Stefan is a brilliant young pianist with considerable knowledge about both technical and theoretical aspects of piano playing. He is super professional, as lessons are sequenced and tailored perfectly to your current skill level. He takes the lessons very seriously, so expect to practice regularly! Although, he isn't afraid to keep the atmosphere light and supportive. I would strongly recommend if you are serious about making actual progress in your playing. He gives praise when it is deserved, not freely like candy you see from most teachers in Miami! Highly recommend!
Stefan is skilled and knowledgeable. Calm and patient. Our 10 y.o. daughter enjoys her piano lessons.
Stefan has significant patience, is very professional, and is always on time. I have not played the piano since I was a child, and he makes sure I understand every step in the learning process in order to aide in my confidence and excitement to learn how to fulfill my life long dream of playing the piano again. I highly recommend him a teacher.
Stefan is a great knowledgeable tutor, very patient and willing to explain as many times as need it. I highly recommend! Radmila
The first lesson starts with teacher and student introductions - discovering everyone's musical journey. Detailed guidelines are then clarified to avoid any confusion later on down the line (i.e. rewards, practice expectations, required materials). Then, basic "keyboard geography" is covered before teaching a simple piece he or she can continue working on at home with a few simple practice tips. Lessons are concluded with a few minutes answering any remaining music related questions.
