"I’m an adult student who was nervous about taking piano again after decades away from it. Steven is the perfect teacher for me — incredibly patient, supportive, and low-key — and I can tell that he’s great with the young students scheduled before and after me. I look forward to my weekly lessons and am even getting a lot of pleasure out of practicing every day. Who knew!?” — Mary M.
