Guitar Lessons

I have been playing guitar for a while and I thought I was an okay guitarist. Since starting lessons with Melbourne Guitar Academy, I realised that I had developed some bad habits and had poor techniques. Michael has been able to point these issues out as well as provide me with really easy ways to practice and improve my playing. I’ve got to say that my playing has improved and I am enjoying playing guitar more than I have.
Apart for being a great musician and teacher, Michael has a fantastic way of teaching which is structured and will improve your guitar playing abilities no matter what level you are at.

I’ve been taking lessons at Melbourne Guitar Academy for 12 months and the program has helped me overcome challenges with knowing what to practice while motivating me to pick up the guitar at home regularly. I’m happy with the progress I’ve made in this time, I now know lots of scales, different techniques and music theory concepts which have been very important to my progression as a player. I would definitely recommend lessons at Melbourne Guitar Academy.

I highly recommend Michael as a guitar teacher. His passion and enthusiasm is infectious, and most importantly his ability to pass on his knowledge through a variety of teaching methods is outstanding. Michael is able to teach various genres and is open to reaching each individuals goals. I have two sons currently learning guitar with Michael, one of which was in the Top Scorers for VCE Music performance on guitar thanks to Michael’s commitment to teaching. Definitely worth giving Michael a go.
