I teach specifically what I was taught personally by Lenny Breau (when he was still alive) and things I've learned along the way from my friends (many you've heard of...:).
What Lenny taught me was the simplest, yet most profound lesson I ever had... making it easy to learn anything I heard, and making it so I am rarely lost...even if I'm playing a session or live gig with people I've never met, and material I've never played.
I split my lessons into 3 areas:
1- Exercises: necessary for gaining strength quickly
2- Theory: (what Lenny taught me).
3- Learning songs: you pick them, so they are fun for you.I teach them to you while I teach you how to learn them yourself.
I still have an active career, playing in several bands, local and travel gigs. I also work in the musical instrument manufacturing industry as the Director of Creative Services for Boutique Amps Distribution. (Manufacturer of Friedman, Morgan, Soldano, Tone King, Diezel US, Bogner Pedals, Wampler, Matthews Effects & Synergy).
I love to pass on all I've learned over my very long career as a performer, session player, and recording artist.
I hope to hear from you soon!
Steve was a really great teacher because he helps you get excited to learn. Lessons with Steve were always fun and at a really good pace to be able to learn more about music and the guitar itself.
We first need to find out what you know/don't know/would like to know. Then we start where you are at.
I teach all ear training and how to read chord charts. I do not teach reading.
I have been playing guitar since I was 8 years old... getting paid to play since I was 10, and started recording at 13. I am now 65...so a long time! I've been a recording Artist on 2 different labels, and was a session player/singer for years.
People asking me.
Everything from beginner children & adults, to players that have a medium amount of expertise and want to improve.
You have to make sure you and your teacher click, and that you are motivated and having fun. You will quit if it's not fun.
