Kyle is a great piano teacher! He is very patient with my 12-year old son. Just yesterday he referred to him as “fun Kyle” because he teaches him small songs on the side that he can show friends and family or are for upcoming holidays. He’s always punctual and respectful of our family and home. I’m grateful to have found him!

Being a violin and viola teacher for the past 25 years, I love imparting to my students the how-to of tone production, and can teach from beginner all the way to auditions. My teaching experience covers over 3 decades. Your tuition includes participation in my monthlyu master class Saturday mornings. If you are online, you may Skype in and perform or observe. I am of a direct teaching lineage to the legendary Clara Schumann. My students have won competitions. Have a teaching channel on-line, that shows the proof of my work. If you follow my micro-management and practice directions, you will succeed with your goals!!

About Stephanie

I am a career musician, and conservatory trained violin, piano and vocal instructor with over 40 years teaching experience, and a resume spanning many pages. I also am a well endorsed composer and public speaker. Furthermore, I LOVE teaching! I am a competition judge, member of National Music T

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.
Hui F.
Stephanie helped my younger one prepare for competition. She was highly skillful, supportive yet strict. Initially, my girl was a bit nervous to work with Stephanie because of her high reputation. Stephanie was very kind and fun, using metaphors to help my 10-year old understand the music. She not only helped my child overcome barriers to master the music piece but also shared much practical advice for competition. We did not expect this but my 10-year old won the first prize and was invited to perform in Carnegie Hall New York. Highly recommend Stephanie!!!

"My daughter,Kloe,has been taking lessons from Kevin since last year. She has never had any lessons before and was a beginner. Kevin has a passion for music and his students and it shows in his teaching. He is patient and lets the student learn at their own pace. He provides them with instruction on what to work on for the next lesson and any tools that may help with the student's progress. Kevin involves the parents on their child's achievements and sends weekly updates to the parents so they know what their child needs to focus on. I highly recommend Kevin !!!"

""I've been going to lessons with Susan since the middle of June and I am so impressed! My parents have noticed that my singing voice has gotten much better with every single lesson that I've had with her. Susan is a very caring, gentle woman and I never feel judged when I'm singing with her. She gives credit where credit is due and helps you improve in aspects of your voice without making you feel bad about yourself. I definitely recommend choosing Susan to be you or your child's vocal coach!"
