Welcome! My name is Stephanie Mercer and I have maintained a private studio and have been teaching piano lessons since 2005. I have a BS in Music Education and MM in Piano Performance and Pedagogy. In addition to teaching, I enjoy being a freelance musician in the Rochester and Finger Lakes regions.
I believe what in what the great piano pedagogue Frances Clark wrote: "There is music in every child. The teacher's job is to find it and nurture it." It is my job to ensure every student is realizing his or her unique talents during piano lessons. Whether you're a just a beginner or an advanced student needing guidance, let's explore music together!
I offer 30 min, 45, min, and 1 hour piano lessons based on your goals and availability. The lessons consist of piano technique, performance, and theory. Due to the Social Distancing Mandate, I now offer online lessons via Zoom, FaceTime, Skype, or FaceBook Messenger.
