Player reviews

“Good tunes. Several of these songs are standards in the blues world, furthermore, Stefan's arrangements are quite good. They provide a solid version that is fun to play, cool to hear, and not too difficult to learn... The tunes gradually get more difficult, so you do build on the skills you learn.”

Alex O

“Stefan definitely has what could be called great "bedside manner" when it comes to teaching...He is utterly friendly, clear, precise, simple in his approach and very charming to boot. I have sat many times just to watch him play the songs he teaches.”
