Student Testimonial

“I’ve always wanted to learn to play the guitar but always lacked someone to motivate me. Anthony has made the journey interesting and is not only teaching me what I want to learn, but also expanding my horizons with styles of music I never would of listened to before. Couldn’t ask for a better instructor!”
Tony Dymock, Deer Park

Why Learn Guitar With a Teacher?

Learning to play guitar through videos and websites online can be great and some people can learn quite a bit on your own, however one on one lessons are really recommended if you want to focus on advancing your guitar playing. Self teaching can lead to bad guitar playing habits that a dedicated teacher can help prevent. Also a guitar teacher can give you the right advice, and planned structured lessons that can help to develop aspects of your playing that need work.

AMEB CPM (Contemporary Popular Music) course repertoire can also be taught and students can be enrolled for AMEB CPM bass exams. The AMEB CPM syllabus covers 4 Advancing Steps which includes technical, set works and free choice pieces (including rock, pop, funk, jazz and latin music), improvising, theory, aural and reading skills. Further detailed information can be found on the AMEB website or by contacting Anthony.

30 or 60 minute minute lessons are held in the suburb of Seddon in Melbourne’s inner west between Yarraville and Footscray and practice material is provided on CD, sheet music and notes.
