I am very good with young learners and provide lots of encouragement and motivation for elementary aged students. I prefer the "Piano Adventure" series by Randal and Nancy Faber. There are a lot of options for supplemental materials for every learner.

About Stephanie H.

I have been teaching for over 15 years and my unique versatility as an educator has given me the experience I need to be successful. I am an Orff-Schulwerk trained teacher, a philosophy is based on building musicianship through singing, playing instruments, speech, and movement in a child-centered way. I have an outstanding rapport with children in the classroom and in one-on-one instruction. I am also a leader and a performer whether I am conducting songs at all-school assemblies, singing in the community choir, or playing rock music in a club. In addition to the many creative projects outside of work, I am an active board member of my local Orff-Schulwerk chapter that helps to promote a network of music educators.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am more of a laid back teacher who likes to set realistic goals with my students. For example, performing songs for others is a great way to motivate learning music and can be fun for friends and family. I like to use the Nancy and Randall Faber series Piano Adventures for elementary aged children; I prefer the FJH series for guitar. Some of the things I hope my students take away from lessons are better technique, literacy and musicality.

*** Studio Equipment ***
electronic clavanova keyboard, seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect my piano & guitar students to have an instrument they can practice and use daily and to purchase their own books.

*** Specialties ***
The styles that work well for me are pop, classical and jazz, as well as R & B, funk and soul.

Having a lot of fun

My seventeen year-old daughter has been taking voice lessons with Stephanie for over a year. Stephanie has helped her broaden her musical interests and has encouraged her to try new things; Stephanie also listens to what my daughter wants to do and is willing to work with her on music from local Twin Cities artists.

My daughter's confidence in her singing has gone up tremendously. My daughter and I both look forward to her voice lesson every week.

Fun, Smart, Creative, Kind, and All Around Awesome

Stephanie has a wonderful ability to balance light-hearted humor and kid-friendly goofiness with effective instruction and inspiration. Our son has taken lessons with her for just 6 months, but his ability has shot up. His love and enjoyment of piano are directly related to her superior skills.

Stephanie teaches guitar to my 9-year-old son and piano to my 7-year-old daughter. Both of my kids look forward to their lessons all week! Stephanie is fantastic with children, and knows how to keep their interest and motivate them to want to learn more. She is always on time, very professional and disciplined, and my kids just love working with her!

In touch and in tune with students

Stephanie brings out the best in her students and taps into their potential. She knows where to begin the instruction based on the temperment and the ability of the student. For younger students, she adds a few popular songs in the repertoire to help keep the student's interest. My daughter always has looked forward to her lessons with Stephanie, which is a huge compliment!

Doing a great job with our daughter

Stephanie began with our 10 year old daughter a month ago, and is doing a wonderful job. We are thrilled with her approach, and so is our daughter. Bravo!
