  • At the age of 66 years having spent my working life in the teaching profession (Headteacher and Ofsted Inspector) I decided to become the learner and try to play the guitar. So four years ago I chose my teacher very carefully, Steve Cassidy. I can report that he has proved to be an excellent teacher. He has shown skill and remarkable patience in his approach. He has a range of teaching styles that encourage development and this helps the student to gain confidence and enjoyment.
    I am happily continuing on my music journey with Steve. - DR

  • Steve Cassidy has taught my daughter guitar for 2 years. Steve is a natural teacher: patient, a good communicator and well informed. My daughter enjoys the challenge and the support that he provides, enabling her to make progression through the grades feel fun and undaunting. I would recommend Steve to anyone interested in learning guitar. – GW (School Teacher)

  • My daughter has progressed extremely well since she started guitar lessons with Steve. Steve has a relaxed approach which has given my daughter the confidence she needs to learn at her own pace. She has discovered a talent for music which over time has steadily grown. When my daughter decided she wanted to play the electric guitar Steve was fantastic in helping us purchase an electric guitar and amp. He also let my daughter try various guitars of his to find out which one suited her best. – TA

  • ‘My son always looks forward to his guitar lessons. Steve is a great encouragement, making the lessons fun and always giving a variety of different music to do each week, which encourages practice in between lessons. I would not hesitate to recommend Steve as a guitar teacher, where every pupil is seen as individual and their lessons conducted accordingly. Thank you Steve’. - SB
