Owen enjoys passing on his knowledge and has a few spaces for new students. Primarily Owen teaches guitar but also teaches harmonica and has run songwriting workshops at the Auckland Folk Festival. Most importantly, the lessons are tailored to you - your interests, your abilities and the songs you like.

Best of all? You don't have to read music to be a great guitar player!

Your lessons can include any or all of the following:

  • Basic chords
  • Use of a capo
  • Songwriting techniques
  • How to use a PA system
  • Microphone technique
  • Basics of lyrics
  • Song structure
  • Performance tips

If you have particular songs you want to learn, bring them on an iPod, CD or even tape and Owen can work out the chords for you.
