Steve McNie's insightful teaching has inspired hundreds to play better and progress faster at any skill level. He's big on style, groove, feel and form. Always fun and reflective of the ukulele's inherent whimsy, Steve balances playing and singing with ear training, relevant theory, rhythm, chordal awareness, groove and musicality from charts, notation and by ear.
Steve regularly presents a variety of public workshops for adults, teens and children. He has lead ukulele workshops at festivals like Summerfolk and the Beaches International Jazz Festival. Ongoing work in schools includes Havergal College, St. Clement's and the Mabin School. A lengthy list of private students includes Oscar nominee, Jessica Chastain.
He is a (founding) member/cellist in the Corktown Chamber Orchestra, plays bass, banjo, melodica, cello and accordion in The McFlies, produces Toronto's popular Corktown Ukulele Jam and the Toronto North Ukulele Jam at Cosmo Music in Richmond Hill, and is called upon to record and arrange for a variety of music projects.
