So you want to learn some guitar?! But you don’t want to drive all over Auckland to do it! You’ve come to the right place.
I offer in-home guitar lessons for beginners through to advanced players in the Auckland region.
My teaching is student centred which means I’m here to get alongside the student and help them achieve their musical goals, teaching music they love to play and practise! I have a Bachelor of Music from the University of Auckland and have taught hundreds of students over the years from ages 7 all the way up to 70. Some of my career highlights include playing with Jamie McDell and Reece Mastin.
As well as teaching guitar I can also help with songwriting, music production and recording, sitting NCEA music exams, music theory and exploring ways music can help with self expression and general well being.
I like to focus my lessons around the students interests and goals. Some students will want to sit formal exams, others will want to focus on self expression such a improv and songwriting, or just learn to play a few chords and sing songs around the bonfire.
I’m open to all students regardless of ability or disability and provide a non judgemental, inclusive service.
Not only is Olly a great teacher, he is a great guy who has inspired me to learn and write music. He has the skill and diverse music taste to play anything. I'd recommend him to any guitarist or songwriter.
Olly as a young teacher was instantly popular with his students, and was eager to learn as much as possible about pedagogy, student exams, lesson planning and all the elements that go into making a great teacher. I was always impressed by how much preparation he put into his lessons including developing original arrangements, charts, and backing tracks for his students of an individualized nature
