Our resident guitar teacher is Mr Juan Aravena.

Juan, originally from Chile, lives locally with his wife and children, has a “working with children” permit and teaches at a couple of local schools. He is an accomplished guitarist and can navigate most styles from classical to modern. He has the patience of a saint, a quality very handy when teaching young children.

His fees are $30.00 for a half hour lesson. This is paid in ten lesson blocks, either cash or cheque, as we don’t have credit card facilities at the music school.

Juan teaches in a small studio at the rear of the shop.

With the popularity of the Ukulele showing no signs of slowing down, Juan also takes on beginner ukulele students. Call the shop to find out what time slots are available to make a booking.

Upwey Music offers guitar lessons.
