Why Choose A Plateau Vocal Coach
Have you always wanted to work with a singing teacher who could coach you through your recordings?
What about a vocal coach who will go to the recording studio with you to make sure you get your best sound laid down on a track?
For sure you want a teacher who understands how to avoid vocal injury and incorporates that knowledge into their teaching style.
Private voice lessons with our Plateau teachers are focused, tailored to your individual needs and skill level. Some students come to the Plateau to learn classical singing, others want to have a teacher who can coach them on jazz as they record a song in a professional studio. Lessons with our plateau teachers in Montreal will enable you to gain confidence, sing in studio spaces that are inspiring and professional, and give you access to vocal technique used by advanced singers.
Don’t hesitate to ask your teacher to leave the Plateau and join you at your recording studio: Having your vocal coach in studio sessions with you is a trick used by advanced students to make the most of your recording time.
While all of these teachers have a recording setup at their home studios in the Plateau, they are willing to travel with you throughout Montreal to your show or recording studio time in order to coach you or warm you up.
In our experience, vocal coaches can be life savers in these moments of performance. Particularly for singers whose first time it is recording! Nerves get in the way: let us build your confidence.

Stephanie Sedlbauer is a portfolio artist from Burlington, Ontario who has been living in Montreal for the last 5 years. Stephanie specializes in vocal flexibility, performing in a wide variety of styles for the past 15 years. With a Masters in Opera and Voice from McGill University (2019) Stephanie is highly experienced and educated in western classical voice technique. Opera has led her to perform across North America, as well as Italy and Germany. But her love for singing started in rock and roll, as well as singers like Aretha Franklin and Etta James. This led her to a long early career as a young musical theatre chorus member, and many rock and contemporary stage performances, including the Burlington Sound of Music Festival, and singing a performance with the official Led Zeppelin Cover band. Obviously, Stephanie loves giving rock singing lessons and offers this in-demand service to ages 16+.
In 2012 she won the Adjudicators award for Best Director in the Sears Ontario Drama Festival, and she spent 3 years teaching group acting classes with the Academy of Film and Performing Arts in Burlington Ontario. From this, and her own love of performing, has come a passion to help guide singers and actors in developing their acting for performance and audition preparation.
