I am a musician of 16 years. I went to Salem State University for music, where I studied guitar, piano, violin and sitar. I am primarily a jazz guitarist, but I play fingerstyle, so I am well aquainted with different fingerpicking styles including classical. I have experience with punk, rock, raggae, bluegrass, classical, folk and other styles. I am confident in my skills to be helpful with just about any style the student wants to work on. I teach guitar, bass, ukulele and piano. I can also teach you things like ear training, music theory, how to read etc.

I have been teaching privately for 6 years. I am founder and president of Sound Harbor, a non-profit music education program. I have been teaching guitar, bass, ukulele and piano in private and group settings. I have had students as young as 6 and as old as 75. Whether you are looking to learn some of your favorite songs, or trying to gain a deeper understanding of music, I can help.

At age 71, my fist lesson with Steve was August 6, 2015. His instructional style, skillful listening, knowledge and passion for music inspired me to practice and practice and write and write. To those ends, Steve encouraged me to attend an Open Mic Night or two after 7 guitar lessons. Though I was shaking like a box of pills at my first OMN, I eventually overcame my fear and played and sang several blues tunes I'd written. My journey continues. Sometimes I feel like I'm six years old, yet I'm learning how to play better under Steve's guidance. His influence on me has been, and continues to be, profound. Steve's integrity is unimpeachable. I enthusiastically recommend Steve as a music teacher. Art Beane
