Paula Shtein's Studio for Beginners Singing, Acting, and Piano Lessons

Are you looking for a qualified teacher who’s available to provide tailored lessons for your child's needs? I’m a qualified Piano/Vocal Instructor with a Bachelors of Music in Vocal Performance from Capital University Conservatory of Music. I am offering personalized lessons and instructive services to students in the New York City area OR over Skype! I love what I do and have been teaching children performance skills since 2010. I am committed to helping children (especially beginners) interested in the arts explore their musical and performing skills further and to help them reach their full potential.



I have a BM in Vocal Performance from Capital University- Conservatory of Music. I have been been trained vocally in classical and musical theater styles and have passed a course in vocal pedagogy. I have been teaching and working with kids since 2010 and always customize the pace of the lesson towards the individual student. Vocally, I have been awarded first place in the senior vocal division for Justine Hackman Memorial Young Jewish Artist Competition. I have also performed many theatrical roles- favorites include: the lead role of Anne in the National Tour of "My Heart in a Suitcase," the role of Fanny Brice in Funny Girl at Gallery Players (Regional theatre), the role of Olive Ostrovsky at Weathervane Playhouse (Regional theatre), I've performed off-off Broadway and many more. In addition, I was the top soloist for the Columbus International Children’s Choir for many years and have completed the musical theater intensive at the renowned Interlochen Center for the Arts. In 2014 I was asked to perform for the mayor at City Hall (Columbus, Ohio) for the Annual Holocaust Remembrance Ceremony and have performed with renowned violinist, Arkadiy Gips.

As a graduate from a conservatory of music with a degree in vocal performance (specializing in opera and musical theatre) I have performed in many different venues since the age of 7. I know I can help new students find the confidence to improve their performing and vocal skills through fun lessons that focus on vocal health and improving their vocal abilities. I have been taking voice lessons since the age of 5 and know how to create a fun and welcoming environment that nurtures their love of music while gradually reaching goals that we set together as student and teacher. Even students as young as 5 can start to foster their musical skills and be introduced to the arts. My mission? To teach the student to sing comfortably and enjoyably while utilizing healthy technique and learning to “tell the story” of a song.

I know how difficult it can be to find a reliable teacher that focuses on Piano for Kids. Teachers need to be able to motivate and guide students towards success. As an experienced and passionate Piano Instructor, I believe in an approach that gives students positive, constructive ways to learn. I design my lessons according to my students’ needs, with an emphasis on confidence-boosting activities. We will work on an introduction to music, sight reading notes, musicianship skills, and learning fun songs to play for friends and family.

I specialize in Beginners Acting Lessons and know how to reach my students with the right balance of personalized attention, patience, practical training, and positive encouragement. I make learning fun through a variety of engaging and outside-the-box activities and can help them explore their character for that upcoming audition, school play, or just getting started in the performing arts with monologues and fun acting games. I have been performing in theatrical productions since a very young age and know that acting also helps a student gain confidence and learn more about themselves. I have personally experienced this and love to help new students discover and explore the joy of acting and performing.

Method of payment, whether it be cash, check, or online via paypal, venmo, etc..will be negotiated between student and teacher prior to lessons. Make-up lessons can be scheduled. Teacher will purchase music and will be compensated by student at the next lesson to cover the music.

"Paula is excellent. Her ability to analyze and assess a singer’s vocal ability, range, their strengths, their weaknesses and offer a plan for corrective action and improvement is remarkable. I was honestly caught off guard as I listened to her coaching my three girls this afternoon. She knows her stuff and is technically en pointe. She is also calm, collective, efficient, effective, productive and able to work with children in a gentle yet professional manner with a positive approach. Thrilled to be working with her."



"Paula has been great working with my daughter via Skype and this week we were able to meet her in person in NYC. What a treat for my daughter! She's great!"
