Having received a full music scholarship competing in a concerto competition on violin, Steven attended the University of Wisconsin (Madison). Feeling limited by the purely-classical university approach, however, he turned to the study of jazz and blues piano, songwriting, and improvisational techniques. After graduating, Steven lived and taught in Lampang, Thailand, for a year. While there he gave lessons on piano and violin to members of the Lampang community.

Moving back to Chicago after his year abroad, Steven now performs and records with his rock group, The Dirty Nines. He has been teaching in-home lessons in the area for 3 years. This amounts to over 20 years of playing and performing experience on piano and violin (with occasional vocal and ...

I believe that anyone has an innate musical ability. I have over 10 years of teaching experience and the most valuable lesson I have learned is adaptability. Lessons cannot be given in a cookie cutter form, they must be shaped to fit the individual.

"Excellent violin teacher

Charlene has done a wonderful job with teaching my 6 year old daughter the fundamentals of playing the violin using the Suzuki method. She has not only helped technically, but has also given my daughter the encouragement and patience necessary to develop her confidence with playing. Her high level of experience and passion for playing the violin is very evident. I would highly recommend Charlene to anyone looking to improve their performance with this instrument."

"My lesson with Stephanie was great! I was very nervous about how my teacher would make me feel, as I can get easily embarrassed and anxious when I’m not doing things right, and she made me feel like I was doing amazing the entire time! Giving me corrections casually and kindly! After only one lesson I have already greatly improved, and she has made the lesson plans fit my individual wants and needs! She’s absolutely fantastic!😁"

"Keiko has been teaching my daughter violin for 6 years. She has taught my daughter from how to hold a violin all the way to winning an international violin competition and performing at Carnegie Hall. She has been an inspiring role model for my daughter’s appreciation of music and passion to learn violin. We often attend Keiko’s concerts and my daughter enjoys to see her teacher perform as professional violinist on stage.

Keiko’s patience and her encouraging way of teaching makes the learning experience fun for my daughter. Her dedication to teaching and her efforts to support young students’ music talent - not only focused on the techniques but also their lifetime love for music - make her the best violin teacher!"

I would definitely recommend him for any of the instruments class' he teaches."
