Perth is one of the most culturally rich and diverse metropolises in Australia.

From music, and dance to entertainment and sport, Perth has long since cultivated its relationship to the arts, and both tourists and residents alike benefit from the year-round cycle of festivals,  performances, events, and games.  

Perths relationship with music is deeply entrenched in the soul of the city, with homegrown artists like Tame Impala, Birds of Tokyo, and Eskimo Joe going on to become internationally acclaimed. 

But what do each of these groups and artists have in common?

They all have great guitar players of course!

These musicians got started playing the guitar right here in the city of Perth. They took lessons and practiced rock music, classical music theory, and jazz and pop songs.

Each one strove to improve in their guitar classes, so as to improve their level of competence with the amazing instrument that is the guitar. 

If you've ever thought about learning to play the guitar, and all that sounds too out-of-reach for you, we're here to tell you that it isn't.

Even Jimi Hendrix lived days in his life where he didn't know how to play a single note or chord on the guitar. 

Now, we're not saying you'll go on to become the next Hendrix (Tash Sultana has already claimed that spot), but we are saying that if you apply yourself to learning the guitar, you're sure to achieve a level of competence where playing one is an enjoyable, comfortable and impressive activity.
