Having grown up in the 70’s, I was fortunate enough to be influenced by guitarists such as Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), Jimmy Hendrix & David Gilmour (Pink Floyd). I purchased my first guitar at 14 and have been strumming ever since! Over the journey, I have performed in several bands, duos and as a soloist.
In 2008 I began teaching guitar at primary schools through a music tuition company; I was given a guitar book and told to teach children through that. Very quickly I realised that this method was boring and did nothing to encourage practise between lessons. It was then I decided to start my own business and spent time researching the best method to keep my students interested. In 2009 I completed a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment with MWT Group.
I now teach at six schools with over 40 private students.
I consider it a privilege to share my love of guitar and music in general, and have found it to be a very rewarding and humbling experience.
