Stefan Grossman (born April 16, 1945) is an American guitarist, teacher and businessman. Born in Brooklyn, New York, he began playing guitar at the age of nine, turning to blues after hearing the music of Big Bill Broonzy and others at the age of 15. At this time, he began studying blues styles with the legendary Reverend Gary Davis who lived in the Bronx at the time. His music remains rooted in the blues but is not limited to it. However, his love of the blues and a desire to 'spread the word' lead him to produce a large number of tutorials including recordings, videos, CDs and DVDs.
