About Steve’s Teaching:
“I like to bring out the many different aspects of music, so that the student receives a wide range of instruction, from how to practice, how to look at music, the studies involved, and the relatedness between genres and instruments. A good example would be bluegrass, which is a mix of Irish, blues and jazz. Theory and reading are highly encouraged, and is taught in a useful, practical manner.“
