GUITAR & BASS & UKULELE LESSONS 

I'm offering online one on one lessons  through Skype or Zoom. And in person lessons at your home

Learn how to play guitar, uke or Bass....Without learning stuff you don't need to know.

**LESSONS WITH A DIFFERENCE** 

**MY LESSONS ARE KINDA LIKE AN APPRENTICE LEARNING A TRADE** 

I'm not just another guy that has learnt an instrument or done a diploma in music and then becomes a teacher with no experience outside the classroom.

I am a professional gigging musician playing about 160 shows each year and also with 10 years teaching experience...

My lessons teach from beginner skills to advanced skills in guitar or bass. I can also teach you the steps needed to sustain a living from playing music in a competitive industry.

The Lessons...

We work out goals together that you would like to reach and put the steps in place for you to reach them... The choice is yours.

My lessons are usually broken up into 3 sections.

*Technique and fretboard knowledge.
* A song of your choice that you'd like to learn.
*A song we choose together to improve your playing skill.
*[School age students I recommend we also work on rudimentary reading skills]

Some of the skills I’ll be teaching on the guitar;

*Fingerboard mastery.

*Finger picking.

*Chords [Expanding so they sound special]

*Foundation work for you to create on the guitar.

*Percussive Techniques.

*How to make the guitar groove.

*Right hand technique and independence.

*Improvised bass lines within your acoustic arrangements.

*Freedom for improvised solos during your songs.

*Repertoire building to your strengths.

*How to create light and shade within arrangements.

*Arranging songs to suit your vocal abilities.

*Song arrangement for the solo player.

*Song writing tools and development.

*Song writing accompaniment skills.

*Mastering Live acoustic sound.

*Recording technique especially for acoustic guitar and vocals.

* Tricks to playing complicated riffs and singing at the same time. 

The lessons via Zoom are one on one and length can be either 30 or 60 minutes long. Weekly or Fortnightly. I often find for the advanced student covering a couple of different topics thoroughly in 30 minutes can be difficult.

The first lesson is an introductory price of $20 for 30min.

Casual lessons after the first are $25 for 30mins.
 

The in person lessons at your home are a minimum of 1 hour lesson for $60 per hour.[Illawarra, Nowra & Southern Highlands]
