As the son of a piano teacher, Stephen Nutt has been around music his entire life.  While his first musical training was, not surprisingly, on piano, it was the discovery of his uncle’s Beatles record collection that sparked a life-long enthusiasm for playing guitar, singing and writing songs.  The appeal of The Beatles’ music was that with a Mel Bay chord book and repeated listening repetition, Stephen could enjoy the thrill of playing along with the records! Playing trumpet in the school band furthered his musical education and, though self-taught by ear on guitar, he came to the conclusion at age 16 that music was his vocation.  Enrolling at University of North Texas in Jazz Studies, Stephen quickly discovered how much he had yet to learn.

One year after graduating from UNT with his Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Studies, Stephen returned to pursue a Master of Music degree in Classical Guitar Performance. He began teaching while completing his postgraduate studies, serving as Graduate Teaching Fellow at UNT. 

Since that time, Stephen has taught guitar both privately and in the classroom, as well as music theory, music appreciation, and Jazz Ensemble at Tarrant County College and El Centro College. He is currently an instructor in classical guitar at North Lake College, and teaches private guitar and Guitar Reading Ensemble at Brookhaven College.

Owing to his diverse musical tastes and background, Stephen understands his students' desire to be working toward the goal of playing the music that they love, while also being committed to imparting the fundamentals of music theory as well as the physical mechanics of playing an instrument.

In addition to performing solo classical engagements, Stephen also plays guitar with '60s British Invasion band Revolution 9, electric bass with 60's/70's Top 40 cover band Darkest Before Dawn, as well as electric and classical guitar in the vocal Jazz trio Independently Blue.
