Bare your soul with top-notch vocal instruction!
Stephen McCool's Voice Lessons are ideal for singers looking to improve their classical singing abilities. And, to learn these particular skills, Mr. McCool only assigns music from the musical theatre and classical music literature, not popular music (rock, pop, country, rap, etc...).
About Stephen M.

Studio Overview Stephen McCool's Voice and Piano Lessons are firstly about fun, excitement, and no stress. Therefore, when you sign up for his piano lessons he will only encourage the classical piano repertoire if that’s of interest to your family. However, he will not teach popular music to voice students -- styles like rock, pop, country, rap, etc…It’s simply not what he has been trained to teach. Mr. McCool's passion, for vocal music, has always been musical theater, art songs, opera, and choral music, and that’s the music he teaches in his voice lessons. In addition to his teaching responsibilities, Mr. McCool believes all teaching artists, like himself, should seek out the most challenging professional assessments available, and that is why he sings in the world-renowned Cathedral Choir and Cathedral Schola at the Cathedral of St. Philip, Atlanta, GA. By singing with these phenomenal vocal musicians, and phenomenal human beings, under their amazing director, Dr. Dale Adelmann, Mr. McCool strives to become an expert at interpreting musical notation and expressing all the qualities in music that make for truly magical concerts. Accomplished voice and piano professional with 11 years of experience cultivating high-achieving, talented music students and preparing them for ABRSM exams, National Piano Guild Auditions, NFMC Jr. festivals, twice-a-year recitals, and numerous local competitions. Experienced in creating fun, engaging lessons that inspire students. Strong communication skills with colleagues, parents, and students. Passionate about teaching and sharing his love of music. FAQ: Why choose Stephen M's voice lessons? For one, he sings regularly in both the Cathedral Choir and the world-famous Cathedral Schola at the Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta, GA. So any singer wishing to impress their school's chorus director will greatly benefit from Mr. McCool's voice lessons. In addition, Stephen's former voice students are performing at top universities like NYU. Why choose his piano lessons? As of 2021, Stephen's piano students are earning the highest grade of "Distinction" in the ABRSM performance assessments -- ABRSM is the world leader in music examinations. In addition, Stephen's piano students regularly rank among the top award winners in the local NFMC Jr. festivals and National Piano Guild Auditions.

Stephen is very a very articulate, knowledgeable mindful fun teacher. He continues to explore various techniques to teach people. Not everyone learns the same way and he is keen to identify the method each student can better grasp and understand concepts. He is very talented musician

Unique approach which works well for the littlest ones ... the idea is to keep them interested in the Music and in the instrument so they WANT to “play” but they’re really practicing all week on their own. Great dude ...

My son Rohan has been learning Piano lessons from Mr. Stephen Mccool for about 4 years. Stephen has vast musical experience and is an excellent teacher. He's been really helping my son shape his music and his musicality with technique work and working on pieces that he really enjoy. He goes above and beyond on his musicality. He helps and support my son when he makes a bad move and he helps my son figure out what the pieces mean to him and what they could mean to my son in a way that focuses on the music. Even through the pandemic and completing lessons virtually, he delivered excellently without any delays. My son always looks forward to this piano classes. Stephen is fair but firm with students and I highly recommend him for any student who wants to learn piano. Thank you Stephen for your continuing efforts to present music as a logical, creative, fun, understandable art!
