Elena Stabile, Voice

Teaching Statement:

As a voice teacher, I want to equip my students with a deeper understanding of their own voices and how to use the voice healthily and expressively. I believe that while there are fundamental elements of voice study that apply to all students, regardless of age or experience, each student is unique in the way that they interact with their instrument, and I want to guide them in their exploration of their voice such that they are simultaneously challenged and supported. I am happy to work with my students on any style of music that interests them and brings them joy.
