Frequently Asked Questions


Why learn to play the Guitar?

The guitar is the second most popular instrument to learn. Nearly every song we know and love incorporates guitar in some way. It is a very portable instrument, making it easy to practice while out of town or on vacations, and has a mellow and pleasant sound even in the initial stages of learning. The guitar is extremely versatile, with styles ranging from Classical and Flamingo, to Jazz, and Pop, and Rock. This means there are endless musical worlds to explore once you get the basics. While it is a serious solo instrument, it can also be great to accompany yourself while singing, or to play with bands and ensembles.

When Should my Child Start Guitar Lessons?

Generally around 6 or 7 years old. Although there are exceptions, the challenge of learning guitar for the very young is that pressing the strings down can quickly get tiring.

Certainly there are exceptions however, and it really depends on how focused and interested the child is. We usually recommend that kids try it for a couple months and see how it goes.

How long does it take to learn to play the Guitar?

You will often see results in a few months, however it’s hard to predict. It really depends on how consistent the student is with classes, and of course with daily practice.

We find that setting clear goals and also participating in recitals tend to boost progress.

Am I too old to take Guitar Lessons?

No. This is a question we frequently get from adult students. Over the years, we have trained hundreds of adult students, from college age, to students in their 90’s.

We train adults who are getting back to guitar after a long hiatus from lessons, as well as adults who are starting the instrument for the first time.

Our instructors really enjoy working with adults, and we even find some adults learn faster than children because they often have longer attention spans and great ability to understand the mechanics of the instrument.


How long of a lesson should I take?

For children 5 to 9 years old, a 45 minute musical lesson is sufficient. For studnets 9+ years and students who have specific musical goals such as playing in orchestra, a full 1 hour lesson is a better investment. For any advanced players a 1 hour lesson is highly recommended.

Do I need my own instrument?
We ask all students to have an instrument in their home, so they can practice during the week. Let us know if you need any recommendations!
Can we split a 60 minute lesson into two lessons?

If you have two students wanting to learn, we are able to divide a 60 minute lesson into two 30 minute lessons.

What happens if I leave for 2 months and come back?

If you are leaving for 30 days or longer, you have the option of holding your time and teacher for when you return by paying your normal monthly tuition.You may also withdraw completely and re- register when you return, however your time and teacher may not be available.

Do you accept the government’s Creative Kids Voucher?

Currently we are only accepting Creative Kids Voucher in NSW. We hope to accept the government voucher in other states soon.

Do I need to travel anywhere for my lessons?

We will come to your home, meaning you don’t have to fight traffic to get to after school lessons.

How can we access the MyMusicStaff student portal?

You can visit to log into the student portal. Email us at to get your login details.


Is my child too young to start music lessons?
Our teachers are experienced in teaching students as young as five. Our enthusiastic teachers ensure every lesson is fun and engaging to keep students interested in pursuing their instrument.
How old should my child be to begin music lessons?

Children as young as five can begin learning their instrument and basic music theory.

We are very experienced in tutoring young children who are complete beginners, and have all the patience and personality needed to engage your child and give them best start in their musical journey.


Is a 45 minute lesson too long for my child?

In our 45 minute lessons, we are able to cover music theory, technical skills alongside the songs we teach. These important aspects of musical education are often skipped over in 30 minute lessons.

How do I know my child is progressing ?

To keep our students learning and progressing, we use the Musical Ladder system. Every 3 months our students take a test with their teacher to make sure they are absorbing the material in the lessons and making progress. Our students love this system as they get to earn cool colourful wristbands and certificates as well as trophies for their achievements! Our teachers also will take the time to conference

What happens if I ( my child ) gets sick and can’t make a lesson one day?

We have group make up classes on the weekend, that are age and level appropriate. You can sign up online for as many as you would like and the make up never expires, meaning you can take the make up class a week or 2 months later.


What are your teachers qualifications?

We are highly experienced in teaching students of all ages and skill levels, and have completed the relevant exams that allow us to teach. All teachers have undertaken a government certified “Working with children” police check.


How does booking lessons work?

We offer weekly lessons, scheduled at the same time each week, with your teacher. Our lessons run throughout the school terms.

How frequently do I need to pay for lessons?

Students have the option of paying per month or term. Invoices are sent to students on a termly basis, so please let us know if you prefer monthly billing.

How does the payment work?

We ask all students to pay via direct debit or credit card. Our teachers will not accept cash. Lessons are prepaid to guarantee your placement.

If you have been trying to learn the guitar on your own, you may be frustrated with your progress. If you are trying to gather information from many different sources, taking a little bit from one teacher and a little bit from another and attempting to piece it all together, you will probably find it difficult to stay focused and on track toward your goal.

The series is designed in a very structured and systematic way. Every aspect is taught in extensive detail and every section progresses from the previous one. You can spend as much time on each section as you need.

Start first with the Essential Theory and Technique course-


The Essential Theory and Technique for Guitar course designed for two main types of people; the beginner guitar player who has no guitar or musical experience and those who can play guitar a little bit but are wanting to understand the music theory behind what they are playing and to improve on their technique.

Music Is A Language

Learning music is like learning a language. Music notes are like letters of the alphabet. When you learn how to combine them, you can create chords, which are like words, and with words you can create sentences and tell stories.

There are some great guitar players who don’t necessarily know all of the theory behind what they are playing, but using the above analogy of music as a language, imagine the potential that is being missed out on by not fully understanding what you are playing. If you were taking a trip to France, you could buy a translation book that could tell you how to say certain phrases in French, such as “Where is the bathroom?” or “What time is it?”, but imagine how much more you could communicate if you were able to construct your own sentences and phrases in French? You could say whatever you wanted without limits. Music is similar; by understanding the “why”, and practicing the “how” you reduce the limitations and open up a world of opportunity to express yourself with your instrument.

The topics you will learn in this course include;

Part 1: Parts of the Guitar

Part 2: The Musical Alphabet

Part 3: Notes on the Neck

Part 4: Neck Diagrams

Part 5: Holding the Guitar

Part 6: Holding the Pick

Part 7: Picking the Strings

Part 8: Left Hand Technique

Part 9: The Chromatic Scale

Part 10: The Spider Exercise

Part 11: The C-Major Scale

Part 14: How Chords Are Made

Part 15: Playing Chords on the Guitar

Part 16: Other Major Scales

Part 17: Other Major Scales on the Guitar

Part 18: The G-Major Chord

Follow up with the Kickstarter course, our most popular course, enjoyed by thousands of students!


The  Guitar Lessons course is designed to start at the beginner level and progress up to intermediate. This series not only teaches you “how” to play, but also focuses on the “why”. We won’t just tell you to “put your fingers here” to play this chord, we want you to really understand why certain notes work together, while others don’t. Because once you understand how scales work, and how chords are made, it will unlock the mystery of music theory and really open up the guitar neck so you can play beyond the basics.

Kickstarter Level One is over 2 and a half hours long and picks up right where the Essential Theory and Technique course left off.

Some of the things you will learn in this course will include Playing with a metronome, learning how to change chords smoothly and quickly, some new Major and Minor chords, proper strumming technique and
