"Without music life would be a mistake".....
Friedrich Nietzsche




My name is Zane Hrynewich and I'm the owner/teacher at S.T.E. (Saskatoon Talent Education). I have worked with thousands of students in Saskatoon, since I began teaching piano in 1973. Read more about me here.....

I am a musician, a teacher, and a graphics and Internet designer with a passion for photography. I wanted this site to not only feature my company, Saskatoon Talent Education, but also to present me on a personal level.

My goal as a teacher is to produce well-rounded, well-versed musicians with practical musical skills. This includes technique, tone, development of the ear, expanding the mind, knowledge of various genres, the ability to improvise, and a deep knowledge of the elements of music. I also offer instruction in digital recording.
If you are looking for a piano teacher for yourself or your child, I would be pleased to discuss your options with you. Please contact me for more information.
