If I can do it, you can too! Hi, I'm Stephen. Welcome to Tap Into Your Artistry (TIYA). My TIYA clients include (aspiring) Broadway performers, Film and TV actors, singer-songwriters, voice-over artists, pageant contestants, news anchors, dancers, comedians, corporate sales presenters, as well as karaoke enthusiasts, and songwriting hobbyists. My TIYA clients have performed on Broadway in: Ghost, Sister Act, Evita, Wicked, West Side Story, South Pacific, The Phantom of the Opera, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, and Rent to name a few. They also have booked lead roles in Independent films, and become social influencers creating their own content! They can be seen on television in Smash, Glee, and you might even catch me on Netflix in "Luke Cage" opposite Mike Colter. Singer-songwriter TIYA clients have performed in venues around NYC ranging from The Underground, Le Poisson Rouge, Drom, Cornelia Street Cafe, and Arlene’s Grocery.--and sing, write, produce, and perform their own music! About Me: I have been fortunate to perform on Broadway, National Tour, can be seen on Netflix, played lead roles in 3 SAG-AFTRA short films, and I've also worked with a #1 Billboard songwriter and recording artist singing on over 100 demos in the music industry. Tap Into Your Artistry (TIYA) welcomes anyone who wants to learn how to sing, act, and/or write songs. For those with professional aspirations, you will fast track your singing, acting, and songwriting career with my TIYA tools. TIYA embraces a unique, athletic teaching and training style, which has been honed over 20 years as my specialty is professional, artistic development. I can help you in multiple ways: I'm a vocal trainer, acting coach, piano and guitar teacher (beginner and intermediate levels), and songwriting mentor. If you... Want to be a pop star? Have Broadway dreams? Want to Act in plays or movies? Learn to do Voice-overs? Write hit songs? Or even need help taking your public speaking, branding, and/or sales presentations to the next level, then you are in the right place. Sing: Discover the fastest and most efficient way to build, strengthen, and condition your voice. Sing freely and with emotion in any style. Play guitar: Learn strumming, simple chords, common pop progressions, dexterity exercises, advanced barre chords, and more. Explore songwriting: Catchy hooks, thoughtful lyrics, concise hit song structures, all while learning about basic music production and developing yourself as an artist, songwriter, and producer. Acting: Build a foundation of truthful spontaneity and flowing emotional connection using theatrical monologues, TV/Film scenes, Self tapes and more. Voice-over: Learn about voice acting and how to apply it to Commercial, video game, promo, animation projects ,etc. Learning to act is also excellent training for aspiring recording artists to help tap into emotional vocal delivery and connect with their song(s) and fans. Career Strategy: If you want to learn more about auditioning, acting in movies, performing in musicals/plays on Broadway, writing your own songs, and developing show-biz career strategy, (headshots, meeting agents/managers, etc) I help TIYA members every day achieve their artistic dreams. MORE INFO: I have been singing since I was 3, anything and everything from Michael Jackson to Elvis Presley to Luciano Pavarotti. Originally from Colorado, I studied music/theatre, as well as vocal pedagogy at The University of Colorado at Boulder, where I graduated with highest honors. I made my Broadway debut in "The Phantom of the Opera" at age 24. I also performed in "Chess in concert" as a featured rock tenor soloist at the New Amsterdam Theatre on Broadway with Josh Groban. I have understudied and performed lead roles in the first AEA National Tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s "Whistle Down the Wind." Regionally, I have played many lead roles all over the United States in productions including "Les Miserables," "Miss Saigon," "The Wild Party," and "She Loves Me." As an ASCAP recording artist, I play both piano and guitar. I have been fortunate to work with a #1 Billboard songwriter and recording artist, singing on over 100 demos in many different genres. (pop. R&B, soul, hip-hop, country, neo-soul, etc.). As a TV/Film actor, I can be seen on Marvel's "Luke Cage" on Netflix, and I played the lead role of (Abraham) Lincoln in the SAG-AFTRA short film, "These Honored Dead." I also have played lead roles in 3 SAG-AFTRA short films, as well as the comedic lead in a SAG-AFTRA Web-series pilot, "Bodega Nights." I was called back for producers as a Series Regular for both Cinemax and HBO. *** Lesson Details *** We will always work on whatever you want. For guitar--Learn chord shapes fast, your way around the fret board, master strumming, and quickly build your coordination putting it all together to play songs! For Singing, as a vocal technician/trainer I am like going to the gym for your voice. My exercises are safe, simple, and most importantly, I teach you how to practice correctly. For ACTing, we can explore both the foundation itself, building your acting chops with monologues and scenes, as well as learning how to audition-- the tricks of the trade mastering the camera frame and how to create memorable auditions for TV/Film. For Songwriting, we can explore the fundamentals of both lyrics and music, as well as catchy hooks, production, and song structure. You may use my time however you wish (Voice, Acting, Songwriting, or Artistic/Career guidance). Most vocal sessions will usually be a combination of strengthening/conditioning exercises, and then exploring/performing a song. For guitar, dexterity, chord shapes, strumming, transitioning smoothly from one chord to another all while learning songs! The TIYA vocal training method is uniquely my own. Emphasis is on developing a relaxed, released, authentic vocal timbre to sing in any style. Concepts explored include: Coordination, Registration, and Intonation. Chest, Head, Edge, and Pharyngel registration, 2 instruments in 1, posture, breath management, vocal cord adduction, trigger phrases, ring, consistency, and more.  Most ACTing sessions will be theatre monologues, TV/Film sides and/or On camera auditioning craft. Career consultations usually include how to get an agent, headshots, branding, and marketing to align your artistic dreams with a strategy for success. ***Studio Equipment*** Mac mini with Thunderbolt Display Sterling audio tube mic ST 69 Focusrite audio interface -Yamaha PSR 950 Keyboard -SONY Handycam DCR SR100 -600W Continuous Lighting Kit -Omni Directional Lavier -Adjustable InnoGear Microphone Boom -MacPro -YAMAHA Guitar -Meinl Cajon M-Audio DX4 Studio Monitors -iPhone 12 Pro Max

Stephen does an excellent job making me feel comfortable during our sessions. I’m new to voice lessons and was nervous at first but working with Stephen has been such a pleasure. He does phenomenal work helping me understand his lessons with examples and application. I’m really grateful to have found Stephen as I work to improve my voice for my sports broadcasting career. He is fantastic!
