Why hunt for Melbourne guitar classes through Stars & Catz?
1. FREE matching to the right guitar tutor in Melbourne!
Getting your Melbourne guitar tuition away to an ideal start is extremely important to us. Our staff will put expert care and attention into determining the right Melbourne guitar teacher for you, based on the guidelines you provide.
The fact is, if you desire electric guitar lessons but end up getting an acoustic guitar tutor, you’re not going to be completely happy. On top of that, if you enjoy sonatas and desire classical guitar tuition but then find yourself with a rocker as a teacher, it’s not going to work. We realize that and that is why we will not match you with educators who simply would not work.
2. Tuition tailored to you.
In what way would you like to learn guitar? Do you have your heart set on learning to read music, or would you prefer to get started using guitar tabs and chords? Perhaps you’d rather concentrate on either electric guitar, or acoustic guitar—or both! No matter what you’re looking for, your specially chosen guitar teacher will come up with a learning strategy especially for you.
3. We deal with all of the legwork for you
You don’t have to phone any teachers or wait to see if anyone returns your calls. Simply let us do the work for you and we will do our matching process and let you know when we have located the tutor you are looking for. We’ll then have them call you personally.
4. Want to learn at home? No trouble at all
When you’ve got a set up music area in your own home and that is where you’d like to have guitar tuition, we’ll limit our search to peripatetic guitar tutors who offer tuition in students’ houses.
Stars & Catz Music Teacher Network features travelling guitar tutors, in addition to those who have created their very own studio. All of the Melbourne guitar teachers within our network are expert, patient and understanding, and those that provide home based lessons are forever in high demand.
(Note: on occasion, that demand will mean that in-home tuition isn’t a possibility.)
5. Sign-up charges and concealed fees? They do not exist
There’s not anything more to pay for apart from your guitar tutoring. Absolutely no fees—ever.
6. Long term agreements or obligations aren’t in our vocabulary
We promise no locking you in and no scary contracts. The world has enough of those already!
7. Study complete songs
Have fun mastering full songs, not merely the bits and pieces. Because no one likes having to quit a great song just before the best part!
8. Theory that makes sense
Go over as little music theory as it takes to de-mystify the guitar.
We don’t want you to suddenly get the feeling you’re entering your Degree in Enhanced Music Theory (that hurts).
9. You will have a bucket load of fun
Your experienced Melbourne guitar teacher will help you get great results, and make sure you’re enjoying yourself at the same time.
10. You decide
Where did your inspiration originally come from? That’s a really good place to aim for, and your Melbourne guitar tutor will be there for you all the way.
11. Go past relying on sheet music
Just imagine being able to improvise, any place, anytime. Your Melbourne guitar tutoring can help you train your ear, open up your knowledge and increase your confidence.
Do you have a dream around this? Maybe you are one of those people who would like to head off to a family get together with your acoustic guitar and then impress everybody by jamming with another musical person in the group? Or are you a blues lover who wants to participate in your local improvised blues night at a local pub. Simply carry your electric guitar and amplifier and then get into it!
12. Correct technique
Nip any problems in the bud with a real, live tutor who can identify any sneaky bad habits that may be popping up in your guitar lessons. All the ‘how-to’ books or videos on the planet cannot compare with the full attention of your experienced Melbourne guitar tutor.
13. All levels are looked after
We offer guitar education for beginners, intermediates and also advanced students.
A question we are asked routinely is which sort of guitar and style of learning will best suit a beginner or a child. The reply is that for everyone over ten years old (including adults) any kind of guitar is good in the beginning. Passion is such a major part of guitar that we would be nutty to advise that someone who contacted us regarding acoustic guitar tuition needs to actually start with learning classical guitar, or that a person who desires electric guitar lessons needs to actually start with acoustic. Having said that, for the kids younger than ten, we’d advise either a classical or electric guitar. This is simply because they are actually much gentler on the fingers than an acoustic.

All of the above, plus more, will help us figure out which teacher is best for you and your learning needs.

So let the Melbourne guitar instruction begin! Your initial class is like a ‘getting to understand one another’ session between you and your teacher. We realize that a strong rapport with your teacher is among the most essential factors to fun and rewarding guitar lessons.
It’s normally very fun, as you plan with each other what mountains you’re going to climb ascend. After that, you are on your way.
As part of the Stars & Catz customer service, we will email you after the first of the guitar classes to ask just how it went. If your Melbourne guitar tuition wasn’t what you had expected, we’ll do everything we can to solve any challenges immediately, and make sure you’re kept moving on the path to utter guitar mastery!
