“Our grandson has taken from Steve at Guitar Instruction of Richardson for several years now. We are always amazed at how much he is learning and how enthusiastic he is about having his lessons.

Recently we’ve been reminded as to the value of lessons and practicing when our grandson secured one of only five available openings at Booker T. Washington High School after auditioning on guitar. We’re all very excited to see him embark on an arts magnet program whose alumni include numerous Grammy Award winners.

Steve is a great mentor for anyone who loves music as well as for those in pursuit of music careers.”

Two thumbs up!”

Steve has a unique gift of making guitar lessons a personal musical journey for each student. He tailors lessons to my son’s choice of music, simplifying when necessary or deftly adding elements to guide his musical progress. The reasonable rates, flexible scheduling and lenient policies are added bonuses.”

–Brian Austin, student and son of Joel and Meg Austin

–Joel and Meg Austin, parents of Brian Austin

“I started lessons with Steve knowing nothing about guitar playing previous to enrolling. The type of instruction I received provided the necessary knowledge and confidence for me to join the music ensemble at my church which I’ve really loved and continue to play with to this day. Thanks for being so patient with me!”

–Daniel Montes, student

“It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial on behalf of Steve whom my son Rory has taken from for several years. Rory’s progress has far exceeded any expectations we had prior to enrolling him as a beginner. Not only does my son voluntarily and eagerly practice on his own, but he’s gained self confidence as well.

Steve imparts his enthusiasm and love of playing onto students and teaches through lessons crafted to the individual. Sensing my son might find graded method books a bit tedious if used exclusively, he engaged and motivated Rory by suggesting he contribute songs of his own choosing as a part of each lesson. By encouraging Rory to become an active part of the teaching process, his interest continues to remain high and consistently looks forward to lessons.

I highly recommend Steve at Guitar Instruction of Richardson and hope others also get the opportunity to experience his contagious passion and love of music first hand.”

–Suzanne Costigan

“I’ve been taking lessons for about two years now and I must say not only have I learned a great deal, but have also had a wonderful time interacting with Steve during classes. In addition to being an excellent teacher, he’s a great person as well.”

–John Poindexter, student

“I’ve been taking from Steve at Guitar Instruction of Richardson and have learned so much. He’s very patient and there’s apparently little that he can’t help you with. Works well with pretty much any playing style. No one in DFW like him.”

–Paul Keller, student

“Lessons with Steve are hands-on individual learning experiences. At first the student learns basic techniques along with easy songs to set the stage for progress as knowledge and abilities grow. My son Frederic really enjoys his lessons, is very comfortable with the teaching style and has made considerable progress since beginning lessons. We look forward to another year.”

–Valerie Chabbert

“Steve has an effective way of incorporating theory and technique while keeping my son Alejandro engaged and interested both in playing and music in general. Alejandro’s been enrolled at Guitar Instruction of Richardson for almost three years and is still loving the classes and continuing to learn.”

–Maries Rey Hipolito

–Anthony Angulo, student

“Steve has been teaching my son for three years now and we couldn’t be happier. My son always looks forward to his lessons, loves practicing and entertains my extended family with his playing during holidays. In addition, we’ve also appreciated the fair tuition rates and flexibility Steve’s shown during rescheduling, both of which have helped during the course of Garret’s lessons.”
