Q. Is this course only for guitarists?

A. No! Although it is tailored towards guitarists, the methods taught can be applied to any instrument!

Meet Daniel.

Your teacher!

Hi, I'm Dan.
I love the classical guitar and am drawn to its unique array of colors and sounds. When I was young, my dad played at home a lot and started teaching me what he was playing - the first piece I learned was Spanish Romance and I loved it!

And now? I got my undergrad degrees in Melbourne and Doctor of Music in the USA. I've spent years researching old guitar methods to figure out the secrets of how musicians like Sor, Giuliani, Tarrega, Barrios, etc. thought about music and practiced their instrument. 

​In the process, this has unlocked many undiscovered techniques and models that give guitarists a platform and clear path to effective practice. Coupled with my experience as a concert artist, ​I hope these methods will empower you to practice and help bring new life to your guitar playing!

I'm looking forward to meeting and working with you!

Meet Michael.

Your co-ordinator!

Hi, I'm Michael.
I'm the one behind everything you see at the Melbourne Guitar Festival!

I organise a yearly concert series, an annual 3 day international guitar festival, plus educational courses and workshops!

I am also a professional musician myself, and play with the Melbourne Guitar Quartet!

The teaching method Daniel uses is just extraordinary, and his ability to break down the practice process in such a structured way, whilst retaining the individual musical freedom of each participant is second to none.

I can't recommend this highly enough, there is nothing else like this available anywhere!
