I teach Guitar, Vocals, Bass, and Songwriting & Production. at YOUR Home!

Student Benefits:

All my students feel like rock stars! Because I make sure each lesson is both fun and enriching.

I provide a clear lesson plan complete with goals, achievement levels, and performances.

I use a song based teaching system so my students are learning songs they love while they get the academic benefits of music.

I don’t overbook myself so my current clients get the full benefit of my energy.

Music lessons have other great benefits like: Better grades, higher self esteem, more confidence, good social skills. and more!
I’ve seen the benefits of music proven over and over, and I know that I’m teaching so much more than music.

I’m exclusive.

I have an incredibly high success rate because I only work with kids that are truly excited about music. The majority of my students study with me for years.

Customer Testimonials

Jim Steed has provided guitar instruction as well as voice lessons to our youngest daughter for over 5 years. Close friends of ours originally recommended him…he teaches all three of their children as well as others in our neighborhood.

His skill and manner of instruction in both guitar and voice is excellent and most importantly, works for our daughter. His patience during lessons also deserves mention. Jim is prompt and flexible and giving with his time while at the same time, he runs his “guitar school” as the business that it is.

We have gone on to praise him to others seeking guitar lessons for their children…and this is the best recommendation of all.


Jim is an excellent teacher and has been able to keep my son interested and progressing with his music for several years


Jim has consistently displayed remarkable joy and patience. The results have been amazing!


Working with Jim was never a chore—our 60 minute lessons flew by way too fast, always leaving me craving more time.


I had a handful of experiences with various instructors throughout the years. Jim Steed is hands down the most masterful, knowledgeable, and talented teacher I have worked with


For anyone out there looking for a dedicated and passionate instructor, look no further than Jim Steed. Jim will show up to every lesson ready to take your playing to the next level. I wish I had been working with him since I picked up my first axe
