My first lesson was a real happy one, I was nervous and stressed about starting. Ms. Stephanie was very pleasant, explained things so I could comprehend it., she was strong in confidence yet happy in mild in teaching style. I’m very hopeful I will learn a lot from this brilliant teacher.

I am an adult beginner violinist. When I first met Stephanie, I had barely touched a violin, but I was determined to learn how to play it. With her help and patience, I am progressing through the Suzuki method as well as doing ear training and music theory. Stephanie is an excellent musician as well as instructor! Her method of teaching keeps the students engaged, encouraged and excited about learning music from all sides of it.
Naomi G.
I strongly recommend Ms. Quinn. She is amazing. I love a teacher who is passionate about what she does and Ms. Quinn has motivated me to love the violin and work harder to improve. She is slightly strict but very patience and kind, always pushing you to work hard and do your best. I learned to play violin a few years ago as a beginner and stopped playing for a few years. I was nervous to begin online violin lessons considering that I learn better face to face. However, Ms. Quinn has done an amazing job at teaching me, I have been taking lessons with her for a year now and have learned so much I didn’t know before which has also grown my love for violin.

Private Music Theory Teacher

An experienced educator specializing in student-focused lessons. Not every method will work for every student, therefore I will seek to customize the lessons to the students. My goal is to guide the students in reaching their goals and helping them enjoy the process. I enjoy helping students understand the why behind the music and seeing the complexity of the music theory, relationships in keys and chords, and the components of the musical form.

Looking for experience? Customized lessons? Encouraging feedback? Positive error correction? With a wide range of teaching experiences and a love of education, I am always searching for the best methods for my students. Seeking the best way to guide my students began with my education d

Gwen is a fantastic teacher! Several years ago, my then 3rd grader joined Gwen's homeschool one day a week for science, PE, field trips and recorder lessons. My daughter had a fabulous time! Gwen really is one of the best, most well-rounded homeschool teachers I know and is capable of integrating beyond these specific subjects she teaches. She really listens to your goals, concerns and needs and is creative in coming up with solutions... All so your child can learn most effectively!

Gwen did a fantastic job of teaching my struggling writer annotating literature and writing. She answered all of his questions, and gave advice when he struggled to understand the content. Her consistently positive attitude and outlook was a real encouragement to him.

How to Change the Key of a Song With and Without a Computer

What Does it Mean to Change a Key? To change a song’s “key” means to shift the whole musical system to a higher or lower position. This process is called “transposition.” Performers often need transpose a song to better fit their voices. That way, a performer with a naturally lower singing voice (like myself) will be able to more comfortably sing a song that was originally written for someone with a naturally higher voice. Or vice versa.  For singers, transposition feels fairly …

Here, Pittsburgh voice teacher Jennifer V. reveals her unique ROYGBIV method...   Has your child ever come home in tears because they just couldn’t master a skill they learned in school? You listen, wipe their tears and tell them “Tomorrow is a new day,” and “I know you can do it!” But the next day he or she comes home upset about th …

Why You Should Learn (At Least a Little) Music Theory

One of the most common weaknesses for amateur musicians is a lack of music theory knowledge. Many people assume that learning theory is difficult (it isn’t) that it has no practical purpose (it does), or even that it will actively make them worse at making music (quite the opposite). I’m here to convince you that learning a little about how music works is one of the most important skills you can develop and should absolutely be part of your daily practice routine. Here are five reasons w …
