Steven is an extremely well versed and educated guitar teacher. Both in person and online, Steven managed to meet the interests and push the knowledge of music notation no matter what style. My son became a confident player in a short amount of time due to Steven’s vast knowledge and experience. As a 20+ year schoolteacher myself, I really appreciate his student connection and teaching style. An all over excellent experience.

I teach what I call "practical theory" rather than the typical "theoretical theory." This is theory that you can put into practice immediately.

I'm a very flexible teacher. Whatever you feel that you need to work on, we will work on. I've been blessed to beginning my musical journey in my hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana. From there, I've attended The Juilliard School and earned 3 GRAMMY nominations from my work with various artists. If you're interested, I wouldn't mind teaching you some of the things I've learned at Juilliard and as a professional musician.

(Travelling will incur an extra fee.)

We'll take a journey through musical history to learn the basics of what makes music sound good. We'll start in the Baroque period and move forward all the way into the 20th century, breaking down the masterpieces of composers such as J.S. Bach, G.F. Handel, W.A. Mozart, Ludwig von Beethoven, Franz Schubert, Johannes Brahms, Igor Stravinsky, George Gershwin, and many, many more, to see what made them tick. We will even take a look at popular music of today to see how it lines up with what the masters did. Along the way we will composing our own short pieces in order to get a firmer grasp on what we learn from them.

About J.J.

My name is JJ and I love music! Music is not only what got me through the tough Jr High and High School years, it also got me through college and paved the way for all of my career moves ever since.

"I have been taking lessons with Jimmy for 3 years and could not ask for a better teacher. He makes my interest grow and has a wealth of knowledge and the patience to share it. He challenges me regularly. I only wish I had found him sooner as previous instructors never had the flexibility or patience that Jimmy has.
Learning in such a relaxed environment has worked very well for me. My son has since started lessons with Jimmy as well and it has become a great experience for both of us."

"Billy is the absolute best! Transcribing rhythms and ear training analysis have always been my weaknesses when it comes to music theory knowledge and finding the right exercises and techniques to improve has always been quite a difficult process to achieve. However, within just a few tutoring lessons from Billy, I started to build a better understanding of music theory as a whole. In every tutoring lesson, Billy was patient, knowledgeable and friendly which quickly benefited my musicality and strengthened my overall friendship and love with music. Thank you Billy!"

"The lessons (piano & music theory) I learned from Buzz Amato was the sole reason I got signed to a label & was able to produce 2 Billboard charted singles (which he co-produced with me). I now tour the world djing and produce with talented artists that come to me based off my musical knowledge, that I received from Buzz. I can honestly say NONE of this would happen without the musical instruction of Buzz. Thank you Buzz!"

How to Change the Key of a Song With and Without a Computer

What Does it Mean to Change a Key? To change a song’s “key” means to shift the whole musical system to a higher or lower position. This process is called “transposition.” Performers often need transpose a song to better fit their voices. That way, a performer with a naturally lower singing voice (like myself) will be able to more comfortably sing a song that was originally written for someone with a naturally higher voice. Or vice versa.  For singers, transposition feels fairly …
