Classical guitar lessons in Lindfield, Sydney, or I can come to you.

About the lesson

I use the Suzuki method for teaching children, but include my own repertoire of music to keep it interesting and fun. For adults, it's more of a guitar for fun approach.
Lessons are usually half an hour.
I have time slots during the day as well as evenings and Sundays.
