Guitar Lessons

Private guitar lessons offered to beginners, intermediate, and advanced players both online and in-person. Students will build effective habits and techniques on the guitar that will directly apply to the pieces and songs they love.

Mission Statement

Providing exceptional guitar instruction that creates an atmosphere of learning and enjoyment for students to exude confidence and joy in their playing and musical expression for years to come.

Guitar lessons can help you:

  • learn to focus your mind

  • develop self-discipline

  • gain confidence in your playing

  • feel inspired and inspire others with your playing

  • express yourself

The classical guitar style will be incorporated into our weekly lessons.  It is the goal of these first few weeks to supply each student with a foundation of understanding in the classical guitar technique that will allow them to progress in the musical direction of their choice, which may be to continue with the classical style or to integrate popular or folk styles if the student wishes.

“I hired Stephan to continue teaching my son classical guitar, and we have been beyond pleased.  Stephan has been an absolute pleasure to work with — flexible with scheduling, super friendly and very knowledgeable.  Most importantly, my son really responds to him.  Stephan has a very calm demeanor and is great with kids.  He has also gone out of his way to let us know about classical guitar concerts and events which my son has really enjoyed.  My son is really blossoming under Stephan’s instruction and seems to be genuinely inspired to continue learning. 

I wholeheartedly recommend Stephan for any child or adult wanting to learn (or continue learning) classical guitar!”

Lisa Green

“I’ve played guitar for years, but after only one lesson with Stephan I noticed a huge improvement in sound, comfort and confidence. His talent in playing guitar is matched by his ability to teach–not a common gift. I highly recommend lessons from Stephan for anyone with a desire to take their skill to another level–beginners and experienced guitarists alike.“
