As a credentialed music educator, I consider myself very unique. I have taught multiple stringed instruments including the violin, viola, bass, but most of all the cello. I have also had chances to teach band. I have taught in the classroom for over several years and have had experiences with children ranging from elementary to high school.

I have always had a passion for the cello and have had unique experiences with which I would like to bestow upon students via exposure to performances. One of which is a chance to perform in Pasadena at the Bungalow Heaven event where my students (also in the past) get a chance to perform in a beautiful venue and give a wonderful recital. As well, I teach my students how to perform along with my to emulate a chamber setting. Lastly, I have worked to prepare my students for auditions into orchestral ensembles and develop ensemble skills.

Hi new students,

My name is Stephen. I hope you find me well. I'm a low key and nice guy and a good cellist. If you are looking to learn the cello at your own pace and have a patient teacher to be there to help you out, I'm your friend.

Regarding my history, I have been a credentialed music educator for many years. I have taught in several schools (K-12), small group settings, and individually. I have taught lessons, set up performances in concert halls, given master classes, and have organized recitals for students in various settings.

As a cellist, I have performed in such ensembles Vivace Youth Orchestra in London, England, Valley Symphony Orchestra, CSUN Symphony Orchestra, the Summer Orchestra at Forrest Lawn, the Los Angeles Junior Philharmonic Orchestra, Masters College Orchestra, Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra, Walt Disney Concert Hall, Mission College Symphony, the Santa Clarita Philharmonic, and studio work at the Warner Bros. Studio and Capital Records
