Steve Fox’s own experience as a guitar student at MI in 1984-1985, dramatically impacted the rest of his life. He was an avid guitarist, guitar teacher, luthier, guitar tech, and performer in several bands throughout his lifetime.
As an educator, Steve discusses his approach, and expresses a genuine love for the guitar and teaching which is clearly evident:
In 2017, Steve was invited to give a presentation at the Carmel Valley Library about guitar history and construction of various guitars, including a demonstration of his playing and singing on several songs:
He died instantly on October 1, 2020 in a tragic car accident at the age of 70.
His memory is being honored by the creation of this scholarship for a deserving student who embodies the qualities of creativity, versatility and passion for the guitar that were the hallmarks of Steve’s life.
