Online Instruction

Stephen is now teaching online, via FaceTime. If you have a camera capable computer and a good internet connection, it is possible to arrange a lesson with Stephen regardless of where you are located in the world. A working knowledge of the English language is helpful also, of course.

Please have a clear idea of what you would like to work on with Stephen during the lesson before you contact him. Vague topics are a bit difficult to handle in this way, so the more specific, the better! For example, if you would like to learn one of Stephen’s tunes, that is probably a workable topic. But “I want to learn to play like Stephen” is more difficult. However, many things are possible and if you have a clear idea of what it is you would like to have Stephen’s help with, then contact him for his thoughts about it.

Lessons are $75 (USD) per hour. An extra 15 minutes are also included for establishing the internet connection, greetings, camera placement, sound levels, etc.
