25 years experience of teaching youngsters

25 years experience of teaching youngsters

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.
