About Stephen Klingman

Stephen Klingman is a guitarist and multi-instrumentalist from Raleigh NC. He learned to play the viola at age 7 and performed with the school orchestra, including a performance at Carnegie Hall in New York. At age 10 he picked up the guitar and never looked back. He taught himself to play and eventually had a few private teachers, where he learned advanced techniques in music theory and improvisation.

Now, Stephen is a professional musician who performs with a variety of projects. He is the guitarist for Grammy Lifetime Achievement recipient Shirley Caesar as well as two Durham based hip-hop groups: "Tha Materials" and "Tanajah". He has performed around the triangle, at Shakori hills music festival, and in 2019 he went on his first tour where he played on stage at the Montreal Jazz Festival.

One of Stephen's true passions is teaching. He believes knowledge is the most precious gift, and he considers it a privilege to be able to share music with the next generation. He is patient and caters to each student's individual needs. Stephen's door is always open, so drop in to talk about lessons any time!
