Sten's Guitar Studio | Creative New York Guitar

Instruction in a creative pursuit should not focus on the generic, but rather on each unique individuals way to meet and approach both traditional and new techniques and repertoires. And a school's philosophy should not be about "trying to keep" their students, but on the contrary to help them move on with their music to constantly new goals, situations and scenarios. With a history of contributing to creative music in New York City since 1994 and worldwide for four decades, and academic affiliation with premier US and International institutions, we have a thoroughly documented successful history of coaching music industry professionals, helping students get accepted into leading music and performing arts schools and musically mentor, teach and assist anyone and everyone.

04/24/2018

Congrats to my very talented longtime student Andre' Hetu for getting accepted into the Summer Jazz program at Eastman School of Music, Rochester NY, and with a scholarship to boot. Andre' started studying with me at First Flight Music School East Village NYC in 2011 and have since been accepted to prestigious academic programs at Manhattan School of Music, NY Jazz Academy and New York's highly selective music high school program at the Special Music School, Kaufman Center. Most of all hats of to Andre' for in an age and time where clones, tricks and gimmicks are considered real, so courageously and consistently making the rare, beautiful choice to stick to his own truly unique musical voice. Can't wait to hear the music Andre' will be sending into the world and to us all in the future.

Sten's Guitar Studio | Session Log

Right now in process CHORD SOLOS we've been working on realizing various harmonic paths through Hoagy Carmichaels American classic 'Georgia' (on my mind). THREE ( or almost ) OCTAVE TRIADS for electric BASS guitar-a great way to map the fretboard+learn about inversions too. Still lots of work on READING and SIGHT READING music. On the Rock guitar side we are as always returning to the source-THE BLUES. Meat 'n Potatoes-Dig ! Too many things in orbit to list so SEE YOU IN SESSION. stensguitarstudio.com/log.html
