« Steve is talented, hardworking, and passionate about what he does. With decades of experience, Steve teaches you the fundamentals of guitar in a fun yet detailed manner. He also teaches you songs you’ve been trying to learn. This helps as motivation for showing progress and it helped me understand how much I learned from him. Thanks Steve! »

Performing guitarist with over 12 years of experience gives private lessons in NYC

Methodology

I grew up in a family of teachers and one of the most important things I learned was that every student is different and therefore my teaching methods need to adapt to what is best for them, as opposed to expecting the student to fit a mold I have set for them.

Background

I am a professional performing musician, music educator and music producer. I have been performing on my instrument for over 12 years. In 2015 I graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music with my Masters degree in jazz guitar performance. In 2016 I was selected as one of 10 guitarists from around the world to participate in the Montreux (Switzerland) Jazz Guitar Competition.

Steve Bilodeau was an awesome instructor. We did weekly or bi-weekly lessons for about a year and covered the basics of jazz guitar scales, chords, and theory. Professional dude, great guitar player and an expert at his craft.
