Bachelors in Music Education from Southern Oregon University
Stephanie was just fabulous, introducing my grandson to the saxophone. She was very nurturing and encouraging, yet gave me tons of information. I highly recommend her.
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!!!Show More

I hold a bachelors degree in Music Education. I have just completed my Masters in Music Education degree and am eager to build up a woodwind studio again! Clarinet is my primary instrument and can teach beginning, intermediate and advanced students. I also can teach beginning and intermediate sax and flute. I strive to create experiences with my students where instant success is being achieved in each lesson. I love to incorporate fun and variation in my teaching, no two lessons are the same!! Its never to late to begin learning an instrument, all ages and abilities are welcome!
