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 a natural setting directly 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. I am also increasingly teaching via Zoom and/or Skype to students in other parts of the world.

My name is Andrew and I have been teaching guitar for 6 years and playing professionally for 8. 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?

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?

The truth is: we all need a coach if we want to learn something properly and efficiently.

Learning the guitar is a delicate process, one with many areas in which it is possible to develop bad habits. It can also be frustrating. Believe me, I know.

Still, I have seen so many people thrive under proper guidance, slowly becoming the players that they have wanted to become (sometimes for their whole lives).

I’m confident you can do exactly the same.

I offer specialist guitar tuition for beginners to advanced guitar players in:

Contemporary / Rock Guitar

Electric and acoustic styles and techniques covering the majority of student interests. From improvising solos like John Mayer to strumming out the pub classics and everything in between

Blues Guitar Lessons

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.

You may also want to have a read of the most common questions I hear from students learning guitar that I have encountered over the years plus the methods that we use to overcome these common difficulties.

“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.”
