As a school-based instructor, I've taught electric, acoustic guitar and bass throughout South Florida and New York for over 20 years. I teach all ages --children and adults.
Whatever your personal musical goals, I'll make sure to make each lesson productive for you.
I'm currently also a freelance bassist/guitarist with live performance experience in bands throughout the Northeast of the US and South Florida. I've performed in many venues, festivals and major events nationwide. In addition, I'm been a studio session musician, composer and arranger on a host of CD projects. I've also judged county-wide talent /music competitions and opened for major headliner acts throughout my performance career.

My son really enjoys the sessions
My son is really enjoying the sessions with Steve. Steve is teaching him the songs that he loves. Ryan is always playing for us and that shows me that not only has Steve has taught him a lot, but also is making Ryan enjoy his lessons. My son has had lessons with a lot of different teachers and Steve is definitely his favorite.
