About Steven

Cincinnati is my home town but I've lived in Louisville for 20 years. While in Cincinnati, I taught at 4 different music stores for many years. I spent 5 years on the road backing up major acts in rock, country, R & B, funk, jazz, musicals, and plays. Some of the folks I played with went to L.A. and have played or are playing with Diana Ross, Janet Jackson, major Las Vegas gigs, etc. They can provide referrals, if needed. I have another former bandmate who is a phd professor with tenure at Miami-Dade College. I attended G.I.T. (Guitar Institute of Technology which is now part of the Musicians Institute) in 1979-80.
After I quit the road, I concentrated on studio work. I played on albums and demos and then started in advertising, creating the concept of the company, making inside and outside sales calls, producing the demos, presenting the demos on sales calls, writing, producing and playing on the radio, t.v. and corporate "spots" that my musical partner and i did 1989-1994. I then went to work for Fedex as a courier and dispatcher for approx 20 years (I retired last Dec 19 2014) At FedEx our background check included Kentucky, F.B.I., and Homeland Security background checks due to the sensitive freight we carried and had access to at every cargo facility at every airport in the U.S.A.

My experience in so many facets of the music business. The amount of years teaching guitar in Cincinnati music stores. My education is at the Musician's Institute

I get very excited about the progress my students make! My lessons sometimes run overtime (no extra charge) because I have a student who is really into it. It is just so much dang fun! From beginners who learn their first song and have that smile you can't get rid of to the intermediate folks who "hit the wall" and then BAM get to that next level, to the advanced students who want a new challenge (and also challenge me!) I just love it!

Guitar

I've played guitar off and on for 50 years. I have been in working bands playing rock, blues, R & B, funk, jazz, and country. I play with a pick and finger style. I can sit down and play an acoustic guitar or a jazz "box" with no effects and make it sound sweet because the sound comes from YOUR hands and YOUR heart.
