Teaching the real tricks of the trade!


Extremely good teacher, good communicator, breaks the guitar down to make it simple to learn. Laid back sessions while pushing your limits on the guitar each week. Would highly recommend. 5 stars

Dan taught my 2 kids guitar for a number of years , he has an amazing teaching technique, a lot of patience, and most importantly he took an interest in my kids music interests and devised the lessons around songs that they wanted to learn which kept them motivated to practice and learn the guitar. I would highly recommend Dan. 5 stars

Absolutely! With the level 5 lockdown we are currently doing online lessons only.

Our prices are listed here.

Yes! We have taught loads of guitar and piano students who have never played an instrument before. We will take you through everything you need to know to play like your music heroes! You won’t stay a beginner for long.

For guitar and bass guitar we generally start at 9 years old and for piano we start at about 6 years old. However we have made exceptions in the past.

We are located in Glanworth Fermoy County Cork Ireland. You can see the precise location of our teaching studio by clicking here.

Actually yes. The majority of the lessons take place from 4.15pm up until about 10pm leaving the afternoon slots almost always free. So for example you could take a lesson at 2pm on Wednesday on week 1 and then 2pm on Thursday on week 2 and so on. The people who work shifts usually text every week once they know what shift they’re on.

Not at all, I have guitars here that you are more than welcome to use for the first lesson! I can then give you a €5 voucher for a guitar purchase in Tom Baylors music shop in fermoy.

I’m asked this question so much I created a separate webpage to help you. Click here for details.

We don’t do house call lessons.
