Stephan Kane | Classical Guitarist

Private guitar lessons for beginners, intermediate, and advanced players with an experienced, patient, and qualified professional. You will start from the beginning and focus on the fundamental techniques that will equip your fingers to play virtually any style of music with ease.

Stephan believes in a positive and encouraging approach to teaching, one which cultivates an atmosphere of learning and enjoyment while playing the guitar.

Guitar lessons will help you to:

​Learn to read music
Develop effective practice techniques
Gain confidence in your playing and performances
Feel inspired and inspire others
Express yourself artistically

The classical guitar style will be incorporated into our weekly lessons. It is the goal of this first period to supply each student with a foundation of understanding in the classical guitar technique that will allow the student to progress in the musical direction of their choice, whether they wish to continue with classical or integrate popular or folk styles. Each lesson plan is tailored to the individual student.
