Hi, I’m Michael Gumley and I’m a professional guitar teacher, performance coach and music career mentor based in Melbourne. Over the last 10 years I have helped hundreds of students learn how to play guitar, overcome hurdles in their technique and make massive improvements to their playing, and I want to help you too.

Want to learn guitar the right way?
Many aspiring students experience a lot of frustration when they try and teach themselves, or are put off learning altogether by inexperienced teachers who have no idea what they are doing. Both of these learning approaches are a waste of your time and money. I focus on teaching guitar the right way so that you can make fast progress and get massive results immediately, leading to you feeling good about your playing and motivated to keep making progress.

Most teachers treat all students the same and follow traditional teaching methods that are slow, boring and dated which leads to students feeling unmotivated and eventually quitting. I focus on getting to know you and creating a personalised lesson program based off of your own goals that will transform you from the player you are now into the the player you have always dreamed of being.
At Melbourne Guitar Academy we focus on YOU
When we focus on what you want to get out of guitar lessons by following your personal lesson plan the results will come faster than you ever thought possible. This will save you lots of time, money, frustration and shave years off the amount of time it will take to make you into a great guitar player. I’ve helped countless other students achieve their goals and become great players and I promise to do the same for you.
We have the right program for YOU
Whether you just want to learn how to play the chords to your favourite songs, have ambitions of becoming a professional musician, or want to be the world’s next guitar god, we will create a program to help you achieve it. We run lesson programs for students of all ages and abilities from child to adult, beginner to advance and focus on all styles of contemporary guitar music

Imagine what it would be like to play guitar
the way you have always dreamed?

Take the time now to imagine what it would be like if you could play guitar the way you’ve always wanted to? Visualise yourself playing your favourite song, jamming in a band with friends or ripping a white hot guitar solo onstage in front of 10,000 screaming people. Imagine being the cool person playing guitar at the party and impressing all the girls, or playing a beautiful song for a special someone on a beach during summer, or even hearing that song on the radio.

Imagine being a proud parent watching your son or daughter performing in front of the whole school for the first time, or framing the ‘High Distinction’ exam certificate before putting it up on the wall. Do any of these sound like things you want to achieve? All of these goals are well within your reach and taking guitar lessons is the first step in what will be a very fulfilling and rewarding journey.

I can help you get results!

Too many teachers use traditional linear approaches to guitar which are boring, outdated and usually result in students loosing motivation and quitting guitar. They blame the student for not being dedicated enough or not having ‘what it takes’ when in reality the student is set up to fail front the beginning. Fortunately I have developed a geometric approach to learning guitar that will have you improving in many areas of your playing simultaneously whilst still keeping lessons fun, engaging and in line with your goals.

Many of my students have been with me for multiple years and in addition to having a great student base in my local community, have people coming from as far a Frankston, Geelong, Box Hill and Oakleigh to take lessons with me. Whatever you guitar playing and musical goals are, I will help you achieve them and set out a plan to make it happen in the shortest time possible through a personally customised lesson program.

I will help you overcome hurdles and road-blocks in your guitar playing!

I learned guitar the hard way! It was a very frustrating experience that took a longer time and cost me more money than It ever should of. My personal mission is to help you avoid the many hurdles that most guitar players face while learning and to make the experience as fun and rewarding as possible along the way.

Any problem or obstacle that you may be facing or will face in the future I have already overcome and I am here to show you how to do it, all in the shortest time possible. I’ve been playing guitar at a level I’ve always dreamed of for years now, it is the best feeling in the world, and I want you to realise your potential to achieve it too. When taking lessons at Melbourne Guitar Academy you will learn what is causing your current limitations and how to break free of them and start moving forward.

You’ll be surrounded by a peer group of killer guitarists just as success driven and motivated as yourself and you will be given access to the best lessons and classes in Melbourne, giving you no choice but to become a phenomenal guitarist and master musician.
