Teacher, composer, and performer

Stephen has been teaching children and adults in the Phoenix Valley since 1972. He is an active member and minister of music for more than 25 years in a local Bible church. Mr. Pearce is unique because he primarily teaches in your home on the student's instrument; however, he has a studio in his home and also teaches at the Arizona Academy of Music in Gilbert. Steve is a published composer and holds a BA from Fordham University in NYC and has credits towards a masters in Theory and Composition. He teaches classical, modern rock, blues, jazz and Christian worship music. He has developed a piano method for improvisation, chords, and playing by ear. which has captured the attention of students. He will also help students to compose their own music and help them notate it on a computer. He holds piano recitals and has prepared students to continue their education at the college level. Excellent professional and personal references provided upon request. Interested students who wish to sign up for a free introductory lesson or learn more about Stephen can contact him at 480 966 8154 or at pearce519@msn.com. My main goal is to impart to each student a love for the piano. My greatest compliment is to receive communication form former students saying that they own a piano and play everyday.
