About

Hello, I offer guitar lessons at my home in East Brunswick. I have over ten years’ experience teaching nylon, acoustic and electric guitar at schools and at home. Along with teaching I’m a working musician and play in a variety of ensembles that perform regularly. My playing and song writing have been favourably reviewed this year in national newspapers The Age and The Australian. My aim as a teacher is to provide a strong grounding in practical technique while also nurturing the personnel musical interests and tastes of students, and giving them the skills to play the music they want to play. Below is a copy of my CV. Kind regards, Nick O'Mara Nick O'Mara Address: 17 Glenmorgan St .
