Steven has been working with my daughter in piano and singing. The first lesson he discussed with her what she'd like to achieve, and they set goals for them to work towards, which I love. My daughter really enjoy's working with Steven and practicing piano is no longer a chore for her. He's teaching style is a great fit for her, and in 4 weeks she's learned more from Steven than she has from other instructors we've had. I have no trouble recommending Steven.

I would like to say Steven was an amazing piano teacher for my 5 year old and he really was able to teach him a lot of the basics and some neat tunes. He is great with kids and with my child being 5 and needing a lot of patience it was really a breeze for Steven to teach and keep his attention during the lesson. He is definitely a natural at what he does! I am very satisfied with Steven and his style of teaching. He is a well deserved five star rating and I can not wait till my son gets to start guitar lessons with him in the future.

Steve is an awesome teacher and very patient. He has a vast knowledge of music theory and is great at figuring out a difficult piece. He is also extremely patient and calm, all characteristics of a good teacher.

Steve is terrific. His lesson plans teach the fundamental skills while keeping my son interested with relevant music. My son loves to practice and looks forward to seeing Steve. My musical career was ruined early on with intense study of music theory. Instead, my son is learning to express his love music by playing. The theory can come along later when he's older and his love of playing and skills are well established.
Highly recommend lessons with Steve.

Steven is a very knowledgeable instructor with piano and music theory. He was very patient, allowed me to pick my own music, and very accommodating with my schedule. I would recommend Steven to anyone looking for a personable and knowledge instructor!

Steven was kind, considerate (seriously listened to my guitar goals and concerns), very knowledgeable about music and the guitar. I am glad I met and chose him.
