About Steven

My inspiration of teaching comes from watching the younger generation grow and succeed. As a Jacobs School of Music graduate, dedication and learning to love what you learn pays off. I have had the pleasure of teaching 50+ students and helping them grasp their potential and seeing them evolve musically.

My hours are flexible. Makeup classes are offered if requested. I don't have a cancellation policy, but notifying me about 6 hours in advanced would be appreciated.

I have a tutoring or teaching space at my current home with 2 pianos. Music Theory tutoring can be done online if requested (Skype, Google Hangout, etc.).

I specialize in teaching piano in various styles (classical, jazz, chord harmony) along with music theory. Each session will have the student challenged with homework that includes memorization and worksheets I provide for them. My goal for each week is to have the student improve their skills or knowledge from the previous week, and not just complete every assignment.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you grow in your studies!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Composition (Music)

I majored in classical piano but am heavily experienced in chord reharmonization aka composition. Styles range from: jazz, neo-soul/R&B, classical, pop. I use to play in church in praise bands as the main keyboardist. My duties ranged from performing solos, hymns, and duets. I am also solely responsible for all digital electronic music, and other software sounds. This includes the genre of Hiphop, R&B, Church Rock n Roll. The sounds may be from all over the world, but the composition is still self-composed to fit the style of the song.

Piano

I have a bachelor of science in music with an outside field degree from Indiana Jacobs School of Music. This will be my 4th year in private teaching piano and music theory. Currently I have 20+ students. My methods include various techniques: exercises, scales, arpeggios, and custom made exercises. I make my own sheet music, and music theory handouts/homework from a program called Logic Pro X(digital computer music software). I also host recitals for my students to play, solo and duets. They also compete in festivals and competitions.
