Aydin is a really great teacher. He has extremely good playing technique and is able to pick up on a lot of ways in which your playing technique can improve. He's also got a very good knowledge of music theory and explains really well how it works and how all the parts relate to each other in a way that makes a lot of sense. I'd strongly recommend Aydin for anyone wanting to improve their music theory or playing technique.
Coen has been teaching my daughters guitar for almost 2 years. During this time he has shown himself to be extremely reliable, focused and has great rapport with his students. His knowledge of music is very diverse and has meant the girls are not only learning how to play the guitar but also appreciate the different music genres.
He is a likeable and pleasant young man and I would definitely recommend him as a teacher and mentor.
I have been working with Christian for over 5 years, I have dramatically increased my bass playing ability over this time and I look forward to continuing our work over my bass journey.
One my favorite things about working with Christian is how much he cares, he cares about music and his student's progression, I highly recommend Christian's lessons to anyone looking to progress on their instrument of choice as Christian plays many!
My son was happy with the lesson and has decided to continue going forward. Ethan was friendly, informative and helpful with his advice to Ryan. Ryan had been having trouble playing chords properly and Ethan helped him fix that.
I would highly recommend James as a skilled and professional guitar teacher. He has been instructing my son for a year and a half, and we couldn't be happier with his teaching. James has a remarkable ability to engage my son during their sessions, and as a result, my son's passion for playing the guitar has flourished. He spends hours practicing after each lesson and has developed an impressive repertoire of songs and skills. Recently, he even achieved an A in his school report for music, which speaks volumes about James' effectiveness as a teacher. We greatly appreciate James' expertise and unwavering dedication to my son's musical development. If you're in search of a talented and committed guitar teacher, look no further than James.
How do you take a 62 year old from having a dream to play to guitar with absolutely no experience, and motivate them to have a go and commence what is a magical musical journey? Well, you meet Luca Pipino and he will help you achieve things you never thought possible. I have been working with Luca for nearly two years and have learned so much but most importantly, had so much fun discovering the true beauty of music and the guitar. My only regret is I didn't take up guitar and music so much earlier. Luca is an extraordinary teacher and understands the challenges you face at an individual level which is so important in the learning process. And, by the way, he really knows how to play guitar and what music is all about.

I came to Luca after I had exhausted my ability to self teach. Luca is incredibly patient and has helped me correct my strumming technique, learn chords and scales, read music, understand more of the theory and invited me to join the band! He is a great all-in-one music teacher with a deep passion for music and teaching. Very fairly priced. Highly recommended.
Luca is a great teacher. He is patient, kind, and knowledgeable. He challenges me to explore new techniques and styles while also ensuring that I understand the fundamentals. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to take their guitar playing to the next level.
If you are looking for a guitar teacher with loads of patience, a fantastic teaching style including explaining music theory in a way you can actually understand and enhances your playing ability, talented, options to further extend your learning by joining a guitar band (if you wish) and a genuinely super nice guy then Luca is for you.
Thanks Luca for making my lessons the highlight of my week 🙂
Luca is an excellent guitar tutor. He spends time crafting a progress plan tailored to your goals on guitar and pushes you along whilst being patient. I finally feel like I’m progressing on an instrument I have been picking up over a number of years.
James has been teaching my 15 yo nephew electric guitar for over a year now. James is a gifted player and even more gifted teacher. He is engaging, knowledgeable and it is a joy to hear their jam sessions.
James is happy to explore different genres with my nephew, and has helped him refine his skills and expand his repertoire, be it jazz, blues, pop or improv.
He is kind and generous, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for an engaging and skilled teacher.
Very professional teacher and great person. Not only Luca taught me how to play guitar, he also most importantly gave me the right attitude anyone should have towards learning, listening to and playing music.

I'm getting back into guitar after a 20 year hiatus and Aydin is just what I needed. Aydin has a very in-depth understanding of theory, songwriting, melodic soloing and of course shredding techniques!
One of Aydin's best qualities is how he adjusts his teachings to suit your learning style and ability. He isn't simply a teacher that runs you through scales and chords. He teaches the connections, sounds and patterns through different types of lessons.
