Adult Guitar Lessons
  • Do you feel stuck at your current level of playing guitar and struggle to know what you should be doing to become the guitar player you dream of?

  • Or are you new to guitar and want to kick off your playing with the very best methods proven to ensure you gain and improve your guitar playing skills really fast?

  • Have you been playing guitar for a while and are sick of not knowing what to do to break out of playing the same things over and over again?

Many people want to be a better player and I understand how frustrating it can be to want so badly to see improvement come faster than what it is. I have dealt with the confusion of not knowing what to practice and I have survived through the dark days where things seem to go backwards rather than forwards.

If you are struggling to do what you want on guitar, I totally get it and according to all the guitar players I know and students I teach, this makes you completely normal.


I have helped many people to achieve big results and get breakthroughs in the areas of their guitar playing they needed most. You can get big results just as easily,

How you learn will determine the way you feel every time you pick up the guitar...
you deserve to feel awesome 

I have listened and learnt a lot from my students about the things they felt were holding them back and frustrations they used to have before they met with me. Through these collected stories, my own experiences and years of observing students playing habits as they have walked through the door, I have found that there are many different ways of learning that can actually trap you into making very little or no progress at all.
Things such as;

  • Books and videos that can't tell you how to fix your technique or why you don't sound like the recording.

  • Rhythmic mobile apps and video games that miss the point of playing music on guitar and have you churning hours of playing the same songs on repeat just for the sake of a high score and gaining levels.

  • Learning from great guitar players instead of great guitar teachers, these are the friends and family who have the best of intentions but can't seem to understand or communicate why you are struggling or can't get you past what you are stuck on. 

  • Cheap and/or lazy teachers who don't listen to what you need, never show you how to play the music you love or simply don't know how to get you to the level you want to be.

Nursing Student, Sonny Po

"I have had some really major breakthroughs.. I can express myself more creatively on guitar now. It allows me to enjoy what I play and when I hear it, it sounds good. Practicing the way Daniel has taught me has seen my skills increase rapidly."

Pilot, Isaac Lake

"Before I started with Daniel I couldn't play a song and now I can play multiple. Compared to 4 months ago, before I started with Daniel, just worlds apart. I was playing along to youtube without getting any progress, in these 4 months, now I have a few songs under my belt.  Now when I jump on youtube I am picking up songs quicker and easier, it's made a huge difference."

Discover how you can make rapid progress and breakthroughs with less effort than you might think

If you have struggled to play guitar because you have tried to learn using the above methods, it is not your fault! There is a seemingly endless ocean of information about music and how to learn guitar. You are not to blame if you have gotten lost while trying to do the best with what you have gathered so far.


Instead of remaining lost and spending many years of experimenting, there is a solution that will get you feeling great about your playing and learning the right things to practice in the right order: finding the RIGHT guitar teacher.


The right guitar teacher is someone who has either "walked the path" of becoming the guitar player you want to be or more importantly, has proven to help others walk the path even quicker by using their experience to shave years off of the learning process by teaching the mistakes and inefficient practice methods to avoid.


Imagine how you would feel if you could transform your guitar playing so that you could play effortlessly the way you have always wanted to. Now you can easily play your favorite music. Imagine what it would be like to hear nail every note that you play, it is clear, in time and when you hear it, it sounds so great people want you to keep playing.

This is what I help people with every day and it is achievable for you, when you have the right instruction and training. This is the crucial difference between "a" guitar teacher and "the" guitar teacher for you.

Over the many years of playing guitar I have personally trained with 7 guitar teachers, so I can safely say that not all guitar teachers are built the same! In fact, when I found the teacher that was right for me it was immediately apparent as my ability to play guitar shot through the roof and I was able to reach milestones I never thought that I could. 

Knowing who can get you the results you are after is important, any teacher who cannot do this for you is a waste of investment in your time, money and focus. When you do find the right teacher you will get the rapid progress and breakthroughs you have been wanting. So how do you know how to find the right teacher who will get you the best results? 


Here are a few things to look out for;

Q: What styles of music do you teach? 
A: I specialize in contemporary music which includes blues, acoustic, pop, heavy metal, country, rock, folk. 

Please Note: I DO NOT teach jazz or classical styles.

Q: What ages do you teach?

A: I teach children from age 6 up, adults and senior adults 

Q: Aren't I too old to learn?

A: I have helped seniors who have started learning guitar for the first time past the age of 70. If you are a senior and have wanted to play guitar, you have waited long enough, don't put it off any longer, start experiencing the joy of playing music as soon as possible.

Q: Do you teach acoustic or electric guitar?

A: Both and you can use a nylon string guitar as well if you like : )

Q: Do you teach any other instruments?

A: No, unlike other teachers and music shops that may teach a variety of  instruments at a basic level I specialize in guitar so that I can take you from whatever experience level you are now (beginners welcome) to an advanced level. Note: I do have some programs that would be suitable for experienced instrumentalists who are interested in improving their songwriting skills or developing aural skills (ear training) but all physical technique instruction is only for guitar.

Q: I am left handed, can your lessons help me play guitar?

A: Fear not southpaw, I have helped left handed guitar players and in some ways it is easier! When I demonstrate technique on guitar, it is like looking in a mirror. 

Q: I work a lot do you teach outside the 9-5?

A: Yes, there are also flexible learning options, I am sure I can find something to suit your schedule.

Q: I am nervous about learning guitar with a guitar teacher and I am not sure if I am/would be any good at it.

A: There is only one way to find out. Playing guitar is a learnt skill, nobody is born able to play guitar.

If you have the desire to learn and a willingness to follow instruction, hiring a guitar teacher is the best way for you to learn if you are nervous.

You will have somebody to cheer you on, gently correct any self criticism, perfectionism or over thinking and you will have the right solutions to get you through your guitar playing barriers quickly. 

Here is what the students say...

Construction supplies worker and father, Jeremy Keefe

"The tips and tricks that Daniel can help pass on, the nuances in songs, now I realize it is not as hard as what you think. Now I’ve learnt some of those skills, I can take songs on that I thought I could never take on before. It gives me the confidence to know it (playing guitar) is very achievable.”

Mother and business owner Tracy talks about her daughter Emily (at age 12)

"Daniel is really confident in what he does and I believe he knows what he is doing. He has encouraged Emily a lot, she is really enjoying it and she has come a long way. Absolutely brilliant to hear her progressing and she is a lot more confident now. I can hear her strumming in her room and it is lovely to listen to her."
