Driven by his own quest for ability on the guitar, Ian quickly discovered that there was more to it than what the books and videos were saying and that most were lacking the glue that connected a nice theory/method back into the reality of really making things work on the guitar. Something to cut through the confusion of it all was needed. What evolved from this is a system that made sense and is based on natural alignment with the individual body mechanics of a person playing the instrument to get their hands working effectively. Natural movement, sound principles and an understanding for the neurological process required for the brain to engage and move the hands and fingers in a graceful manner. This coupled with Ian’s deep understanding for music allows a student to gain a complete understanding for the instrument in a progressive way, greatly helping the evolutionary process of student’s playing.  Lessons available both in Studio or through live online tuition.

One on one lessons available “In studio” or “Live on-line” for your friend or loved one…  Your Christmas shopping sorted!

The how’s and why’s were always answered with very ‘outside the box’ answers that made sense on many different levels. The learning of favourite songs always kept me interested in guitar, while the practical and key scales were also incorporated into my learning to ensure I learned the proper knowledge of the working fretboard. Ian is a fantastic player and can work with any style of music. A very friendly guy and easy to have a good chat with. I would highly recommend him to anyone, at any age, wanting to learn any style. Choice Bro :)”[/testimonial] [/testimonials]More testimonials
