Bachelor of Music Education degree
Steve attended Northern Michigan University (music major), Berklee College of Music (performance), and graduated with honors from Elmhurst University with a Bachelor of Music Education degree. Steve also attended DeVry University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Technology.
Klenke's style of teaching is warm and friendly but practical, teaching proper fundamentals both of playing and music reading (and theory, if interested). There is no complicated signup or monthly commitment. Take a lesson, pay for a lesson. Students can request a regular weekly timeslot for lessons, or every other week, or monthly timeslot, or take it week by week. Scheduling is flexible.
Music Lessons are held online and payment methods are flexible. An online store will be added soon. In the future, a physical location for lessons may be set up in Leander or Cedar Park, Texas. Steve does not travel to student's homes.
Cost of music lessons is $25 per half hour.
