Guitar Club

Our new Guitar Club is the Central Coast’s first comprehensive and cost-effective approach to learning guitar in a group environment.

The program is aimed at students in Years 5 and 6 (aged 10-12) regardless of their prior music experience or knowledge. Guitar Club members learn to play the guitar in small groups on a weekly basis. The cost-effective music lessons will include group tuition and ensemble learning environments. 

“This structured approach to learning enables these students to learn how to play the guitar as well as becoming part of a team that learns, grows and performs together,” said Central Coast Conservatorium of Music Artistic Director, Patrick Brennan.

“The aim of the Guitar Club is to create guitarists on the coast who read and play music while having fun with their friends,” said Central Coast Conservatorium of Music Artistic Director, Patrick Brennan.

Additionally Guitar Club members can also attend guitar classes where they can learn to build upon the skills they are learning in their group lesson.

The Guitar Club runs in small groups (five maximum) in the afternoon with CCCM’s expert guitar teachers Guy Strazz and Steve Smilie – both highly skilled teachers who play and teach all music styles. You can read about our guitar teachers HERE
