Personal Description:

Steve first started giging in bands when he was 23 years of age, his bass playing experience kicking off in the early1980’s, performing in pubs and clubs.

In 1984 he contacted highly acclaimed Musical Director/Bassist/Pianist John Quirk BMus(Hons), not just wanting to just learn songs, and this led to him having lessons with JQ Music between 1984 and 1986.

After relocating a family run business to the Midlands in 2002, a friendship developed with Stuart Preston who ran a Music Shop called 'Alpha Guitars'. A room at the back of the music shop was used as a music teaching studio, leading too him conducting bass guitar lessons in-store, at student’s homes, and also at community centres ran by the local authority.
