About Stephanie

I graduated magna cum laude from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a Bachelor of Arts in Music. While there, I served as the President of The Cal Poly Choirs, performed lead roles in fully staged opera production, and was an active member in several ensemble groups.

I have taught voice lessons for nearly 10 years and have had students ranging from ages 6 to 80 years old. No matter the genre of music you'd like to sing, classical training provides an important foundation and ensures your voice is being used properly. While many beginners learn by rote, I do like to incorporate some music theory into lessons so students can begin to understand the language of music.

For more advanced students and those interested in opera, you will have an opportunity to sing in a variety of languages including Italian, German, and French.

I also offer beginning piano lessons. For voice students interested in learning an instrument, piano is an excellent foray into the world of music and lesson times can be split accordingly.

I began serious study of the voice at age 15 and haven't stopped since. As vocalists, our bodies are our instruments and I encourage my students' expression through such a creative and personal outlet. There is always something new to be learned and with each student I love helping them discover and unlock their talent. Through vocal exercises and learning proper technique, your talent will be fostered and continually develop.

I believe that you have to practice to get better. Students will be expected to practice in between lessons. I am quite flexible but do have a 24-hour cancellation policy. If possible, I will offer a make-up lesson within the same week.

Please reach out if you have any questions I might be able to help you with. I look forward to helping you on your vocal journey!

In-person lessons

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Piano

I hold my B.A. in Music. While my concentration was on vocal performance, piano skills were a mandatory aspect of completing the degree. I have taught beginning piano for several years.

Voice (Music)

I have been studying voice since I was 15 years old and received my undergraduate degree in music with a concentration in Vocal Performance. I have taught voice lessons for almost a decade and am constantly trying to learn more so I can share it with my students. I remain active in pursuing music performance opportunities myself so I can be constantly using and honing my craft.
