“There’s no way to overstate the impact Aimée Steele has had on my vocal technique, artistry, career, and life.

What if someone could open parts of your bodily instrument you didn’t know existed? What if in doing so, that person helped you step into your fullness of spirit? And what if this person made you feel instantly at home in your choice to make what you love into what you do? To me, that’s Aimée.

I came to New York City from New Orleans, alone and without much training. Aimée very matter-of-factly refused to accept any of my nay-saying, and instead set to work righting the ship. What’s more, she did so with a style and generosity that was insistent but kind (wise). She helped me make choices. Some she suggested, some she drew out of my intuition. She helped create my book and forged my auditions from almost nothing. She put herself on the line with her industry colleagues to vouch for me.

I’m lucky to have found Aimée, as I tell her perhaps too often. She has somehow managed to earn both my reverence as a vulnerable student and camaraderie as a trusted friend. Her lessons have bled into the rest of my life, as at their root is simply: joy.”

Aimée Steele creates an environment for learning and refining that is full of positivity, warmth, transparency, and inspiration. She is a voice wizard, and you leave each lesson with the tools to tackle your material with confidence and ease. She inspires, challenges, nurtures, and effortlessly joins you to musical comfort. I find training with Aimée incredibly special because each lesson is centered on the entire human being–highlighting strengths and conquering mental, physical, and emotional barriers, while working on material to expand the artist as a whole. My vocal toolbox grew exponentially while working with Aimée, and I use her tips and technique before, during, and after every performance. With Aimée’s guidance, I found freedom in my voice, and together we created healthy and unique interpretations of my material. Aimée’s superpower lies in her ability to make you feel supported, literally and vocally, while expanding your individual artistry. She is an artist’s advocate and the best to have in your corner!

One’s vibration is effortlessly elevated upon entering Aimee’s studio.

Energy rebalancing is inevitable with physical, emotional, mental alignment attained during your session.

Aimee’s technique allows students to trust their inner voice thereby eliminating pressure, push and strain. It’s as though the sound is sounding itself.

What emerges is organic, natural sound and a joyful student. Aimee is a gifted teacher, advanced soul, cherished colleague, and trusted friend.

Aimée Steele combines perfect exactitude with perfect love – for the student, for the technique, and for the storytelling that is more the sum of all the parts that go into our work.

I returned to studying voice after a nearly two decade hiatus and she has brought me back to a way of singing freer than what I had in my 20s.  We have only worked together a year but in that time I have had my Off-Broadway debut and been asked (not auditioned) to participate in two prestigious staged readings with directors on, or on their way to, Broadway.  It is impossible to speak highly enough about her work.  Thank you Aimée!

Through my work with Aimée my voice has changed significantly. My vocal range has expanded, my breath support has gotten stronger and I’m more confident vocally before heading into the studio or before a show because of the tools Aimée has given me. But the greatest gift from our work together goes beyond vocal technique. She’s helped me understand who I am as an entertainer and use my voice to express it, on stage and off. For me lessons with her have been – quite unexpectedly – lessons in life.

Aimee Steele is such a wonderful teacher and person and she continues to help me strengthen my voice. She has taught me how to belt properly and it feels great!! I was never able to belt the higher pop songs before and now I have learned the correct support that I need to sing without straining my voice. All of her vocal exercises have helped me develop techniques that I can rely on in performance or auditions. I have improved in EVERY aspect of my singing. Aimée doesn’t only focus on your singing technique, she also helps with stage presentation, audition technique and the acting of each song. Every lesson I learn something new. I am very proud to have Aimée as my vocal coach, and anyone who does is SO lucky!
