Learn Songs. Develop Skills.

Our priority is to make learning easy for all students so they can develop the skills and knowledge needed to become awesome guitarists. Our main curriculum, The Ultimate Guitar Method, is designed to start at the most basic level possible and teach students music they know and enjoy, by artists like Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Hillsong, AC/DC, Ed Sheeran and Shawn Mendes.

We frequently teach students as young as 5 at William Carey and many stay in tuition all the way through their school career, even when they leave for high school.

Shred Of The Month is a contest we run each term where any enrolled student can learn the required song and upload a video of themselves playing it to win awesome guitar prizes. This includes students learning  at our guitar studio in Sydney, via online video guitar courses and even our Skype Guitar students.

A Course For All Ages & Music Styles

Ultimate Guitar Method

Learn all aspects of guitar playing with a versatile, structured course that’s designed specifically for young beginners.

Comprised of the Five Fundamental Techniques, The Ultimate Guitar Method allows you to learn the music you love in any musical genre, such as rock, pop, jazz, fingerpicking and even neoclassical – yes, that’s a real genre.

It’s quite common for guitarists to only learn one aspect: Songs. But our goal is for all students to progress evenly by learning all of these aspects. Students in The Ultimate Guitar Method are only able to pass grades when they complete all required areas.

No Guitar? No Problem.

We keep several spare guitars of all shapes and sizes for students to use. In fact, we recommend trying out your first lesson before buying a guitar, so we can help you get the size and kind. It’s also important to try and get a guitar with low action – this is how high the strings sit off the fretboard.

What Our Students Say

UGA’s unique approach to teaching guitar has helped my children gain skills and confidence so quickly that their passion for guitar and music in general has grown. I don’t even have to nag to practice because they love what they're learning

Natasha

My son just attended the 1st term of guitar lessons. He has learned so much in that short period. He has totally enjoyed himself and loves it. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn music. The tutor is fantastic

Joe

I have 2 children learning with UGA. They really enjoy the lessons. My older child has been learning with UGA for about 7 yrs & can play almost anything she tries & loves practicing. The teacher is really encouraging & supportive

How It All Works...

  • Lessons are held on Thursdays and on school grounds, in either the Mez or P1.
  • A rotating timetable is used to prevent students missing out on too much of the same classwork.
  • Each week, students are told their time for the following week.
  • After the guitar lesson, students simply return to class and continue with daily activities.
  • Lessons are either Private, Shared or Group.
  • Parents must notify their tutor in advance if any school events interfere with scheduled lessons, such as camps, excursions, tests and exams.
  • Payments are made directly to Ultimate Guitar Academy. Invoices are emailed to parents and payments can be made via Cash, Cheque or EFT (recommended).
