For the past seven years, my performance career has primarily focused on Cuban Timba. In addition to my real-world experience with the genre, I have held multiple lectures and seminars on the style at universities across New York State as well as online. I feel extremely fortunate to be able to participate in this wonderful genre in such an extensive way, something few outsiders have been able to do. For that reason I am especially passionate about sharing the knowledge I've acquired with others.

I also specialize in jazz improvisation and other styles of "world music" including Afro-Peruvian, Venezuelan and even some styles from southeastern Europe.

As a teacher I emphasize technique, reading, rhythm and creating an organized practice routine. I'm also a strong advocate of transcription, especially of repertoire, which key when studying any style of music.

I also hope to inspire my students to become independent in following there own musical curiosity, regardless of what ...

Ian learned my band's music and hit the stage without rehearsal!

It could have been his deep knowledge of Latin music and musical training, or both. Either way, you are in for a treat of you get to work with Ian. He has the discipline, great sound and a friendly attitude. A very thorough and grounded musician.
Mario
Ian is a kind and patient teacher, a master of his craft and knows how to communicate musical concepts in a clear manner. I studied Cuban/latin music styles with him as well as theory and technique on the bass guitar. In regards to my latin music focus, the information presented is straight from the source, and he has a wealth of material to dig into. He provided the tools and perspective of a real working musician and tailored my lessons to my level of skill.
Nathan
Ian Stewart is rare among artists: in addition to being a master of his craft, he is also a great teacher. While his knowledge of music is vast and deep, he excels at breaking information down for the student and teaching the aspiring musician how to practice effectively and efficiently. He emphasizes the importance of self-assessment so that, ultimately, the students can teach themselves.
I recommend Ian Stewart highly.

Great Groove. So many styles.

I've had the chance to work with Stephen a number of times and I am always impressed with how comfortable he is in such a range of musical settings. This is particularly evident if you get to see him perform with his band Todo Mundo (that every one should check out). I can't list all the styles they borrow from but I can tell you the feel is always spot on - thanks to Stephen.

Lately, we've been focusing more on bass guitar, my first love! Alec is a phenomenal teacher (and musician!!!), and he's helped me so much to get my bass-guitar game back in shape. So glad I found him as a teacher :)))))"

"Excellent Teacher

Along with being incredibly knowledgeable, Alex has the patience and communication skills that really make him excel as a teacher. As a complete beginner to the upright bass (and music in general), I find Alex breaks concepts down in a clear, step-by-step fashion, so that it is not overwhelming. He also gives useful tips on how to be a better learner when tackling challenges, which helps make my personal practice even more effective. Alex is approachable and eager to answer questions even in between classes - I highly recommend him as teacher!"
