Steve started learning music at around the age of ten. He started on trumpet but shortly switched over to bass guitar and acoustic guitar; then later picked up the ukulele. Most of his life he has been involved with playing in school bands and church groups. He started teaching his first lesson in 2009, and signed on with California Keyboards to begin teaching professionally in 2010. He has been leading both of California Keyboard's Summer Guitar Camps and Summer Ukulele Camps since 2012. His ambition as a teacher is to help his students develop a love for playing music and to help them use that passion to become the best musicians they can be.
