About Steven

I love to learn music! So do my students. After childhood lessons, and BA and MA degrees from Minnesota and Iowa, I worked for private conservatories in Los Angeles, while teaching and playing for church events and celebrations. In that real-world school, I learned the music that the world

My 8 year old son had been taking lessons with Steven for 2 years now. I am amazed of how great my son is doing. I now put my twin 6 year old girls in lessons. Steven is a patient teacher and knows his stuff.

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.

Scotty is a excellent teacher.
I've been learning bass from him and he is very knowledgeable in everything from the history of music, theory, techniques and much more.
Corey S.
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.

My music is highly eloquent and lyrical. If you are looking for base level pop music, I will not be much use. But, if you are looking to write songs which paint vivid stories, inspire deep emotions, and musically intrigue, then I promise you I can assist. The genres I teach are Folk, Country, Singer-Songwriter, and Pop.
I've been songwriting for years now. I write daily, and sometimes more than that. I also perform a few exercises to ensure my lyrical skills are at their peak. I've done small songwriting jobs for producers (Writing Lyrics for them and recording a demo) and was also offered a single song publishing (songwriting) contract for Century Music Group.

About Daniel

I have been writing for years now. An arts school, with music classes specializing in songwriting and music theory, has led me to a professional level in the songwriting industry. I have been contracted to write multiple songs for producers, as well as a publishing (songwriting) contract with Centu

"My son has zero background in music with any instrument. He decided he wanted to play guitar after finding one in a yard sale. He gets intimidated very easily, but is loving the lessons. This says a lot about the approach and patience Sergio has had with him."

"My daughters had their first piano lesson today with Terri. I can honestly say that I’ve never met anyone so patient and sweet natured and professional like Terri. The first time I spoke to her on the phone reflected her nature in person. Shes very knowledgeable with the piano music. She knows how to level herself with my 7 year old and specially with my know it all 5 year old. After the lessons she updated me with their progress and commented on my kids strengths and weaknesses. She just didn’t talk to me as her client but she talked to me like a friend. Her smile radiated through the music she teaches. We all loved her."
