Neil Kelly

  • B.A.(Hons) (Music)

Hi & welcome to Neil Kelly Music. I teach students of all ages and standards. I love to play guitar/bass in a wide range of styles. Adult beginners/refreshers welcome! For more details check my website.

Teaching experience:
I was a full-time lecturer in music at Latrobe University for over 10 years and have taught privately since 2001. I have 40 years experience as a professional performer, composer, recording musician/producer and part-time instrumental teacher. I have a well equipped home teaching/composition studio and a professional recording studio (also in Abbotsford) for students interested in developing this aspect of their music. I can teach AMEB in guitar, theory and composition and also tutor tertiary music students. However, I am very happy teaching committed beginners.

Experience as a Musician:
Bands/artists played with include Bo Diddley, Le Club Foote, Lucie Thorne, many international tours with Slave Pianos, Missiles, Z-Cars, and studio session work as guitarist and bass player (& ukulele, mandolin, banjo, etc). I've produced recordings by many local artists including Yi-Lynn, The Sockettes, Sex on Toast, Adi Sappir & Herr Hauptmann.

My goal is to bring out the best in the music student & to share the joy of music making.

I am now teaching both at my studio in Abbotsford and my home in Ivanhoe. Feel free to call or text and we can work out a plan that's right for you.
