About Steve

Hello. You can call me Steve. I’m a musician in Richmond, VA. My musical journey started when I heard my uncle playing “Puff the Magic Dragon”. Since then, I’ve been soaking up every ounce of music that my brain will absorb. Over the years, I have played guitar, bass, piano, violin, saxophone, and various other electronic noise makers. Guitar will always and forever be my primary instrument. I’ve been playing for close to twenty-six years, teaching for ten.

Having received a Masters of Music degree from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2005, I’ve continued at said institution as a member of both the guitar faculty and theory faculty. When not wearing my professorial hat in the classical realm, I keep a roster of private students that covers all ages, styles and skill levels that keep me on my toes. Each student brings their own character and style to lessons, forcing me into new and creative ways of presenting the given material so it makes sense for them and sparks their musical endeavor. This creative energy flows into my own compositions, which find me splitting time between writing in the more traditional “songwriter” vein and soundscapes that veer towards the classical and electronic world of sound.
