Steven is an amazing teacher! I was skeptical at first about taking piano and singing classes online but after the first lesson I was confident that it's the best way to go. Steven knows how to motivate and scale the lessons appropriately. I've progressed so quickly and feel like I can really play the piano and sing. Don't miss out on taking lessons with Steven, you won't regret it.

Steve is patient, insightful, thoughtful, joyful, and invested in his students. I very much enjoyed our online lessons. He was more patient then I was with my progress and his encouragement helped me feel more comfortable with my frustration with incremental gains.
