Learn at home with our crystal clear live HD video conferencing!

Here at the Guitar studio I have been teaching lessons through video conference since 2011.
As Technology has rapidly evolved, real time video conferencing has seen dramatic improvements in clarity and quality.
As well as seeing a very clear picture and hearing nice clear audio on your end, I can also share my screen with you so that you can see real time workings on music scores and song sheets.  At the same time as doing the live stream call, I am also recording and sending the key parts of the lesson through to you so you can review parts as you practice.  Most reasonably modern laptops have a built in webcam that is good enough quality for me to see you clearly.

Teaching live online since 2011

    Now I am writing my own songs

    When I first started with Ian I could hardly play and only knew two or three chords. Within a year Ian had taught me the fundamentals of guitar, but he had also made it fun. He is a chill fun dude to be with yet you learn so much so fast and it's great. I really enjoy each lesson. Now I am writing my own songs thanks to Ian. He has been a huge inspiration and an amazing teacher.

    My confidence has been boosted

    Ever since I started taking lessons with Ian 4 years ago, I have felt a massive improvement in my guitar playing. My confidence has been boosted from Ian’s honest feedback, because he always finds ways for you to improve. Ian is adaptable to all types of genres, or can teach scales and music theory. Ian’s whole way of teaching is unique and efficient. His friendly, helpful attitude makes him easy to talk to, and ask for help. Ian has helped me for my NCEA music exams and performances, and reach the top marks. His methods are fun and easy to learn from, thanks to the videos he creates and tablature he sends you. If you are beginning guitar or already experienced, I recommend Ian as your teacher.

    I started lessons with Ian in 2020. I've been playing 'strum and hum' for years with much enjoyment but without much technical knowledge. Ian's advice has helped me improve some key fundamentals - like hand and finger positioning. I have definitely made progress with my finger strength and overall technique. I'm also learning my way around the fretboard and some chord theory ... I travel a lot for work and it's great to have a teacher I can access from anywhere in the country. Ian has a great set up with multiple video cameras so you can see clearly what he is demonstrating. Even though you're not in the room it feels as if you are! With the skills I've gained I'm enjoying playing and singing more than ever. My next step is to build up a playlist and get brave enough to share with an audience!

    playing current music

    The HD Video conference lessons are amazing!! Being able to learn the guitar from your own home, at a time of your choosing, anywhere in the country, makes life just easy. Ian's way of teaching has you playing current music you actually listen too in a very short time. and he will record what he's teaching you as you go, so its like having a guitar tutor with you 24/7 whenever you want to practice until the next lesson. I know that without Ian's teaching, guidance and systems I would not be playing the guitar at a level even close to what I am today.

    Approximately four years Harrison started at the beginner level and quickly progressed to playing a variety of more complex songs. His NCEA marks showed how far he progressed with support from Ian. Ian chose songs of interest to Harrison. In his sessions in person and online he broke down the songs in chunks making them easier to learn. He explained difficult sections of songs in-depth. He gave honest feedback. Flexibility of online and in person lessons worked for Harrison and enabled him to continue lessons throughout lockdown. Harrison is is looking forward to playing the guitar casually for friends.
