“Steve is the kind of teacher that shares with you the infectious joy of music. I truly appreciated how much delight he found with each detail about music and always felt inspired to go discover more. He is patient and willing to take the time to help you learn something. His knowledge of not only jazz but other styles of music is something I aspire to!”
