„Working with Stefanie has expanded my vocal range and fine tuned the accuracy of my pitch. She is really good at both her vocal techniques and her hands on cranial and facial bone adjustments. I highly recommend working with her if you are passionate about singing and want to go to the next level.”

„Dear Stefanie, the last lesson was like a wonder. I could sing much better with the ensemble and with the choir, my three top notes, that I usually have to force out, came clearly and easily. I received much from this work, especially concerning the opening of the jaw. Many, many thanks!“.

„Stefanies gentle, sensitive hands loosen the regions of jaw and neck sustainingly and support my singing exercises. The treatment helps me to keep relaxed through phases of tough concerts and to establish the perfect placing of the voice“.
