<p>&quot;I am an OA2 Records artist, a national jazz label. For 10 years I have been the leader, composer, and arranger for Amy Stephens Group jazz quartet (<a href="http://www.amystephens.com">www.amystephens.com</a>). ASG has performed live at jazz festivals and concert series throughout the Midwest and Northwest. We've recorded 3 CD's of my original jazz songs, all with national reviews and airplay. </p>
<p>I also have 15 years experience as a music director, pianist and worship leader at churches in the Midwest, Seattle and San Francisco.</p>
<p>I am a member of the Music Teachers Association of California.</p>
<p>All of my students receive instruction in reading music, theory, playing by ear, composing, standard classical repertoire, and contemporary styles like jazz and blues.</p>
<p>Intermediate and advanced students also learn to read from lead-sheets. Jazz students will learn the fundamentals of jazz styles and how to improvise and comp for jazz band, jazz combo and solo/duet situations.</p>
