Stevens School of Music has been a real source of joy for my son who is in his 5th year of piano lessons. He looks forward to every lesson because Ms. Cindy incorporates fun and laughter into everything they do. We love the music recitals where students showcase their talent. What a blessing to have such a wonderful school in our area that is staffed with talented, caring, dedicated teachers. - Natalie G.
My daughter has truly become passionate about music after working with Steven's Music. She is now writing songs and performing. She's found a new creative outlet. Her new found confidence is a direct result of working at Stevens School of Music! - Rebecca K.
Our son received a set of drums for Christmas, and we signed him up for classes at Stevens School of Music soon after. I've been so pleased with the drum lessons my son has received over the last 7 months! I love that he works one-on-one with Curtis -- it's that one-on-one relationship that has built my son's skills and confidence. - Jennifer H.
My daughter Madison started taking Guitar lessons at Stevens School of Music & the Arts this past January. It is amazing how fast she has picked it up. Keith is extremely patient in his teaching. Madison’s exact words when I asked her what she liked most about taking guitar lessons with Keith were “Mr. Keith is very nice and it is fun.” She never wants to miss a lesson. I would highly recommend Stevens School of Music & the Arts to anyone looking to take lessons! - Jessica T.
My son has been taking guitar lessons for the past several years at Steven’s School of Music and we couldn’t be happier. His looks forward to his lesson each week, which I credit to his teacher who makes each lesson fun. He truly enjoys each lesson and he has grown as a musician. His teacher has exposed him to many genres of music and he now plays both the acoustic and electric guitar. He was encouraged to write his own song which he proudly performed at his recital. I highly recommend the school as a place where children learn to love music. - Lorrie B.
Over the years, all three of my children have taken lessons at the Stevens School of Music and The Arts. Each has had a positive experience and the lessons (whether they were piano, drums, or trumpet) were taught by professional, kind, and extremely knowledgeable instructors. The music instruction at the Stevens School of Music and The Arts helped each of my children develop a deep appreciation for music, as well as, positively influenced their self-confidence and ability to focus. I have also observed that learning an instrument gave them another positive outlet for their emotions. Most recently, my seven-year-old daughter has been taking piano with Cindy Stevens. Cindy is a wonderful piano teacher! Not only is she an outstanding pianist herself, but she is extremely patient, kind, and makes the lessons fun! My daughter has blossomed under Cindy's instruction! She has learned so much musically and also gained poise and confidence. I am amazed at the progress that she has made and how much she looks forward to her lessons. Our experience with The Stevens School of Music and The Arts has consistently been nothing short of exemplary. - Laura E.
Stevens School of Music has provided a great learning environment for both of my children to learn to play the guitar. The staff is professional, and gifted at motivating young people to play and love music! - Claire P.
"Music has always been an important part of our lives so when our three kids came along we wanted to encourage that love of music in them also. We were so happy, then, to hear about Stevens School of Music and Arts. Our oldest two kids each started taking piano lessons when they were seven and we've been very pleased with the musical education provided at the school. The instructors are qualified, top-notch professionals who consistently provide friendly and individualized instruction in a safe and accommodating environment. Most of all, the school has nurtured that love of music we set out to find. Both of our now teenagers continue to enjoy music and to use and expand the musical education they've received at the school in many areas of their lives including home, church, and school. When the third one came along we naturally enrolled him in private lessons also and whenever we're asked where our kids got their musical start we always recommend the Stevens School of Music and Arts!" - Charlotte A.
Just a quick note of appreciation to you for all you have done for our family. When my daughter and son were just preschoolers, we started them in Kindermusik through Stevens and we were off and running! By the time they had finished Kindermusik, they were reading the treble staff and were able to play three instruments. Since then my daughter has played the recorder, the guitar and the piano, and my son has played the piano and is now on to electric guitar.
Allow me to thank you for making music so fun for them. Stevens has given them an understanding of music that will carry them in to young adulthood and open doors for them for the rest of their lives.
But of course, their love of music is not the only enrichment they have enjoyed at Stevens. The Theater Camps have been one of my kids most loved summer experiences. They always look forward to Theater Camp and even caution my husband and I against making any family vacation plans during the time they know Theater Camp will be offered at Stevens.
Lastly, for myself, it’s so refreshing as an adult to broaden my understanding of music through Stevens. I have taken piano and guitar and though I’ll never be as good as my kids, it gives me such joy to play an instrument!
As a parent, you often wonder whether the activities you devote time and resources to will actually pay off for your kids. I have never second guessed our involvement at Stevens Music and the Arts Studio. This music and arts mecca in Troy has been a huge blessing for our whole family and a habit we never intend to quit! Thanks again, - Jenny K.
