I have been teaching the guitar for the part 7 years with a high level of success. Many of my students have gone on to music schools and have played professionally in Music bands.

Hi, there! My name is Brendon and I'm here to make your dream of playing the guitar come true! I've been teaching private lessons since 2013 and have loved helping my students learn how to read music, bring out the musician in them, and best of all, perform live on stage. I'm friendly, passionate and a music lover and my teaching style is very hands on, patient and structured. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Whether you have had a childhood dream of rocking on a stage or just want to play the guitar to relax in your free time, we can do it together!

I’ve been teaching for the past 7 years with a high level of success. Many of my students in the past have gone on to play for events at their schools and local churches, few have gone on to music schools and some have even gone professional by joining a cover band.

I have a passion for teaching music and I come from a musical family wherein everyone in my family play multiple musical instruments (with my sister playing 6 different instruments!) and everyone in my family being a music teacher at some point in their careers. My mother and sister are full time music professionals teaching music in reputed schools in two different parts of the world. I have been playing the guitar for more than 15 years and have been part of multiple music choirs and have been playing in my Church choirs for a number of years.

Nothing helps me unwind more than just playing the guitar to myself at the end of the day. That is my stress reliever. Nothing makes me happier than making music and I hope to share this gift with you. Looking forward to helping you achieve your guitar playing dreams.

Music. It's not what I do, it's who I am.
