Bio

I’ve been teaching guitar for a number of years and have been based in the Eastern Suburbs Area for the past year.

I’m 19 and am currently studying a Bachelor of Music (Contemporary Music) at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. I specialise in contemporary styles of music – rock and pop – but also have lot’s of experience playing different styles like jazz, funk and reggae. I have played in bands most of my life and have played many big concerts and festivals, including supporting bands such as Skegss, Hockey Dad, Tash Sultana and Tired Lion.

I can help you learn the basics of guitar or refine your already developed skills, I’m also a songwriter and have had songs that I’ve written in the top 10 of the Triple J Unearthed Charts – I can help you with compositional ideas too, lyrics or music composition. I completed the HSC Music course last year, received a mark of 96 and have since helped tutor people and prepare them for their exam and performances (I’ve been playing for older people’s HSC exams for the last 10 years though, I know what happens in there…)

I am flexible in how lessons work, I can either come to your house (rates may be increased depending on travel distance) or you can meet me at mine (I set up a temporary studio in my living room for lessons, equipped with amps, pedals and guitars for you to borrow for the lesson if you require!).

Really look forward to hearing from you!


Teaching Info

I can teach in a variety of styles depending on what each student is after.

If you want to learn the basics of reading music I can organise lessons which are theory based and show you how to apply music theory to guitar.

If you just want to learn to play your favourite songs on the radio, I can show you how to read chord charts, play from ear and contemporary styles of playing guitar.

If you want to develop your improvisation skills we can work on that too, I’ve played tons of blues style gigs and can definitely teach you some tricks to develop your solo chops!

So depending on what you want to get out of your guitar lessons I can develop lesson plans specific to you! (I’m not going to force you to do hours of  classical harmonic analysis, no matter how much I enjoy it!)
