The lessons are structured to accomodate the individual needs and direction of each student . A plan is made to help each student achieve their goals as effectively as possible, be it live perfromance, audition preparation or basic skill and technique development. I recommend a focus on fundamentals to create a foundation for development.
Over the past 14 years I’ve spent my time performing and writing in bands including The Getaway Plan and The Amity Affliction. I’ve been lucky enough to perform all around Australia, America, Europe and the UK, playing venues ranging from the Brixton Academy in London to Rod Laver Arena here in Melbourne.
Are you completely new to guitar and want to have your first lesson? Are you an experienced player looking to advance your skills? Well look no further, you've come to the right place! I have prepared many students for ANZCA practical and theory exams, VCE music exams and tertiary entrance auditions for such universities as VCA and Melbourne Polytechnic.
I tend to be more practical, less of theory. Music should be fun and enjoyable. Hence, I usually expose students immediately to songs that are applicable and relatable to make learning enjoyable. I believe their knowledge and skills improve better when we play songs straight away.
Learning guitar is fun. I want to help you learn in the way best suits you. Learn the style you want to learn. Depending on your skill level a typical lesson might be, discussing a song you'd like to learn going over the chords used, having a jam and getting the strumming pattern.
My teaching method is teaching the person the basics in the beginning then letting that person develop his skills through practice. No rush is needed when wanting to learn something. The person learns at his own pace and then each time one level is achieved, I move on to the next level.
I have taught from the AMEB, CPM, ANZCA Modern, Classical and Rock syllabi. My students have all achieved outstanding grades whilst also learning a great deal of free choice repertoire.My focus is on music theory, various warm up exercises,aural tests,sight reading exercises, scales,chords, picking exercises,improvisation and rhythm structure.

Lessons are available at my home in Princes Hill. I am Experienced teaching a wide age range from small children to retirees. I Teach Classical and Contemporary guitar and Music Theory Please don’t hesitate to contact me for further information.
I believe in understanding a students needs and requirements and my lessons are based on what the student wants to learn. I believe a solid foundation in music theory is essential for students to understand music and be able to move forward in their learning.
Most lessons will go like this: First, we'll just talk, just chatting for a bit. Then, we'll do warm ups and tuning, then we'll probably either learn something new in the endless mystery that is music, or we'll play a game or song, either way we will end up doing both. At this stage we'll probably talk about musical tastes, and maybe individual tunes from songs that you know.
My teaching methodology varies according to age, experience level and overall personality of the student. When teaching children, lessons should focus on what music is (rythm and harmony) and on what music they enjoy and why. When teaching initial level students, I'll focus on learning the specifics of guitar and developing a refined understanding of music.

DONE Want to learn the theory behind music and how it all works? DONE Want to just talk about music? DONE I am passionate about making YOUR dreams come true. I've played all my life and am competent in a lot of different genres.
My teaching method is based on learning all the basic chords and simple strumming patterns that will allow you to quickly start playing along with your favorite songs. My lessons are geared towards beginners who want to learn but never made the step forward.
All the information provided to the student is what they would use in a real stage/studio situation. That includes the guitar technique, music theory, repertoire according to student’s tendencies, breathing, relaxing, pschological frame of mind, relationship with the band members and the audience.
My method includes lessons of variable duration but high intensity, where we try to get to the bottom of the topic by understanding its essence.
As a composer I try to impart the rewarding songwriting technique of Counterpoint to my students. I also get my students to understand the chord progressions and scales used within the pieces they like to learn. I encourage a strong focus on the music of The Beatles as well as other 60's and 70's band.
First I teach the basic accords to play. Those are the key elements to start learning to play. When you learned how to play a couple of songs I will start to teach you different ways to play, different genres and techniques.
My method is to start with a simple theme, either a rhythm, a chord, a scale and expand it into an original piece of music. Teach students how they can apply these tools to learn & master the guitar. The key is to create achievable goals and focus on these with each lesson.
- RHYTHM GUITAR (various types of accompaniment) - LEAD GUITAR (lead parts, melody, soloing/improvisation) - PLECTRUM and FINGER-PICKING techniques for Songs, etc - CHORDS, SCALES, FINGERBOARD knowledge, MUSIC THEORY - developing RHYTHM, reading MUSICAL or TABLATURE NOTATION - and many other useful skills Hi, my name is Tim, and I can help you develop your musical, creative and expressive...
My approach is student centered. I design lessons to fit the individual needs of each student. This is the main reason I prefer to teach individually, as i can give my full attention to each student. I teach a combination of music theory and technique, but the lessons are flexible.

My methodology for teaching is to create a fun and no pressure environment but also assure the student that each lesson is a step in the right direction for their musical journey, making music accessible for everyone is my greatest goal as I believe that anyone can play any instrument to any level as long as they put their mind to it and keep that passion in mind the whole time with small goals...
