Guitar Lessons

Bob Stewart is a phenomenal guitarist.  At seven years old his dad taught him his first guitar chords.  That was the beginning of a passion for the guitar and other instruments of music. Now at sixty-four years his love for the guitar has only grown stronger.  Also a passion for teaching has been a strong point of his life. His background  in music has taken him from Bluegrass and Southern Gospel, through the beginning years of Rock and Roll, through some blues, light jazz, latin, bosa nova, celtic…etc. "I love a little of all the music…. I am not a fan  of all of any music". Teaching the different styles of music seems to reach a lot of people. "Faith based music has always been a part of my music... My love for praise and worship music started thirteen years ago.  My gift of music comes from God and I love playing to further His kingdom. "  Bob has been teaching for more than fifteen years guitar and photography professionally.
