Only in time have I realised how empowering this approach is - because it keeps you enthusiastic whilst also ensuring that you are learning the necessary theory to learn sustainably.
Simon is an excellent communicator and obviously a special music talent. This essentially makes the lessons a pleasure to be involved in - you really feel like you are learning from a pro!”
Simon’s nurturing approach certainly creates an easy to understand learning environment. I thought it would be a lot harder to learn how to play… especially at my age (48).”
Simon's approach to teaching has been awesome and in addition to teaching me the technical knowledge required, I have been able to learn songs I love which is what I ultimately want.
The charts and videos have been a massive help as they are easy to understand and follow. I have found the initial stages of learning to be fun and I am now completely addicted and no longer afraid of the guitar. This is thanks to a very passionate teacher. Thanks Simon.”
Simon is a teacher of the highest calibre, who demonstrates considerable commitment to his students. I find that Simon teaches guitar in a way that keeps things simple to understand and easy to learn.
I would recommend him highly to any prospective student”
From this I‘m inspired to practice each day and I am improving quickly. Also I’m trying some songwriting with what I have learnt.
The lessons are fun and are held in a music room I found creatively inspiring.”
Simon creates a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in which to learn and tailors the lessons to suit the student’s ability and level of progress always ensuring one leaves challenged and encouraged to persevere.
Simon is committed, enthusiastic and passionate about what he does which is infectious and I highly recommend him as a tutor.”

Based in Leichhardt, Inner West, NSW, I design individual learning programs personalized to your needs, so you can learn your favourite songs at your own pace.
Just nominate the songs you want to learn and we’ll work through them together week by week. Alternatively I have a wide repertoire of songs that you can pick from – see the list on this page.
Along the way we’ll learn new chords, song structures and styles of playing by learning the songs you love.
What if I get stuck?
For all the songs learnt you’ll receive clear and concise instructions detailing exactly how to play your songs. You’re welcome to audio record or video record the lesson to help you out at home and if you get stuck at any point in between lessons I’m happy to provide tips on how to get back on track at any time.
I’ve been playing the guitar for over 30 years, teaching for over 25 and have played at venues throughout Australia, Japan and Europe. In Australia, I’ve played at all sorts of venues, pubs, clubs, festivals and theatres.
Gift vouchers (great pressies!) are available at my online shop or by getting in touch with me directly. Also check out my testimonials from current and past guitar students, my ever expanding current song list (I’m always happy to learn songs specifically for you too!) and my terms and conditions.
