Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I want to help students discover and awaken their true potential as a musician. I believe in a comprehensive approach to teaching. I realize the value of learning proper technique to prevent bad habits and injuries later down the road. I also believe in the value of understanding music theory, allowing the student to further develop skills that can also be used in areas outside of music, such as school and in the workplace. Once these basics are established, we can then apply these principles to the student’s taste in music. Above all, I want my students to cultivate their passion and confidence for playing and creating music. As someone who began studying music at the age of six, I love bringing the joy of music to students of all ages! I have taught music in multiple environments: privately, at summer rock camps, afterschool programs, and the W.O. Smith Music School. Originally from Southern California, I started playing piano and organ when I was six years old. At nine, I studied the flute, and discovered percussion at the age of fourteen. As a teenager, I competed in Winter Guard International (WGI) and Southern California Percussion Alliance (SCPA) indoor drumline circuits, as well as marched in a Drum Corps International (DCI) World Class corps, all under the direction of John Mapes. I further studied commercial percussion with the king of groove, Go-Go Ray. I have recorded for bands such as J. Shields & The Honey Spoons, and currently perform with local Nashville artists.

Heather C.

My son has taken drum lessons from Stephie for the past year and he’s really grown in his skills.

I highly recommend Stephie For music lessons! We was so wonderful with my 8-year-old and not only taught her effectively but also made my daughter excited for lessons and practicing. We used Stephie for both in-home and virtual lessons and found both to be an exceptional way of learning a new instrument. Stephie knows how to adjust to a child’s method of learning and how to give new approaches when necessary. You won’t be disappointed!!

Stephie was great teaching ukulele lessons to our 6 year old. She kept him engaged throughout each lesson and encouraged him to keep practicing to advance his skills. He always looked forward to his lessons each week.

I am 22 and have never touched an instrument in my life. Stephanie is very patient with me and is very knowledgeable. Couldn’t ask for a better teacher.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I currently teach for 30-minute, 45-minute, and 60-minute intervals, at $30, $45, and $60 respectively. (COVID specials) Lessons are billed monthly, at the start of each month. I am flexible and understanding when you have to miss a lesson here or there, as I sometimes have to miss as well, especially when I have a show or play out of town. Ideally, I see students weekly, but things certainly come up. If that happens, we can either schedule a make-up lesson for another time, or just not bill for that lesson. This is determined at the start of each month. You will never be charged for lessons your student does not plan for EXCEPT for when a cancellation is made less than 24 hours in advance of the lesson. Only one lesson canceled within the 24-hour window may be made up each term. Beyond that, you will be charged for any last-minute cancellations that were not pre-arranged. This policy allows for us to be respectful of each other’s time. If your student gets sick last minute, I totally understand. It happens! We will need to schedule a make-up lesson for a later date in that case, and there won't be an option to be refunded. If any part of this cancellation policy is unclear, please feel free to reach out, or ask about it at our first lesson. With many students and my own busy music schedule, it is getting harder and harder to reschedule students. Therefore, I am hoping this policy will assist in resolving that situation.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I love learning about my student's goals, figuring out what they like about music, as well as what artists and genres they enjoy. This way, I can help incorporate all of these factors into our lessons.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have taught music in multiple environments: privately, at summer rock camps, afterschool programs, the W.O. Smith Music School, and other studios around Nashville. Originally from Southern California, I started playing piano and modern organ when I was six years old. At nine, I studied the flute, and discovered percussion at the age of fourteen. As a teenager, I competed in Winter Guard International (WGI) and Southern California Percussion Alliance (SCPA) indoor drumline circuits, as well as marched in a Drum Corps International (DCI) World Class corps, all under the direction of John Mapes. I further studied commercial percussion with the king of groove, Go-Go Ray.
