Teaching since:

My name is Van Larkins, I am an Australian guitar tutor and professional recording/touring artist signed to Candyrat Records USA.

I have recently moved to Nashville in October 2018, and since then have toured California and played several shows in Chicago, Nashville, Florida and Utah.

I am very passionate about teaching, and have taught successfully at private music schools, public schools, private tuition and online (Skype) lessons.
If you or you child would like to develop skills on the guitar, learn your favorite song or just try it out, now is the perfect time, and I'd love to hear from you!

Van is an absolute inspiration and encouraged me to keep trying even when I felt I would never get it right. Thank you so much for your guidance and insight throughout my lessons with you.

I had a quick lesson with Van on composing unique opening tuning arrangements. He does a great job of explaining things in a way that any level can understand!
