*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will be tailored to the students needs and interests. I cover anything from rock, jazz, country, blues, music theory, songwriting, and more. I will teach songs, lead guitar techniques, solos, riff's, all while explaining the theory and concepts behind the subject matter being studied! I feel that taking lessons should be an enjoyable experience and I try to make learning fun and rewarding at the same time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Fender electric guitars, Fender Deville amp, VHT Pitbull amp, a wide array of effects, Taylor Model 810 Acoustic, and everything needed to effectively teach a wide variety of subject matter. Online lessons will include written communication via email, text, or fax, depending on availability.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide my own needs, a guitar and small amp, music stand and paper, metronome, capo, etc. I expect the student to have a guitar and amp (if needed), and books we would be working out of, and basic accessories.

*** Specialties ***
Electric Lead and Rhythm Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Rock, Blues, Jazz and Country guitar styles, Nashville Number System, Songwriting, and more........

great teacher

I have been taking lessons with Steve for almost 2 years now and have improved greatly in that time period, both in my skill and my love for music.I enjoy taking lessons with Steve and look forward to doing so in the future.

Great teacher and loads of fun!

I've been taking lessons from Steve for almost 8 years (that in itself should say much about his instruction!). He is able to teach whatever category of music to any person at any level be it acoustic, electric, or theory. I would highly recommend Steve for any age group and for the novice or experienced player wanting to improve. After the many years learning from Steve I wouldn't think of taking lessons from anyone else!

Fantastic Teacher!

I tried to play guitar on my own for years, but until I started taking lessons from Steve, I never really made any progress. Steve is a great teacher that has both the natural ability to teach and play, which rare in the music lesson world. Don't waste your time and money taking lessons from someone that can't deliver what you are looking to accomplish. I believe you will be very pleased with your guitar progress if you decide to take lessons from Steve; I have personal knowledge of at least five persons of all ages taking lessons with him now and many others he has helped with various playing issues. If you need guitar lesson, Steve's your guy.

Glad I Found Steve

I had been taking lessons from a local guitar teacher for a couple of years before he moved out of state. I was concerned that I would not be able to find a quality teacher after that, however, Steve was suggested by my former teacher and I went in to see him for a lesson to see if I liked his style and methods. I have been learning how to play and about music from him for some time now. I would most definitely recommend Steve if you are looking for a teacher in the Murfreesboro, TN or Franklin, TN areas. He is professional, knows the music business and most definitely is a very good guitar player and teacher.

Kudo's to Steve!

I just wanted to give kudos to Steve F. I took lessons from him nearly 20 years ago in Ohio and knew at that time his talent and passion for music would be admired by many for years to come. In fact, Steve was such a great instructor I couldn't find a replacement as positive and willing to teach as Steve. He has a special talent and I'm very happy so many have an opportunity to learn from such a great guitarist.
