Philosophy and Background
Every individual has a "voice" print as unique as their fingerprint. Helping students to discover the instrument within them is one of my life's passions. Whether you want to pursue a career as a musical theater performer, improve your stamina for long choral rehearsals, or expand your range and improve your tone and bring your character to life for that next audition, I will help you to understand how your voice works - that amazing combination of Body, Breath & Soul - and guide you to your goals in a healthy and positive way with exercises and repertoire.

Stacie Steinke grew up with the Great American Songbook in her ear and in her voice, performing classic tunes with family and friends in casual jam-sessions. This developed her love of ensemble performing and entertainment. In her hometown of Wilmington, DE, she was known as "the little girl with the big voice. She earned her Masters in Music in Vocal Pedagogy from the Catholic University of America, and found her passion in musical theater performances in Washington, DC, Chicago, and Mexico City, in shows such as "Company," "The Most Happy Fella," and "The Secret Garden."
As the Founder and Artistic Director of Festive Florida Singers in St. Petersburg, Festive Singers in Chicago, and Make-A-Scene Music and Entertainment in Washington, DC, Stacie created performance ensembles that blended the jazz standard rep with theatrical presentation. She created Polyester, Please!, an interactive homage to the 1970s. She wrote and produced WWII Radio Hour to feature songs from the 40s in a format that brought to life the poignancy of a nation at war. In the classical music world, Stacie has performed as a soloist alongside vocalists from the Washington Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, and the award-winning Mexican Tenor Mauro Calderon.
