Introduction: I teach reading, improvisation, and theory on the guitar, fiddle/violin, banjo, mandolin, pedal steel, bass, and Dobro. Musical styles range from classical to bluegrass and jazz. I've been teaching for over 20 years, and I teach from beginner to advanced students. The lessons should be fun, although that is not guaranteed. Above all, you will learn the most efficient ways to practice, so that you get results from your effort. I've had thousands of students whom I draw from to give the best advice to any student.

As an adult student, I have been taking mandolin and guitar lessons from Steve for about two years. I would highly recommend him unquestionably to any prospective student looking to take music lessons. Steve is a down to earth instructor who is not only eager to help his students learn but demonstrabl y excellent at playing and teaching the instrument he teaches. Steve has introduced me to a variety of music from a theory viewpoint, but is eager to help his students define their own path, reflective of their particular musical tastes. I've played an array of bluegrass, jazz, blues, and classical music with Steve. Not only has my playing dramatically improved but my appreciation for the music has improved exponentially. I've learned how to diatonic ally examine songs, understand rhythm signatures, identify different scales, solo, and perhaps most importantly, how to practice properly. Whether you're just looking to play your favorite song, or become a life long student of your instrument, Steve is definitely the guy to help you along.

My first guitar instructor was my dad back when I was about ten years old. Fast forward about thirty years to 2003 when I started talking guitar lessons from Steve. You learn more than playing a guitar with Steve. He teaches you how to read music and about music theory. You will appreciate other genres of music and maybe even a different instrument or two. I now have an mandolin and ukulele (along with a few guitars) that Steve is also teaching me hot to play. I started lessons with Steve on him and am glad that I did. It has been a wonderful experience learning more about music and how to play an instrument. And I owe Steve a great deal of thanks and credits for making this experience fun.

Our son, Joseph, has been studying with Steve Latanision for 6 years (and counting) playing the guitar, mandolin and violin. Steve has an excellent manner with kids and is a master with many genres of music. With Steve, Joseph studies jazz, blue grass irish folk, classical and music theory. Steve is very invested in our son’s musical education and has worked with Joseph on several occasions preparing audition and concert music. Joseph looks forward to many years of studying with Steve!
