My son called me as soon as Steve left to beg for more lessons!! He is really so professional and such a great teacher! I would recommend him for any age group!Sep 22, 2018Verified
Even with my vague knowledge of music Steve is able to utilize that to know where I need to pick up where I left off 12 year ago. His advanced knowledge is very apparent and he is able to respond quickly to questions with great examples.May 31, 2018Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I usually speak with my new clients over the phone first to discuss where they are at with the guitar and where they want to go. Based on that conversation, I bring a variety of guitar method books and manuscript paper to the lesson and see what the student can and cannot do and we begin the learning process at a point that is mutual. I also spend a bit of the first lesson talking about Music with my student to know what they enjoy and to simply get to know them better.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have my Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Performance and have been playing the guitar for over 15 years. I've also taught guitar lessons for over 5 years and currently work part-time at two music schools. I also play bass in a band and am composing original music for my own group. I can bring my knowledge and experience from years of performing, teaching, rehearsing, composing, and improvising to the lesson space.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was hired as a substitute guitar teacher at a music school and realized how rewarding giving a lesson felt.
