have you always wanted to play guitar?
are you just starting out but don't know where to begin?
have you been playing the same stuff for too long, feeling stuck?
want to get past 'cowboy chords' and play up the neck?
get into playing 'lead' guitar?
I can help
my name is Steve Peterson, I've been playing in electric blues and acoustic folk bands around the Seattle area for 4 decades; active in both Washington Blues Society and Victory Music - I am thoughtful and articulate, easy going and patient
guitar is a wonderful instrument; it is easy to start, difficult to master, has a nice voice & range to accompany singing, can be played in a group setting or on its own, can serve as a melody, harmony or rhythm instrument equally well, or all of them all at once; I've been trying to learn it for a long time, and I well understand the long frustration of slow progress, but also the gratifying ability to play music. Like so much that matters, you get out what you put in. I love playing the guitar. Give me a call, we can talk about this.

Steve is a very patient and knowledgeable instructor. He gives a good background on the theory and structure of the music I am most interested in learning. I highly recommend Steve to anyone who wants to learn to play guitar.
