Steve has been teaching for 35 years, and performing flamenco, jazz, and classical music on guitar, ukulele and bass for 40 years.
Steve currently offers lessons on these instruments at Gray Dog Music, in any style. He brings his teaching experience from music stores like Pops Music in Prescott, Guitar and Keyboard City in Phoenix, and Portland Music in Oregon.
Steve’s teaching style has evolved over the years into his current approach. “If you’re playing what you love, you’ll play more often, and naturally get better. I custom tailor lessons for you – so it is the best fit. I use YouTube, along with more traditional music sources to fuel your natural creativity.”
Steve has called Arizona his home for 40 years, and has performed regularly at resorts such as the Century Club in Prescott, Rancho de los Caballeros in Wickenburg, Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix and McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale. During his time here, he released a CD of Spanish and classical guitar music which has been featured on NPR, and “Lights Out”.
Over the past seven years he has enjoyed being the teacher for the Prescott Ukulele Guild, and currently performs therapeutic music weekly at hospitals and clinics in Arizona.
Adam was born in Louisiana and raised in New Jersey. He started learning how to play guitar at 13-years-old and began playing/singing in bands shortly after. He moved to beautiful Prescott in 2014, where he continued his passion for performing live.
Being mostly self-taught Adam loves to pass on what he’s learned over 18 years of hard work playing/practicing.
Adam enjoys teaching students (ages 12+) how to use their ears and creativity in order to understand music, with music theory woven throughout as reinforcement.
With less emphasis on sight-reading or advanced theory, Adam wants to see students playing songs and having fun as quickly as possible, learning the fundamentals without even realizing it!
Adam is currently the guitarist/singer for Scandalous Hands and Prescott JRAD.

As lead guitarist for the Grassroots Terry has performed on the Ed Sullivan Show, the Andy Williams show, and made several appearances on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand.

Terry’s memorable song-writing style embellishes his works by a virtual who’s who of major recording artists. His deeply moving ‘My Impersonal Life’ helped catapult Three Dog Night‘s ‘Harmony’ album to gold status and Terry‘s songs have appeared on recordings by Cher, Tom Jones, John Hammond, Larry Carlton and others.
In the recording studio and on the stage, Terri has worked and appeared with artists as diverse as Michael McDonald, Delaney and Bonnie, Smokey Robinson, Redbone, and many others.
