Stephen Becker first started playing guitar in the 6th grade after brief
attempts at learning the violin and piano. His love for all types of music
prompted Stephen to join his middle school jazz band where he initially
became exposed to improvisational music. Stephen quickly enrolled in
the Santa Monica Academy of Music where he took lessons with Buzz
Gravelle, a UCLA graduate who taught Stephen jazz guitar and
introduced him to every style of music from classical to flamenco.
Stephen continued to lead his high school jazz band in addition to
various rock/pop groups that have successfully recorded music and
performed throughout the Sunset Strip in Hollywood.
Stephen has now been studying the guitar for eight years, and his
passion for a variety of music has brought him to the Oberlin
Conservatory where he is a Sophomore Jazz Performance Major. His
teachers include Bob Ferrazza (guitar), Billy Hart (drums), Dan Wall
(piano), and Gary Bartz (sax).
