I have studied with Steven ever since I was twelve years old and may I say he has changed not only my vocal technique but also, me as a person. I began one summer as an untrained, timid singer with many flaws in my voice. However, going to Steven with these issues was the wisest decision I have ever made. He has taught me breathing techniques, made my voice fuller and stronger, and developed my range to great lengths. He also has taught me the art of opera and how to release my tension in order to achieve the richest sound possible.While doing this he manages to also show his passion, love and care to all his students. Steven is like family to me and every time we have a lesson I learn and grow not only as a performer but as a person. But, all I can say is, over the years with repetition, dedication and hard work, Steven and I have become masters at exploring and molding a voice I never even knew I had.

I have been Steven's student since 2008. I initially came to him as an adult hobbyist, concerned that my vocal range was shrinking and my singing voice gradually weakening. Steve has continuously astonished me with his ability to recognize potential, troubleshoot and diagnose limitations, and use multiple methods to teach and explain proper technique. Under his tutelage my voice has grown increasingly versatile, rich and resonant-helping me succeed at auditions and performances ranging from local community theater to professional stages, and even the Apollo in New York! I have recommended him to dozens of peers. If you are willing to invest energy applying what you learn and practicing on your own, Steve will help you make technique second nature. As a singer, nothing is more liberating than trusting my body and voice to produce the right sound, while I focus on delivering emotion and stories rather than "hitting the notes."

Kimberly Suskind - Professional

Since I started training with Steve, what can I say? He quickly figured out what I was doing wrong and set about to fix the bad habits I had acquired after not performing for 2 years. He explains things in a way that makes complete sense. He is extremely passionate about bringing out the best in everyone and really cares deeply about the success of his students. He truly will do whatever he can to help you produce the best and most healthful voice you can. Steve is very honest and up front and tells you exactly what you need to know to make your vocal career long and successful. Steven's techniques WILL work as long as you are committed and practice. Along with Steven's proven techniques, he is also an amazing man. He has an incredible sense of humor, a lot of patience, and I really look forward to every lesson even just to hang out with him! Steven is a mentor, an incredible teacher, and I know will be a lifelong friend. No plain 'thank you' will ever suffice! Love you Steven!
