Steven has been amazing!! I have little to no experience playing guitar, but I'm already getting the hang of playing well known songs! He does a great job of critiquing but also making the lesson fun! He tells me exactly what I need to do and the tools I need for the following lessons, so I always have a plan AND it's all in the comfort of my own home. I would highly recommend Steven, and if you're skeptical about taking an online lesson, don't be, because the attention Steven gives during lessons makes you feel like he's right there! Happy Strumming!

Steven's very patient and demonstrates what he wants me to do. As he says, "There are no mistakes," and we keep right on going. I feel as if my voice has been enriched and made prettier. I'm so glad I found Steven to be my vocal coach.

I've been teaching Guitar for 10 years and my students have gone on to play in different venues internationally. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to start playing songs and as time goes on you'll be able to not only play with proficiency but to compose music for Guitars. I specialize in Classical (Spanish) Guitar, Pop and Country, I typically use our own method books based on some of the teachings from the greatest composers that have played the instrument. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Please Read : OVERVIEW just below this, Thank you.

The Best way to achieve being a Great Guitar Player is buy Studying Music Theory, Learning Proper Technique and form on the Guitar. Anyone can just learn Chords or Songs buy just Practicing, even though you may be wrong and not know why. But to be Trained and develop the Correct way is 100% Faster, and help to eliminate any obstacles that you would encounter otherwise. You also would have a complete understanding of what you're doing, How it all works, and why.
