Really personable and patient
I've had a lot of difficulty learning the guitar. Stephen was very attentive and patient. He can easily change his strategy if a certain way of teaching does not work with me.
Good first lesson. Worked on teaching son how to strum some strings and how to properly hold guitar, also gave some ideas as to what guitar we should buy.
Steve is a natural teacher. He is very methodical and demanding but also knows how to intrigue a newbie. He was able to engage my 9 year old daughter and at the same time he kept her challenged. She has learned so much in just 5 lessons. Most importantly, she now has the confidence and desire to attempt to develop her newly acquired skills on her own.+ Read More
My son absolutely loved this instructor. He was more excited about learning to play the guitar after Stephen left then ever before! He is absolutely looking forward to his next session.
Very helpful. Kids enjoyed the lesson.
Great first lesson!
Stephen was awesome! He was on time, friendly, and covered a lot in the first lesson. Highly recommended teacher!
I've been giving Stephen jazz guitar lessons for a little over a year and he's an absolute pleasure to teach. In that short amount of time I've seen (and heard) him grow leaps and bounds musically! I think Stephen's greatest assets are his understanding and knowledge of many styles of music, his commitment to improving as a musician and willingness to help others, his very friendly demeanor, and his inquisitive nature. I can't recommend Stephen highly enough!+ Read More
