Hello, my name is Geordan. I am a passionate guitarist/ composer/ teacher with 15 years of experience. I completed a Bachelor of Music Performance focusing on Jazz guitar at Monash University in 2014, and I have been teaching professionally for a number of years. I specialise in teaching Jazz, Prog Rock and Heavy Metal but am also well versed in Blues, Funk and Pop styles. I am willing and able to mentor VCE Music students, adolescents and adults.
I tailor my lessons to suit individual needs and interests in order to make the experience as fun and engaging as possible, whilst also encouraging healthy practice routines and a sense of discipline. Regardless of whether you want to pursue a career in music or are just playing casually I am certain I can be of assistance.
Regardless of the style(s) a student may want to learn, I place a great emphasis on learning correct and efficient technique. For plectrum players I cover correct right hand picking technique, whether the preference be alternate, economy or hybrid picking. For speed freaks I have plenty of effective speed picking exercises I can show you to get your chops up. I can also teach finger style guitar, music theory, composition/ arranging and improvisation.
I am based in Burwood, but am currently conducting lessons at student’s houses.
