Steven is an amazing teacher! I was skeptical at first about taking piano and singing classes online but after the first lesson I was confident that it's the best way to go. Steven knows how to motivate and scale the lessons appropriately. I've progressed so quickly and feel like I can really play the piano and sing. Don't miss out on taking lessons with Steven, you won't regret it.

Excellent instructor. We have been working on singing and playing guitar for 2 years now and every lesson is challenging yet easy to follow. I can definitely tell the difference. Would highly recommend for anyone interested in improving their musical ability, beginner or advanced.

Sorcha takes the time to completely understand what you want out of the lessons and how you learn best, then she does a fantastic job of tailoring each practice session to your needs. I love how she observes when you play and catches subtle points to help you improve your performance and get more out of your practice; she really wants to help you learn and enjoy!
She also has great knowledge of various topics in music that you can tap into.

I've been teaching piano for 8 years and my students have gone on to enjoy performing and playing the piano in multiple facets. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play some of your favorite songs and as time goes on you'll be able to perform for your family and friends. I specialize in classical, pop & rock, typically use Bastien books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
