When award-winning guitarist Steven Law represented Hong Kong as one of the only thirteen people invited to join the 2013 International Finger-Style Guitar Festival, the opportunity opened to make a career as a touring concert performer. Instead, however, he has decided to limit his performing schedule to focus on education and arrangement. In his Hong Kong studio Steven teaches playing technique, and uses his collection of fine guitars and tools to help people understand the deep connection between the guitar’s structure and its musical sound.
He’s also a member of a new breed of musical star who connect with fans directly through the Internet. His hundreds of guitar videos often feature tunes from modern pop songs and anime, and have been freely shared millions of times by grateful fans all over the world. “You’re such a generous guy to not just show your skills, but to also share your talent, transcriptions and lessons!” is a typical comment.
Why bring his classical talents to this very un-classical repertoire?
“I enjoy arranging tunes which no one has played on guitar before and making them available to the guitar world. I want to make it easier for beginners to get into guitar and that’s the music they hear and they want to play” says Steven.
