About this pro
How does your service stand out?
My students love their lessons! I am a piano teacher with 20+ experience teaching and performing, teaching students of all ages and levels. My youngest student is 5, my oldest is 87! I'm an active member of the Music Teacher's National Association and I hold a BA Music from Western Washington University, where I double-majored in music education and piano performance. I offer very competitive pricing, flexible scheduling, and lessons via skype and facetime if the student can't make it to my studio.
As a professional musician and multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, my background is in both classical and pop/rock. This diverse background gives me the flexibility to teach many styles of music. I love classical piano very much, but it's not all I teach; I also teach songwriting and arranging, singing, beginning guitar, and beginning audio production with Logic Pro X.
What do you enjoy about the work you do?
I truly enjoy teaching music. Getting to spend time with other musical people, watching children grow and learn to love piano, assisting others with their musical dreams, these are the things that motivate me every day when I am teaching. I couldn't think of a better job to have!
It is hard to know where to start! Stephanie taught my daughter piano for 6 years from age 12 - 18. She is extremely insightful and came to understand my daughter quickly, then skillfully challenged her at exactly the right level through the years. Music came to be a great way of self expression for our daughter and also a way to relieve the kind of stress that sometimes visits during adolescence. Stephanie managed to walk the line of commitment to high standards and understanding that life is busy in the teen years. She has been, without a doubt, an important part of our daughter's development as a musician and as a person. We are forever grateful to have had her in our lives. (I also took lessons from Stephanie - she is also very patient :) . It is bittersweet that I write this in the past tense - our daughter is going off to college halfway across the country! She would definitely be continuing piano lessons with Stephanie if she were to stay in Seattle. We highly recommend her to any other families seeking a piano teacher for their child. We would also happily answer any questions from any families considering Stephanie as a piano teacher.

Stephanie taught weekly piano lessons to my son in our home. Always punctual and on-task, I appreciated her consistency and professionalism. Feeling overwhelmed in other areas of his life, Stephanie was able to gauge just how much encouragement my son needed so that he could successfully reach his musical goals. Her approach was kind, patient and consistent. Her knowledge of music theory was spot-on. We really enjoyed working with her before we moved!

Can't say enough positive things about Stephanie. Our daughter is nine and in her third year of piano instruction with Stephanie, who is always punctional and prepared. She has a kind, patient way of instructing while pushing her students to progress. She is a gifted musician herself and actively records and performs, but her priority is teaching piano and her passion for it shows. Her twice-yearly recitals are fun and festive. Our daughter has confidently grown as a musician under Stephanie and is developing an appreciation for all kinds of music as a result.

Stephanie is very patient with children. She is also very fun and truly teaches them to love piano. Both of my children enjoyed lessons with Stephanie for many years until we moved.
