I love helping my students to achieve their goals!
She is very patient and explains why she wants you to do what she asks. She allows you to bring your own music and then spends half your lesson time working on your songs. She is friendly and welcoming. I’d recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their vocal skills.
Ms. Stalnecker helped me tryout for Willy Wonka and I got the role!
I access each student and determine their level when they enter the studio and we work together to build from there.
I have over 15 years of teaching experience for all levels and all voice types. Currently I have more men in my studio but I personally studied with a male for most of my training. I also have been performing and working as a freelance singer for years. My highest level of education is a Masters in Arts in Vocal Performance.
Yes I start all my 30 min lessons at $30.
My mentor encouraged me to start teaching and offered me vocal referrals.
I have students as young as 7 and I have students in their 70s!
If you are serious about your voice take lessons! Find a teacher that works for you. We don't have all the answers but working with someone else to improve your skills is always a bonus!
Decide what goals you have in mind and make a plan to work towards them! It may be just singing better at karaoke or preparing for an audition! I always encourage my students in their goals whatever they are as none are too small!
