Discover the art of unplugged guitar in Bondi Beach and build a solo repertoire along with improvisational skills you can enjoy for years to come. Beginner to advanced. All ages are welcome! I teach Classical, some Fingerstyle Jazz, a little Flamenco, Electric Blues, and Rock with a strong emphasis on improvisation.
My goal as your tutor is to help you attain a higher level of freedom of expression on your instrument. As a solo performer, my niche is within ‘electronic-influenced’ improvised looping with effects.
I also perform as a live soloist with electronic DJs. For students looking for something completely original in terms of tuition, I can offer techniques, approaches, and interesting uses of effects that work within electronic music.
My lessons are in-depth, relaxed, and fun, with a laser focus on technique and the use of dynamics to drive your playing to the next level. Another key component to developing your ear and musicianship is through jamming – which we’ll do a lot of.
Basic theory will be thrown in for good measure but not bog you down. It’s the playing we’re set to improve.
