a beautiful, sensitive guitarist
who knows how to play, write and record
— Steve Barta jazz composer / performer


Hi, I have been playing/composing for 30 years. I love the instrument, it's sound and versatility. I provide music for events, weddings, functions, concerts in the form of solo guitar, guitar and voice, duo guitar, guitar & bass, Guitar & Cello, guitar & percussion, trio combinations, quartets and more. I also love to teach and help beginners to advanced players learn how to play and improvise. I love to play Jazz, Latin/Brazilian guitar, modern pop, classical, blues, anything as long as it sounds beautiful!
