For intermediate students who have been playing for a while: perhaps its time to double down on scales, chord inversion and technique. We will lay out a lesson plan to help you along.
While we take you to the next level we will learn songs to help you develop and show off your skills.

Advanced players need specific guidance. Sometimes small changes in practice and technique can make really big changes in your performance. The goal is to play fluidly and get your technique ...

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 5 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 80

Steve is a great instructor. He's knowledgeable and patient. I'm a beginner mandolin player but more experienced at guitar. Steve knows the right approach and progression to my lessons, incorporating the experience I already have. Highly recommend!
Daniel K.
Steve actually researched a style of play that he was unfamiliar with to teach me. Obviously a master musician, he analyzed the basics of the style and started from my baseline, teaching me the technique from the ground up. A dedicated and friendly teacher, I'd recommend him to anyone.

Whether you just want to sing a song at the campfire, or stand on stage in platform heels blowing fireballs, learning to understand the theory behind the music, will enable you to fulfill that dream. The guitar fingerboard is full of shapes, and there are a lot of complicated ways to learn them. Let's learn some easy ones that do the same job, and allow your creativity to shine.

overall good teacher

I've been taking lessons from Scotty for over a year and have learned a lot about theory, form, and style. Had taken lessons from other instructors and felt that I should had been further along after 1 year. One hour lesson time is perfect for me and I always leave wishing I had more time.

Great Teacher

Great teacher takes time to cover theory of music, and does hour lessons unlike most teachers in town who do 30min lessons. Have taken lessons from other teachers in the past, and all they do is teach you songs without explaining the reasoning behind it. Have learned more in the last few months then I’ve learn in years with other teachers.

Lessons are simple & easy for all ages of begginner guitarists!

Learn your favorite songs right away!

Each lesson will consist of a unique and personalized curriculum to fit your needs!

This will be done at a pace that allows for confidence to be built and a complete understanding of the material to become a pro guitar player!

Along with your favorite songs, each student is taught what I call 'beginning fundimentals'. These are a basic set of skills that can help any guitarist become an independent and self-sufficient musician with a strong fundamental foundation. Crucial skills such as:

reading music
TAB
scales
various chords
playing your favorite songs
and more...
will be taught in each lesson. Each lesson will be just as enjoyable as it is informative.

*Note for in-person lessons at teacher's location*

Due to current circumstances mask and temp check are required for in person lessons at teacher's locations.
Thank you for helping keep everyone safe!

"Hands down the best guitar instructor in St Louis.

Since retiring in 2006 I tried a few others but David brings expertise in not only guitar mechanics and virtuosity but an understanding of deeper musical principles and its application to the guitar student.

Dave is a true genius in the art of Guitar, no matter the musical genre - or -whether its Led Zepplin or Brouwer classical guitar method.he can't be beat.

"Prior to meeting William, I took guitar lessons from another guitar teacher and my parents were noticing that after a few months of lessons, I was not improving from when I started. This is when I met William. From the get go, William requested that I bring a notebook, folders and my own pick which was vastly different from my last teacher who did not go by the book and never asked me to bring my own equipment.
Every lesson I had with William was structured, planned and never did I have a lesson where William was not prepared. In fact, the lessons in which we could not do much were my fault, not Williams due to me not practicing enough or forgetting my equipment. The lessons William teach are incredibly engaging as he does not go strictly by the book and is willing to cater the curriculum towards what a student is interested in. Although I am no longer taking classes with William due to schooling, it is because of Williams great teaching and remarkable persona that to this day I can still recall the lessons I learned.
Curriculum aside, William is a fantastic person who not only is funny and engaging, but has both the skill and love for teaching music. On a final note, one of the best aspects of taking lessons with Williams is that he genuinely cares about his students. There were many times were we reserved some time at the end of a lesson to talk about life or struggles that were hindering me in both music and in life. As a former student and friend of William, I cannot recommend a better music teacher than him, although I will say that if you like to slack and are not truly invested in music, than Williams might not be for you."
