About Steve

I have been a professional musician for over 40 years, performing locally, nationally, and internationally as a jazz and classical flutist, and also as a fretless and fretted bassist doubling on guitar. I have performed 6 contracts as a flutist and bassist on Princess Cruise Lines and Royal Caribbean, and have performed on national tours with name artists.

My primary mentor in college was the leader of the New York Woodwind Quintet, as well as an accomplished member of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. As a bassist, I performed or toured with many jazz, blues, country, and soul greats.

My goal in teaching students is to help them grow in all aspects in Music; the technical, aesthetic; and emotional dimensions. I enjoy teaching students of all ages, from youngsters to senior citizens without exception.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Flute

I have been a professional flutist for over 40 years playing classical, jazz and most other styles of flute.

I received my B.A. at SUNY at Stony Brook where I studied flute with the great Samuel Baron of the New York Woodwind Quintet and Paul Gray of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.

I also studied flute and composition in graduate school at the University of Kentucky.

Having joined the Musician's Union in 1965, I have preformed professionally on flute since 1972 in a wide variety of ensembles.

I presently preform in a classical flute and guitar duo as well as a jazz duo and numerous larger groups.

Guitar

I have played electric and acoustic guitars and electric bass professionally since 1965 in a variety of rock and jazz groups.

I enjoy teaching beginners as well as intermediate level students.

I also can teach music theory as it applies to the guitar.
