About Steve

My name is Steve Bello and I have been a guitar player for 38 years, as well as a professional musician/recording/touring artist for 29 years. I earned an Associates Degree in Music from Bergen Community College (Paramus, NJ) in 1991, and have been a guitar/bass teacher since 1996.

I have taught students of all ages, ranging from 6 years old to 60, and I tailor my lesson plan to each student's needs. Depending on the skill level, whether you may be an absolute beginner or a pro looking to add more colours to your sonic palette, I can help you reach your fullest potential. Not only do I teach the basics of guitar, I also teach music theory, ear training, and songwriting. I have also had a few students go on to become professional artists themselves.

While I pride myself on being a heavy metal guitar player, I can teach other genres such as funk, jazz, and blues. I have often said that my students can teach me a thing or two, and if someone exposes me to a style or a simple guitar lick that eluded me, all the better! Teaching is a two-way street in my world.

In addtion to teaching, I am a recording artist who has released six albums independently, as well as opened for many national acts. I toured Germany in 2014 with world-renowned bassist TM Stevens (Miles Davis/James Brown/Steve Vai) and TC Tolliver (Plasmatics). I also have many endorsements from such companies as Ibanez, Orange, GHS, Spectraflex, etc.

If you are interested in signing up for lessons with me, please contact a manager at either the Ramsey or Paramus locations.
