Melbourne Guitar Lessons for Beginners

Melbourne beginner guitar lessons

Beginner guitar lessons are for entry level players or those with limited experience.

‘Fun on the Frets’ focuses on teaching teens & adults of any age…either acoustic or electric guitars are suitable for beginner guitar lessons.

Playing guitar is fun, it’s called playing for a reason. You can play for your own enjoyment, you can play with others, you can even play as a full time job… but, you’ve got to start somewhere.

My beginner guitar program is designed to get you playing and having some fun with the guitar. It still requires a level of commitment from you but if you follow the lesson plan and do the practice you will learn to play.

The beginner program I’ve developed has been used successfully over many years now. It’s not static, but something I continually fine tune to get the best result for you. There is also a flexibility built in that allows me to tailor to your individual needs.
