Welcome! My name is Stephanie Morgan Fox and I have been teaching vocal technique for over two decades. My students gain confidence with a variety of performing opportunities, become better musicians, and learn how to do an effective audition. My chief focus is on building the skill level and confidence of my students. Perhaps that is why my students are so successful!
I hold degrees in Vocal Performance from California State University at Fullerton and The University of Arizona. I have had the pleasure to study with notable teachers including; Charles Roe (AZ), David Jones (NYC), David Gordon (CA), Elizabeth Moser (CA), the late Michael Kirkjian (CA), the late Jane Paul (CA) and the late Dr. Norman Wright. I have sung premiere works of Phillip Glass, James DeMars, Arvo Part, Krystof Penderecki, and John Williams, and under the direction of such notable conductors as Helmut Rilling, John Williams, and Bobby McFerrin to name just a few.
My training began in popular music; I have recorded with rock bands and sung extensively in jazz and folk music. I have also had extensive training and experience in musical theater and finally classical.
I have numerous awards for my solo and choral singing including most notably a Grammy in 2001. I have been a chorus member and soloist at the Oregon Bach Festival, The San Luis Obispo Mozart Festival, The International Bach Akademie, and others. I have sung with the Arizona Opera Chorus and performed on the school tour of Rossini’s La Cenerentola (Cinderella). Magic Voice Studio performed the roles of gingerbread chorus for the Arizona Opera Company's 2002 production of Hansel and Gretel. I have extensive recording experience, and teach those techniques in my studio as well. I have taught public school music, private academy voice, and dozens of summer camps including the musical theater program at the Curry summer music camp at NAU. In addition to teaching at the Magic Voice Studio, I co-directed the Arizona Youth Chamber Ensemble and am the past Governor of the Arizona District of the National Association of Teachers of Singing.
I give each student a basis in vocal technique, and once the basic good habits of healthy singing have been instilled, we move on to learning the stylistic tools to give each singer the strengths they need to perform in whatever genre they choose. I work to instill basic vocal techniques and healthy singing in all students.
My methods help students achieve their goals in all styles of music. All students gain confidence in a nurturing and positive environment. I have been lauded for my boundless patience as well as my ability to make difficult intangibles accessible to all. I feel very fortunate and blessed to have been able to take all the wonderful learning experiences of my life and synthesize them into what has proved to be an excellent learning technique for all.
