Top Quality Music Tuition

Sam Monty Music Tuition

When Sam was just 16, he began teaching his then guitar teacher's surplus students. He has been honing his craft as a guitarist and overall musician since the young age of 10 through to his current age of 26, all the while teaching and refining his skills as a teacher. He was awarded the "Best Jazz Guitar Player of the Year" award while completing his undergraduate degree in Jazz Performance on guitar at the University of Auckland. Throughout the time of his own learning and honing his craft, he has also been able to enjoy sharing his knowledge with keen students and pupils wishing to learn Acoustic or Electric Guitar. He has also enjoyed sharing his enthusiasm and passion over the years for Drums, Electric Bass Guitar, Ukulele and even beginner Piano. Sam has been employed by many top New Zealand private music schools but now prefers to teach privately. Sam would love to hear from you if you are interested in discovering the joys of learning a musical instrument. He would also love to hear from you if you are already quite advanced as a guitarist but have gaps in your knowledge or would like to take your playing even further. Sam has experience singing and playing from years of covers gigs with his band for which he can teach you the skills and coordination required.
