Our experienced and passionate guitar tutors come from a variety of music backgrounds and take care in helping students learn a range of music styles. We offer Acoustic, Electric and Bass Guitar lessons with lessons available for complete beginners right through to advanced levels.
Beginner students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading, technique and theory during lessons. A variety of guitar method books can be used to accomplish the basics, we also encourage students to bring CDs or their mobile device to their lesson to learn their favorite pieces.
As the students skills advance and a solid technical foundation has been built, students are then encouraged to explore the different guitar genres available, for example, contemporary, rock, pop, classical, Australian Music Examination Board Exams, jazz, etc. LTM also offers opportunities for guitar students to be involved in ensemble groups at the LTM Studios. Students who are at an intermediate level are welcome to join.

- Should I learn with an electric, acoustic or a classical guitar?
That entirely depends. You can choose the one that you like best or you can even try all three. At some point you will have a good idea about which type of guitar is your favourite (or the most suitable). I would suggest classical guitar (nylon string acoustic) if you are an absolute beginner.
- Do I need to own my own guitar to take a lesson?
LTM offers guitars for hire.
- Do I need to bring any other equipment to the lesson?
To begin with: not really. After a few lessons you will have a musicbook and a folder of some kind for storing sheet music etc.
- What age should I start learning guitar?
Any age is perfectly fine. For ambitious students the younger you start is better up to a point. However, we have many students start between the ages of 8 and 12 years old.
- How often should I be practicing?
Every day is the best for progression! However, that doesn’t mean that you have to spend hours on the guitar (unless you really enjoy it). When you are starting out, 15 minutes a day is ok.
