Steve Giordano

Steve Giordano is a Philadelphia jazz guitarist in great company.

He has lived, learned, loved and played in the most evolutionary age of creative music in America. Early teachers were by way of radio and then 45 and LP records from the nineteen fifties. Giordano learned from the best: screaming guitar solos from Elvis Presley's guitarist Scotty Moore then lured to jazz by Dave Brubeck

215-200-5719 My Philosophy I have been a musician since the age of 6. Although I have had a few “teachers” along the way at different times in my life, my real teacher has been the music itself. Obviously, our ears are the most important and personal mechanism when it comes to music. Musical knowledge should never supercede listening. Along these lines, our musical taste is personal, but deserves the chance to evolve without being stifled by rules or opinions. In my young adult search for a jazz teacher, I never quite found what/who I was looking for because everyone had a “method” that never included self musical exploration or how to think about music. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise for me because I looked at music from a common sense point of view without inhibitions and sort of became, for my students, the teacher I was looking for. The following is my life’s understanding of music and how to play with it, have fun with it, and experiment with it and hopefully, how to think about it.
