Our guitar lessons have great range, thanks to the set of teachers we have at the Academy:

Lessons are available from first steps to advanced levels. We take alot of care to help you learn music you listen to and connect with, whatever style that may be: From Indie to Rock, Pop, Jazz, Classical.

We also help aspiring songwriters with their own journey and writing process

I dug out the guitar I bought 40 years ago, dusted it off, restrung it and found my “Book 1 – Beginner”. “I remember what to do! This will be easy! I don’t need lessons!” Guess what – I found out there is a bit more to this, to say the least. So I decided to commit to RMA and with my teacher’s care and expert guidance, I am feeling like I actually have proper musical ability, which is improving each week.
In addition, I am tapping into the genres I love, thereby making the experiences more enjoyable.
I thoroughly recommend RMA as a relaxing learning place for aspiring musicians and artists.

Richmond Music Academy is amazing! I set a goal of learning to play the guitar and sing in 3 months, so I could play a song for my wife at our wedding - a seemingly impossible task. I couldn’t have done it without you guys; it was always encouraging and I had a great teacher - he made it possible and we had heaps of fun along the way!
