Steve Carter

I taught guitar at Berklee College of Music for 25 years. I am currently performing around New England. My specialty is solo jazz guitar, but I also perform with duos and trios. I'm active as a teacher and clinician.

Reviews of Steve's first solo CD, Act One:

A sublime solo guitar disc that highlights Carter's warm sound and thoughtful solo work on an extended collection of standards. Carter, who's been heard at local venues such as the Crescent City Bistro in Dover, is a fluid player with a keen sense of melodic development that doesn't succumb to virtuoso pyrotechnics. Tunes range from Billie Holiday's “God Bless the Child” to Herbie Hancock's “Dolphin Dance” to Jobim's “Once I Loved.” A fine set by an equally fine musician.

- Alan Chase, “Jazz Universe”, The Wire, New Hampshire

His guitar skills are impeccable, and he makes listening to solo guitar enjoyable...this guy's solo guitar is worth a listen. It also serves well for quiet moments of introspection and intimate thoughts.

- Sheldon T. Nunn, JazzReview.com

An intimate conversation between Steve and the listening audience as he presents to us one man's love of the guitar, the American Popular song, and how great both go together. Especially when played by a superb talent like Steve Carter.

Intermediate to advanced students

Credentials/Background:
I taught guitar at Berklee College of Music for 25 years. I currently teach at my home in Dover, NH, and I teach online correspondence lessons over the internet.

Clinic/Workshop Information:
My clinic offers a variety of approaches to improvisation. I use my THoTH Music Learning Software in all my clinics. This software, in addition to providing a rich database with information about standard tunes, generates chord-scale analysis, which I use as a starting point for improvisation. From there, I go into examples of applications of arpeggios, approach notes, motivic development, and other approaches.
