Reviews
Voice
Steven has incredible talent in all areas of music but the thing I enjoy most is that he is able to inspire as he teaches. My 14 year old son has been taking some piano, mostly guitar and now voice with him for about 2 years. The growth we have witnessed is outstanding. Steven is bringing out the very best in our son - helping him grow in both musical knowledge and self -confidence. Thank you! - The Evans Family, 5 Stars!

Piano & Voice
“I took voice and piano lessons in Mr. Bruce’s studio and also online via Skype. Both experiences were great, and it was really convenient to do the lessons on Skype. Mr. Bruce is an excellent teacher, and he is very patient. I recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to play an instrument or sing!” - Kat, 5 Stars!

Guitar & Voice
“Mr. Bruce is a wonderful teacher! He is talented, always enthusiastic, and extremely motivational! Each lesson is designed specifically for our daughter Kelsey's ability and desired genre of music! Kelsey began guitar and vocal lessons in the Coronado studio and is now taking lessons via Skype since our move to Virginia. The lessons are convenient, affordable, and productive. We are excited to be able to still have Mr. Bruce as her guitar and vocal teacher!” - Amy, 5 Stars!

Singing
“Mr. Bruce does a fantastic job! He goes out of his way when needed to ensure a quality lesson. He gives the option to have lessons at his in-home studio or receive them online. That has made it very convenient to keep up the lessons as my daughter's school schedule changes. He is always gracious if we have computer trouble during the Skype lessons. He has even given a lesson over the phone when we couldn't get the computer to work! His prices and policies are reasonable too. I've recommended him to several friends already.” - Mylora, 5 Stars!

Piano
“Mr. Steve Bruce is a dedicated and professional instructor. He not only appreciates his students, but is committed to see them progress as musicians. He let's them know that they can go as far as they want with their music; they just need to do this one thing: do your homework-->practice, practice, practice, he will work on the rest. Both my daughters have been taking lessons with Steve for over 4 yrs and have the confidence to play in front of a group, they are only 8 & 9 yrs old. If you are looking to find a teacher who is committed to you, then Steve is the right instructor.” - Lucy, 5 Stars!

“I take Piano and Vocal lessons from Steven for almost two years now, and have no complaints about him. He pushes me to do better with my work and helps me understand things that I couldn't with past teachers. On piano, he helps with my learning by ear, as well as reading music. On my vocals, he helps me perfect my singing with exercises and keeping an inner glow to my face that most successful singers have.
I extremely recommend trying him out!” - Briley, 5 Stars!

Piano (Keyboard)
“I came to Mr. Bruce as a beginner in piano and I took the piano lessons on my Casio keyboard. I just wanted to learn my favorite songs. Mr. Bruce got me into music I really enjoy! In only three months, I was able to play and sing a song I truly love titled “Angel” from Sarah McLachian. My teacher said I performed it as well as the artist. My friends loved my performance of the song!” - Katrina, 5 Stars!

“Steven Bruce’s fun and patient teaching style rocks. I see how his bright, fun-loving personality, and knowledge of music for piano makes him top choice as my daughter’s music instructor.” - Anthony, 5 Stars!

Piano
”I have known Steven Bruce for many years. When my girlfriend Gloria said to me "I'd like to take piano lessons," our choice for teacher was easy. From the very start, Steve showed patience, skill, understanding, knowledge and a warm sense of humor. To feel confident in his guidance, consistency and care is very comforting. His empathy in moving Gloria along the early stages was truly appreciated. I knew this would be the case, because our teacher is passionate, creative, unique and also happens to be one of the kindest individuals I've ever known. Please consider Steven, if you happen to be looking for an incredibly complete music teacher.” - Robert, 5 Stars!

Piano
“My time in being instructed by Mr. Bruce on piano was a great, informative experience. Ever since the first lesson, he is a very good teacher that clearly knows what he is doing. Mr. Bruce taught me at my own pace, taking time to help me work on skills, especially small details that help me perform much better. He is a very skilled instructor, teaching me pieces from not only music books that he provides, but also the valuable skill of learning by ear, a skill few other teachers bother to touch on. Mr. Bruce has helped on a number of occasions with songs that I am learning on my own and fit time into our lessons to work on them. He is always willing to let the student work on what they like as well as what he gives out. When I once mentioned my liking for jazz, we soon started an in-depth series of lessons into the genre, teaching me much more than I ever knew prior to it. I’ve never felt pressured by my assignments and pieces to bring home, as Mr. Bruce knows everyone goes at their own pace and can take anytime from a few days to a few weeks to learn a song. My time with him was a very fun and informative time that I thoroughly enjoyed.” - Michael, 5 Stars!
