Student Testimonial

"After Jaydens first lesson, he got into the car and said' I have just learnt more in that one lesson than I learnt the whole time at school lessons'. Mum was very pleased.

Anthony has proven himself to be professional, trustworthy, knowledgeable and passionate musician. My son actually practices. I recommend Anthony as a teacher."
Indre Kisonas, Williamstown

June 2012 Student Concert

The June 2012 Student Concert at Tonik Bar in Kensington was a great success with guitar and bass players of all ages and levels getting up and playing. It was a great experience giving students the opportunity to play in front of family and friends in a supportive environment. Thanks to all bass and guitar students for playing and practicing so well to get their songs and pieces up to scratch. Also thanks to their friends and family who came and supported them in the audience.

The aim of the concert is to give students the chance to perform live which is a main goal for all musicians. For beginners it can be a scary step to play in front of an audience but for those who had the courage to do so the rewards were a great sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. Songs and pieces were chosen to be within studentís skill level. So if a guitar student could only play a handful of chords thatís all they were asked to play.

These songs were performed with my partner Rachael singing which enable the whole song to be played which many beginner guitarists (and even more advanced players) never get the chance to do. It was good to get students who had never played with anyone before the chance to play with a singer through an entire song.

Bass students were also paired with guitar students of a similar level to perform songs together including Stand By Me, Wild Thing and Scar by Missy Higgins. This was an especially valuable experience for the beginner bass students to be able to play with a guitarist and a singer as it gave them a taste of playing in a band.

Here’s a list of some of the songs and pieces performed by the 18 guitar and bass students. This included a few duos where students got to play together too.
