After an initial guitar lesson, fees are payed in blocks of five lessons. At the end of each block, students/parents are provided with feedback on their progress from Harry, along with an invoice for further tuition.

GUITAR LESSONS HOBART TESTIMONIALS
"Harry is exactly the sort of guitar teacher I was looking for. I’ve been playing the guitar on and off for around 15 years. I’ve had a number of teachers across that time and I was really look for someone who has an advanced musical background who would not only teach the guitar but music theory as well. I would highly recommend an aspiring guitar student to Harry."
- Jeremy King
"I am an international student at UTAS. As a complete beginner I started having lessons with Harry about 6 months ago. I've gone from learning the basic musical English vocabularies to having the confidence to play in front of my friends. Every lesson I learn some new chords and finger picking techniques. Now I am be able to play 6 of my favorite songs and read tablature by myself. Harry is a fantastic guitarist, I strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a guitar teacher."
- Joey Jiang
“Harry’s teaching methods are exactly what you want from a guitar teacher. He teaches both guitar techniques and includes theory and knowledge of the guitar in the lesson. As a long term student I have found this to be incredibly helpful as I now understand so much more about the instrument. He is willing to learn a song so that he can teach it to me in the next lesson and breaks down the fundamentals of the song, pulling out different techniques and ways to play the guitar. Harry’s lessons are always enjoyable.”
– Liam Hawkesford
“My primary school age son has been studying guitar with Harry for some time, and is quite enthusiastic about Harry as a teacher and about guitar in general. His skill acquisition progress has been much more rapid than I had expected. Harry is very attentive and encouraging towards my son’s requests to learn certain types of music. I receive regular communication with regards to my child’s progress. I would highly recommend Harry as a guitar teacher to anyone of any age or skill level. I am very pleased as a parent and my son has said, “Mum, give him an A++ review”
– MaryAnn Herbert
""My son has been been having lessons with Harry for some time now. It's fantastic to be able to hear my son talk to me on the way home about the lesson, and what they were working on together. It's just a small thing but it's something I look forward to each week. Harry is great at communicating with me on what they are working on, and seeks feedback on how things are progressing. I have no hesitation in recommending Harry as a guitar teacher to anyone thinking of taking it up."
- Paul Veldhuis
"Excellent guitar tutor. Very friendly, supportive and diligent...highly recommended."
- Sumeet Sharma
"I have had regular lessons with Harry for the past seven months, and he has helped my playing skills improve considerably. He is extremely supportive and has helped inspire me to keep practising and learn new songs. He has also encouraged me to branch out into new forms of music. I have started some amateur stand up comedy over the past and I am hoping to incorporate my guitar playing into my sets. I would strongly recommend Harry as a guitar teacher to any one who wants to learn or improve their guitar playing skills."
- James Scheibner
"Harry is a wonderfully talented guitar teacher. My son is learning to play classical and contemporary pieces and is always eager to show off what he has learned or try something new. Harry is very knowledgable about his craft, which is communicated in a positive, encouraging and caring manner. Each lesson I look forward to what my son has learnt. Thank you Harry!"
- Frances Wadsley
"Harry is an excellent guitar teacher. He designed my lessons around what I wanted to learn while introducing useful theory and techniques. He creates a supportive, relaxed and creative learning environment. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to improve their guitar skills whether it's to play their favourite songs or develop their own compositions. Best music teacher I've had!"
- Victoria Meyer
“Harry is an exceptional guitar teacher and I’d highly recommend him to anyone who is learning the guitar, at any stage of their musical journey!”
– Alan Gogoll
“As a ‘mature age’ student it was excellent to be rewarded with a positive response and continued supportive development of my beginners level skills. Harry’s musical knowledge and technical skill are supported by patience and encouragement – great attributes for creating a positive learning experience of the guitar.”
– Milton Andrews
“My son has been having guitar lessons with Harry for about 18 months. He started as a true beginner and is now an independent guitarist. He happily plays in the company of family and friends across a variety of genres. Harry encourages him to try picking, strumming and chords, as well as teaching him theory and reading of music. Harry brings new music to the guitar lessons as well as teaching songs that my son requests. My son had tried another teacher at the beginning of his learning and had become a bit despondent about his ability, but Harry has changed his outlook and perspective completely.”
– Shelly Hilder
“Always friendly and on time, Harry engages with Oli during their guitar lessons really well. We are extremely happy how what music is important to Oli is used in the lessons. Harry is always prepared for each guitar lesson and knows when and how to push Oli’s skill base.”
– Jeremy & Mardi Ditcham
"My son Harry always ran to the guitar lessons and came out buzzing with excitement about the new song they had both chosen. Harry was a true professional and so encouraging to my son. His positive manner and inspiring teaching assisted my Harry in becoming a competent player."
- Deb Butterworth (mother of student Harry)
