- tuition in a wide range of contemporary styles available including jazz, blues, rock, pop, country, bluegrass, solo acoustic, R&B soul, funk and more plus Christian Contemporary Worship
- lessons for electric/acoustic, rhythm/ lead, finger-style/flat pick
- personalized lesson plans.
Some of my students have made it into Berklee and GIT – now Musicians Institute (US), different Conservatoriums in Europe and CPIT (NZ) and Parachute artist development programme, as well as started or maintained professional music careers in New Zealand and overseas.
Whether you're a beginner or you're wanting to progress further, students ages 7 and up are welcome. Lessons / lesson plans are tailored to suit the type of music you enjoy and the speed at which you wish to develop (which includes time to study). If you are you looking for a patient, positive and engaged tutor that will personalise each lesson for you or your child, stop looking any further.
While weekly lessons are the general plan, other options are available. Enquire about other options.
