Stephen has taught our daughter piano and voice for the past several years. He is a talented musician and a caring, patient teacher who tailors lessons to meet students’ specific needs and interests. In our case, he has challenged our daughter to develop her technical skills through the study of classical piano and theory, while at the same time supported the exploration of her own musical passions. Stephen sets clear, attainable expectations, and provides supportive, constructive feedback to both student and parent. I would highly recommend him as a teacher.
