About this pro

I am a classically trained Opera Singer with 10 years of professional experience in New York, DC, and internationally.

I have a private voice studio and teach 10+ students either virtually or in person on a weekly basis.

Singing is the most powerful way I can express myself. My heart is genuinely happy whenever I am singing. I want everybody to have the opportunity to experience that which is why I teach.

    Stephen is super personable and great to work with! He is patient, clear in his instruction, and is able to give clear, understandable feedback. He did a fantastic job of switching to online lessons during the Covid-19 crisis, and his lesson quality didn't decrease at all. I would absolutely recommend Stephen Steffens Voice Studio to singers of all abilities.

  • Alexandra Seabrook

    Besides being probably the easiest person on the planet to get along with, Stephen is incredibly knowledgeable in vocal performance--classical, musical theater as well as pop and other styles. He truly takes the time to understand his students and their individual needs. Stephen really brought out the best in my voice and I'm confident he will do the same for others!!

  • Rachael Cain

    Stephen not only is a patient and positive teacher, he gets to know your individual voice and recommends exercises based on your personal needs. He has helped me unpack YEARS of unhealthy technique in a matter of weeks and feeling much more confident and happy when i sing!!!

  • Emily Kautzer

    Stephen is always on your side and constantly pushing you to be better than before. He’s kind, extremely knowledgeable and funny beyond all reason. Every lesson I left I felt Like I could Fly. Give him a shot and you won’t regret it!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I get to know all my students and I gather information about how best to interact with each individual student. I start every lesson with simple vocal warm ups to see where the student is at with their voice and their musical technique. I adjust my teaching style according to the experience level of each student and give the student songs that appropriately match their experience. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been singing in professional opera houses for the past decade. 

-MM Classical Voice, Manhattan School of Music, Class of 2014

-BA Classical Voice, Montana State University, Class of 2012


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$35 for a 45 minute lesson

or

$25 for a half hour lesson


How did you get started teaching?

When I first started singing I taught lessons to friends in order to have a supplementary income. I fell in love with it and will always continue teaching no matter how busy my operatic schedule is. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I work with with students who are singing in regional theaters and students who prefer just to sing in their shower and want to have an hour of structured practice time! 

I typically teach adults but am flexible 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Outline what you wish to accomplish so you and your teacher are on the same page. Make sure you feel comfortable with your teacher, and be honest with your teacher. If something feels wrong vocally, speak up! We are also very receptive to feedback and we understand every individual learns in a different way.
