My name is James Stephens and I’m a guitarist and guitar teacher. I enjoy teaching all ages and a variety of music styles. I’d like to help you achieve your goals whether you are a beginner who wants to enjoy a fun hobby, a serious player wanting to get to the next level or a young student who wants to go on to major in music in college. I have over 20 years of guitar teaching experience and a genuine love of teaching. Guitar lessons are located in Overland Park, Kansas.

James was able to quickly assess my basic skills and enable me with techniques that directly improved my playing at the very beginning. James’s depth and breadth of experience is a great asset to his ability to provide a customized learning experience. I am amazed at how after just a few months my skills have improved so much faster than when I was trying to learn on my own.”
