"Steph is an awesome teacher! She is really passionate about guitar and teaching which makes it easy and fun to learn with her. She is also really open to any style of music and is flexible with teaching to all learning styles. I have developed guitar skills and knowledge from taking lessons with her that not only make me a better guitarist, but a better musician in general. There’s no way I would be the musician that I am today without her!" -Julia age 16
"Steph is amazing, she has taught our sons in person and over Skype. The quality of the lesson does not change! Steph is very patient with the younger kids. Challenges the older ones and keep pushing them all to their best. She picks songs they like to listen to,so it is easy to get them to practice when not with her. I would recommend her to anyone of any age."-Cathy H
"I am the co-founder and director of the Plugged In Band Program in Needham, MA, a nonprofit youth rock band program teaching kids about using music to create positive change in the world. Steph was an ensemble band teacher and private lesson instructor at Plugged In for over 8 years. Steph is not only an amazing musician, she is also an exceptional and natural teacher. She is able to connect with her students through her kindness, sense of humor, positive outlook and love of music. She also inspires them with her passion, work ethic, self-discipline and respect for the study and performance of music. She has been a role model for all of her students. I have seen her students of all levels gain confidence in themselves, self-respect and greatly increase their music skills. I think Steph’s students enjoy studying with her so much, because she also knows how to laugh and have fun." -Sandra R.
Steph taught guitar to my daughter for over six years. Besides being a truly exceptional musician and and excellent teacher, Steph is one of the warmest and kindest people we've ever met. Having Steph in the house for lessons was a highlight of our week. Steph's teaching advanced as my daughter grew and so I can honestly recommend Steph for anyone from age 10 to 17! -Susan A.
