I place a heavy emphasis on not only playing music but understanding it. Understanding what you're playing is one of the most important differences between an amateur and a professional musician.

Music is all about relationships and patterns. I teach my students to recognize and identify these relationships and patterns to set them up on the course for musical mastery.

On guitar you can learn to read music and/or play by ear. You can learn various techniques such as fingerstyle, using a pick, or combining the two. You can learn how to utilize the entire guitar neck and play in all keys. You can learn how to play chords and melodies at the same time, and you can learn to improvise in various styles.

Jacob was great! He is prompt, friendly, and does a good job helping my 13-year old daughter on piano. She is consistently improving after only a few lessons.

Ms. Strange was so helpful during my time working with her! She's patient, kind, has a wonderful sense of humor, but above all that: an outstanding cellist.
John
Mrs. Strange is the best teacher I have ever had. She is always well prepared going into every lesson. The lessons are clear, concise, and constructive. She does her best to adjust her teaching style to you for the best progress possible. Mrs. Strange gets to know you and cares for every student equally. She does not view you as another student because every student is important to her. You can go to her for any problems you are having with technique, tone quality, sound projection, or any other problem you may have as a student and she will work through the problems with you until you feel comfortable enough to move on to other troubles you are having. Every lesson with Mrs. Strange has a reason, you will never waste time or money with her as a teacher because she can help you achieve new heights as a musician and then surpass them. She taught me everything I needed to know in order to make it into a university for music performance and she still helps me to this day when I am struggling. I recommend her as a teacher to anyone who wants to become a better musician.

Ms. D was extremely patient and thorough with me. And her warm demeanor helped me calm my nerves and loosen up. I appreciate all the valuable insight and direction she gave me.
Kenjah
I had such an amazing experience training with Detrece! She always has such sweet positive energy. I was so happy that with me being more of an advanced singer she was able to teach me about my voice and tips that I never knew! I only had 5 lessons and still had a vocal breakthrough where she helped me realize my range is wider than I thought. She gave me more confidence and is always seeking to share opportunities with me. I’m so grateful to her!!

All aspects of guitar playing are covered. I will teach you to understand what you are playing so that you can take your playing where you want to go with it. From accompanying yourself singing on acoustic guitar , to complex solo and lead playing, as well as rhythmic and melodic electric playing in the various styles of the guitar heroes of today and yesterday. I'll make it happen for you!

About Steve

Music has been a part of my life for over 4 decades. I stepped onstage when I was 15, and have been active in the music business ever since. I was raised in the New York / New England area, and played in many bands in the 70's and 80's, most notably the band AVALON. I moved to Florida in the late 8

Steve is friendly and passionate. He was very accommodating of and adaptive to my goals, stylistic preferences, and schedule. He is patient but also pushed me to play better during lessons.
Robbie P.
Very good teacher and got me up and running on Pro tools. i have already set up another lesson.
Chris K
I could not have found a better instructor- worth every penny. I was worried about committing to 5 lessons on this site without meeting the teacher, but after meeting Steve I knew I found the right teacher. He takes the time to explain everything in detail and is patient while you learn. Never at any point did I feel like I made a "mistake" or I was doing something wrong- he gently just tells you where you need to get eventually. Will go as far into detail as you want to go. Very talented player- he just gets "it".

Aidan
Very professional during lessons, relaxed energy, specific with explaining concepts. Would recommend for anyone looking to improve musicianship.
James Feldman
Phil is a fantastic instructor. I am a beginner bass player, interested in learning rock and roll style music. Phil has been able to not only teach me all the classic songs that I love, but also improve my understanding of music theory in the process. In addition to this, Phil is very knowledgeable when it comes to recording music and playing in a live band, and he has shared many insights and personal experiences that have helped inspire me to keep pushing even when I am struggling with a simple bass part. I have seen major improvement in my playing ever since I started working with Phil. I would highly recommend Phil to students of all ages and levels: he is the ultimate professional, and on top of that a stand up guy!
