    Steve is a remarkable teacher. I have learned so much from him in a very short time. He knew where I was at musically and geared his lessons accordingly. His instructions are clear, he is patient with me and, last but not least, he's a great guitarist, in that he can play proficiently in a variety of styles that inspire me.
