She enjoys introducing her students to improvisational styles and approaches across instruments.
Teaching Philosophy: Every developing musician’s artistic voice is inherently unique and valuable. I seek to foster open, collaborative lessons that help musicians express themselves clearly and authentically. My hope is for my students to leave each lesson feeling confident in their own potential and excited to continue their musical growth! Music is ultimately a form of communication, and I support my students in effectively conveying musical ideas across a variety of genres and musical styles.

Get to know Steph Gemmell

I'm a passionate multi-instrumentalist, producer, and songwriter, and I love to connect with other musicians. I earned my BA from George Washington University in 2021, and I am currently pursuing my MA from Berklee College of Music. My primary instruments are flute and piccolo, and I have experience as a backing instrumentalist, pit musician, orchestral musician, and composer/arranger. I am also a passionate drummer, and I play ukulele, guitar, saxophone, harmonica, and melodica. I enjoy performing a wide range of genres, including post-punk, new wave, and synthwave, and anything with rock organ or jazz flute. I love to introduce people to instruments and techniques that are new to them. I'm excited to help you develop your skills and grow as a musician, no matter where you are on your musical journey!
