Session Guitarist with 30 years experience gives one on one lessons in music studio

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.
Individual lesson plans are tailored to each student and cover areas such as technique, music reading and theory, ear training and songwriting.
As my lessons are held in a professional recording studio, students can also gain skills in music production and recording.

Students that cancel with less than 24 hours notice will be required to pay the full fee

I teach music reading, guitar, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar. For the following level(s): beginner, intermediate, advanced, professional, children, 1st year, 2nd year, 3rd year, 4th year, , .
I give lessons in person, at my home.
I give lessons by Webcam.

Tom's Experience

I've been giving lessons for four years to a small group of students and am now opening up spots for more students. Recently a student of mine has gone on to graduate at the VCA and another student is now playing in the USA as a professional recording musician.
I believe my skill as a teacher is in being responsive to the needs of the student, using my experience as a professional musician to help students achieve their goals.

Tom's CV

I have a graduate certificate in Screen Music from AFTRS and a graduate diploma in Composition from Melbourne University's Conservatorium of Music, both achieved with High Distinctions. I am currently undertaking a Masters in Music (Composition) at the Melbourne Conservatorium.
As a session guitarist I have toured Australia with ARIA award winning artists, played with finalists from The Voice and Australian Idol. I have recorded and produced on over forty albums and EPs in a huge range of styles and genres.
As a Composer I have won awards for my film scores and have written music for some of Australia's highest rating TV shows.
I have a current Working With Children Check.
