What others have to say about Sam McAuliffe and Guitar Tuition Hobart:

Sam has been my teacher for 3 months now and I always enjoy my lessons with him. I was interested in learning guitar to accompany my singing, and I feel as though I’ve come a long way in a very short amount of time. Sam has also improved my knowledge of chords and interesting chord progressions for song writing. ~ Sophie, 19

I’d been teaching myself guitar for a few years and then my partner bought me a voucher to get lessons with Sam from Guitar Tuition Hobart. I quickly realised I’d been doing things the hard way! Sam’s holistic approach helped me improve my technique, my listening, and my musicality. Not only was it easier to learn my favourite songs, but Sam taught me how to improvise and compose. Guitar has never been so enjoyable. Thanks Sam! ~ Holly, 28

Will has really enjoyed being taught by you over the years. Even when he’s tired and grumpy from his other activities, he is always perky and happy after a lesson with you. We are delighted that he has developed such a solid musical grounding with you and that he has had a really positive experience of being taught music in the early years. ~ mother of Will, 12

Sam is an excellent teacher and Ashley would not have learnt so much had it not been for Sam’s demeanour and skill teaching young girls such as Ash. ~ father of Ashley, 12

Before I started getting lessons I had been playing guitar for about two years teaching myself from the Internet and from friends. I came to a point where I felt I needed a teacher to help me progress and Sam took my playing to the next level. Sam can get into some intense music theroy, instructions on proper technique, fundamentals, proper use of metronomes or just give thoughts on anything musically. In lessons he has always been very insightful and easy going. Sam helped me realise my goals week to week and for the long term. Over a period of about 3 months he helped me prepare for an audition at Collarts music school where I had to perform one original song and one cover. Sam gave some great advice on song structure and dynamics for my original song. I was accepted into Collarts and started the following week. I highly recommend him whether you’re just starting out or if you want to take your playing to the next level or even if you just need someone to answer any of your guitar/music questions.
Sam’s the man. ~ Greg, 21
