With over a decade of teaching experience, Stephanie is currently on faculty at Temple University, teaching voice to her studio of B.F.A. Musical Theatre students. Before teaching at Temple, Stephanie was an adjunct instructor for voice at NYU Steinhardt for two years, where she most notably taught voice to a number of Tisch Drama students. Outside of her university studios, Stephanie gives voice lessons to singers of all ages in her private voice studio year-round, and is currently accepting new students to her waitlist.
"I’ve had quite a few voice teachers over the years, but never once have I felt as supported in vocal training as I do with Stephanie. Her beaming spirit, endless encouragement, and vast insight have not only helped me rediscover my fervent passion for singing, but have also allowed me to finally gain confidence with my voice. Now singing for an audience is becoming less of a hassle and more of a priceless bliss. Besides her tremendous ability to teach others, I believe that something that makes Stephanie very special is that she truly understands what it means to be an artist. Rather than making you imitate the nuances and feelings of the artist singing the song, Stephanie is all about bringing yourself and your distinctive voice to every piece. Thanks to Stephanie I am slowly uncovering the value that each and every voice holds, especially mine."

"My now 18 year old college daughter Caitlin studies opera and classical music at Boston Conservatory at Berklee, and we were fortunate to meet Mrs. Scuderi earlier on. Stephanie Scuderi was her first vocal teacher from a tender age of 10 to her high school senior year. Ms. Scuderi had an incredible impact on Caitlin’s vocal ability. These lessons certainly influenced her from a shy introverted 10 year old girl, to a beautiful extroverted young woman who had employed confidence and gained self-esteem. The impact of her voice resonated with the audience during her numerous voice recitals that were put on by Mrs. Scuderi. Thanks to her, my daughter was introduced to different genres of music such as classical, arias, opera and pop.
These private voice lessons had impacted my daughter and allowed her to be a sought-after candidate in the college audition process. This was evident after she received callbacks from all of her college auditions (such as; New England Conservatory, Juilliard, Manhattan School of music, Oberlin conservatory, Eastman School of music, John Hopkins Peabody, Cleveland School of Music and Boston Conservatory at Berklee). The decision was unanimous when she chose Boston Conservatory at Berklee.
Mrs. Scuderi’s dedication and hard work that she instilled in my daughter is exemplary and indicative of her outcome and tremendous growth. I will be eternally grateful to her for the impact she had in taking my daughter throughout this journey from a shy young girl who loved music and found her calling, to an incredibly talented young woman that is now wowing her audiences with her beautiful voice."

"Singing is a process, much like any kind of art. The end product which many get to enjoy is a performance of a song which has been rehearsed by an artist many times, refined and brought closer and closer to something like a final version. Working with Stephanie, I developed a diverse repertoire that spanned all genres. Stephanie has a knack for balancing technical work with choosing songs to study that access something deep and meaningful in an artist. Stephanie herself is a talented artist but first and foremost in our lessons she was always a teacher. Her passion for music and understanding of pedagogy were evident in every single lesson."

"I have been working with Stephanie Scuderi for 6 years, 5 of which she has been my private voice teacher. Each of my lessons brought me more knowledge about how to work with my voice and how to help other students sing in a healthy way that allows their unique talent to blossom. Without her help, I definitely would not be pursuing music in college or have the same passion for pedagogy and performing arts that I do today. While watching Stephanie work with other students, it is clear to see that she has many different techniques to keep each student singing and performing in a healthy and comfortable manner for them. Ultimately, Stephanie is a fantastic and deeply supportive voice teacher for a student of any age and will work tirelessly to show her students their unlimited potential."
