Stuck in a rut with your playing? Want to try a new modern style of guitar playing? Want to play your favourite tunes from Michael Jackson to Ed Sheeran but don’t know where to begin? Could this monologue BE anymore cheesier?  With over 15 years of experience, Brian Zhang’s Fingerstyle Guitar School offers a new and modern approach to playing and learning the guitar that is suitable for all players regardless of age, gender, cultural background or level of experience. Whether you are looking to improve your technique, expand on your current repertoire, go in a new direction with your playing, or even if you’re just starting out and wanting to work out what you want to focus on, “Fingerstyle Guitar” will completely change the way that you not only view how the guitar is played, but your entire perspective on music. Through a mixture of one on one private lessons, group workshops, collaborative live performances, and online lessons, Brian Zhang’s Fingerstyle Guitar School is on a journey to empower infinite musical possibilities amongst their students and the wider community.

If you’re looking for a guitar teacher and mentor that really cares about his students, look no further. I’ve been with Brian for 2 years now and not only have I really enjoyed learning how to play the guitar, I’ve also learnt lessons beyond music from him. He really is an incredible human being with a passion for teaching and playing guitar!
