Welcome to the studio,
I'm Gabrielle Stahlschmidt

I am St. Louis's vocal coach, the OYV Academy founder,
artist development coach...and your biggest cheerleader! 
I cultivate passionate, confident musicians who use their voices intentionally, both in music and in life.

If you are looking to fully understand your instrument, grow in
confidence, and experience the joy of your craft, join the community!

My love for teaching grew naturally out of my passion to encourage and inspire people on a authentic, grassroots level; because music is such a uniquely personal gift, through it, I get to encourage and empower strong, independent voices in amazing ways! 

When I say I teach, I mean I teach the whole person - I strive to teach everything a person needs for a strong foundation: that means healthy vocal technique + experienced training, yes, but it also means developing internally strong voices that produce confident and meaningful external voices, that believe in what they have to say.

In private lessons, it is my goal that my studio provides the foundational techniques required for healthy, intentional singing, advances a love for music, and ultimately fosters a rooted confidence in each student as they discover (and own!) their unique voices.  


In our studio community, my desire is to empower the next generation of strong voices. This is achieved through positive mentorship, providing a safe place for all students to explore their gifts, offering accessible and innovative extra-curricular opportunities for musical growth + collaboration, and equipping each student with the necessary tools to use their voices, both musically and personally, in creative, life-giving ways (healthy internal voices = powerful external voices!)


I love discovering incredible voices of all ages; our current students range from 9-75!

I studied at Missouri Baptist University, where I received a double bachelors, with education degrees specializing in music instruction, vocal health/production, and the psychology of learning. Music has been more of a lifestyle than a hobby for me; I have a lifetime of experience performing, recording, and writing music in a variety of genres!

Having been immersed in vocal performance for my entire musical career, I have had many amazing opportunities to perform with a wide variety of notable organizations. I have performed in choirs, acted in theater shows, competed in vocal competitions, sang with orchestras + bands, and have also written and recorded my own album with producers in Nashville, TN! It is incredibly rewarding for me to pass on the connections and the performance knowledge I have gained to my students.
