Though I have been singing since age 9 in lessons and onstage, working with Stephen in the past year has really launched me to the next level, and helped immensely in the pursuit of my music career. His lessons, fine ear and extensive experience help me to see beyond my limits as a singer. He is accessible and enthusiastic as a teacher, and encourages the same qualities and focus in his students. I have become more technically apt, confident, and excited about my music career thanks to Stephen Bigger.Dec 2, 2013RockArbor Music Production VOTED BEST of 2015 on Thumbtack!'s reply
Heather, thank you for your review. I really enjoy your music and am pleased to be able to work with you towards your goals!
It was great working with Stephen. His studio is impressive, and set in a relaxed atmosphere. He is a good listener, and easy to work with. He is a musician, so he has a good ear for music. This helps when listening back on your recording. He had some great advise. My project was mainly piano, with some very fast string parts. He edit each and every note to make sure they matched up in perfect timing. I thanked him, and said it looked like a lot of work. He commented that he actually enjoys it! He seems genuinely interested on getting your project right, just they way You want it. You will leave filling good about yourself, and your music! I am looking forward to working with Stephen on my next project.Nov 20, 2014Verified
As a music student working towards my degree in voice, I can confidently say that Stephen is the most enthusiastic and visionary teacher I have worked with. He has an intensive musical background and is very knowledgeable in the study of the voice. From human anatomy to microphone technique he can create a studio experience for you that's nothing like anything you can get from anyone else.Dec 4, 2013
Having worked with Stephen Bigger on numerous concert and recording projects in a wide variety of musical styles, I know him to be a profoundly knowledgable and inspired/inspiring musician/teacher. His command of music and recording technology is second to none. Stephen is very perceptive and empathetic, and able to direct and coach musicians of every age and level to maximize their performance. He creates a safe, confident atmosphere, bringing out the best in each musician.Jan 2, 2014
