Mr. Steven Murphy
I’m pleased to be the piano instructor at Shortridge this year! I grew up near Batavia, New York, which is close to Niagara Falls! In this area of New York State I learned to downhill ski and swim.
I got my Bachelors of Music in piano from SUNY Fredonia and my Master of Music in piano at Ithaca College. I spent a lot of my time practicing the piano. After grad school, I worked at Cornell University for seven years as an accompanist and composer.
My favorite types of music to play are rock, classical, ragtime and jazz. Sometimes I play in a dance band in the evenings, or occasionally for a local dance studio. I’ve lived in Indianapolis for 18 years, and I’m the proud owner of a cat named Louis Armstrong.
