My son said he learned a lot of knowledge about oboe today. She's very patience and nice. Now I know how pretty an oboe can sound! :)

Fantastic teacher all around. I'm enjoying my lessons with Stepher and taking advantage of her knowledge of theory, technique, guidance, evaluation and assignments.
