Hi there,

I teach guitar and bass guitar with over 15 years experience teaching to all ages and abilities. I currently teach at Directions In Music in Kensington and I have previously taught at The Australian Institute of Music in Surry Hills. I teach all styles of music and adopt a student focused approach. You learn what you want to learn the way you like to learn! I have more than 20 students I see each week. I teach at my flat in Coogee and I also travel to students who live in the local area (within 5 k’s). I have spots available before school/work and after school/work throughout the week. From time to time weekend slots will open up as well. Please see my website or get in touch for more info.

Best regards,

Martin

Subject

Guitar and Bass Tuition

I offer student focused lessons in a fun and relaxed setting. I use well known songs, as well as songs chosen by the student, to learn new concepts and styles. Beginners lessons will involve learning simple guitar chords over well known pop songs and gradually we will take on more complex styles and concepts. The goal is to keep you inspired and having fun learning the guitar!

Music Theory and Music 1 & 2 Tuition

I also offer music theory tuition to students of all level, from school work, to HSC preparation, and tertiary studies. I cover any areas that the student need help with within the contemporary or classical areas of study.

As adults, wether we know it or not, we have many years of music education up our sleeve. All the music you have listened to in your life has been processed by your mind and body. Whether you are into Folk, Blues, Rock, Pop, Alternative, or Jazz, I aim to make sure that you learn the music you love. This philosophy is at the heart of my teaching approach. As much as I love to delve into theory, scales, and technique study, I generally keep these less inspirational topics in the background. At the end of the day it is how I manage to inspire each student that determines his/her success learning.
