Do what you love. Love what you do.
Are you looking for a teacher who is a good listener? Friendly? Open to what YOUR child or you want to learn?
Would you appreciate a lesson in your own home where you can be a part of the lesson and/or still make dinner and relax in your own home at the end of the day?
What if you could find a teacher who was organized and makes payments easy, online?
How cool would it be to have your lesson notes online?
I chose lessons with Stephanie because it was apparent to me from the first time I met her that her love for music was unwavering. Her enthusiasm and professionalism are great qualities to have in a music teacher.I stayed with Stephanie for piano lessons because she truly fostered my child's unique way of learning music. Her encouragement is challenging yet keeps her motivated in her classes.
Working with Stephanie has been a great experience. She has been very accessible to any questions or concerns I may have and she is very professional.

“I have known Stephanie for the past 2 1/2 years and have worked along side her for numerous musical events. Being a music teacher myself, I know that there are attributes more important than just knowledge of music: Patience, Connecting with students, and Passion for music. Stephanie not only exemplifies all of these qualities, but also creates a positive and engaging learning atmosphere for her students. She has an outstanding ability to adapt to her students’ interests and keep them motivated towards playing. She truly makes learning fun. Stephanie is both a talented pianist and an exceptional teacher.”

I have always loved the sound of music. In fact, as a child I tried to teach myself to play the guitar. However, without lesson, and no musical background, I failed to learn. When I had kids and they started piano and guitar lessons, all it did was once again surface my love of playing an instrument. They took lessons for a few years, but then stopped. Finally, after my children reached high school, I decided to scratch my itch that had been lingering for many, many years. I started attending lessons with Stephanie. How wonderful is she, so patient, kind, and amazingly motivating!! With as much talent as she has, to be so unbelievably positive, always seeing the good in what you have done, is a gift all in itself which calls me to continue to strive to do better. With me taking lesson, I evidently aroused an unfinished music curiosity in my daughter, which had been started when she were in first grade, because she is now also taking piano lessons with Stephanie.
When we first started taking, we had a 44 key keyboard, now we have finally upgrade to a digital piano. It is now so much more fun to practice, with all the bells and whistles that technology offers.
Being an athlete all my life, even into adulthood, and now actually finding something of my inner self that is calming and relaxing, but at the same time using some of the same thinking and competiveness that athletes have, truly balances the hard and the soft of a person. I am so driven to learn how to play fluently. The sound of the keys truly is music to my soul!!!!
Stephanie's Resume &
I have the opportunity to sing with Stephanie playing the grand piano in our church. Its incredible the way she seems to be able to play anything. During lessons she makes it all look so easy. I take weekly lessons now. I look forward to our time together. When I am feeling stressed from a hectic day at work or home (pick one with a home as full as mine sometimes work in an ICU is less stressful) I practice the piano & the stress seems to melt away. This is something I am doing for myself! A rare thing indeed. However, someday I hope to be good enough to do it for the Lord!!! Serving Him,

“I met Stephanie James about nine years ago when I joined the Lafayette music Teachers Association. Instantly, I was impressed with Stephanie’s enthusiasm and joy for teaching. Her positive energy was contagious whenever she entered a room and began talking about teaching. The teachers and I were immediately drawn to her. Throughout the years, Stephanie has shared her methods and techniques with me and the other teachers which has brought depth to my studio. Stephanie is always eager to help others including myself succeed in teaching. In addition, Stephanie’s sensitivity to the personality and individuality of a student as well as her broad knowledge of pedagogy makes her a superior piano teacher. I highly recommend Stephanie to anyone looking for an encouraging and professional piano and vocal teacher. “
