About Me

Hi, I’m Steve Bailey – Kiwi Guitar’s founder, owner and tutor.

If you’re keen to learn how to play guitar, I’m keen to help you discover the world of music and find out where you fit.

I’ve had a long, colourful and fulfilling relationship with music – on the road with various bands across England and Australasia, camped out in recording studios, creating original songs and putting my own spin on quality cover tracks.

From working as a session musician for advertising jingles through to managing my own covers band, ‘Swingshift’, I’ve seen the music industry from all angles and know what it means to make a living as a professional musician.

I started offering guitar lessons for beginners part-time to supplement my income. I taught a few friends for fun, then discovered I really enjoyed teaching.

I’ve worked hard over the years to develop my own musical style, and I’m keen to help new players discover and create their own.
