About Steven

I teach piano, guitar, and voice. I teach at all levels. Beginners are always welcome and encouraged to attend. I have successfully taught hundreds of students. I'm a passionate and motivated teacher who loves working with students. Be prepared to have a lot of fun!

Here is a little bit of history for you.
At age 19, I started performing piano at private parties, cabarets, and hotels throughout the San Diego and Los Angeles regions. While performing, people would come up to me and ask me if I teach piano. I agreed wholeheartedly. Those students referred me to other potential piano students. Within a couple years I was teaching piano full time. The entire process repeated for both guitar and voice. Today I teach full time on all three instruments. Many of my students receive lessons on two instruments, for example guitar-voice or piano-voice. It is exciting for me in hearing students, play their instrument and sing their favorite song!

PIANO - GUITAR - VOICE LESSONS:
- In The Music Studio (Coronado)
- In Your Home Via WebCam

I have been teaching online lessons in places like New York, Virginia beach, Carmel Valley, Eastlake, and college campuses. I use multiple camera angles, along with great audio and it feels like the student is sitting two feet from me. You just need a computer with an Internet connection to get started with the convenience of online lessons!

PIANO - KEYBOARD 
The piano is the king of instruments, so much fun to play. I have over 25 years experience as a professional teacher of piano successfully teaching hundreds of students. Teaching all levels. Beginners are always welcome. All ages. Be ready to learn and have a lot of fun!

GUITAR / ACOUSTIC / ELECTRIC 
The guitar is the most popular instrument in the world and so much fun to play! I combine methods of teaching sight reading, playing by ear, and improvisation. Through the process, I teach all the fundamentals of technique in guitar for correct hand positions, fingering, and stance. Strumming, finger picking, hybrid picking, the CAGED formula is included. I spend considerable time mapping out chord changes of standard and popular songs. My students learn theory while having great fun learning songs. After a spell, my students can play songs right off the radio. I have a recording studio, and produce recordings and CDs to aid in the learning process, as well as making it more fun for my guitar students. Sometimes a pupil can learn better with recordings of various tempos so I give them the different tempos to gradually get comfortable in mastering the guitar song. My guitar students get to play songs and guitar instrumentals they enjoy!

VOICE - SINGING 
The singing voice is the grandest instrument of all instruments. I have over 20 years experience as a professional teacher of voice successfully teaching students. Provide teaching at all levels. Beginners are always welcome too. Most ages. In teaching voice, I employ the methodologies of Bel Canto, Alexander's technique, and the secrets of singing. By the way, Alexander’s technique can bring back to health a damaged speaking voice, as well as keeping the singer’s voice sound and pain free. Singing really involves three areas: mind, technique, and performance. There are many technical concepts to train in singing. Here, I mention just three, from vowel shapes, to understanding consonants, to landing gently on high notes. As my voice students become more and more comfortable in developing technique, then they can sing with great expression. Again, singing involves the intellect, technique, and performance. My students read the colorful spectrum of voice. After all is said and done, the chief purpose of singing is to bring oneself joy! Even better, when you know singing and sound great.

PERFORMANCE
Steven B has extensive experience in performance. For many years, he performed piano and sang at many fine establishments throughout San Diego and Los Angeles. Later on, he produced a concert tour and performed 50 concerts to 15,000 young people throughout San Diego. The title of his concert tour is Heroes In Our World. Steven B played keyboards, guitar, and sang. The concerts honored real-life moms, dads, doctors, nurses, teachers, athletes, entertainers who give back to charity, police officers, firemen, and explorers who make our world a better place. His list of performances continues. He has a record of being the only musician to write a song, produce it, playing the instruments and vocals, along with filming and editing the videos of the performances each week for 52 consecutive weeks. His students benefit because he teaches many aspects in performance and can prepare students for any kind of audition or performance.
