Learn core music fundamentals and meta-skills that will carry on throughout the rest of your life. Based in Asheville, North Carolina, Stephanie Quinn has decades of experience performing and teaching violin, viola, voice, and piano. Her online students now progress at the same rate as her in-studio students. She will work with you on a variety of musical practices, such as improvisation, theory, ear training, sight-playing, and various other rudimental strategies.

"I have known Stephanie Quinn for over 14 years, during which she has been my piano teacher, mentor, and friend. Her accomplishments as a professional musician--on piano and violin--are numerous and impressive in and of themselves. What distinguishes Stephanie, however, from other performers/teachers is her unique combination of competence, passion, and disciplined approach to teaching. Her studio, which includes students of all ages and levels, is unmistakable proof of that. I am extremely grateful to Stephanie for starting me on a path towards love of music, and for helping me develop the ability to share it with others."

Why Study Music?

Let Her Tell You

Music is a language that cuts through many boundaries of diversity. It is widely known that listening to live music refines the intellect, as well as translates and transforms the emotions. Learning to read and play music notation has proven to raise a person's IQ, help with math and reading, and improve SAT scores in high school. Many older adults study to keep their minds sharp because even amateur chamber musicians live longer.

Success Story

One of Stephanie's very accomplished students was the late Edward Kanan. Even being blinded by diabetes, he won a gold medal skiing at the Special Olympics just before he met with her in 1989. They found a way to work together to pursue his next dream. After about six months of lessons, he performed a Bach Prelude from The Well-Tempered Clavier on piano for his church congregation.

Teaching Videos

"Stephanie is extraordinary! I never gave it any thought that it would be possible to learn such a complex instrument as violin via Skype. To find someone as professionally trained as Ms. Quinn is very challenging in of itself. However to have someone of her caliber teach my daughter from many miles away in the comfort of our home is truly amazing! Stephanie is very patient, observant, extremely knowledgeable and a talented teacher. It is quite a luxury to work with her and I highly recommend her. If you are hesitant to try her online lessons I would suggest you at least give it a chance; you will be pleasantly surprised."
