The Power of Learning Guitar

Learning to play the guitar is a healthy, empowering experience. Once learnt, it's a skill for life. And it's yours! Nobody can take it away.

 

All the world can go mad, but your musical journey belongs to you. Forever.

It's also becoming increasingly difficult for young people to express themselves in healthy ways. The guitar helps us to discover and love who we are at any stage in life.

Some of my students are young, exploring music for the first time. Some are retired, looking to brush up their skills. And some are parents, and their guitar lesson is their time for them. 

The right time to learn is whenever you want to start.

 

Learning to put a song together and play it on your guitar is a therapy that can change the course of your life, as many a guitarist will attest.

So, it is my absolute privilege to facilitate this experience for my students.

As my first guitar teacher said to me "I don't teach people how to play guitar, I teach them how to teach themselves". This has become my mantra also.

My approach is to teach and inspire you to take control of your own learning experience so that you can continue to learn for the rest of your life.
