Hello from SAM Violin Teacher, Stephen Poirier


StephenAre you a beginning violin, viola or cello student who can read music?  If so, the Beginning String Ensemble is the perfect new fun musical group for you!  This group, which meets bi-weekly is geared to help beginning string students feel more comfortable playing in an ensemble setting with other string players.  In this comfortable atmosphere students will enjoy this new experience.

At age 14, Stephen started his musical career as a minstrel at various Italian restaurants.  During his years in high school he played at many weddings, events, functions and special occasions around New England.  In 2003, Stephen was accepted into the Hartt School where he studied under Anthea Kreston and received a Bachelor of Music Education degree.  After completing his studies at Hartt, he began his teaching career as an orchestra director in the Manchester School District in New Hampshire.  Now he’s a member of our SAM team helping to spread the joy of springs music on the New Hampshire seacoast.
