I will teach you how to approach the mandolin as a rhythm instrument as well as a melodic instrument, and how to use chords and modes in your lead and rhythm playing in bluegrass as well as traditional styles.

About Steve

Music has been a part of my life for over 4 decades. I stepped onstage when I was 15, and have been active in the music business ever since. I was raised in the New York / New England area, and played in many bands in the 70's and 80's, most notably the band AVALON. I moved to Florida in the late 8

Today was my 3rd lesson with Steve. It's honestly been amazing! He's super understanding and is very prepared. He is so dedicated to his students being successful that he even emails me audio files of him playing guitar over a song I'm learning so I have someone to practice with. If you want an amazing banjo teach look no further.

Steve puts you at ease during your lesson, he has patience and explains things very well. I have just started with Steve but I am excited to learn and I feel he can take my playing to where I want it to be. Thanks Steve!

This was my first professional music lesson in many years. Eric was great. He listen attentively to all my questions and provided solid answers with reasonable goals. This is my first experience with virtual lessons but Eric made the session both challenging and fun. I'm looking forward to continuing my sessions.

I had taken guitar lessons as a kid, but hadn't played in many years. During our first lesson, John figured out my skill level and started the lessons on the right track. I've enjoyed our lessons and the "assignments" he has given me, which are just what I wanted.

"Alani has been wonderful. She was so flexible and understanding when I had to cancel due to family reasons at the last minute. She has taught me several types of tunes and songs and listens and lets me take the lead in what I would like to learn and answers all my questions. She even simplified one of my favorite songs by Nickel Creek that was way too complex for me to try to play as a beginner but now I can play it and work up to the more complex version if I'd like. She is good at helping me find answers to many of my questions myself and guides me so that I can figures things out on my own. She is a great teacher for an independent person and can give a great foundation for a student to build from and know how to teach themselves. (Like the teacher who teaches one to fish rather than just giving the student the fish)"
