Play Guitar The Way You Always Wanted

  • Have you always wanted to play guitar, but never got around to it?
  • Tried playing guitar before but given up in frustration?
  • Sick of trying to teach yourself and getting nowhere?
  • Are you looking for the best quality guitar lessons for your child?

If you said yes to any of the above and want to get the best guitar lessons in Melbourne, then I will be able to help you. No matter what your skill level is, you'll get a FREE introductory lesson so we can work out what your challenges are, and so you can make sure these are the right guitar lessons for you.

I know what it's like to feel frustrated when learning to play the guitar, but with the right teacher who provides encouragement, support and guidance, you'll find it a lot easier to overcome all those challenges, and start playing guitar the way you always wanted.

What You Get With These Guitar Lessons

1. A FREE introductory guitar lesson where we can assess your strengths, weaknesses and goals and form a plan on how to overcome these obstacles. Most teachers expect you to pay for lessons before they know any of this!

2. You will be getting guitar lessons from a teacher who actually tracks your progress, and knows your strengths and weakness instead of a teacher who doesn't pay attention to your progress. 

3. You will learn the right things at the right time and in the right way. Most teachers don't know how to do this, and will either give you items that are far too hard, or too simple. 

4. You will learn to play the guitar faster than trying to learn on your own.

5. You will learn how to practice effectively and efficiently to gain great results in a short space of time. Practice skills is rarely taught by guitar teachers.

7. You will learn skills that are relevant to your musical goals.

8. You will gain motivation and inspiration to become the guitarist you have always wanted to become.

9. You will understand how music works and how it can influence people's emotions.

11. You will have a lot of fun and gain a big sense of satisfaction during the process of learning and making music.

 

 

What you get with most teachers

What you get here

How do you know if you are able to help me?

Most teachers will say they can help you, ask you a few basic questions about your guitar skills, and make you pay for the first lesson. If they can't help you, you are out of pocket for the cost of the lesson.

I will arrange a FREE introductory guitar lesson, where we will assess your current skill level, challenges, goals, and interests. I will then use this information to plan your next lessons. If you are a beginner, we can jump right into the lesson. If I can't help you, I will be upfront about it, and you won't be out of pocket!

How will you be able to track my progress and know what we should be working on from week to week?

Most teachers do not keep a record of what you do in each lesson, and usually forget what you have been working on each week!

Not only will I keep a track of what things you are working on, but I will create a customised practice schedule for you so that you know exactly how to divide your practice time, and get faster results.

How will you help me when I have problems or become frustrated?

In most guitar lessons, teachers tend to try and provide new “stuff” to do each week even if you aren't ready for it. This is what leads to overwhelm and frustration.

I will train you in how to specifically practice new content, then we will go over how to actually apply it in a musical context, and integrate it with other skills. This will cause less frustration, and more overall enjoyment of music.

How are your lessons structured?

Normal guitar lessons come in two main types. The first is a cookie-cutter approach that completely ignores your individual skills, challenges, and interests. The other is where the teacher just makes it up as they go. Usually a lot of time is wasted in the lesson as the teacher hand-writes the material out for you.

I plan your lessons out in advance, so I already know what we will be covering before you even arrive. This is based on what your interests are, as well as what areas we need to improve.

All the materials we use are already prepared, and will be printed out for you, and you will also get backing tracks to practice along with.

How can you prove that you can provide results?

Most teachers (even the really good ones) have a hard time of actually proving this.

I've always wanted to play guitar, and now I can write my own music. I started as an adult, you don't need to be a young kid to get started. I think being able to come up with my own phrases and licks is really good. I never thought I'd be able to do that.

Prior coming to Brunswick Guitar Lessons, I was a complete novice. When I bought this guitar, I took it home and did not know a single chord. I'm now able to look up music, and in 10 or 15 minutes I'm able to play the chords or the riffs and that's definitely from my lessons here.

There are things that I can do, that Greg has taken only 5 minutes to show me that I didn't even think were possible. It blows me away some times.

Greg has been really great in allowing me to continue what I want to play, how I want to play it, but also guiding me through understanding what I am playing.
In a short time, I have already learned a whole lot of simple "magic tricks" that have meant the guitar has more options for meIf you are not taking lessons currently, you should just sign up to Greg's lessons because he is pretty great

I've improved a lot since I've taken up lessons with Greg. I started with trying to do it on my own with a video, but that wasn't working, and I've found my playing has improved significantly since taking lessons. 

I find the pace that Greg teaches at is really good. He's good at picking what standard you are at, and giving you stuff that will help you progress, instead of stuff that is too hard or too easy.

I decided to take lessons with Greg because I find him very organised, and he has a lot of great teaching materials. Lessons with Greg have helped me understand all the guitar techniques and music theory. One thing I find really helpful is the various scales he taught me, as well as how to apply them and create my own music with them.
