What People Are Saying

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.
Steve Raleigh is a compassionate person whose teaching methods helped me immensely. He is extremely patient yet has a talent and passion that makes a student want to give 100% in their efforts. - Tim O'Leary
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
Thank you for being such an amazing guitar teacher and showing me what jazz is all about! I am so grateful to have had a teacher who is so kind, patient, and talented. - Camden H., New Paltz, NY