For example, I used to think that modes were "simply" a scale starting on a different note. While this is true, Aydin shows the real difference in modes by the variation in sounds the modal notes make on top of each chord. It really makes you listen to what you're playing instead of just going up and down a scale. I never knew I was so tone deaf until I really tried to play in this way! It was great! Only a teacher with an in-depth knowledge of theory can show you music in this way.
You know you're in front of a real musician when they speak to you in "major 5ths" and "perfect 4ths" instead of "it's on the 5th fret" 🙂
If you're unsure, just take one lesson and you'll see how effective he is at guitar and music teaching.
Aydin has been a super patient teacher and delivers great structured lessons both online and in-person. Still using the helpful, personalised resources and feedback he provided for my guitar practise!
Ethan is quite simply a great guitar teacher and a lovely guy. My teenage son had never played before but thanks to Ethan his guitar skills and knowledge have really developed quickly. He's patient, encouraging and makes every lesson enjoyable - choosing and teaching music that he knows my son enjoys and will want to practice. I honestly cannot recommend him highly enough. My son looks forward to every single lesson!
Christian has been teaching me for the past 2 years. I've been playing guitar for over 8 years and I have learned (and improved) more in my time Christian than in the entire period before. I highly recommend Christian to anyone who wants to get really good!
Ive been getting lessons with James for about 4 years I believe. He is a really good music teacher, he knows what he's talking about & how to implement within a lesson to suit my needs/skill set.
He will listen on what you want the lesson to include, i.e. songs/riffs to learn, music theory. But sometimes those are set as goals so maybe in a course of 3 lessons you learn other songs/sets of skills, to learn that said song/riff. Generally he likes to go through a whole song with all the parts (depending on the song) to play a song completely and not be a riff machine.
But I'm sure if you really really wanted to he will teach you just the riff.
Over your progress he will give you some options on where you would like to head / skills to improve/learn.
James is nice, calm & will help you with you guitar journey and I hope you give him a chance.
I have been getting lessons from James for 2-3 years now and have no intentions on stopping. Not only is James an amazing guitarist in all fields of popular music, he is very down to earth and easy to talk to which makes lessons far more enjoyable and easier to attend. My playing has improved dramatically over time with the help of James. He is very thorough at getting his point across. A great observer in your playing and where you need to improve and how. I would highly recommend James to any guitar player beginner- advanced.
I’ve been getting lessons from James for 3-4 years and am really enjoying it. The lessons are always varied and we swap between electric and acoustic, depending on songs. I get an opportunity to propose songs I like and James is really good at also picking similar songs than includes passages suitable to my skill level.
The teaching is very bespoke and it is always designed to increase my skills, in the areas I’m interested in, and will benefit my playing the most.
James is excellent in determining complementary exercises so we might work on a piece with a focus on strumming technique for a tricky pattern, and have another piece with a lead line requiring other skills - in a lesson. James has also introduced music theory to me, in a way that really gave me “a-ha” and given me confidence to develop my own chord progressions, and get a greater understanding of how music is “built”.
James is a fantastic guitar player, but his main skill is to really make you understand the proper technique and areas of improvement. A strong focus on rather perfecting a simple piece than playing something more advanced, only OK - which I really enjoy.
James is very a very genuine and caring person as well and is really focussed on helping me getting the most out of my playing and being effective with my limited practice time.
It’s the most important hour of “me time” in my week - and I would recommend James to anyone who is looking to commit to improve their guitar playing and take on some great guidance.
Aydin is an amazing teacher with loads of experience in music and the music industry. I've been taking lesson for a while now from him and feel a lot more confident in my playing and understanding of music theory in practise. I highly recommend Aydin to anyone who has a huge passion for music as he can and will be able to help you achieve what ever goal you have in music. he helped my sister with her HSC music performances and exams and as a year 12 he is also helping me prepare for my exams. He has a huge attention to detail with your playing and can help your playing sound absolutely perfect. I greatly recommend Aydin to anyone who has a passion for music
After 4 years of playing without any Mentor, I found this great guy. They way he teachs is amazing! Including the "Dynamics of picking, how to play crystal clear, how to play the most efficient way (timings and finger positions) etc. And this is just the playing part. He also teachs you to make the best and natural sounds for your rig. God knows how I was in darkness about the electric guitar sound engineering. Thanks to Aydin now I'm on the right path.
