About Steve K.

Steve K. - Guitarist/Composer/Arranger I compose music for multi-media, TV and Film and run Steve K.Pop Studios based out of Oakland California. Recent projects include composing music for the iOS release “Skurvy Skallywags”, and Cantina music for the Star Wars MMOL game “The Old Republic”. Other projects include music for the Disney game version of "The Princess And The Frog", the FarmVille Theme for Zynga, and the theme for the Zynga game Treasure Island. Before that, I was involved as the composer on a multimedia project requiring that I compose, arrange, prepare scores, individual parts, and finally mix and master over three hours of music for a wonderfully creative game called “Voodoo Vince“(developed by Beep Industries for Microsoft Games on the Xbox platform) within a period of six months. The original soundtrack audio CD, released on the Sumthing Else label, has received rave reviews. I teach guitar and composition privately, and, since 2007, has taught guitar, music theory, composition and band workshops at the Blue Bear School of Music and Community Music Center, both in San Francisco. *** Lesson Details *** Lessons are adaptable to students' needs. Repertoire and stylistic focus is flexible. Instrument technique, theory, composition, working with music on computers (such as ProTools or Garage Band) can all be part of an evolving curriculum, but if you just want to learn some songs on the guitar by your favorite groups, that's great too! Rock, Blues, Pop and Jazz styles from beginning to advanced level. Bluegrass and Country styles from beginning to intermediate level. Classical finger style lessons from beginning to intermediate level. *** Studio Equipment *** Guitars, amps, ProTools recording software and Sibelius notation software. *** Travel Equipment *** Various music literature and method books. Laptop with Garage Band used to create backing tracks for practicing. *** Specialties *** Emphasis on rhythms, correct technique and reading (standard notation
