“Stacy was my first guitar teacher and I really enjoyed learning with her. She’s a great teacher and really fun to play and sing with. She always makes sure I like the music I’m learning and I often get to pick the songs. She encouraged me to practice and write my own songs from the very beginning.  I learned really fast with Stacy because she always makes our lessons relaxing and fun.” - Monti Lambert (age 12).

”When I started working with Stacy I had a hard time with controlling my volume.  If I’m being completely honest, I was extremely loud, lol! Over the last few years she worked on helping me strengthen my breath control and range.  By using different vocal exercises and breathing techniques I now have so much more control as a singer.  Deciding to work with Stacy was the best thing I could have done for myself as a vocalist.  Also, it doesn’t hurt that she’s awesome!” -Lesley Fux (adult student).
