Classical Guitar Lessons

Levels Taught: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

I was taught a technique modelled on John Williams', and I find this extremely effective. At the same time, my interest is in helping you learn whatever you want to learn, regardless of the details.

As a qualified Alexander Technique teacher as well as being a guitar and banjo teacher, I can help you to play efficiently, meaning both a better quality of performance and less chance of injury. In the lessons we can balance technique, creativity, and expression in whatever combination is most inspiring and effective for you.
The process can be a lot of fun!

Every player is unique, with their own tastes, desires, psychology and physiology, so each student will respond has their own unique learning style. I enjoy learning about my students so that I can help them to achieve their own goals, in the way that works for them.

I’ve played in many bands for many years, including several international tours with gypsy band Lolo Lovina.
I graduated from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in 2004 with a Bmus.studies(Musicology) degree.
I graduated from Sydney Alexander Technique as an Alexander Technique teacher in 2016.
I studied classical guitar with Philip Houghton for three years, as well as studying jazz, folk, rock, metal, and other styles all my life.

Dave is a great guy. He helped me learn what I wanted to learn and sent me personal notes after each lesson. Highly recommend!
