No matter the genre you like to sing, classical training provides an important foundation and ensures the voice is being used properly. As vocalists, our bodies are our instruments and Stephanie encourages her students’ expression through such a creative and personal outlet. There is always something new to be learned and she finds great joy in helping students discover and unlock their talent.
Proper vocal technique is achieved through control of the breath and the correct usage of the musculature. Various vocal and breath exercises will aid in developing your stamina and versatility.
Students will gain confidence in their abilities through musicianship and learning about elements of performance such as audition protocol, stage presence, and diction. Stephanie also incorporates basic music theory so students can begin to understand the language of music. For more advanced students and those interested in opera, they will have an opportunity to sing in a variety of languages including Italian, German, and French.
