Steve received his training at Berklee College of Music where he received a degree in songwriting and performance. Steve keeps busy as a professional songwriter and accompanist: he plays behind many singer/songwriters, and has toured the states and Europe.

Steve looks forward to sharing his love for music and helping new students achieve their goals.

From there, the lessons expand from chords to rhythm, scales and music theory. Singing is encouraged, but not required.

Guitar · In studio

Our son learned to play the guitar with Steve when he was 11 or 12 years old. Steve was always fun, friendly and patient. He is a natural teacher. Our son had a very easy time relating to Steve and always looked forward to his weekly lessons. Steve was his teacher for several years and went above and beyond what was expected of him, for example by attending our son's performances with his school band. Steve instilled in our son what I am sure will be a life long love of playing the guitar. Our son is now 18 and is still extremely into the guitar, so much so that he won a Young Arts award and was accepted to the 2017 Grammy Jazz Camp. While Steve moved away from Cambridge (where we live) to Brooklyn for family reasons, they still stay in close touch, which is a testament to the great teacher-student relationship they had.
