I have taught music (K-8) in a private school in Palo Alto for 13 years and have created a very successful program. I conduct 5 bands, an orchestra and a beginner string ensemble. I have started hundreds of children on instruments and have taught dozens of children privately with great results.

Stephen has lots of experience teaching kids and was great with my daughter. He adapted to her level of experience and gave her goals to strive for next time. Very pleased with the whole experience.

My 10 years old son loves the way Steve teaches. My son is a beginner on trumpet, but Steve stays calm and make his lesson fun for my son. Not too much pressure, just a daily practice of 10 mins or so. My son is looking forward to his lesson!

Stephen is a patient instructor and proactively analyzed my son's abilities(and lack thereof) before making necessary adjustments. I appreciate that he catches what the student is doing wrong and helps to correct it on the spot. Highly recommended.

Stephen is the perfect teacher for my 14 year old son who is a beginner on trumpet. My son enjoys trumpet as a hobby, and plays in his school band. Stephen's lessons are fun and low pressure. He is remarkably calm and professional, and he doesn't waste any lesson time. My son looks forward to his lessons with Stephen.
