My teenage son has been taking guitar lessons with Stephen for nearly two years. What I like about Stephen is that he is patient yet demanding with my son and his development in guitar. In addition to giving him a foundation in guitar basics, he is also very creative with giving options for learning how to play through songs my son would like to explore. Stephen is great at using contemporary and classic rock and other genres of music for teaching concepts, from forming chords to solos. We will continue working with Stephen as our go-to guitar teacher. Highly recommended!
My son, 15, has been working with Stephen for the past few years (3 I guess!) and he really enjoying learning jazz guitar from him. Stephen replaced my son's previous guitar teacher, who moved to California. My son enjoyed a lot working with Wil (Wil worked with my son for 5 years), so I was a bit concerned about changing instructor. Yet, Stephen succeeded. He is very good and polite, most of all, he is patient and great instructor who follows my son's music interests and goes beyond classical music.
Stephen is a fantastic teacher! He has a lot of patience and keeps my 5-year old son engaged with his piano lessons.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
