Music Lessons for the Advancing Musician.

What we can do for you

We offer individual or group music lessons to suit players at all levels.

If you’re interested in learning how to play your favourite music just for fun, we can show you how.

For academically minded students, Guitar Explorations is able to provide preparation for Contemporary Popular Music, Guitar – Australian Music Examinations Board AMEB or RGT@LCM music performance examinations. Like the AMEB system, the RGT@LCM examinations also leads to an internationally recognised qualification in Music Performance. The difference is the RGT@LCM examinations system allows a pathway for a qualification through London College of Music.

Just remember: in the entertainment industry, the more fun you have, the more money you’ll make.

Guitar Instructor: Pat Lajoie
