At its most fundamental level, guitar playing is a physical skill, so instead of teaching scales and the boring stuff, we start off learning easy riffs or sections from rock and pop tunes. The ultimate aim may be to become a concert classical guitarist, but we begin by focusing on just playing.
I'm a guitarist, composer, teacher, spoon carver and experimental instrument maker who has been teaching a range of guitar styles for over 20 years. I've been a busker, choir singer, rock bassist, crap drummer and musical director for theatre, graduating with a degree in music composition from the University of Tasmania in 2017.
Lessons usually run in 30 minute units at $33 per lesson per week ($66 per hour). I send out term invoices which you can pay directly into my bank account.

Having had Joel as both a teacher and a playing partner, and for that matter close friend and mentor, Joel really cares about his students. His musicianship and knowledge of all genres of music are incredible, and his methods of teaching always were very concise and enabled the student to understand and apply concepts that were being discussed. I would highly recommend Joel to anyone wanting to further their playing
Joel is a fine musician. I've performed with him and seen him working as a soloist. Joel is gentle and encouraging. He is also great company and I'd recommend him to any parent of an aspiring player.
