Welcome to my site “Bathurst Guitar Lessons”

If you are in the Bathurst area and looking to learn guitar, you have come to the right place!

It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, a total beginner or know a few chords, I can help you become a good guitarist.

I am a qualified teacher (DipTeachCSU) and have years of professional playing and guitar teaching experience.

What & How I Teach

Lessons are on a one-to-one basis as this ensures more efficient learning in a manner totally tailored to your needs.

There are no contracts to sign, simply pay as you go. No cancellation fees etc. (I understand things crop up occasionally & students can’t attend).

The lessons are given in a very relaxed & enjoyable environment.

I supply all that is needed such as chord diagrams, audio of songs, charts etc.

All you need is a guitar & the desire to learn.

I teach anything & everything to do with guitar playing from the very basics though to exotic chords, solos, rhythm, improvisation, etc. I teach Blues, Rock, Country, Pop etc.

My aim is to teach you in a manner that enables you to understand what & how to play, and also in a way that you can apply what I teach to enable you to progress beyond our time together.

Here are some of the topics covered:

  • What chords to play
  • Open chords & barre chords

  • Tablature & music notation
  • The notes in music
  • How to improvise
