Structured guitar lessons with built in flexibility

Over my musical journey I’ve charted a course that has seen me playing with and learning from greats such as Tommy Emmanuel and Bruce Clarke. I’ve toured the country and shared the stage with many Australian music legends.

I’m now offering guitar lessons in Melbourne from my studio in Box Hill where I continue to share the knowledge and experience I’ve gained along the way with my students, helping them on their journey.

The lessons follow a structured plan, but have built-in flexibility to cater for your individual needs. While we go at a pace that you’re comfortable with, I will constantly challenge you to build up your knowledge and become a better, more skilled player.

Private guitar lessons work for a reason

A connection is vital; individual attention gets results.

I love to play and teach guitar; it’s something I’ve done my entire adult life. I get great joy from teaching and watching my students progress.

One huge determiner to success is the personal connection as it makes the learning process so much easier. You make faster progress, the lessons are more interesting and it’s fun.

Working with you one on one ensures you get the result you are looking for.

At my first lesson with Ross he instantly pushed for improvement in an easy style that I could understand and each lesson thereafter introduced new concepts and challenges.

Mike Henwood

I needed a teacher who would give me a solid foundation upon which to build. Someone who was very patient, warm, friendly, who was clear and easy to understand. Above all a teacher who was as committed to my progress as I was.

Guitar Player

Michelle Smith

In a male-dominated area like guitar playing, I have always felt entirely comfortable with Ross. He is unfailingly patient, and always encourages technical precision while keeping things fun and exciting. I’ve already fulfilled most of the aspirations.
