Testimonials

Steve just doesn't "teach guitar". He teaches you guitar. This means he listens and adapts his lessons to "reach" you at a level that allows you to learn and reach whatever goal you set. No drama; no anxiety. You cannot ask for more.Plus - he is a great guitarist and a great guy.  I recommend him highly. - John D.

I have had the great fortune to be Steve’s student for the past ten years.  Every time we get together the hour flies by.  Whether we are studying theory, technique, or particular songs I always come away inspired to practice and try and be better.  Under Steve’s guidance I have become a much better guitarist and I look forward to many more years working with him. - Lewis Brownstein, New Paltz, NY

Steve, I don't think I expressed very well how much I appreciated the lessons I took with you. I really enjoyed your teaching style and how you allowed it to be my journey. I was also grateful for being able to hear you and your friends play while I was living in the area. It is really hard to express my appreciation for your efforts in teaching me the guitar, but the experience has been life changing in many respects and I'm proud to say I was one of your students. While I was on leave I gave a lesson to my niece and I was actual shocked by how much I had learned and was able to explain to her.... Sincerely, Everett

As a career musician, I can say with utmost sincerity that my time studying the guitar with Steve Raleigh has been one of the best decisions I've made. I got stuck at a frustrating plateau when I was trying to improve my ability on my own, and Steve was able to help break me through and broaden my musical horizon. Ever since we began our lessons, I've reinvented myself as a player and have taken advantage of incredible opportunities that I otherwise may not have had the confidence to commit to. Now I'm heading out to Nashville to pursue my musical career with a confident head on my shoulders. Thanks Steve! - Shane Scarazzini
