Hi to everybody! :)
My name is Stef, I am a lyrical singer from Barcelona who currently lives in Montréal (and I love it!).
I am going to teach you how to sing in a healthy way. I work a lot of genres (opera, zarzuela, chanson, lied, musical pop,...) and I can teach you to accompany yourself on the piano. Also I give piano and musical theory lessons. Moreover, I train corageous people to pass successfully their auditions/exams. My classes are for people of all ages who want to learn and have a great experience!
As a teacher, I am a 12 year-experienced woman who has worked with people from 3 to 65 years old in a wide range of musical areas. I have been teaching as in schools as in private-home lessons. My classes could be individuals or in group and they can be taken at your home or at mine, which is located in the vibrant area of Plateau-Mile End!
If you feel interested about the vocal world and you want to begin, even if you think you can not do it, I encourage you to try! On the other hand, if you have experience and you want to reinforce your vocal technique, improve your interpretation and feel yourself more comfortable on the stage, it will be a big pleasure to work with you :)
My methodology is unique for each person so it is shaped on the student needs. Generally it is based on the body awareness, breathing, vocal technique, declamation and interpretation. To achieve that, it is important to establish a trust-based relationship between us and to make you feel to be in a comfortable and free environment. I find this point essential to make music. You have to feel that you almost make no efforts to sing.
Apart from this, I can help you in these fields:
- Science. I have a Bachelors Degree in Biotechnology and one Masters Degree in Cytogenetics and Biology of Reproduction (I love science).
- Languages. I can teach you spanish and catalan (native languages).
My experience is divided in two lines: education and performance.
Regarding my education experience, through 12 years I have taught singing, musical theory and piano in schools (for children and teenagers), conservatorys (students from 4 to 65 years old) and in private lessons (mostly adults). Both experiences were enriching and gave me powerful resources to help and understand people's needs.
About performance experience, since I was 17 years old I have participated in quite zarzuelas, operas, oratorios and musicals around Spain, mostly in Barcelona and Granada.
Recently I have worked in the Gran Teatre del Liceu de Barcelona (one of the biggest and most prestigious theaters in Europe) and the experience was amazing.
I am a singer from the Higher Conservatory of Music Liceu (Barcelona).
My teaching methods are based in body awareness, concentration, breathing, vocal technique, declamation and interpretation. But the most important thing is to establish a trust-based relationship between us in order to feel comfortable and free when we make music. That's the goal! :)
Perfect! Stef is patient and she is capable for her lessons. Although I'm an international student, i didn't find it hard to communicate with her, on the contrary, the class is easy to understand . I'll continue to take lessons with her.
Yu is a great student! He is a very sensitive and disciplined person who loves exploring and learning new things. Always with a positive attitude, he shows a lot of interest and doesn't hesitate to ask me any doubts. He is very talkative so the communication between us is perfect.
Well done and keep singing, Yu! :)
Perfect! She is a great teacher. She made me feel very comfortable as soon as we got the lesson going. Very patient with me. Amazing voice as well. I highly recommend her as a teacher. Choosing her was the best decision i made in a while. Looking forward to my next lesson ;)
He is a very enthusiastic, attentive and sensitive person. With this energy and curiosity I am pretty sure he will improve quickly :)
I am happy to see him in my lessons and work together.
Johnny, don't give up! Show must go on ;)
Perfect! Me enseñó técnicas vocales muy interesantes. También la importancia del estado de tu cuerpo , por loq ue aprendí muchos ejerci ios de relajación corporal que me ayudaban a la hora de cantar posteriormente. Me enseñó a no imitar voces, sino a adaptarme a ellas sin perder mi sonido propio, algo que nunca antes me habían enseñado.
Perfect! Muy útil. me ayudó a preparar una canción para una fiesta.
Learning with Stef has more then met my expectations of a patient and communicative instructor, not to mention the fact the she can easily demonstrate the techniques needed to improve ones vocal skillset. Stef also is also very patient and adapts her lessons to each students specific needs. If you are new to singing and vocal training like me and are hesitant to make the jump,(my confidence has grown so much since we started) Stef is an excellent choice, I am happy I made the decision to train with her and I will continue to do so.
Stef is such a sweetheart. The moment you step in her home she makes you feel immediately comfortable. She has an interesting approach in her singing lessons where the main focus revolves around being mindful of our breathing when we sing. Basically she starts from the basics so if you take her classes often enough and on a regular basis, you will most definitely see some serious improvement! Super patient and super understanding! I would recommend Stef 100% if anyone wants to learn in a fun and interactive way!
Would definitely recommend Stef as a piano teacher! She's very approachable, has an amazing energy which makes lessons enjoyable and inspires me to practice. Also, she gives great tips that are easy to apply when you leave the lesson.
Stef is a wonderful teacher! In my short time spent with her, I have learned so much about the mechanisms behind singing and different exercises to facilitate healthy singing practices.
She clearly has a wide breadth of knowledge on musical theory and on top of it all a beautiful voice! I am a beginner student (with no musical background) and she explains concepts very clearly in a way that makes it easy to understand. She is very kind, patient and attentive. She adapts to her students' abilities and their goals. To anyone who is curious about starting to sing I highly recommend Stef!
You are an amazing teacher. When i first started off, i was nervous with 0 confidence in a place i am not comfortable in. Now i think we just finishd the 6th lesson, our relationship between each other has grown significantly. I am more comfortable in your place and i am more relaxed. My confidence is much higher and i am not that nervous any more. The lessons are very enjoyable and i feel like i am making a lot of progress. Your excercises seem to help a lot.
I appreciate the fact that you take time out of your evening to teach me how to sing. You look like you are having just as much fun as me haha. You are an amazing person with amazing talent and i appreciate the effort you are putting in to help me.
I 100% recommend Stef to anyone who might want to take singing lessons. You will be a fool if you dont give her a chance.
