Having played guitar for over 10 years, i have cycled through many guitar tutors and not a single one is comparable to Felipe of Guitar City. Not only has he helped built my guitar skills professionally and enthusiastically, he has formed a lifelong relationship along with it. Couldn’t ask for more. Matt Shearer

Matt Shearer

Felipe has been teaching my son guitar for the last 7 years. He is an outstanding guitar teacher who, as well as having great technical knowledge and ability, has a really positive attitude. I can highly recommend Felipe.

Kerry Robson

I’ve personally got so much out of these lessons, would highly recommend to anyone at any skill level

Matthew Mcfadden

Felipe is a really good teacher. He has heaps of energy, is passionate about teaching and is really encouraging. I always look forward to my lessons with him.

Ava Walker

As a student with no previous musical experience I was delighted after a few lessons to be able to attempt to play such well known songs as “Day tripper” and “Bye Bye love” on an acoustic guitar. Felipe’s strategy included music sheets with notes but more importantly, due to my total lack of musical experience, comparative finger position on frets and strings, something I could understand better.
