A Little About Me...

Simon Candy Guitar InstructorI have been teaching the guitar for over 18 years, and have taught many people to become the guitar players they want to be. Over this time I have continued to refine and better my teaching skills in order to become a more effective guitar teacher for my students.

I am V.I.T. registered (Victorian institute of teaching), and have taught guitar in several schools including Xavier College, Ruyton Girls' School, and Loreto Mandeville Hall Toorak.

In addition to this, I have taught the guitar at Ron Leigh's Music Factory, Coleman School of Music, and am currently running my own guitar school in the Springvale and Keysborough area.

Over the time I have taught all ages and levels of the guitar, gaining the experience and knowledge that is necessary to teach the guitar effectively.

I have been in my own guitar teaching business for 7 years and am currently studying with master guitarist and mentor Tom Hess. Tom is among the top guitar teachers in the world today, and under his guidance I am learning to teach, coach and mentor my own students in even more effective ways. I also travel to Chicago once a year to receive more personalised training from Tom Hess in regards to teaching the guitar.

In addition to my teaching, I have played in many bands across a wide range of styles including rock, blues, and jazz. Through these bands, I have played many gigs in a variety of places, including regular pub gigs, and corporate functions, weddings etc.
