Guitar Lessons

I teach guitar, music theory and songwriting to beginners and intermediate adult students. I am located in the heart of the CBD, convenient for those working and living there. I am a BMus graduate and teach a range of styles of music such as Folk, Blues and Jazz. 

Lessons are $75 for 1h 15m (or $65 for an hr). Guitar / instrument provided in case you need



Lessons can be structured following a universal music learning path, or they can varying according to your needs. I have students who have specific goals such as being able to get up and perform at an Open Mic night, become a singer songwriter, relearn some guitar basics and techniques or just explore a more creative side. In all cases lessons are fun.

I am an experienced adult-learning coach, from the professional world, so I have lots of ‘learning enablement’ tricks that we help you master the guitar, songwriting or music theory, quicker.

I am available Monday to Friday, Saturday's 10am - 2pm

Meet Daragh

As a BA Music graduate from the Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Sydney, I have played in lots of different ensembles and bands and am passionate about music. At my studio, I have several instruments, which you are welcome to use during lessons. This can give a variety to the genre of music or the style of playing, be it, delta blues, electric rock, fingerpicking acoustic or jazz. I have also build my own guitar, under luthier, Gerard Gilet.
I have also done further courses in guitar repairs and maintenance. This has enabled me to help students make basic repairs, and keep their instruments in good condition I also compose, varying from Classical to Folk to Musicals, and can guide your through the fascinating world of writing, arranging and orchestrating songs. Along with the guitar, I play number of other instruments, mostly for fun, such as bass, mandolin, percussion, drums, and recently started the banjo!
