The Guitar Dojo provides a unique system of learning for juniors that combines the best of private guitar lessons with small group classes. For older students private lessons are also an option.

All students get unmatched levels of support/latest in tech.

Operating as usual


Big congratulations to two of our young students who sat their Rockschool exams late last year. We have been very patiently waiting for results but can now report that both Avi and Arya achieved the highest possible grade of Distinction (90+/100)

Well done to you both! πŸ”₯

Be careful out there 😏


Once again social media has taken a big back seat for us in 2021 as COVID made other more direct forms of communication a priority , but we just wanted to drop in and wish all followers and members past and present a very happy Christmas and a much more normal 2022.

We would like to acknowledge the support and progress of everyone over the course of the last year. In particular , well done to Callan who achieved great results in his Rockschool exam and Arya and Avi who sat exams and can reliably expect very good results also.

And of course please take note of the public service announcement below. πŸ˜‡


All at the The Guitar Dojo would like to wish our members, friends and followers a very Merry Christmas and a much, much better 2021.

Apologies for the lack of activity here but pretty much anything outside of serving our existing members to the best of our ability has taken a big back seat since March 2020. No social media , marketing etc..... We will try to be a little bit "louder" in 2021 :)

For those thinking about starting in 2021 , we do have a few times remaining so feel free to reach out via Facebook or [email protected]


The Guitar Dojo is taking a short break and lessons will resume ONLINE after Easter. In the meantime we are still available via the app to provide support to all members. Thanks for your support and we look forward to seeing you soon.



This is for Simone who requested a return of Friday Funnies...........we all need it I think πŸ˜‰πŸŽΈ


Friday funny.......


We would like to extend a warm welcome to our new members this week - Jay , Stephanie and Isabel :)


We would like to extend a warm welcome to new members that have joined us over the last week or few .......Cara, Cam,Emily , Emmet,Kyle,Makayla,Mario,Shintaro, Tina, Tobias and Zac!!! It's great to have you with us and we look forward to working with you over 2020. We also appreciate our existing members spreading the word :)


We haven't done a Friday Funny in a while ,so.........:)


A warm welcome back to our members who are resuming lessons this week.

To celebrate the New Year we are happy to announce that we now have a relationship with Arobas Software and are part of the Guitar Pro educators program which provides discounts to our members. So if any of our intermediate-advanced students are interested in purchasing Guitar Pro (the gold standard in guitar notation software and something we use to produce some of our lessons) , then don't go ahead and pay the retail price of around $100 AUD. ($US 70)

If you let us know , we can arrange directly with the company for a 50% discount ! 🎸🎸🎸



We would like to wish all our students+families, friends and followers a very happy Christmas and new year ahead.

2019 has been a year where (to quote Bill Lawry) "it's all happening" - from our move to Danaher Drive for many of our students , the new ukulele program for the wonderful residents at Arilla Retirement Village , licensing the G4 guitar curriculum and getting our app up and running without too many hitches.

We have enjoyed the continued support of existing students and met plenty of great new people (and families) during 2019.

Thanks again and we look forward to a great 2020 .

All students will be contacted directly over the next 24 hrs but ,in short , we take a break from 23rd December and resume lessons on Monday 6th January.

If anyone needs any assistance over the break , please send Brent a message through the app and we will help you out!

Kickstart my Heart Misheard Lyrics

On to more positive topics - and thanks to Simone Stowe for the heads up - we might be some sort of chance of seeing Motley Crue/Def Leppard and Poison out here in 2020/2021. If Vince Neil can recapture this sort of form them I am THERE!

Kickstart my Heart Misheard Lyrics EDIT: Cant believe this blew up like it did hahah!!! Thank you all!! original vid:


Tough week in the Aussie music scene with Greedy from Mental as Anything and Stuart Fraser from Noiseworks passing away. Both local legends but Stuart had a real influence on me as a young kid - not a technical player but he possessed something that is a big part of being a "great" and that is a unique sound/tone and sense of rhythm. That debut Noiseworks album to me had a real atmosphere and , despite some strong material on subsequent albums they never beat it IMHO. R.I.P.


Friday (un)funny - KISS cancel their Australian tour . :(

Friday funny ...........probably not the best backdrop of all time.


Yes you can :)

Kids and Guitar Lessons Pt 1 - The Benefits of Music Education.

The first in a series of Guitar Dojo blog posts on kids and guitars.

Kids and Guitar Lessons Pt 1 - The Benefits of Music Education. This is the first in a series of short articles that will cover a range of topics relevant to kids guitar lessons...........everything from a buying guide to so


The promised blog series on buying guitars for kids shouldn't be too far away - too much admin and not enough guitaring for me this week :)

In the meantime ........with AFL finals into full swing , we reckon a guitar-related Friday Funny featuring Meatloaf might be warranted. We acknowledge that nothing will ever top his 2011 AFL Grand Final performance so here's that too :)


Friday funny.........priorities!


Friday funny - hopefully this won't get me into strife 😬

Our Teaching Philosophy

The Guitar Dojo is a specialist guitar school that prides itself on quality content and support.
We love teaching and playing songs but also invest heavily in making sure that you have the right information and support to understand the instrument and one day hopefully create your own music. Each student at The Guitar Dojo receives complimentary hard copy materials , premium practice app subsciptions and a dedicated log in to our online app where their personal practice material is available for viewing and download. Brent will also respond directly to questions via the platform. No need to spend most of the next lesson talking about questions that have built up during the week!

Guitar/music lessons



5/9 Danaher Drive
South Morang, VIC

General information

The Guitar Dojo welcomes students of all ages but has a particular passion for working with beginner to intermediate level guitarists that want to learn the guitar step-by-step via a fun but well structured plan. That way we can get things on the right path at an early stage.

The absolute beginner will learn the basics and develop the ability to play simple songs but our end goal is to produce a guitarist that understands what they are playing and can improvise or even write their own songs. So music theory as it relates to the guitar becomes a more important part of the program over time.

Our unique offering is not just about face to face lessons either. Each student has a dedicated web based portal where they can see lesson summaries, download or view handout material and answer relevant quiz questions. The portal also allows students and parents to ask Brent questions directly so that there is always support available between lessons..

Our Music Lab is a key part of each lesson , where students are exposed to gamified learning of music concepts such as pitch, rhythm and general ear training.
