Steven James is a co-teacher of the Lassen Piano Studio. He is currently completing his Bachelor of Arts in Music from the University of Oregon, and is preparing an audition for graduate school. As part of his training, he has studied with renowned artists Alexandre Dossin and David Riley. He performs regularly at the University, and is always working on some new recital or composition project.


He is passionate about developing students who learn to love music for itself and integrate it into their lives, regardless of their other pursuits or interests. 

When not teaching, practicing, or performing, he can often be found engaging in bouts of nerdom and uncontrollable adventure, and when duly provoked he will always plunge into any topic at great length (often completely heedless of the time and place).
