Had a great lesson with Rob a few months ago, he made sure we didn't stray too far off our goal and made sure I went home with material to practice. Very easy going, informative, fun to talk and practice with.

Nate was absolutely perfect for our small, intimate wedding. Not only does he have amazing talent but he was very accommodating to what we needed. It even rained at our covered outdoor ceremony and he pulled through and offered a flawless performance. So thankful for Nate and his part at our wedding. He made it very special and filled the chapel with heartwarming music and a beautiful ambiance. Thanks Nate!

About

Guitar or bass lessons are offered by a versatile, experienced, and fun teacher! "I came to Steve because after reading his ad, it sounded like he knew exactly what he was talking about. He did. We're talking life-changing stuff here." - Dalton H. "Steve has the three most important qualities you could want in a music teacher: the theoretical knowledge of the student of music, the practical experience of the professional working musician and, perhaps most importantly, the understanding and ability of a natural educator. He's not just a great music teacher but a great teacher." - Dan C. Hi, folks! If you are serious about learning to play guitar or bass, why don't you take lessons with one of the most experienced, dedicated, and fun guitar teachers in Austin? "Steven is an excellent guitar teacher; he truly rocks. He has a very strong understanding of the instrument as well as a very strong ability to adapt to your style in order to help you achieve your guitar goals. I've taken lessons from a few different teachers, and by far, Steven has helped me to increase the breadth of my playing quickly and more precisely than anyone else I've ever worked with." - Amos S. I am a guitar and bass instructor who has been teaching for over 15 years. I have taught hundreds of students and have gotten great results on a consistent basis. I have two music degrees and one education degree and have a developed teaching philosophy as well as a commitment to being the best teacher I can be. Check out my website. "I've found my passion for guitar again after being stuck for years, unable to figure out how to keep improving. I'm enjoying guitar like when I first started." - Chris B. In addition to being a guitar and bass teacher, I am a performer in Austin based blues and jazz bands. I am also a singer and songwriter and enjoy teaching songwriting and composition to students (if desired). "Steve is an extremely knowledgeable and friendly teacher. He helped me learn a variety of songs: everything from children's songs to country ballads and Mexican folk music. He also taught me the basics and gave me exercises and strategies to increase my flexibility and range. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in learning to play the guitar." - Janna J. Unfortunately, many guitar teachers, while often good musicians, have little idea of how to teach subjects such technique, theory, or rhythm. Others attempt to foist their musical tastes upon their students, forgetting that their job is to be an enabler, not a pundit for their favorite artists or styles. "Steve Baranowski is a great guitar teacher because he helps his students develop their own distinct abilities and not those of his own." - Adam S. I believe that being a great teacher is a rare chemistry of ability, education, insight, patience, experience, honesty, real-world knowledge, good humor, and love of teaching. I can bring these things to you. "Steve makes learning the guitar fun. You're guaranteed to laugh or at least smile a few times every lesson while you improve your knowledge of the guitar." - Ben H. I also believe that the job of a teacher is to create freedom for a student (freedom that is earned through practice), to take the music he or she plays in any direction desired, and to become a self-sufficient artist with a real identity. In other words, it is to help you be the musician you really want to be. "Steve blends expert musicianship and an eclectic sense of humor to create a teaching style all his own. Backed by an immense knowledge of all things music, he caters to both the beginners and experts, whether they wish to play blues or punk, jazz or straight up rock and roll." - Chris H. All levels are welcome! My students are from ages 9 to 90! "I went to several guitar teachers before finding Steve who was way better than the others; he is a great teacher who is proficient in anything I ask him about." - Chris B. I teach rock, pop, blues, jazz, folk, liturgical, theory, songwriting and even metal! "You taught me more about guitar in 3 short months than I learned by looking through countless guitar books. You have a gift for quantifying a consistent methodology without approaching it arrogantly or as if it's the only way. It's a joy to learn from you." - Larry G. From jazz soloing to fingerpicking, learning the fret board to learning to shred, or simply getting started on the right foot (a specialty of mine), I can give you the tools you need to take guitar as far as you want to go and make sure you are going in the direction you want to go in. "One thing I like about Steve is that he rolls with you whichever musical direction interests you." - R.W. If this sounds like what you might be looking for, respond to this ad, or call me. "He's got tons of experience; the lessons are fun, and it's a bargain. What more do you want?" - Chris B. Lessons are $20 for half an hour and $30 for an hour. I am located in South Austin, just west of I35 and 10 minutes south of downtown. I'd love to hear from you! "The best money I ever spent!" - A. Jones

The major topics that I cover in my curriculum include: * technique * rhythm * harmony * sight reading of notation and chord symbols * theory * ear training * improvisation * composition/chart writing * music history Various teaching aides are used including method books, recordings, and repertoire from a multitude of styles.
