I teach 1:1 lessons at my home in the Waitakere Ranges 20 mins from Auckland CBD. I teach on Tuesdays and Wednesdays either afternoon (good for homeschoolers, retired or shiftworkers) or in the evening.
I play all styles of acoustic guitar to performance standard. Rhythm, fingerpicking. British and Irish Folk, country, blues, soft rock, jazz, popular, bluegrass.
Instrumental style played on nylon stringed guitar. I’ll teach you to read music and play some beautiful pieces.
