There are LOTS of guitar teachers online...believe me, I know! But I feel confident that you'll find that I am the best deal, and I also offer the most "extras" (like my helpful weekly reminder emails)—not to mention that students will learn more under the guidance of an experienced, seasoned musician and teacher like me; I've played hundreds of shows in dozens of cities over almost three decades, and my playing can be heard on lots of songs (at last count it was in the hundreds) that have been released on CD, online, on vinyl, and even on cassette.

I studied music education, and I continue to better myself as a player every day; throughout the years I've taken lessons from some of the best teachers around, and I've read more guitar method books than I can even remember. I'm actually in the process of writing my own guitar method book, and it's those same time-tested approaches—and often even excerpts right from my book—that I use with my students.

All together, counting personal practice time, band rehearsal time, performance time, hours spent recording and working in various studios, time spent in music classes in grade school and college, time spent in lessons throughout the years, and also time spent giving lessons, I've got tens of thousands of hours of experience under my belt...and more and more each day! I've got the know-how and the ability to help you learn how to play guitar well, and to have fun doing it. Give me a call to set up your introductory lesson, and judge for yourself; you'll be impressed, I guarantee it.

    Stephen was a lifesaver during COVID. The virtual lessons gave the kids a sense of connection that wasnt academic- a portal to the outside world. He is a patient teacher and incredibly understanding and helpful to me as a parent with all aspects from technology to scheduling. Before each lesson, he communicates pro-actively so we know whats coming and is always prepared.
    Both kids enjoy the lessons. They continue to gain confidence and grow their interest and skills almost a year and a half later. We would all highly recommend guitar lessons with Stephen.

    Stephen is an extremely experienced and effective teacher.
    He tailors lessons to the students skill and objectives and closely monitors progress to ensure the plan is still appropriate.
    He is a very good listener and works to ensure the student is comfortable and understanding the concepts.
    Stephen effectively structures the next lesson based on the progress achieved at the last lesson.
    He is an excellent communicator and explains complex concepts in plain English.
    He is always on time for lessons and is totally reliable.
    Overall an outstanding guitar teacher.
