MUSIC & GUITAR WORKSHOP
Boost your playing, jamming & songwriting skills
MUSIC & GUITAR WORKSHOP
Making music is the most fun way to advance your playing
I developed this Workshop to inspire beginning to intermediate guitarists to advance their playing in the most musical way possible.
This 4-hour long Workshop sits right in between a Masterclass and a Workshop. I will play various live songs using my looping set-up. We will touch upon creating your sound, discover the power of looping, explore songwriting and learn to get into the groove. We'll talk gear and techniques and ultimately, we will create & record a song together on the fly.
The best part is that there is no need to prepare, just bring your guitar, some inspiration & enjoy!

The Masterclass takes place in Baringo's cosy 30 seat cinema in the beautiful Macedon Ranges. Baringo is within easy reach from Melbourne and located right next to Gisborne train station. The travel time from Melbourne Southern Cross is less than 1 hour by train and 50 minutes by car. If you wish to combine lunch or dinner with the workshop, check out the menus here. It is recommended to make a reservation for this popular bar & bistro.
Small and spacious. The 30 seat cinema is a perfect location for a Workshop. Big enough to make a noise, small enough to be connected. And with COVID in mind, we can adjust the Masterclass capacity between 10 and 30 participants should the need arise. Just relax, grab a drink and enjoy the musical journey.
