My 8 year old absolutely loves his guitar lessons with Steve and has come such a long way since he started. Not only is he an excellent teacher but he also makes the lessons fun and my son always looks forward to going.
Great teacher ! Very patient and engaging and as a result my son loves going to his weekly guitar lesson. He has made a lot of progress since he started his lessons with Steve. Highly recommend!!
Steve is great teacher. He has made learning guitar fun. He is always encouraging and supportive and goes out of his way to find music I enjoy playing. Under his tuition I am tapping into my 'inner rock god'; shame it's 40 years too late. More...

Stephen is a really great teacher. I’m a complete beginner, and he’s always encouraging and inspirational throughout our sessions. Highly recommended to anyone looking to learn or improve. More...
I have been taking acoustic guitar lessons with Stephen since May 2019. As a very late starter ( I am in my late 50’s) progress has been slow but, thanks to Stephen’s experience, knowledge and extreme patience I am beginning to understand the rudiments of music theory, have mastered a good number of chords and I can play a few simple tunes. For anyone also thinking of taking up an instrument at a similar stage in life to me I can highly recommend the process, particularly in terms of mental stimulation, improved dexterity and creative achievement.I highly recommend Stephen and Guitar Lessons Camberley.

2 half hour lessons later and my boy came home and played 'Rain rain go away' by reading the music!! He says lessons are a lot of fun, and I'm very impressed with his progress. I would definitely recommend Stephen. More...
Stephen has been a model of patience with me. At 76, it's taking me longer to pick up the basics but with daily practice of the lessons I sense a modicum of instinctive fretting beginning to blossom!
Highly recommend Guitar lessons Camberley, my son who is 9yrs old starting lessons with Steve last year, he has recently just taken his initial grade exam and passed with distinction thanks to Steves tutoring, he is now looking forward to continuing lessons to work on grade 1 and beyond.

Steve is a great teacher and reignited my sons enthusiasm for guitar at a point when he was about to give up with Berkshire maestros . He has now passed 2 exams with Steve , one with distinction and one with merit . Highly recommend . More...
I'm delighted to offer a reference for your teaching, for which I am most thankful.
Steve first took me as a pupil in the middle of 2008. Up until then I had been a typical self-taught guitarist for about 25 years, and really I needed to have a much better understanding of the basics of what I was doing, in order to improve, whilst recognising that family and business commitments would limit the time I had available. Over the last two years Steve has completely changed the way I feel about guitar and the way I go about practice and preparation, and I intend to build on this with his help. I now enjoy playing far more than I ever realised I could, and I have no hesitation in recommending anyone to seek out Steve's help regardless of their current level, from beginner to long-time player.

A patient and friendly tutor, Steven can teach a vast array of guitar styles. He is able to tailor lessons to the individual in order to focus on the areas that they wish to develop.
I had been playing for many years but had plateaued and was just playing they same riffs over and over. Steven has given me renewed focus and enthusiasm and i have learnt a great deal in a short space of time.
I would recommend Steven to anyone interested in improving their guitar playing. More...
I've been working with Stephen for a couple of months now. I was a complete novice, and Stephen even had to take through the real basics which he did with lots of patience and understanding.
He gets to know you and the types of music you like so he understands what you're trying to achieve. Very very good teacher, i wouldn't consider looking elsewhere.

My 11 year old son Malcolm started having electric guitar lessons with Steve 2 months ago, and started preparing for his Grade 2 Rock School exam.
The progress Malcolm has made since starting these lessons is so amazing that now, two months later, we are thinking of going straight into a Grade 3 exam in 2-3 months, instead.
Steve is a very patient and excellent teacher. Malcolm really enjoys his guitar lessons. I highly recommend Steve. More...
I started guitar classes with Steve in March after a break of several decades. He is excellent at finding the right music to push me(gently) to the next level.
He has a superb range of music that he suggests and when I suggest something he can always produce it. I am really enjoying playing the guitar again, greatly due to his encouragement. I would not hesitate to recommend him as a teacher for all ages. Gerda Bennett

I have been having lessons with stephen for a couple of months now which i very much enjoy . After asking me the type of music i like the lessons then consist of him teaching me two or three songs in that genre which i then practice before my next lesson.
