Teaching guitar to folks of all ages for over 30 years

Steve Pederson — Founder

Steve has been playing guitar since 1983, performing as a soloist, in duos, with bands and in orchestras. In that time he has become accomplished at classical, jazz, blues, pop and rock styles. In 1992 he graduated with a degree in Classical Guitar performance from the University of Minnesota.

Steve has written music and produced multiple albums in different genres and performed on many artists recordings. He has performed from coast to coast in iconic venues for tens of thousands of people.

Steve has also been a worship leader for over 30 years. He writes his own worship songs which are in demand and celebrated wherever he plays.

Steve has been a private music instructor as well as a music teacher at the high school level. Over the years he has shared his joy of learning and performing music with scores of students. He helps students find the love of playing every day and helps them identify obtainable yet challenging musical goals.

Steve’s love for helping and supporting people goes beyond the musical realm as well. He has certifications in Advanced Life Coaching, NLP, Modern Applied Psychology, and as a Master Mindfulness Practitioner. He uses this background to enhance the learning experience by creating a safe environment for students to explore what is interesting to them while enabling them to overcome blocks that may prevent them from becoming their best.

Steve is married with two daughters.

What My Students Have to Say

My daughters are very happy with their teacher and have shared with me that he is very funny and very good at what he does. He encourages them to continue to do their best, and he finds ways to help them stay on track with their music. I know he’d make an excellent teacher for anybody that wants to explore music and learn.

While in high school, my son, David, studied guitar with Steve. He only stopped because he went away to college. He loved Steve's laid back and flexible teaching style. It was a big change from some of the more rigid learning environments David had experienced. Steve incorporated the music David liked in the lessons. Thanks, Steve, for teaching David great skills and building his confidence!
