Voice Lessons

Expressing oneself through singing and songwriting is a beautiful thing, and it brings me great happiness to be a part of discovering what this form of expression means to each individual student. I focus on interpretation, vocal technique, breathing, and musicality, while overcoming technical and mental obstacles that apply to each individual student individually. Working through these blocks and opening the pathway to acceptance of your own creative expression will help with the technical aspect of singing and at the same time enrich you as a human being.

Overview

Do you want to improve your songwriting and singing skills? Are you in need of some guidance to get to the next level? Then you’ve come to the right place.

From the moment I found my own voice in songwriting, I've been passionate about helping people discover theirs. My ultimate goal is to bring to the forefront what makes you the unique artist that you are.

The subjects I’ll help you with can vary, depending on your needs and level, but include some of the following:

*Vocal technique
*Harmony & theory
*Creating background vocals
*Turning great concepts and lyrics into fully arranged songs
*Becoming proficient in recording & producing your own music in LogicProX
*Recording demos of your songs at my home studio

The coaching sessions take place at my house in Beverly Hills and are 1 hour (unless otherwise discussed). Feel free to reach out to me for a try-out session, so you can find out if you'd feel comfortable letting me into your creative process. I'll be looking forward to hearing from you!

Teaching Philosophy

The feeling you get when you write a lyric that's close to your heart, transform it into a song, and have the ability to express it with your voice... that's something special. It brings me great joy to be a part of discovering what this means to each individual person interested in songwriting and singing. It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or have a ton of experience. We'll focus on your unique musical expression, and overcoming anything that may stand in the way of that.

About:

My name is Stephanie Yavelow. I'm a Swiss-American vocalist / multi-instrumentalist / composer / dancer. 

I was born in Beverly Hills, but raised in the Netherlands. There I followed extensive studies in music (vocals, piano, guitar, violin), received a BA of Dance, and deepened my knowledge of philosophy and art. I returned to LA to bring these elements together in my own musical project: VAYY. 

VAYY challenges your mind and intrigues your heart with pure soothing vocals, daunting harmonies, melodies, and cinematic sounds.

Besides coaching, I also work as an audio engineer assistant, session singer, and performer.
