Chuck Stevens

Chuck Stevens started playing guitar at age 11 in his hometown of Bow, New Hampshire, with the dream of becoming a rock guitarist. After quickly teaching himself to play and learning his favorite songs, one year later, he began studying with local classical guitar teacher James McGuire and Chuck began studying formal technique and music theory through the guitar. In the next few years, his interests turned to classical guitar and also to improvised music and jazz, while at the same time he was writing music for his rock band, Phil and the Blank. When he was 15, his father bought him a Wes Montgomery compilation and the Miles Davis album “Seven Steps to Heaven.” From this point on, his ears were open and he began listening to every jazz album he could get his hands on, and although he was listening to a lot of classical music also, his practice of the guitar was geared to learning to play jazz.
