Hello, and welcome to the West Texas Steel Guitar School Website!  My name is Larry Toliver, and this is my lovely wife Susie. Together, we have put in a lot of effort and work to make this school become a reality.  I have been wanting to put together a GOOD steel guitar school for several years, and at this point in time, everything has worked out wonderfully to make it happen.  I have been a member of the West Texas Steel Guitar Association for several years, have put on Steel Jams, Steel shows, played at numerous steel shows such as the Dallas Steel Jamboree, The Branson Steel Show, and The Phoenix Steel show, and arranged music and bands for years.  One of the nicest & biggest country stars I have played with is Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers which is a highlight for me.  I also attended Jeff Newman's School when I was younger, and it truly doubled my steel playing ability.  It was truly the inspiration to get something like this going again for all the steel pickers who want to get together with some seasoned players and really LEARN.  I personally still play week in and week out and have for 30 years.  I have also teamed up with 5 other Texas Steel Guitar Greats to bring you what I think is an unbeatable team of STEEL EXPERIENCE!  We have myself, Johnny Cox, Steve Palousek, Gary Carpenter, Junior Knight, and Jim Loessberg.  Each of these gentlemen still perform weekly, and are in top notch form.  I will host and teach at each school, and we will alternate between these 5 players, and one of them will be at each school to teach a section and perform for you.  Their Bio's are linked to a separate page for your viewing.  There are several more pages on the site with school pricing, each teacher/players information and experience, the different types of classes, video clips, audio clips, and yes...even some stuff for sale.  As the school grows and matures, there will be more stuff added to the site, and my expertise with the site should hopefully grow and mature as well.  So, check us out, call me, ask questions, email me, or whatever.....as I am here to serve you, and help immerse you in the Pedal Steel while you are here at the school.  My wife and I will truly treat you like a king while you attend the West Texas Steel Guitar School.  I will honestly be glad to talk with you and answer your questions and help fulfill your needs and desires to the best of my ability.  Checkout the contact information page.
