Hailing from down under in Melbourne, Australia, I am super passionate not only about music and guitar, but also with helping others reach their musical potential on guitar. Time and time again I see guitar courses teaching the most boring topics. Don’t get me wrong, I do believe musical theory and the basics to be important, but I also believe that there has to be a large level of enjoyment in learning in order to excel.
Here at GuitarZero2Hero, drawing from my years as a guitar teacher of all ages, I strive to teach you the latest and best songs coming from all genres ranging from pop, rock, metal & country.
Look, I’m not going to claim to be the best guitarist in world who can shred your face off with face-melting riffs. But I know I’m a great teacher, and I know I can take you from a zero guitarist to a hero guitarist fast. Everyone will have a different definition of a guitar hero – but in my eyes, it represents a guitarist who can hold his own – write songs, play in bands and make the most of his/her talents.
Picking up the guitar at age 12, I know first hand that learning your favorite songs and playing along to them is the fast track way to becoming a good guitarist and musician. Since then I have played in several bands in varying genres, and have been fortunate enough to have completed and traveled on countless national tours with international bands from the UK and US. Within these bands I have composed and recorded over 2 full length releases and 7 EP’s with world renowned producers and engineers in Australia and the US. My guitar playing abilities also led me to accompany Jared Leto and 30 seconds to mars live onstage on guitar, what a dream come true!
If I can achieve all this, you can too, these kind of musical opportunities are not out of your reach, so let me take you from zero to guitar hero.
