Clarinet · In studio

Teaching not only requires technical expertise, but it also requires kindness and thoughtfulness. Stephanie is a master at all these things, and learning from her is a genuinely awesome experience.

Ms. Kuborssy sure does know her stuff when it comes to music! She's not only professional and talented but also a great teacher. She's very patient with beginners but also knows how to push those that really have the potential to do something great. If you have a chance, definitely study with Ms. K!!!
