About Steven

The piano has always been my greatest passion; I have never been able to imagine life without it. I was very fortunate to have had the benefit of a great education in music starting at an early age. My goal as pianist and teacher is to pass on the wisdom of my own teachers, as well as my enthusiasm for this great instrument and the rich repertoire of music written for it.

I received a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Southern California, where I was a student of Daniel Pollack for 12 years. In order to become the best teacher possible, I minored in Music Education, gaining experience in the major theories of music pedagogy and teaching techniques. In teaching, I strive to create an optimal blend of old and new by combining the great and time-honored traditions ...

Kimberly is a gifted and accomplished musician with technical knowledge and experience which is evident in her teaching style. She quickly assessed my skill level and adjusted my lessons to build on what I already knew and in a few short weeks has helped me make significant progress.

My 9-year-old son has been taking cello lessons with Jessica for about 4 weeks and it has been a great experience. Jessica is very professional and competent teacher, always being on time, communicating in a very fun and engaging way, and assigning homework very clearly. Andrew very much enjoys the classes and, as a result, he is even more motivated to play the cello. I would highly recommend Jessica.

It's been so fun taking lessons from Jessica. She is interested in finding out the student's learning method and tailors the lessons accordingly. I'm on week 3 and I'm enjoying myself so much! I was a little nervous about taking lessons through Skype, but she's been able to teach me almost seamlessly, of course there's some difficulties because she can't get a 360 view of how I'm playing, but that's something we can accommodate to.
