With a brand new teaching studio in Coffs Harbour, Guitar Lessons Play is ready to begin 2017 with you and our favourite instrument. The teaching studio is located at Shop 7 / 78 Bray St, Coffs Harbour, NSW, otherwise known as Bray St Shops. So pop in or send an email or phone and lets talk about why you would want to learn to play the guitar.
Music is easily one of the most universal experiences that humans share. All cultures through all of history have been involved in music, from creating to listening and composing to analysing. We have made use of all sorts of materials in the creation of instruments and come up with an array of sounds. In modern history, the guitar has risen to be one of the most widely used and played instruments overall. Of course, it’s awesome!
No doubt you’re a fan of music and have your favourite genres, bands and players. I’m sure that you have been inspired countless times and been through many emotions with your music. Maybe you have been playing for a while and have written songs of joy as well as sadness, or maybe even something middle of the road. Maybe you haven’t picked up an instrument before but have always had a desire to do so. Perhaps you’ve imagined playing guitar but thought it would be too difficult or you’re not musical enough or perhaps not the right age? These perceived blocks can be overcome smoothly with the right guidance, mentoring and lesson structure. If you have the desire to learn, then now is the time to begin this rewarding experience.
Guitar Lessons Play is a new business in Coffs, with a teaching studio at shop 7, Bray St Shopping Centre, Coffs Harbour. Our lessons also extend to Bellingen every Thursday, teaching at St Mary’s Primary School and after school lessons from the Triple B Community Radio Station building on Wheatley St. Our pursuit is the exploration and education in musicianship and enjoyment of the guitar. With a focus on working with real people achieving real results on the instrument, our lessons are catered to the individual student’s goals and musical desires. Music is an integral part of society around the world. It is a privilege to be a part of the Coffs Harbour and Bellingen musical community and to help locals from children to retirees and everyone in between, nurture and extend their capabilities.
My name is Glen Hitchon and as the owner and head teacher at Guitar Lessons Play, I can definitely help you. My passion and experience with the guitar will be shared with you as well as my knowledge of the instrument. My Diploma of Music and university studies will ensure that you receive the most up to date, cohesive and enjoyable education in your guitar lessons. Having studied advanced jazz guitar with Sydney Conservatorium teachers Steve Brien and Steve McKenna, I am able to deliver sound and achievable results for you on the guitar.
If you want to jam at home, with your friends or play in a band, our lessons will support you to achieve your goals. Having years of experience playing in the band Yardvark and writing songs that have been performed around Australia, having recorded albums and had songs receive radio play as well as licensed to Logie award winning television shows such as Offspring, you will be supported in a wide range of musical adventures.
I am able to help you uncover more of your talent and potential with our guitar lessons here in Coffs Harbour and Bellingen. I enjoy helping students every week, from beginner players through to more advanced players, teaching kids, teenagers and adults. I firmly believe that
there is never an end result in the world of music and playing guitar. It is such an amazing, lifelong journey.. Enough talk, let’s play!
