Thanks so much, Sabina! Brian did a great job performing his pieces at our Masterclass. I'm glad that he also enjoys learning Music Theory.

Thanks so much, Mika! I enjoy working with you on Classical repertoire and technique and look forward to your participation in our Masterclass~
Dr.Stephanie is not only highly educated and experienced but has sharp understanding of her students and their goals, focus and needs. She is a wonderful, efficient, and energetic teacher who gets down to business and makes the most of each lesson. I was surprised to learn so much from the very first lesson in a short space of time. She is experienced for all student's areas of direction and levels of skill.May 18, 2015VerifiedDr. Stephanie's Virtual Voice and Piano Lessons's reply
Thanks so much, Ali! I look forward to your continued quick progress!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The first lesson may be paid separately in order to try it out; after that, payment is due for the balance of the month. The "gold standard" for adults is one 60-minute lesson per week. One 60-minute lesson=$105. Half the lesson is spent on technique and half on repertoire. A 45-minute lesson=$90. Half the lesson is spent on technique and half on repertoire. A 30-minute lesson (recommended only for young children who can't concentrate for a longer period of time) =$70.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I first ask them to sing or play something, to assess their level. If they've never sung or played before, that's OK! We also have a conversation regarding their musical goals. Once we begin training, I use technology to work on both the audio and visual aspects of performance.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My BM, MM and DMA degrees are in Piano Performance from USC. I also studied voice with noted USC professors. As a choral accompanist (university and community choirs) I've toured Europe, Canada and Australia. Being involved in theatre, I also emphasize the dramatic aspects of interpretation and stage deportment.
