Are you a songwriter who would like to improve your skills? I'm here to help. I've been writing songs since I was 12 years old, and I want to help you learn some tricks of the trade, methods to overcome writer's block and teach you how to brainstorm new ideas and improve on some old ones.

About Stephanie A.

Hi, there! My name is Stephanie and I can't wait to meet you! I am a singer/songwriter with more than 25 years personal experience. I wrote my first song when I was 12 years old and was singing before I could talk. I have been playing the guitar since I was 15 years old. I studied Fine and Performing Arts at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and was featured on a few albums showcasing local musicians.
I home schooled my children for a number of years and taught a guitar class at our local home school co-op in years past. I began teaching online in 2020 after the pandemic hit and have loved every minute of working and learning with children and adults!
As a guitar and ukulele teacher, I focus on students gaining confidence on the instrument and help them to begin playing chords from their first lesson. I teach the theoretical parts of the instrument in the context of playing and strive to have a welcoming, relaxed, and fun teaching environment. I would love to help you or your student develop and improve your musical skills.
For more about me and some of my favorite music and teaching tips and tricks, check out my posts on the TakeLessons blog!

Stephanie is wonderful! She is engaging, encouraging, enthusiastic and fun! She is also patient and really takes the time to assess her students and give explicit direction to move them forward. My daughter has come a long way in just 4 lessons! Great choice!!

I've known Stephanie for ages. We were musicians in highschool together, and here...20 years later, she's STILL able to find ways for me to improve, both technically and artistically!
