Individual Lessons

Individual guitar lessons are the quickest way to learn with the best results. They are one hour long and can be taken weekly or fortnightly.

Where Do We Start?

We start with whatever skill you already have and build on that. Beginners start with the basics: forming chords, playing open shuffles, strumming, picking and the key principles of music.

As students advance we introduce more guitar theory into the lessons and develop skills such as constructing solos around scales, playing the bar chord shuffle, blues licks, finger picking, open tunings and playing the slide.

How Much Practice Time Will You Need?

The pace of individual learning is largely up to the student and determined by how much time you are able to spend practising each week. The recommended amount of practice time needed is around 15 minutes per day, 5 days a week.

How Are The Guitar Lessons Structured?

The first half of the lesson is spent on theory, playing technique and the blues. The remainder is spent putting the theory in to practice by playing songs.

How Do You Make Progress?

At the end of each lesson you are given a list of tasks to work on before the next lesson. Learning is done in a logical progression, building on the skills you have previously studied.

How Much Do The Lessons Cost?

Lessons cost $80 per session. This includes the teacher coming to your house, an hour long lesson and all the course materials. We offer guitar lessons Melbourne wide, servicing areas within a 15km (approximately) radius of the CBD.
