Stephanie Stapleton, daughter of a professional musician and native to South Tampa, is deeply passionate about music and the fine arts. Classically trained in voice and piano, she provides learning in a way that promotes positive self-awareness, empowerment, and creative expression of music. You’ll often hear her telling students, “It’s more than just notes on the page, it’s the impression you leave on others”. Her teaching philosophy is to release the native genius within each of her students without limitations and conventional restrictions. Her students are exposed to music theory, lesson books, and lots of supplemental music. She works locally with The Florida Orchestra to reinforce classroom learning and create lasting impressions for her students. With over 30 years of experience teaching music, her proudest moments come from watching her students develop into amazing musicians and confident leaders within their schools, churches and community.
