GUITAR TUITION WITH DARRYL

I am available to book for private tuition in Gold Coast Australia, and Skype Lessons Worldwide.

Our one to one guitar lessons will be tailored towards your goals. We will focus on your musical taste as well as the technique and theory to help you understand the music you are playing. As an experienced musician, I can also help with any queries regarding anything from song writing, gear, and live performing.

GUITAR LESSONS FOR BEGINNERS

Everyone has to start somewhere and with plenty of experience teaching beginners we will sail through the basics and get you playing some of the songs that you love within your first lessons!

GUITAR LESSONS FOR KIDS

I have a broad experience teaching people of all ages; so far as young as 6. For children younger than 10 I thoroughly recommend only booking a 30 minute session to ensure their concentration level stays at its peak.

MOST STYLES TAUGHT

I teach most modern and contemporary styles to an advanced level. Whether you want to simply strum along to your favourite songs, learn fingerstyle, delve into the complexities of jazz, groove to blues, or tear up the fretboard with Rock or Metal, I’ve got you covered.

GUITAR LESSONS FOR EXPERIENCED

Perhaps you want help breaking out of the same predictable patterns and melodies? Or you strive for a greater understanding of fretboard visualisation and theory? Maybe you want to explore more advanced techniques and songs? I can help you with all of this, and more!

GRADED STUDY

For those who want to gain qualifications in guitar I can teach graded study. Grades are only taught upon request and are never forced on anyone.

Why choose me over other instructors or schools?

 

Experience: 

I have literally taught hundreds of students from all over the world and received countless positive testimonials which you can see on all of my internet platforms. The knowledge I possess today has come from thousands of hours practice since my early teens. Over those years I have even received lessons and performed with some of the worlds most renowned players such as Paul Gilbert (Mr Big), Guthrie Govan, Andy Timmons, Nick Johnston, Tom Quayle, Christophe Godin, and Mika Tyyskä.

Quality:

This is my most dedicated passion and I take it seriously. I love my job, and that shows in everything I do. I am so confident in my methods that if you schedule a lesson with me and genuinely believe that it was not worth your time or money, I will refund you without hesitation.

Fun:

I can’t deny that there are many guitar players out there who are better than me. But can they teach well, and are they genuinely fun to be around? I like to think (and have been told many times) that my teaching style is very welcoming, accommodating, and that my general attitude is always fun and engaging. I think these are incredibly important skills to have; especially as a teacher.

"HE'S A VERY TALENTED GUITARIST AND TEACHER. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND DARRYL TO ANYONE LOOKING TO LEARN THE GUITAR"
