Stephen also guided my son through the college audition process, providing targeted feedback on everything from music selections to proper preparation, while offering realistic insight into the process. Stephen has been a fantastic influence and I am most grateful.

Stephen has made may alterations to his teaching style to accommodate my visual impairment, enabling me to continually learn music in a most rewarding fashion.
I am learning how to read music, play by ear and practice songs of my choosing as well as standard practice lessons.
I am grateful to have such a professional, patient and understanding teacher who is excited about music and teaching it.
I have to recommend taking lessons with him as a beginner and as an advanced skilled individual looking to brush up on your skills
I am excited at the beginning and end of every lesson. I walk out with something to look forward to practicing and something to come back to my lesson to show.
