Steve believes that lessons should be fun, informative, and challenging in an achievable way. He takes a positive approach to learning; there's always something good to build upon in a student's playing. Musicianship is a complete package that can be broken down into multiple components, including technical skill, intonation, tone quality, phrasing, and poise. These qualities can be developed in every student. Steve is equally at home teaching a beginner or advanced oboist.
