The guitar is an incredibly versatile instrument, and because of this there are countless different ways to teach it. So, instead of making you learn something you are not interested in, we will make sure that we tailor the curriculum to suit your own personal goals.
Whether you want to start a band, or become a classical guitarist, we can provide you with the tools to get you there. As our teachers all have different specialities, you will definitely get a expert in the area you want to study.
Traditionally, piano lessons are quite prescriptive, and force beginning students to cover a lot of material that they do not particularly want to learn. Teachers forget that most people just want to have fun on the instrument and learn to play their favourite tunes!
We always make sure that the student is following the musical path that suits them, whether that is learning classical technique and how to read music, or learning boogie-woogie blues and how to jam/improvise.
We are passionate about proving that ukulele is a serious instrument like any other rather than a novelty that goes out of tune quickly and sounds horrible! There will be plenty of opportunity to strum simple 3 chord songs, but there is also so much more.
Ukulele is often considered a “gateway instrument”, which it can be; but we can also help students take it much further. One student even ended up with the tools he needed to play flamenco on uke.
Singing is the easiest way to get into music however there is a fine and distinct art to doing it well! The voice is our musical fingerprint and we all have a unique tone that can be cultivated. The goal for any musician is to emote with conviction and singing is perfect for that.
So, why should you get lessons from a vocal teacher? To make a strong transition from shower singing to owning the stage, correct technique and guidance from a pro will give you all the foundations you need to achieve your goals.
Bassists get a lot of stick from other musicians because it is supposedly a “simple” instrument. If you have had a go playing one, you will know as well as we do that this isn’t true.
You are expected to make everyone else look good, but get no thanks. We know the truth though; you are the most important member of the band. We will show you everything you need to know to hold down that low end.
If you are looking for harmonica lessons, chances are you have probably realised it is not as easy as it is small. Do not worry, you have come to the right place. Whether you have no idea how you are going to get a clean note or bend the damn thing, we can set you straight.
The range of possibilities on harmonica is staggering, and you are often expected to fulfil multiple roles in a band; rhythm, melody and harmony. This can all be overwhelming when you start out, but we will break it down into manageable blocks. Before you know it, you will be able to play on your front porch, in a band or at a jam session.
