About Steven Viola

Hey there!

My name is Steven Viola. I have been playing piano for over twenty years. I'm classically trained, and continue to study to this day! I teach students of all skill levels. In addition I also studied classical voice, and have been teaching all styles of singing to students of all ages. 

My goal is simple: Have a good time. Music is a stress relief, and many of us can have pretty stressful days. Whether it be at work, school, in your car... my duty is to make sure you have an excellent time learning and enjoying music. I may be quite the goof ball while I teach, but I get a lot done, and I pour my heart into each lesson. I will teach you the fundamentals, discipline, and creativity of your instrument.
