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.
