I am a professional guitar tutor and musician with over two decades experience in the industry. I was nominated for best guitarist in the Western Australian Music Industry Awards of 2017 and have performed, taught and conducted workshops in countless venues, bands, genre's, schools, states and countries throughout my career.
I currently teach guitar at some of Perth's premier private schools as well as privately at my home studio in addition to performing on the weekends at numerous venues in Perth and around the country.
My approach to teaching is to equip the student with all the tools necessary to become the best guitarist and musician they are capable of being. So not only will you learn all the best guitar-based tunes of the last century (or whatever songs you like) you will also learn about the nuts and bolts of music through developing aural, technical, and theoretical skills as well.
Area's covered include-
- Learning tunes from numerous styles and genres
- Different technical approaches - legato, rest-stroke picking, fingerstyle, sweeping, strumming styles etc etc
- Lead and rhythm guitar styles
- Aural skills
- Composition and arrangement
- Theoretical studies
- WAAPA audition preparation course also available
I don't believe in a cookie-cutter approach to teaching guitar. I will tailor the lessons to suit the students individual needs. So whether you're a beginner picking up the guitar for the first time or a seasoned pro looking to delve deeper into improvisation and harmonic studies I will be able to help you achieve your goals in the most efficient and enjoyable way!
