Mr. Chapman is a great piano teacher. I was originally classically trained in piano but never really got into jazz, improvisation, and other styles of music after as much. Mr. Chapman has guided me through the various types of modern music, explained well the intricacies of jazz styles (i.e. bossa nova, jazz waltz, ballads), and gave me useful pointers on my improvisation since I just started now. He was also very willing to help in case something on the sheet music does not make sense. Overall, I feel like I have improved a lot in my piano playing and I was very happy to learn from him. This review was made by Gregory, Prith’s son.

I've been taking piano lessons from Steve for a year now. I played many years ago but, unlike a riding a bicycle, one forgets. I went back to the beginning and was so pleased to find that Steve intersperses theory, technique and even fun facts with the usual fingering, rhythm and tempo. I'm learning so much more than I did before. He's a stickler for getting each song just right, but does so gradually with lots of positive encouragement. I even bring my "special songs" to work on alongside the lesson book. I so look forward to each lesson!

I had been looking for someone to help me with my voice lessons and I came across this app. So right away I tried to contact this one guy and got no response. Then I get a message from Mr Steve Chapman who says he was willing to work with me in the areas I was struggling in. Mr Steve is a very patient and caring teacher, he takes his time to explain things to you, he helped increase my skills in breathing and how to form my words when singing, not to mention the confidence I have in singing in front of ppl. I could go on and on, if you ever need someone for voice lessons Mr Steve is your guy. I will truly miss my lessons
