These are reviews provided by Steve's students and colleagues:



Beata Ben - Epsom - February 16th, 2015

"My daughter has been taking lessons with Steve for a year.  I have found Steve to be a very knowledgeable guitarist with great ability and a very patient tutor, he has introduced new chords, techniques and tunes with very clear explanations of anything she's not sure of. Lessons are informal, one-to-one and kept fresh, working with new material each time so practice never becomes uninteresting. I would certainly recommend Steve, we're extremely happy with him as he's very friendly, fun and has great teaching ability."

Amanda Amos - Ashtead - February 1st , 2015

"My son Corey, who is 11, is being taught by Steve. His interaction with my son is amazing. His enthusiasm which transfers to Corey is very apparent. He makes learning a great deal of fun. Corey has gained confidence in his ability and thoroughly enjoys jamming with Steve. I cannot recommend Steve enough to anybody wishing to learn guitar. Corey’s comment, "Steve is so awesome his rating is off the charts!"".

Shirley Kennett - Worcester Park - January 29th, 2015 

"Steve is enthusiastic and passionate when teaching my son how to play the guitar. He makes it enjoyable to learn and builds a wonderful rapport which is evident to see. My son has maintained enthusiasm and has developed well over the last few months. I would highly recommend Steve to anybody interested in learning the guitar ... He has even helped my husband improve !" 

Jacinta Hamill - Worcester Park - September 8th, 2014

"Aisling and I cannot rate Steve highly enough for his teaching skills and enthusiasm.  After just the one year with Steve, Aisling is now very competant on the guitar.  She plays her guitar 7 days a week as she enjoys it so much.  Aisling studied guitar for 3 years through school prior to Steve.  At that stage guitar was a chore and I had to ask her to practice.  She now understands the guitar and reading music so much better and enjoys the guitar rather than it being just another piece of homework.  The bonus of Steve playing guitar alongside her during her lessons is just perfect.  Aisling and I would not hesitate to recommend Steve for guitar lessons."

 Paul Young - Worcester Park - November 14th, 2013

“Steve has been teaching me for over a year now. His feedback and advice has been invaluable in improving my technique, gaining confidence, and understanding all the complexities of practicing, playing and performing live. He has fantastic ability and a great understanding of all aspects of guitar playing. Highly recommended.”


Emma Dennis - Epsom  - October 28th, 2013

"Steve has been teaching my 10 year old son for approx. 8 months now. Starting as a complete novice he is now able to play many different songs and is learning lots of different styles. Steve is so encouraging and even makes the theory interesting and fun. I would happily recommend Steve, he's a great teacher."



Max Elliott - Thames Ditton - October 6th , 2013

"Steve has been teaching me for nearly five months now, and as soon as I started lessons with him I took an immediate liking to him. He's given me some great advice on technique and Steve is always happy to teach me whatever I want to learn. I really feel that in a short space of time Steve has helped my guitar playing come on massively and I couldn't have done much of this without him."



Stuart Carter - Proprietor of Powerhouse Studios - April 8th 2013

"I have known Steve for a number of years and he is one of the best young guitarists I have seen in a long time. He has an extensive knowledge of theory and as a teacher is able to convey this with great enthusiasm and encouragement."


Tracey Iqbal - Thames Ditton - Jan 29th, 2013

"Steve has been an amazing guitar teacher. He teaches my 10 year old and 9 year old boys. He took over from a teacher that had taught them for 3 years. As soon as Steve took over he motivated them by getting them to play tracks they recognised, he had been very encouraging and is always on hand to give praise and feedback.  They have made more progress in 6 months than 3 years! the difference is amazing!
My eldest participated in a talent contest at school and Steve supported him by writing the music for him to follow and it gave him a huge amount of confidence to perform in front of his peers. The boys now look forward to lessons, love to practice to impress Steve, see him as a great mentor and someone to aspire to. I can't recommend Steve enough as a teacher - he will have you rocking out in no time!!!!"

Becca Malcomson/Zac Hutchings - Gomshall - Jan 24th, 2013 

"Steve has tought my 12 year old son for over 2 years now and has fuelled his passion for playing the guitar. Steve is extremely talented on acoustic and electric guitars, name a song and he will teach it to you. We would whole heartedly recommend Steve for all levels of tuition. ... Thank you Steve! from Becca and Zac" 


Sam Keats - Ewell - Nov 6th, 2012

"Steve has been teaching me for 5 months now and I feel I have improved so much with all his tips and tricks (and of course not forgetting his  metronome drills) his skills and knowledge still amaze me. The best and most enthusiastic teacher I have had".

James Johnson - Effingham - Nov 4th, 2012

"You have been my tutor for almost 3 years and I have come a long way and have learned so much. Cheers."

Max Jukes - Weybridge - Nov 1st , 2012

"Steve is the best teacher I know and I have had fun learning all he has taught me. You're the best Steve!"

Pete Chapman - Bisley - Jun 10th, 2012 

"I've recently started playing and recording  in a studio with Steve.  He is an accomplished guitarist, full of enthusiasm and any one who has lessons with him will have a lot of fun while learning".

Arron Green - Bisley - Jun 25th, 2012 

I have known Steve for just over a year now and he is a great person to work with. We did a summer rock school last year and his enthusiasm really made the kids feel good about themselves and from that we had some great results. I have just started a band with him and I really am amazed with some of the things that he comes out with, you really have to hear it to believe it. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to have lessons with him and anyone who is looking for a session guitarist, definately give him a call.

Brian Hanlon - Ripley Guitars - May 3rd, 2012  

"Having had the pleasure of working with Steve I can personally recommend his outstanding ability to generate a fun and enthusiastic approach toward mentoring potential up and coming guitarists, Way to go Stevie!"

Stephen Connor - Ashtead  - May 3rd, 2012

"I had lessons with Steve on a one to one basis when learning to play electric guitar. Steve's enthusiasm for guitar is infectious and his teaching style is very relaxed. I would recommend Steve without hesitation to beginners wishing to learn the basics of guitar as well as to more experienced guitarists who want to improve on their playing styles and techniques".
