Teaching Philosophy: Building a solid relationship with the student and parents is the first step to having amazing lessons. I start by approaching every lesson with building the student’s core fundamentals on the instrument, so they can excel as they improve to new levels in their playing. I believe everyone who has the right mindset and drive to reach their goals can make them become reality. I will do my best to keep our lessons in line with what the student may be learning in their school music program.

Get to know Jason Stephens

Jason Stephens is currently a junior at Sam Houston State University pursuing his degree in music performance with a specialization on the bassoon. My goal is to become a professional performer on bassoon and join a professional ensemble. I am currently taking lessons with Amanda Swain, Principal bassoonist of the Houston Grand Opera, and have taken lessons from Nathan Koch, assistant professor of bassoon at the Glenn Korff School of Music, and Gina Stevens, past member of the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra and Phoenix Symphony Orchestra. I have been apart of a few youth orchestras, one of which I performed twice with at a summer camp at the Houston School for Performing and Visual Arts. At this camp, I took short lessons and had chamber music coaching sessions from Elise Wagner, member of the Houston Symphony, and Kara LaMoure, member of the Breaking Winds Bassoon Quintet. When I’m not playing bassoon, I can be found playing video games, building computers, or learning about music theory.
