I love tailoring lessons to my students! Music is personal and I want to make sure you're learning what you're interested in or need to learn in order to prepare you for auditions or keep up in groups you play in. I always ask students for a list of music they're listening to or want to learn - nothing's off limits!
About Stephanie Y.

I started Suzuki violin lessons at the age of 3 and went on to receive a Bachelor of Music degree from UW-Milwaukee. In following years, I did post graduate work at Alverno College and went on to complete Suzuki teacher training in Suzuki Books 1-4. Besides teaching private violin, viola, and piano lessons, I perform regularly with Fretless Strings, Bowtime, Nine Worlds Ensemble, Animal Farm, Electric 5, and occasionally with various orchestras. I've had the extreme pleasure of performing with such notables as the rock band Kansas, Peter Cetera from the rock group Chicago, Rod Stewart, Final Fantasy "Distant Worlds: Milwaukee" show, Doc Severinsen, Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, Riot Fest with That Dog., and with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. I've also had the privilege of recording music for Milwaukee Public Television as well as for Chicago-area composers and singer-songwriters.

My 11 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Stephanie for over a year now. Stephanie is absolutely amazing. I would HIGHLY recommend her anyone!!!!

Stephanie is an amazing instructor. It is very evident that she loves playing and teaching the violin. She is very accommodating and even came to our home to ensure my daughter recieved her lesson when a scheduling conflict arose. My daughter truly enjoys working with Stephanie and takes it upon herself to practice between lessons.

Wonderful instructor, professional, motivating and hard working. My daughter was prepped for her audition in her five lessons. Stephanie polished off my daughter's performance. Thank you for your fervent spirit.
