Electric & Acoustic Guitar Lessons Brisbane…

Here, you’ll find skillfully-tailored guitar lessons to suit your musical desires and learning style. Lessons are taught from a home-based studio tucked in behind LaTrobe Terrace in Bardon. I coach guitar students to rapidly improve their playing of rock and blues on both electric and acoustic guitar in Brisbane. 

My name is Andrew and I have been teaching guitar for 7 years and playing professionally for 10. Wherever you are at with your guitar journey, experience has shown me that you could almost certainly be growing at a faster rate than you have previously experienced.

Why do you need a guitar coach?

Because you’re human! And as humans, we tend to fall into predictable patterns of behaviour. We tend to look for shortcuts. We get impatient and want to feel a sense of achievement. And we all hate to work on our weaknesses, preferring to strengthen those areas that come quickly to us. Sound familiar?

We all need a coach if we want to learn something properly and efficiently

The Method I use to teach guitar is innovative, fun and a highly effective way to learn guitar as it emphasises learning the physical and conceptual steps in the right order. So many students come to lessons and report to me that their progress over the years has been slow, frustrating or inconsistent. This almost always comes down to an unclear understanding of the stages of progress and a lack of supportive coaching to help them stay on track.

I’m partnered with one of the best drum teachers in Brisbane and the best jazz guitar teacher in Brisbane. Please enquire if you are interested in either modality.

“If there’s ONE thing that I’ve learned from teaching the guitar to over 200 private students, it’s that everyone comes to lessons for their own reasons. One skill that I have identified which sets a good guitar teacher apart is the skill of understanding what a student’s reasons for learning are and for adapting the style of guitar lesson to support those reasons and goals. The other is knowing the order in which skills should be learned.”
