ALL lessons are currently ONLINE due to Covid-19 for everyone's safety. 


My teaching style is uniquely tailored to each student because everyone has a different way of learning and musical growth. I structure my lessons to match my students’ personality, learning style, as well as emphasizing on solid technical foundation. I believe that a fun and educational environment can foster a special relationship between the student and their instrument, thus allowing students to find joy in learning! The most important aspect of a one-on-one lesson is the teacher and student relationship and I believe in encouragement and positivity in my teaching studio. My students have gained great success in Junior & Senior Districts, school orchestra evaluations, New England Conservatory's Preparatory School, Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra, among others. 

Private lessons in Boston, Newton, or Online. Boston Latin School students-lessons Thursday after school. For all inquires, please fill out the contact form.

"Stephanie is a fantastic teacher and has already helped me so much with the cello. She uses every minute of our lesson time well. She is very patient, kind and understanding. She was also very aware of an arm injury, and gave me a lot of feedback on how to fix it, and how to adjust my playing so that my progress wasn't slowed. I love how many different approaches she has to all aspects of the cello. She's fantastic, highly recommend!"
