I am a session guitarist, music producer and film and TV composer with thirty years experience in the music industry. My guitar lessons are geared towards contemporary playing styles from beginner to advanced. My teaching philosophy is based on finding a balance between learning the technical aspects of music and ensuring that students have fun and enjoy learning how to play the music they like.
Over 20 years experience dealing with students of all ages and personality types. I use both tried and true methods but also recent scientifically proven methods to improve creativity, expression, imagination, muscle memory, balance, analytical thinking, and help with mental disorders and shy personalities.
My lessons are geared towards students of any genre and level as I have experience working in a wide range of settings.
I start everyone off playing simple music in a style they are familiar and engaged in to get them comfortable on their instrument, then use their own personal goals and intentions with the instrument to guide their progression.
We will focus on coordination, music reading scales, speed and chords for improve your groove and feeling. Also we can work on specific songs that you might want to learn and play and we will learn a bit of music theory.
My way of teaching is from my many years of playing shows, practicing, teaching and just being a musician as well. I can identify what problems the individual needs to become more aware of and I create lessons according to what he/she needs to learn to become proficient in that area.

I believe learning the guitar should always be fun. I subscribe to a style of teaching where the student directs the learning based on their interests.
My method is to start with a simple theme, either a rhythm, a chord, a scale and expand it into an original piece of music. Teach students how they can apply these tools to learn & master the guitar. The key is to create achievable goals and focus on these with each lesson.
The lessons are structured to accomodate the individual needs and direction of each student . A plan is made to help each student achieve their goals as effectively as possible, be it live perfromance, audition preparation or basic skill and technique development. I recommend a focus on fundamentals to create a foundation for development.
My teaching methods vary from student to student. I understand the importance of listening skills and empathy when teaching and interacting with the students. I strive to be a clear communicator. I strive to make the learning process to be engaging & fun with activities and getting the student to participate in the lesson, instead of being a passive observer.

I have many years of experience teaching bass, guitar, piano and music theory. Learning music should always be fun, and I focus on working towards goals set by the student, making it as fulfilling and enjoyable as possible. I always make sure all classes are tailored to the individual student's overall wants and needs. I have experience teaching students of all ages.
I focus on the needs of the student. Every student is different and will require a different method to grasp the instrument. There is no one size fits all, and I hope that I can make the experience easy to digest and enjoyable to attend.
Over the past 14 years I’ve spent my time performing and writing in bands including The Getaway Plan and The Amity Affliction. I’ve been lucky enough to perform all around Australia, America, Europe and the UK, playing venues ranging from the Brixton Academy in London to Rod Laver Arena here in Melbourne.
My method is to bring emotions out regardless of what emotion that is and turn that into an audible expression, and how my experience can assist with that process. I base my classes on expressing yourself, being yourself, and inspiring to create.

I am an energetic and passionate individual that loves and lives music. For any beginner to intermediate level peole that are looking for that extra push to pursu music, this is for you.
My approach is student centered. I design lessons to fit the individual needs of each student. This is the main reason I prefer to teach individually, as i can give my full attention to each student. I teach a combination of music theory and technique, but the lessons are flexible.
I put vocal adequacy and capacity as a priority rather than music theory however, I believe that practicing and refining music theory knowledge aids one's true potential and adds to an individuals vocal and creative talent.

Learning guitar is fun. I want to help you learn in the way best suits you. Learn the style you want to learn. Depending on your skill level a typical lesson might be, discussing a song you'd like to learn going over the chords used, having a jam and getting the strumming pattern.
I teach through various methods, depending on what the student wants to learn.
I find it's easier to teach someone if you know what they want, eg: if they only want to play really pretty chords on an acoustic guitar, or if you want to do big screeching solo's like the pro's
I am very passionate about music of all genres (contemporary, rock, funk, etc.) I have taught music theory, practical knowledge, basic skills and song-writing. And from the experience of teaching these years, I think I am a good teacher who can make students feel comfortable and safe, and I love to encourage them so often times my students all progress A LOT within just in a few months.
