About Steve P.

Steve began his musical journey on the piano as a child, later moving on to explore
clarinet and trumpet in band before discovering the French horn in high school.
Though he earned his bachelor of music in horn performance at CSU, Sacramento, he never gave
up the piano, teaching students and accompanying choirs throughout college, and
earning scholarships for both instruments.



Steve has played for a number of musical groups, from orchestras, chamber
groups and community bands to being a pit musician in musical theater and
opera. This year, he will be joining the William Jessup University Wind
Ensemble and playing horn in that group. For the last several years, Steve has
directed the orchestra at his church, and has also arranged hymns and worship music
for church orchestras and smaller ensembles.



Besides teaching piano and horn, Steve's musical interests include music theory, arranging, composition, piano ensemble playing and ethnomusicology.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching children and adults for the past 15 years. I have worked
in public schools as a band instructor, choir director, orchestra director and
general music teacher. I have also taught English and Spanish classes. My private
piano and horn students have enjoyed playing from a wide variety of musical
styles from classical to modern.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano

*** Specialties ***
I choose from a variety of publications, depending on the nature of the student. I strive to have my students become well rounded by learning a variety of music literature and learning theory, scales, chord progressions, and integrate sight-reading as a regular component of lessons.
