Menai Guitar School
High Quality Tuition
Boutique Quality Music Lessons
Based on the edge of the Sutherland Shire, Menai Guitar School offers high quality music education that is tailor made to fit every student. We understand that every student learns differently and needs an approach that works for them. At Menai Guitar School we have developed material that is designed to engage the student with the goal of building their skills and understanding of music.
A great musician does not necessarily make a great teacher.
But a great teacher will make great musicians!
- Know what they are talking about and have real world experience.
- Communicate at the student’s level.
- Be patient and understanding of the student.
- Inspire and challenge their students to greater heights.
Our teaching staff have been carefully selected with these four criteria in mind. We have a policy that if we do not have a qualified teacher for a particular instrument we will not offer lessons for that instrument. No student teachers, no guitar teachers teaching drums etc. Only the best teacher for the right job.

His skills as a guitarist have been used in original, cover and tribute acts which range from small club/pub shows, worship bands to festivals, private showcases, corporate events, weddings, theatres and musicals. Each of these have provided Chris with essential experience and understanding which he transforms into a rich, fun, positive and effective teaching environment for all ages.

When it comes to teaching, Warren is committed to providing a personal and fun teaching experience for each student that will equip them to confidently play and enjoy music in a live band situation. A simple approach to learning, with content that is 100% useful.
Carolyn enjoys sharing her musical knowledge but especially loves teaching people to sing as it is an individual art. She loves the fact that no two voices are the same and takes the approach of working from where the student is at in producing sound and taking them on a journey of discovering what their voice can do. Despite the fact that her early training was in classical singing she now takes a more contemporary approach in teaching by still emphasising a good forward placement but is also aware of contemporary inflections and tonal variations according to the style of song.
As a part of our teaching program we encourage our students to show the world what they have learnt. We run an annual performance night and also give students opportunities to shoot performance videos of the songs they have been learning.
