Sam’s guitar lessons are personally tailored to suit each and every student and can cover a variety of areas. Whatever style of music you’re interested in, Sam can help you to achieve your goals. Lessons are prepared and structured so that each student gets the most out of their lesson time. If you want forget about theory and simply learn your favourite riffs and chord progressions, that’s fine, if you want to study advanced theoretical concepts and compositional techniques, that’s okay too. Tuition is available to students 8 yrs and above and all abilities. Whether you’re a hobbyist, semi-professional musician, applying for music academy/university, or preparing for formal exams (AMEB etc.), Sam can provide you with the tuition you need. Unlike many music schools, where lessons are conducted in cramped, dingy, rooms, Sam’s private studio is clean, spacious and comfortable, and you don’t have to put up with a drummer banging on the other side of the wall while you try to focus.
