances. I look forward to every lesson, as I know I am getting the best training and an opportunity to spend time with a kind, hilarious, and amazing person!

Stephanie is a wonderful teacher with the most positive attitude! I've been singing with her for over a year now, and I can really see the growth I've accomplished under her careful guidance . She has great understanding of all the different styles of music that I like to sing. Most importantly, she makes me feel at ease in her presence. I would highly recommend Stephanie as a vocal teacher for a person of any age.

I love Stephanie! As a student of hers for about a year, I've grown tremendously. She is positive, supportive, constructive, and has a great sense of humor. I've been to many voice teachers over the years and Stephanie is my favorite!

My experience with Stephanie has been exceptionally awesome and inspiring over the last year. She is sensitive, super positive, and full of light and energy when it comes to guidance. I have never felt so confident as a singer, and though I still have a little bit to go before Broadway, I highly recommend her to anyone interested in rapidly developing or fine tuning their singing voice. She is also exceptionally talented as a singer herself and truly tailors sessions to really benefit your particular goals and vision for where you want to bloom as a singer.

Fantastic Teacher with a Fun Personality and a Great Attitude

Stephanie is also so much fun to work with. She makes you feel extremeley comfortable at each lesson and really helps you move forward to acheive your goal. She also knows a lot about music (especially Broadway) and is really fun to chat with. A great choice for older/adult students!

Very relaxed, no pressure, reassuring, fun

Stephanie is really great at creating space for you to learn and participate. I never feel self conscious about singing or doing the exercises, just free to give it a try and not afraid to mess up. She is really good about changing her instruction and tailoring it to how I am responding or what is going on with me that day. If I'm stuck on something for instance, she will switch the exercises so that I am really learning more about myself and my voice and how to feel and switch what I'm doing like if I'm forcing it or something.

Highly recommend

Stephanie is a very talented teacher. I made lots of progress in just my first few lessons in confidence and my voice. She has specific techniques that you can use right away and gives homework to do each week. I like how she has lots of exercises in her repetoire and keeps on top of her e-mails and messages. Highly recommend.

Stephanie really taught me how to sing in front of others, which I have never had the courage to do before. I have gotten better after only approx. 7 lessons which I did not expect to be so shortly. She has given me the courage to learn how to play the guitar, write my own songs, and hopefully I can take my singing to a more professional level. I am very grateful for what I have learned :)

Patient, Encouraging & Effective Singing Teacher

I've wanted to sing for years and finally decided to take some lessons. Stephanie was a great choice for me because she is a patient and nurturing teacher. Though I'm a total beginner, Stephanie is very encouraging and I really enjoy how she structures each lesson so there is a great balance between vocal exercises and actual practice of songs. I'm pleasantly surprised how quickly Stephanie has been able to help me boost my confidence and improve my technique.

Excellent job with my 11 year old!

Stephanie has worked with my 11 yr old daughter for the past couple months, helping her get ready for an audition. She taught her how to breathe, project & become confident in herself. Stephanie even picked out the perfect song for my daughter to sing. We think she nailed her audition! Thank you Stephanie!
