I am a professional guitarist with international touring experience, endorsements, and qualifications in theory and composition. I have been teaching private lessons to students aged 8 to 65 for several years. Tailoring the lessons to reach the your goals, we can explore areas such as learning your favorite songs, writing your own, while forming a solid basis of musical knowledge, and the tools you will need to grow into a capable and fluent musician.

From my experiences in independent bands, I can also offer consultations and advice on soliciting endorsements, creating press kits, writing press releases, and other ways to promote your album.

About Sally G.

I grew up in New Zealand playing all sorts of instruments before focusing on guitar. My guitar took me all around the country touring with bands, and then eventually to the USA, where I was fortunate enough to tour extensively throughout the States and Canada as a session player. Since then, I have released an album with my own band, picked up endorsements with my favourite companies, and shared the stage with many of my musical heroes.

As a teacher, I love to help students begin their own musical journey and find their voice. From the beginning, I want to help give you the tools you will need to express yourself on your instrument, and can tailor the lesson plan to suit your goals and interests. I have taught students from ages 7 to 65, both as a private teacher, and as the in house instructor for a guitar store.

In NZ, I completed the Royal Schools of Music Theory certification, and Cambridge AS Level Music.
