Introductory Lesson

Not sure about the guitar style you want to learn or just want to experience learning at the Glenelg Guitar Studio ?

Why not book in for a 60 minute introductory lesson and see what you can achieve by joining me at the Glenelg Guitar Studio. There’s no obligation and the introductory lesson will be at a reduced fee ($39.50 which is half price). We can meet to discuss your goals and aspirations and establish the best way ahead.

Of course with our younger students we encourage parent participation, not only in the initial lesson, but throughout the entire learning process. Give it a go – there’s nothing to lose.

If you want to book a no-obligation introductory lesson ring or email me now as there are limited places available. Lessons are conducted at Glenelg, South Australia.

    Cheers, Helen

    • Hi Helen,

        My kids want to give me a voucher for my birthday. Could you please organise this for me?
        I will probably only manage a few lessons this year as we are going away in late November. I am interested in lessons in 2023.
        I am available Mon afternoons before 3pm, Wed and Thurs afternoons and evenings.
        Thanks very much, Helen

  3. Hi Leigh I would like to take up your introductory lesson for guitar if you have any room. I really like fingerpicking and would like to learn tabulations. If you could let me know of some times that would be great. Thanks Kay

  7. Hi Leigh

    Keen to have an intro lesson. Have some familiarity with playing the guitar but even more so wanting a creative outlet.

    Please email me when convenient.
    Thank you.

  8. My name is Pat and I believe Jenny Burton spoke to you earlier this week about me.

    Three years ago my site was probably as good as most people of my age. Unfortunately I suffered strokes in both of my eyes within a Period of eight months. The retina, start of oxygen caused my vision to deteriorate rapidly. I have some vision that it is for.

    The past two years has been a massive re-adjustment for me as I come to grips with my new life. I had always wanted to play the guitar And it had been an aim for me to learn in retirement. That was all put on hold but I would like to give it a go.

    I realise there are real challenges if I am to pursue my wish, not least that I am vision impaired , My age ~77 ~, and I do not have a track record in playing a musical instrument. I can understand if you are hesitant to take me on. Nevertheless, I put my request to you; In the hope that you can put me on the right track. I have no aspirations to achieve any hikes, rather to be able to play in my social setting., To be able to play a few simple tunes.

    I live in a retirement village at Somerton Park and my wife is able to drive me to lessons.

    Thank you for considering my request. Look forward to hearing from you

    I apologise for any grammatical errors in this email as the system does not always hear my dictation accurately, but hopefully you will get the gist of what I am saying.

    Kind regards,


    • Hi Pat.
      Thank you for your email.
      I am currently on leave at the moment but will email you over the next week to arrange a 60 minute introductory lesson.
      Thanks again for your email.
      Will be in touch Pat.

  9. Hi Leigh,

    Hope you are well.

    My 13 year old son (Tabe) is super keen to learn guitar and we would love to organise an introductory lesson as soon as possible. He has his own guitar and has never had lessons.

    As he is in school, the best times for us are after 4pm on weekdays.
    He goes to Brighton and we live in Morphettville, so not to far from you.

    Appreciate if you can give me a call to organise.



    • Hi Diana,
      Thanks for your email.
      Will be in touch later today or tomorrow to arrange an introductory lesson.

  10. Hi Leigh.
    Just wanted to let you Austin really enjoyed himself at his introductory lesson and is looking forward to more lessons. He got up early to practice his drills this morning and then again this evening. A very good start. 😊
    Cheers, Michelle

    • Hi Michelle,
      Thank you for allowing me to teach Austin last night.
      I really enjoyed it and was particularly impressed with his focus.

  11. Hi, I’m new to guitar and i’m looking for a place to learn it, I came here but the prices are really high thats my main problem, I don’t want my parents spending so much money on me just for guitar lessons 😦 I’ve tried youtube videos but they seem to make it more difficult because i dont have someone to do the proper show where you hands can be, I can tune it and everything but its just learning the cords (so im hoping to get a poster) but I wish i could of had done it for a lower price :/ Maybe next time

  12. High Leigh,

    Thanks for keeping in touch, regarding ongoing tuition.
    My friend Ryoko is interested to have you assist her with some Bosanova interpretation of a tune “I wish you love”, simplified chords perhaps?. Perhaps just 1 lesson approx 1 hour for this tune. Can you let me know if you are interested & what the cost would be. Ryoko uses an Aria concert acoustic.

    Cheers, Neil Davis

    • Hi Neil,

      Thanks for your email.

      What you have described shouldn’t be a problem.

      The cost for a 1 hour lesson is the usual $63.00 and there is no charge for any behind the scenes work I may have to do.

      Look forward to hearing from Ryoko or you.
