Steven is a very knowledgeable teacher who makes learning fun. He is encouraging, patient, and thorough, making sure I understand and have mastered each new technique or concept. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to play guitar in a self-paced, relaxing way, without ever feeling overwhelmed. He’s a fantastic musician!
