Overview
Biography

Damon Jack Winter, B.Mus.

I have taught hundreds of students in one-on-one private lessons and in group and school settings in Australia, New Zealand and the UK.

My teaching is informed by the many thousands of gig hours I have performed over a multi-decade career. I began as a guitarist and singer in several working original and cover bands while in high school. Since then I have performed as a solo instrumental guitarist at an enormous variety of weddings, corporate and private functions and events all over the world.

My aim, as a guitar teacher, is to transmit the very best of the wisdom and practical advice I received from my teachers as well as offer insights gained from my own lifetime as a working musician.

I majored in classical guitar performance for my Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Auckland. I also studied Flamenco guitar with maestro Gareth Koch at the Conservatorium of Music in Newcastle, NSW.

My degree minor is music education. My second instrument is the flute. Additionally, I received a Diploma in Contemporary Music from JMC Academy in Sydney.

Good teachers matter. I know this from my own experience. I take teaching seriously, but, always keep lessons fun and positive.
