The Stephen Purdy Studio of New York City is an elite vocal training studio for Musical Theatre performers. Through these doors pass and have passed Tony, Oscar and Grammy award winning voices but when we are within these walls we all share the same goals and aspirations:

We seek to free the natural voice, cultivate and foster a voice which will endure for a lifetime and to open the channels of the body and spirit so that we can get on with the business of dramatic expression, interpretation and emotional release.

“Stephen is nothing short of genius. He is kind, intelligent, and knows the voice inside and out. He is easily one of the best if not the best vocal coach New York City has to offer.”

Danny George
Founder of The Growing Studio
