Stephanie’s musical training began at the tender age of 6 with piano lessons. Over the years she has achieved an 8th grade AMEB standard in piano. Stephanie’s passion for music has now transferred to singing. Over the past year, she has been training with Marcelle Knapp. Whilst learning as much as she can about the Performing Arts, Stephanie has had the opportunity to teach others, especially children. Stephanie has been teaching singing and after school drama for a company called “Acting Antics” for the past four years and has directed children in over 8 theatre and music theatre productions. Stephanie has even directed new female party performers at Tony Bones Entertainment from time to time, such is her experience with the company.
