Teaching since:

I'm a classically trained guitarist performing and teaching in New York City. I've been playing for 15 years, studying classical guitar first at a performing arts high school and then at the UNC School of the Arts. I love teaching beginner students! I've found that the technique and knowledge inherent in learning a classical repertoire will give you the ability to play any genre. Working with me, you can expect to see, feel and hear your own progress every week--and simultaneously build self-confidence and drive. I believe in fostering a learning environment where everything feels possible. You're the student, which means this is your adventure. Tell me where you want to go!

Stephen is a very skilled guitarist and a patient, fun teacher. He's classically trained, but has versatile skills and teaches to your interests - we've been working on foundational techniques that translate into any type of music. I highly recommend working with Stephen!
