Background:

Stephanie was surrounded by musicians since she was born! She grew up in Toms River, New Jersey. And her father was in a band with three of her uncles that gigged regularly in New York City. Her father also wrote jingles for local businesses and played piano for their church choir. Stephanie lost her father at the young age of six. However she continued her love of music.

During her adolescent years, Stephanie taught herself piano, guitar and of course singing. As she grew into a teenager, Stephanie started gigging unprofessionally in a band in high school, as well as solo. After high school, Stephanie met her Fiancé Travis, and today they have a career together playing live music and teaching voice lessons in Lutz. Stephanie sings in a jazz duo called The House Cats. They perform all around Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater and Orlando!

Favorite Aspect of Teaching:

I sometimes consider myself a late bloomer. So in a way I look up to children with a dedication to music. When you have a passion at a young age, the possibilities are endless! I absolutely love sharing my knowledge and experience in live performance with students. Additionally, I feel privileged to be a part of their amazing musical journey.
