Teaching Info

Hi Guitarists!

Lessons open to all ages and skill levels, tailored to each student with an emphasis on developing well rounded skills required to play music both solo and in a group setting.

My aim as a teacher is to make the lesson as informative and engaging as possible, emphasising a thorough understanding of the core elements of playing but doing so in a way that is not a deterrent to learning.

Some areas I like to cover:
Transitioning between chords emphasising rhythm and quality of sound – Right hand technique – Soloing/Improvising – Reading notated music – Rhythm – Tonal production – Learning the fretboard

Lessons are conducted in Brunswick. I hold a valid Working With Children check.
