Using a proven, structured Guitar Method, learn the most important Guitar Skills to be able to play your favourite Pop and Rock songs! Learn how to sight-read music and how to solo using improvisation, all while using practical Music Theory to understand how it all comes together.
The main goal of teaching at Essendon Guitar is in a practical way - teaching you skills you need to have to be able to play real songs.
Over the last 8 years I have developed a teaching method which involves learning the fundamental guitar skills step-by-step, while applying them to popular rock and pop songs along the way.
“I would highly recommend Kieran as a guitar teacher for children and adults alike. He is a patient, encouraging instructor who demonstrates enthusiasm and passion towards both his music and students in a comfortable and professional environment.” – Michelle
If you're an absolute beginner wanting to learn the basics - my structured teaching method will go through all of the main fundamentals of the guitar to get you to playing your favourite songs.
After a private introduction where we will introduce the main guitar skills over several weeks, the goal is to move into a group lesson with another student of the same standard, to help learn timing skills and how to play with other guitarists. Here we can focus on both rhythm and lead guitar technique, as well as learning listening and early performance skills.
If you already know a thing or two - my goal is to assess your strengths and weaknesses so I can help you get to the next level as a player, a free trial lesson will give us the chance to understand exactly what you want to learn, what you can already play, and where I can help you.
Every student is unique, and I keep a detailed track of your progress throughout our guitar lessons to appropriately plan each lesson to help you progress, while encouraging you to provide me with your goals and dream songs for us to work toward.
Some of the artists we'll be covering in just the first few lessons:
The Rolling Stones, Santana, Bruno Mars, Guns 'n' Roses, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Ed Sheeran, Green Day and heaps more!
