Are you looking for quality guitar lessons at an affordable price? Well you’ve come to the right place 🙂

My name is Dan Pennington and I’m a highly qualified and professional guitarist with over 25 years of performing and teaching experience. I also hold an Advanced Diploma in Music Performance.

I am offering both:

– Mobile guitar lessons where I come to you

– Lessons from my own home in Reservoir

Whichever is most suitable for you!

Over the years I have taught hundreds of students of all ages (from 4 to 65) and skill levels (absolute beginner to advanced) on both acoustic and electric guitar.

I have prepared many students for ANZCA practical and theory exams, VCE music exams and tertiary entrance auditions for such universities as VCA and Melbourne Polytechnic. But I also absolutely cater to the complete beginner looking to have their very first lesson ever.

As well as my private lessons I have also taught at the following:

  • Music studios including: Paladino Dance Music & Drama school, Wendy’s music
  • Primary schools including: Ivanhoe East, Yarrambat, Romsey
  • Secondary Colleges including: St Albans, Werribee, Maribyrnong

As a live performer I have played in a variety of bands, duos, ensembles for over 25 years. I have played hundreds of gigs at pubs, bars, weddings, corporate events, birthdays etc. I am currently in the cover band “Brightside Duo” which I formed in 2009.

I also have a guitar instructional youtube channel called PlayLicksNow where I upload my own original jam tracks and primarily teach lead guitar lick lessons.
Search for PlayLicksNow on Youtube to check it out.

So whether you are an experienced player looking to brush up on their skills or a brand new student of the guitar looking to have their first lesson ever, please don’t hesitage to contact me and start your guitar journey today!

Absolute beginners welcome!

Teaching Info

Want to learn guitar from the comfort of you own home?  I will come to you!  (within approx 10 minutes of my location)

Or if you prefer, I offer lessons in the relaxed and comfortable environment of my home in Reservoir.

I am a very patient and diligent teacher who focuses on customizing lessons based on the skill level and goals of each individual student rather than using a “one-size-fits-all” approach.
