“My two boys have had guitar lessons with Steve for the past eighteen months. The one thing which impressed me the most (apart from the incredible knowledge and skill of all the instruments he teaches), is his extreme caring and gentle nature and withstanding patience with the children. Many a times where I would have given up on them, Steve showed a quiet, gentle perseverance which impressed me (and which the kids responded to!). Steve’s passion for music and teaching others is evident and I would highly recommend him. Over the years, having learnt music myself, I can say he is one of the best music teachers I have come across.”Maree Turner.
