The voice is the grandest instrument of all instruments. For 20 years, Steven B is one of the best instructors out there. He teaches in students’ homes across the United States as easily as in the Coronado Music Studio. Provide teaching at all stages. All skill levels taught. Complete beginners are welcome. Mr. Bruce intersects methodologies of Bel Canto, Alexander's technique, and the secrets of singing. By the way, Alexander’s technique can bring back to health a damaged speaking voice, as well as keeping the singer’s voice sound and pain free. Broken down, singing involves three areas: mind, technique, and performance. There are many technical concepts to train in singing. From vowel shapes, to understanding consonants, to landing gently on high notes. Great technique leads to great expression. Steven B is skilled in educating a student for an audition or performance. The chief purpose of singing is to bring oneself joy. Prepare to learn a lot and have fun!

Reviews From Students and Parents (Piano - Guitar - Voice)
“I just wanted to say Thank You and let you know how much I appreciate all the information and help you have given Mikey. You helped him form a great hobby that he loves to do and the family loves to hear. He has come so far since his first lesson and I am happy you kept the Piano lessons interesting for him. Thanks again for being a kind, great teacher to him.” - Cheryl, 5 Stars!
“Steven B, a patient, gifted teacher has supervised my studies on guitar with good humor, wit and flexibility. I would recommend him without hesitation to players young and old.” - Tim, 5 Stars!
“I took voice and piano lessons in Steven B’s Coronado Music Studio and also online via Skype. Both experiences were great, and it was really convenient to do the lessons on Skype. Steven B is an excellent teacher, and he is very patient. I recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to play an instrument or sing!” - Kat , 5 Stars!
“Steven B’s fun and patient teaching style rocks. I see how his bright, fun-loving personality, and knowledge of music for piano makes him top choice as my daughter’s music instructor.” - Anthony, 5 Stars!
“Steven B is a wonderful teacher! He is talented, always enthusiastic, and extremely motivational! Each lesson is designed specifically for our daughter Kelsey's ability and desired genre of music! Kelsey began guitar and vocal lessons in the Coronado studio and is now taking lessons via Skype since our move to Virginia. The lessons are convenient, affordable, and productive. We are excited to be able to still have Steven B as her guitar and vocal teacher!” - Amy, 5 Stars!
“I came to Steven B as a beginner in piano and I took the piano lessons on my Casio keyboard. I just wanted to learn my favorite songs. Steven B got me into the music I really enjoy! In only three months, I was able to play and sing a song I truly love titled “Angel” from Sarah McLachian. My teacher said I performed it as well as the artist. My friends, loved my performance of the song!” - Katrina, 5 Stars!
“My son has taken guitar and voice lessons with Steven B for the last year. We are pleased with classes and the improvement we've seen in comparison to a previous instructor. Steven B is punctual and extremely respectful of the time and money it takes to provide lessons. He can be counted on to be both friendly and professional. He comes prepared for lessons and expects the same of his students. If you are serious about learning and improving your skills, we highly recommend him.” - Christina, 5 Stars!
“My time in being instructed by Steven B on piano was a great, informative experience. Ever since the first lesson, he is a very good teacher that clearly knows what he is doing. Mr. B. taught me at my own pace, taking time to help me work on skills, especially small details that help me perform much better. He is a very skilled instructor, teaching me pieces from not only music books that he provides, but also the valuable skill of learning by ear, a skill few other teachers bother to touch on. Steven B has helped on a number of occasions with songs that I am learning on my own and fit time into our lessons to work on them. He is always willing to let the student work on what they like as well as what he gives out. When I once mentioned my liking for jazz, we soon started an in-depth series of lessons into the genre, teaching me much more than I ever knew prior to it. I’ve never felt pressured by my assignments and pieces to bring home, as Steven B knows everyone goes at their own pace and can take anytime from a few days to a few weeks to learn a song. My time with him was a very fun and informative time that I thoroughly enjoyed.” - Michael, 5 Stars!

Steven is an excellent instructor. After the first lesson, my vocal chords were tired but felt like I actually did something! He is extremely well-prepared, explains what he is trying to do, demonstrates the exercises and then offers feedback on your efforts. Top notch instructor!

My daughter age 11 has grown so much over this last year and a half working with Mr. Bruce in the gift of her voice, tools to improve range, pitch and how to care for her voice! He has Excellent patience and dedication in helping the student grow and learn.
Teaching Philosophy: I work closely with students to create a safe environment for learning and growth. We return the voice to its natural state with a science based approach. Each exercise has a purpose to help strengthen the systems used in healthy singing. Through this approach students effectively expand range, improve vocal tone and breath control. Once the voice is optimized through healthy technique, limitations fall to the wayside.
Do you want to learn to write and sing music? Are you interested in Melody, Lyrics, Arrangements or even the Business side of the industry? If any of these tickle your fancy, I would love to be your teacher! Whether you are a rockstar in the shower, or you have no musical experience, I can help you find the tools and to learn the skills you need to reach your goals!

I have really enjoyed Zelda’s class!! She is brilliant on what she does.
April 16, 2019
Zelda is a fantastic singing teacher. I felt a good vibe when I read her bio. I started out doing a half hour lessons and changed it to hour long lessons on the first lesson. She has helped me advance in my skills. She makes it relaxing, right off the bat, when you walk in and she offer's you tea. She is very patient and helpful. I've taken five lessons and signed up for five more.
Danny is versatile in various styles. The kicker is that he assessed my voice and then found out I had a few trouble spots and I was shy about
singing in my higher registers. Not anymore! I noticed a difference in my first lesson. Homework was emailed to me and I was told if I work through it daily Ill see results in the first week...No lie.. It actually works."
"She is a superb instructor
Vanessa is very knowledgeable and takes the time to teach her student well. Very professional also."
"very helpful and professional guy. I loved the class. CL"
"My first lesson with Joshua could not have gone better. He is extremely easy to work with, a super nice guy, and a great teacher. He took some time to get
to know me before jumping into the lesson and I really feel that was an amazing and unique thing to do, he truly cares about his students.
Joshua has the whole package. I came into this just wanting singing lessons, but he is also going to help me with songwriting and performance techniques, which are both things I truly want as well as the singing lessons.
I can't wait until next time!"
"My first lesson was already the best singing lesson I've ever had. Laurelanne is not only patient, encouraging and challenging, she's sweet, nurturing and
fun. Her relaxed style is welcomed and her wide range of technique and expertise is appreciated. She motivates me to continue on my path to not just ding, but be a singer. I can't wait for the rest of the lessons and results."
"Heather is amazing!! I've had a couple of voice teachers in the past and she is by far the best!! She individually tailors her lessons to my interests and
goals. She is also very encouraging and patient. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to enhance themselves musically."
"no time wasted!
eric is an awesome teacher! i've only just begun lessons with him, but he wastes no time, is on time and accommodating. i hadn't sung in
quite some time, and he really focused on learning my voice in order to tailor the lesson appropriately. will be coming back on the reg ~"

While Glee helped make choir groups "cool" again, The Sing Off has brought a cappella singing to the spotlight. This is truly a battle of the voices, as per …
