“Steve is a very talented musician and an equally talented teacher. My daughter has been taking lessons from Steve for four years and has learned so much. Steve brings his knowledge of guitar techniques to his teaching while also integrating enthusiasm, support, challenges, and his love of the guitar and music is clear and contagious.”
Hi I’m Steve Anthes and I teach guitar lessons in Madison, WI. Teaching guitar has been my career for over ten years now. In those years I have developed many great techniques for both the beginner, intermediate, and advanced player. The longer I teach the more I recognize what works and what doesn’t. Having clear instruction for the beginner will help get results faster. Beginners who teach themselves don’t place enough emphasis on the physical side of playing! If your an intermediate player you may not know exactly how to proceed further on your own. This is something I deal with all the time and can help you get back on track. Helping advanced players is a bit different in that I need to sit with them to understand where they are and what they are looking for. No matter what stage you are in your playing lessons can help tremendously.
"I’ve been getting lessons from Steve for about a year, and they have been fantastic. I came in already an intermediate player, and as a self-taught guitarist, never really wanted to take lessons. I feel as if I have learned enough where I’m taking a university class on guitar, but personalized to do whatever I want. Steve is extremely accommodating, fun to take lessons from, and an incredible guitar player. If you’re at any level learning guitar, I would strongly recommend going in"!!!
Super nice and patient guitar teacher! He spent time getting to know my goal and my background, and then provides personalized content for the lessons. Would recommend to my friends!
"Steve has been nothing short of a great teacher for me. When I started 2 years ago with him I new very little about playing any kind of music. Steve has been very patient with me and knows what is holding me back without me saying anything. I'm constantly amazed at the knowledge he possess about all things guitar. I consider him a good friend as well as a great teacher that has me playing guitar better than I ever thought I would."
Mickey Magnum is a 6 piece original rock band. Last year the band wrote and recorded there first full length album called “Mayhem.” The goal of the band was to bring back high energy fun rock guitar music. Writing original music is flexing a completely different muscle. Steve was trying to create fun riffs that you just don’t hear anymore. They have also infused the harmonica into each of the songs that give a very unique sound. Check out Mickey Magnum on any streaming service!
I’m looking forward to meeting you. Send a note or call so we can do a free meet and greet!
