This is how 3 referees rated Steve:
Hi, I started to learn the guitar at the age of 10 when an Uncle taught me some Johnny Cash tunes. At 12 I studied Classical guitar and at 15 I was playing professionally with a 24 piece Big Band twice a week at Cheltenham Town Hall.
At 18 I formed a Punk band and made records with DJM records and at 20 I had a major deal with CBS Records. I recorded with some top name producers and toured extensively throughout the UK and Europe.
Other bands followed throughout the 80's and 90's resulting in recording and touring.
I still play with two bands now, if it's in your blood…
I started teaching at the end of the 90's so I've been teaching for around 15 years. I have no qualifications but what I do have is experience in abundance (40 years) of playing and working with some top quality people in the music industry. To give you one example… making an album with legendary record producer Tony Visconti where the experience was absolutely priceless.
I can play most styles and so I'm very adaptable. I'll first find out what the student wants to play and we'll go from there. If I think that something is being overlooked then I'll say so. In the case of a very young student then the important thing is to keep them interested. In general I don't do grades, I see little point in this unless it's for classical guitar. There are so many varying styles that a modern guitarist should try and be a good all round player.
I can teach country, pop, classic rock, folk, jazz, and maybe some entry level Classical.
As the main songwriter for most of my ex bands I can help students with song composition.
N.B. I also have vast reservoirs of patience!
