Simon Morel

Friendly and fun guitar lessons with patient and teacher with over 25 years teaching experience.

I design individual learning programs personalized to your needs, so you can learn your favourite songs at your own pace. Just nominate the songs you want to learn and we’ll work through them together week by week.

Along the way we’ll learn new chords, song structures and styles of playing by learning the songs you love.

For all the songs learnt you’ll receive clear and concise instructions detailing exactly how to play your songs. You’re welcome to audio record or video record the lesson to help you out at home and if you get stuck at any point in between lessons I’m happy to provide tips on how to get back on track at any time.

I’ve been playing the guitar for 30 years and have played at venues throughout Australia, Japan and Europe. In Australia, I’ve played at all sorts of venues from The Basement to the Vanguard, The Annandale to The Hopetoun and The Opera Bar to the Hilton’s Marble Bar.

Gift vouchers are available and I’m happy to teach groups of up to 3 if you would like to learn in a group environment.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to give me a call on 0404 267 623 or email me at

Hear from you soon,
All the best!

“I was self taught in guitar and only played for personal enjoyment. I have been having guitar lessons for only a short while. Simon very quickly assessed what level of skill I was at, and adapted his lessons for me accordingly. He has shown me the basics of guitar and the structure of notes and chords, as well as giving me songs to play that I enjoy. This has given me a better understanding of what I was missing in my playing. Simon has made me feel comfortable in the lessons and I have no hesitation in recommending him as a musician and teacher.”

“I’ve been learning to play the guitar for the last 4 months under the tuition of Simon Morel. Not only am I learning how to play my favourite songs, but I’m also enjoying it immensely. Simon’s nurturing approach certainly creates an easy to understand learning environment. I thought it would be a lot harder to learn how to play… especially at my age (48).”

“I started taking lessons at the start of this year as an adult, without any prior experience or training. Today after only six months of lessons I can play several songs and eagerly await each lesson. Simon is a teacher of the highest calibre, who demonstrates considerable commitment to his students. I find that Simon teaches guitar in a way that keeps things simple to understand and easy to learn. He is able write down guitar tabs for most of my favourite songs after listening to them only once. This ability constantly amazes me. Simon’s methodology is comprehensive and engaging and combined with his guidance and encouragement I would recommend him highly to any prospective student”

“I started as a complete beginner with interest but also fear of the guitar. After about 6 weeks I am now able to play along to Radiohead and get some sounds out of the guitar which actually sound quite good!! Simon's approach to teaching has been awesome and in addition to teaching me the technical knowledge required, I have been able to learn songs I love which is what I ultimately want. The charts and information have been a massive help as they are easy to understand and follow. I have found the initial stages of learning to be fun and I am now completely addicted and no longer afraid of the guitar. This is thanks to a very passionate teacher. Thanks Simon.”

“Simon has a real knack for combining the boring (yet essential) theory with what essentially why you are there - to learn to play your favourite songs. Only in time have I realised how empowering this approach is - because it keeps you enthusiastic whilst also ensuring that you are learning the necessary theory to learn sustainably. This is important to me - as I feel like I am moving (albeit slowly!) to a point where I will be able to learn songs independently.

Simon is an excellent communicator and obviously a special music talent. This essentially makes the lessons a pleasure to be involved in - you really feel like you are learning from a pro!”

“I'm really enjoying the lessons and learning a lot, it's very easy to get along with Simon and he knows his stuff.. I would recommend to him to anyone.”


“I’m thinking guitars might catch on…”

I’ve released two solo albums, played on a number of other artist’s albums, play guitar in Soul Messengers and continue to play live shows across Sydney.

I’ve played all over the world in Europe, Asia and at heaps of Aussie venues. I work as a session guitarist, run a YouTube guitar channel, teach guitar lessons at my Leichhardt studio and design guitar inspired T-Shirts at Guitarmony. When that’s all done I write an irregular blog; SimonLovesGuitars.
