New to Reservoir!

After more than 11 years teaching guitar in Brunswick, I've moved to Reservoir! Situated in a beautiful & peaceful area – close to parklands, Darebin Creek, Bundoora Park, and La Trobe University – right on the borders of Bundoora & Kingsbury and close to Preston, Heidelberg West & Thomastown – the perfect place to learn and play guitar!

Play the songs you love!

I've been playing guitar and piano for 38 years – playing music really is one of the major loves of my life! I have enjoyed playing many different styles, performing on guitar and piano, and writing and recording my own songs, and I draw on this long and broad experience in my guitar teaching, and my general music and theory teaching.

AMEB-Qualified Teacher

AMEB exam preparation is also available and you can learn music theory – how music works! I teach all ages, from kids to adults, and accordingly I offer a range of lesson lengths. I hold a current Working With Children Check (WWCC).

Tailor-made Lessons

My guitar lessons focus on the songs that you want to play: whether it's the latest songs, pop/rock or top–40, classic rock, or anything from folk, fingerpicking, country and flatpicking, to hard rock and metal – I can teach you, on acoustic or electric! My students range from primary school & high school children – beginners and those developing their talents – to adults who are beginners, or rediscovering a love of playing guitar and a whole world of music! Turn your dream of playing guitar into reality – it really is great fun to play!

New Teaching Area

Historically my guitar students have come from many parts of the inner north of Melbourne – now I've moved north to Reservoir and available to take students from Reservoir and the surrounding northern suburbs: Bundoora, Kingsbury, Preston, Heidelberg West, Coburg North, Fawkner, and Thomastown.
