LEARN TO PLAY GUITAR FOR FUN AND CREATIVITY!

Would you like to learn how to play guitar so you can play your favourite tunes or even write your own songs?

THE GUITAR IS ONE OF THE EASIEST INSTRUMENTS TO LEARN

Anthony has taught many students to play this rewarding instrument but his approach is somewhat unconventional – he teaches the easiest chords first! This may sound logical but most teachers don’t teach this way!

ANTHONY'S FOCUS IS ON BUILDING MOMENTUM

By learning easy chords first, students feel a sense of accomplishment early on and this builds CONFIDENCE! In turn, this confidence inspires more practice. Practicing creates results. Getting results builds confidence! And confidence inspires… Are you starting to get the picture?
