Watching a student "get it" ... watching them work really hard to conquer something difficult, and then see the look on their faces when they do... these are some of the things that drive me to teach.
Though I am 'mostly' self-taught, many of my friends from childhood, as well as many current "Well-Known" Guitarists are friends...and therefore I have a ton of personalized tips I've learned from all of them.
I look forward to talking with you more about it!
He is very considerate at what he does, like when you give him songs he also has you participate in figuring out which note it starts on and helps you figure out how to find the other notes aswell as making sense of it all in terms of what the key is and how it all comes in the rhythm of Do Re Mi and overall excellent attitude
Steve was a really great teacher because he helps you get excited to learn. Lessons with Steve were always fun and at a really good pace to be able to learn more about music and the guitar itself.

I have been playing guitar since I was 8 years old... getting paid to play since I was 10, and started recording at 13. I am now 65...so a long time! I've been a recording Artist on 2 different labels, and was a session player/singer for years.
People asking me.

You have to make sure you and your teacher click, and that you are motivated and having fun. You will quit if it's not fun.
