Steven has been my good friend and coach for many years. He has a encyclopedic knowledge of music and can find anything you request, no matter how obscure. He has helped me tremendously in preparing for auditions and learning new tunes. His energy, enthusiasm, and sense of humor make the whole experience so enjoyable. I would recommend him to anyone looking for top notch vocal coach!

Steven is the best vocal coach I've ever gone to. Steven shows you how to sing a song and get it over. He will give you ideas and offer suggestions. He can also transpose a song into a more comfortable key, on the spot---which is enormously helpful, if you have a voice that falls in between the traditional sheet music keys.
I would say, that for auditions, cabarets, or B'way shows, you can't do better than Steven--he knows his stuff, and most importantly, he cares about his students as individuals, and that is rare!

Steven has an incredible knowledge of music and the voice that makes him such a wonderful teacher. But more importantly he has a special heart to match his brilliant head. I'm so lucky to have called him teacher.

Steven IS the teacher you need. He's super knowledgeable in musical theater repertoire and incredibly versed in performance technique. Also, he's fun! He makes singing the experience it should be!

In my years as a performer, two things have been constant for me: that humanity trumps work, and that everyone deserves respect. When I recently looked for a new vocal coach and met Steven, I knew I was home. Steven is without doubt a talented and creative coach, arranger, composer and pianist/accompanist. Equally important, though, is that he instills his work with singular kindness and encouragement that are rare in this business of show. He has given me ideas, arrangements, guidance and direction, always with respect and care. He has more faith in me than I have in myself—isn’t that something? With Steven's help, I have found my voice again. Oh yes, he’s fun too!
