My daughter is 12 and just had her first lesson with Dr. Stephanie. We both were so incredibly pleased with the lesson! Dr. Stephanie was warm, welcoming, intelligent and clearly incredibly experienced. My daughter can't stop talking about how much she loved the lesson and she just can't wait for her next one!
Scott K. Tucson, AZ

From producing your first note to Pop and Jazz songs to seriously intense Classical music.

About Scott

As a composer I have found it necessary never to stray too far from performance. The shear exhilaration one can obtain through playing an instrument is unique and powerful. I have devoted my life to trying to understand and master this elusive beast we call Music. As a child, of a peculiar spirit, I demanded my parents get me guitar and piano lessons. I felt an instant connection to these instruments and was compelled to investigate. After years of inquiry I ended up attending New School for the Arts, a high school devoted to the arts where I studied music composition. From there, I went on to the University of Arizona to receive degrees in Music Composition and Philosophy with minors in Mathematics and English Literature. For my Masters' programs I wondered into the world of ...

Learning to play the piano as been pleasant and engaging!

When I first starting taking lessons with Scott I had never taken piano lessons or even knew how to play. Scott knows classical piano music very well and introduced me to great piano pieces for beginners to get started on learning how to play. The lessons will move at your pace and the challenge will never be no more than you can handle. Now I will most likely make it a long term goal to get better and better thanks to his help.

I wish I had much more time with Scott

I have only had two lessons, and now find that I have to take a hiatus because of my partner's health. We will be going to California for 3 months of proton radiation therapy for his cancer.Scott has been really terrific with me. He is patient, kind, and has opened new avenues in my understanding of music. I will continue to work on the things he as taught me. I expect that when I get back into the lessons, I will need to start over because there isn't a piano in California for me to practice on. I know that Scott will take this into consideration when this happens. I think Scott is terrific. If you are considering piano lessons, then check him out.
Julia G. Tucson, AZ

Being able to play the piano is such a ….wonderful experience.
You can learn so many pieces with a beginner skill and then as you advance you will be able to play such beautiful repertoire and find yourself as a musician in the process.

About Julia

I began my study of music as a child with the study of piano. I also played and performed clarinet in the school band and marching band (highlight of my youth!), played and performed duet piano works, and also the organ. I was initiated by my native Swiss grandparents into dance and yodel music, which then interested me in ethnic music, in conjunction with my classical music studies. In addition to my music studies, I played intercollegiate sports and studied zoology. The schools I studied at were Western Illinois University, Northern Illinois University, Buffalo State College, and then onto University of New Mexico to begin a Master’s Program. Upon moving to Manhattan, I studied with a well-known voice coach in the opera world, Tom LaMonaco. I also studied voice with Nancy Ribakov and

Great teacher, and fun as well!

Julia has been a wonderful piano teacher. I went to her to learn a song I was attempting by myself, not really thinking about continuing lessons. Julia has made piano lessons fun and interesting, and is really good at figuring out how others learn. I've been really enjoying my lessons and plan on coming back for as long as possible!

Wonderful Teacher

Julia was a wonderful teacher for my 8-yr old! She is so patient with children, whose attention may be wandering. In our 6 months of lessons, my daughter learned to identify all of the notes on the musical staff, timing, could play two-handed scales, and several songs. I couldn't believe how fast she learned, all because of Julia's guidance and skill at knowing what was right for her at her level (beginner)!
