Steve Kaufman - Three Time National Flatpicking Champ and

Three Time 2nd Place National Flatpicking Champ.

We call him Champ-Champ-Champ-Cha-Cha-Cha

(Also 3rd Place National Mandolin Champ but who's keeping score)

 

Best Selling Author in Flatpicking and Mandolin Books and DVDs for

Mel Bay Publications and Homespun Tapes

 

This is my third year with this award winning class format. They say it's like being in the front row of one of my intense workshops but being the only one in the class.

 

Who Can Join Us?

If you own a computer with decent connect speed, you can join us. You can use dial-up, iPads, iPhone and smart phones and your laptop or desk top computer. You don't need a mic though it would help. You don't need a camera. You can use the chat box to type questions or your mic. This is totally interactive and live.

 

We use Go To Meeting which is a smooth, seamless signal just like watching one of Steve's DVDs but we're LIVE!

How to choose your class level. 
My classes are much more in depth than many other instructors. Constantly building on themselves through our reviews and "add in" licks and runs. Choose the class a level lower than you think you are or should start. 

 

See you in class....

What Folks Say About Steve

“As a professional guitar teacher, Kaufman has perfected his teaching skills as much as his picking technique.”  Bluegrass Unlimited

 

“Kaufman patiently teaches and extols the virtues of melodic guitar playing. He also shows that you don’t need an electric guitar and an amp. to be electrifying on the guitar.”  The Music Paper

 

“Kaufman has a low key, friendly way of presenting his material and he is usually clear in stating his ideas.” California Traditional Music Society

 

“Kaufman is a formidable player, and the accomplished flatpicker can use his books for guitar contests, for technical exercises, or to develop picking speed and fingerboard knowledge.”  Acoustic Guitar

 

“Steve Kaufman is great; the boy can pick. He knows what good music is.” Doc Watson

 

“Kaufman is a monster player. Fluid at any speed and in all registers, he also commands a fine sense of melody which imbues his improvising with a lushness that eludes many flashy guitarists.”  The Chicago Tribune

 

“Kaufman’s playing is spectacular. His speed is astounding, more so because he never sacrifices tone, never lets his notes blur together. He makes his acoustic guitar a versatile, expressive lead instrument.” Arkansas Gazette

 

“Steve is one of the best young flatpickers in the country. And along with his flair for the hot and flashy, he has some additional ammunition like power, clarity and musical taste.”  Dan Crary

 

“The tone and phrasing is excellent and most important- the melodic sense is superb. You certainly set some high standards for all of us to aspire to.”  John Hartford
