Are You Looking For The Best Guitar Lessons In Melbourne?

Guitar Teacher In Melbourne

Hi, my name is Michael and I am the owner and head teacher here at Melbourne Guitar Academy.

Everyday people come to me hoping that I can help them learn guitar and I am glad to say that I’ve helped over 1000 people learn to play guitar in my 15 years as a professional teacher.

During this time I’ve had countless people tell me that they regret giving up guitar lessons on previous occasions, or wish they hadn’t left it until so late in life to learn…

I’m yet to have a single student tell me they regret learning with me once they get started!

So if you’ve always wanted to learn guitar, stop putting it off and book a FREE lesson with me NOW!

The truth is that anybody can become a great guitarist and I’m here to show you how to avoid the common mistakes that 99% of players make while getting the results that you need to become the guitarist you have always dreamed of becoming.

Common myths like being  tone deaf, having too big (or too small) hands, or not having a musical bone in your body have no weight when it comes to holding you back from learning guitar. The only limitations you will face are the limitations you put on yourself.  

If you want to save a lot of time, money and frustration by learning guitar the right way, then taking lessons with me will be the best decision you will ever make. I’ll even give you a free ‘Introduction and Evaluation’ Lesson to get you started on your journey towards total mastery of the guitar.
Every program at MGA is built with your own goals and needs in mind and will be 100% unique to you.
There is no ‘one sized fits all approach’ Call me now so that we can find which program will best suit what you want to achieve with guitar lessons.

What Our Students Have to Say

Guitar Student


I love going to my guitar lessons, it has totally changed my life and my love for music. I Have learned so much in such a short amount of time. Would recommend MGA to anybody looking to learn guitar and meet a great team of people.


My experiences at Melbourne Guitar Academy have been extremely positive. After attending the Tuesday night advanced sessions I quickly noticed a massive improvement in my playing. From my technique to phrasing, MGA taught me how to work productively to achieve maximum results out of my practice time. I’ve been able to put my learnings into practice during live shows and have never felt so comfortable as a guitar player on stage.
