Carolyn Fenn

My son who is 9, has played at being a rock star ever since my mother gave him a toy electric guitar for Christmas. When that broke we decided we would risk buying him a real one. He loved it but couldn't really do much with it and became bored.

Then we found Stephen Murrell through the Sandhurst Directory. He has 25 years experience of teaching youngsters including being a tutor for Berkshire Young Musicians Trust and is employed by Yamaha Music Schools to teach both adult and youth groups.

He teaches all styles, at all levels and all ages. He takes his guitar lessons very seriously but most of all, he likes his lessons to be fun. Amazingly, we still have a cream egg in our fridge from Easter because Steve taught my son to play the National Anthem using the egg to 'slide' across the frets. Nobody is allowed to eat it.

There is no doubt that my son loves his lessons with Steve. It is the one appointment that he is absolutely ready for and, on time! When I go to collect him, I feel as though I am going to have to drag him away as I watch them both engrossed in guitars and music (and chocolate eggs, evidently).

My son has not only gained a lot of confidence from all this but also a lot of 'street cred' with his peers! As for me, whilst I would love to have guitar lessons with Steve I think I'll just invest my money in my son. After all, he has promised to buy me a Porsche when he is famous - move over Elvis.

Steve is a fantastic teacher. He taught My daughter to play and read music from the age of 6 when we lived in Sandhurst. I highly recommend Steve for any level of ability.

"Stephen is a skilled and dedicated guitar teacher and musician. I went to him for guitar lessons and learnt a great deal. He was patient and encouraging when I was struggling to understand some of the music theory and chord construction. I recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their guitar playing, including those who are new to the guitar, as well as those with more experience. Everyone who has guitar lessons with Stephen will benefit from his teaching."

It is without hesitation that I provide a written reference for Stephen Murrell, musician and guitar tutor.

Mr Murrell has been teaching my son classical guitar for 18 months on a weekly basis. During this time Stephen has shown an exceptionally professional approach to teaching, yet with the ability to adapt his teaching style to suit the needs of my son, who, at the age of 8, requires a fun yet structured approach to his lessons. With Stephen's expert tuition Matthew obtained a Merit (85/100) for his grade 1 exam within his first year, a reflection no doubt of the excellent tutoring he received from Stephen.

My son attends Yateley Manor Independent Day School and Stephen came highly recommended to us as a private tutor by several of the parents. Since our son has taken up tuition with Stephen we, likewise, have recommended him to other friends/parents at the school. His professional and pleasant, friendly approach together with his enthusiasm for teaching all styles of guitar (electric, acoustic and classical) make him a highly recommended guitar tutor. All feedback from parents and children, has been most positive and complementary and I have no reservation/hesitation in providing this reference.

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.
