About Stephen
As a more seasoned music teacher, I’m learning that it’s essential to tailor music lessons to each client’s (family’s) individual goals. And no matter what the family’s goals may be, life is too short for a music teacher to ever stress out a student or the parents. For this reason, I try my best to impart as many smiles and laughs as I can into every music lesson. Also, I have a mindset that music lessons can have high standards AND be fun, not have high standards OR be fun; however, I will always regularly communicate with parents and students to make sure that their high standards and min
e are on the same page.

As for my training, I have two degrees in vocal performance from Georgia State University and am currently “continuing education” as a staff singer at the renowned Episcopal Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta. While at Georgia State, I had the good fortune to observe in action some of the most phenomenal musicians in Atlanta: Dwight Coleman, Dr. Peter Marshall, and Maestro Michael Palmer. Since that time, I’ve studied voice privately with bass Jason Hardy and soprano Sharon Stephenson, and I’ve fine-tuned, pun intended, both my vocal and pianistic musicianship by singing in choirs led by phenomenal directors like Dr. Eric Nelson, Walter Huff, and Dr. Dale Adelmann.

And not being a stranger to accomplishments in teaching (voice and piano), in 2013 I was recognized as a Top Teacher for student retention, communication with parents and staff, general positive feedback, and overall professionalism. In addition, both my voice and piano students regularly receive superior ratings at the local National Federation of Music Clubs festivals, pass ABRSM theory and piano exams, earn leading roles in school productions, and place in local talent shows.

P.S. For potential voice students, how many of you want to be a famous opera singer? My guess is, not many of you (to say the least :) However, what if I say, who would like to pretend they’re a famous bullfighter, a bird catcher (who likes to dress like a bird), an Ancient Egyptian, or a King or Queen while singing awesome music? Hopefully, more of you would try it. That’s why I love opera and classical singing. So I encourage you to watch, not just listen to, classical singing. You may be surprised at how cool it can be.

The first lesson was superb. Andrew really enjoyed his first piano class and really liked learning it from Mr. McCool. After class, Andrew was immediately motivated to do his practice. Mr. McCool is very encouraging, he makes the lesson easy going while making his student learned quickly (without pressure). We look forward to the next lessons with him. Leaving the students with their own desire to learn and to love music is indeed very important. He delivers that traits well.

I am totally new to singing and this was my very first class so I was quite apprehensive. Stephen however was able to create a safe environment and within minutes I felt that it was right, that taking singing classes was not a crazy idea.

I am very happy and I hope I will be able to take many more classes with Stephen.

Jordan is an excellent teacher!!! Very knowledgeable and patient. He opened my eyes to a lot of the things I'm doing wrong, make the necessary adjustments and helped me solidify some things I'm working on in just a few lessons. I look forward to taking many more lessons with him and taking my bass playing to the next level.

I can't recommend Jordan enough. Not only is he a monster of a player, but he also has a huge understanding and enthusiasm for all the things musical that go along with it. He did an amazing job at breaking all of it down to my level of musical knowledge and experience so that I could easily get a grasp of it. I have been mostly self taught my entire musical career, but somehow along the way I learned how to listen and take direction pretty well. This skill, along with being at the right place at the right time, allowed me to luckily play sax on a handful of gold & platinum records for some great musicians. But after a few years of this, I ended up switching paths and got out of playing. I didn't even touch my horn for over 10 years! Finally a couple years ago, I got back into playing sax again with some friends but it was a whole new genre and approach that I had never been exposed to before. I kept crossing paths with Jordan and I was always blown away by his chops and sound. I eventually got together with him hoping he could show me some of his secrets. What I didn't expect was to finally find a teacher that not only has the education, but also the professional experience, that I could connect with. He took the time to learn what I could do, listen to what I was wanting to improve upon, and then he figured out various practice approaches for me to get there. Surprisingly even after my very first lesson with Jordan, my bandmates and I all noticed improvements in my playing and technique. I can't imagine what I would be playing like if I had met him years ago. I owe Jordan a huge debt of gratitude and always look forward to our next lesson together.
