Stephan offers online lessons to students all over the world. Stephan teaches in a systematic manner, starting from my level of competence. He has been quick to identify and correct problem areas with my playing. During this short time, I have improved in my playing as well as developed a better understanding and knowledge in the many aspects of jazz. The lessons through which he imparts his knowledge and methods are conducted through Skype. Materials relating to the lessons are also delivered through the internet during lessons. In my mind, we have been able to overcome the physical constraints of distance using this manner of communication and it is as good as face to face lessons. Certainly saves me the huge expense of traveling to New York city for lessons. Paul Foo, Singapore
