Private lessons, group  lessons, and all courses develop on topics lectured at these masterclasses.

The masterclasses are not intended to teach you how to play the guitar, but to create a thorough exposition of what you have to learn, why and how, in order to achieve the desired sound, level of expression or uniqueness.

Guitar learning is a discipline associated with drills and repetition. There is no other way of learning such and this requires time, patience and love. The masterclasses are geared towards guitar students will  strong self learning skills. The Creative guitar school is where all music comes to life through social interaction. Private lessons or group lessons target developing that knowledge, that is explained at the masterclasses, into your individual musical expression.

Students Social Club Creative Guitar School

Students Social Club Creative Guitar School

‘The desire to give our best to others ultimately brings the best out of us’

Would you join us for some fun?

We are all different, all unique. We have one guitar, or a dozen guitars. You like big sounds or small sounds…a soft acoustic breeze or a storm full of electric sounds. We can play one chord or big harmonies. Yet we all share the same passion, the same love for music. We go to the same school, but we miss each other!!

No more of this! We are now part of a social club, created by us for us. A club embracing our differences, loving our uniqueness, sharing our passion…and igniting our talent!

Playing together, jamming together, creating together, giggling together…encouraging each other.

We now exist on:

And somewhere in Victoria, where the wind blows nothing short of fine tunes!

WARNING: Any use of the word ‘we’ in this document actually refers to and includes You!

Students Social Club Creative Guitar School

Why be part of this?

Wrong question! ‘Why not?’ is the right question. But if you insist, the answer is because we will;

  • have access to each other
  • have stronger purpose in our guitar learning,and above all
  • because it’s fun!

How does it work?

Well, pretty simple. Join the facebook page, subscribe to the youtube channel and follow the instagram account!

From there, we all get to participate, comment, ask questions and share the fun.

Students Social Club Creative Guitar School

What on earth will we be up to?

  • Team up with each other to jam on our favourite songs
  • Share videos of our latest team projects on social media (something to be proud of!)
  • Ask each other questions and bounce ideas (well hey, we’ve got each others’ back!)

Who is this really for?

Every student of the Creative Guitar School…Really, no kidding!

We are all coming together to support each other and make friends both virtually and for real!

Oh…Did we mention that this was going to be fun?!
