Stephen is the best teacher I have ever had. He is great at showing you proper practice techniques while also working on fun pieces. I have improved a lot since I started taking lessons with him and can't recommend him enough.

I have learned so much from Stephen about guitar. Stephen has taught me for a number of years and I have made great progress with the guitar, especially with chords and sight reading. He is an incredibly talented musician. He makes sure that lessons are interesting and increasingly challenging.
