Term 4 Drawing to a close

Well another term and another year is drawing to a close. Thanks to all students and their families for another great year of teaching guitar! Regular lessons will finish up on Friday the 8th of December for the holiday season, and resume again on Monday 22nd January. I will be available for casual lessons at various times in January and December – send me an email to rob@robsguitarschool.com if you would like to book in a time!

Also guitar lesson gift certificates are a perfect gift idea…email me on as above if you would like to enquire!

In the meantime, I wish all students and their families the best of the festive season, and look forward to seeing you all again in the new year.



Teaching Resumes for the 3rd Term

I have been having a well earned break during he school holidays…but now looking forward to teaching resuming on Monday 10th July. This term will go through until Friday 15th September.

New Invoicing Look
During the holidays I have been busy trying to set up some new software to manage my teaching timetable and invoicing. So you will notice a change in the way invoices look! It’s possible that some things might get overlooked in the transition, so if there’s a problem with the invoice, lesson time or term fees, please send me an email and I will resolve it!

Make up lessons
The new system should also make it easier to organise and coordinate make up lessons. My policy on make up lessons is that I am happy to reschedule a lesson if an alternative time can be found…however I do request at least 24 hours notice, so that your vacated slot can be offered to someone else. Up till now, I have coordinated this through texts, emails and phone calls. With the new software, it will be managed through an online student portal! More details when it’s all up and going!

Family Accounts
For families with two or more students taking lessons, my practice has been to issue an invoice for each student, with the second one payable halfway through the term. With the new system, this has proved a step too far for my computer skills, so for those families, please feel free to split the invoice into two payments, with the second one due prior to week 6. I will issue you a new statement with balance remaining on receipt of your first payment!

Fees for this Term
Fees are $38 per lesson when paid by the lesson, or $31 per lesson when paid by the term. These fees are very competitive for quality professional tuition, especially if you take advantage of the generous discount for paying up front for the term.

So welcome back to all returning students, and a welcome to new students.


Happy New Year

After a well earned break over the christmas and New Year holidays, we are all set to begin teaching again for term 1, full of enthusiasm for music and guitar! Lessons commence on Monday 23rd January. So if you are looking for affordable and professional guitar lessons in The Gap or Samford, get in touch. I would love to help you in your journey of musical discovery with the guitar! Rob’s Guitar School will be celebrating its 7th birthday this year, underlying my commitment to providing quality long term tuition in The Gap, Samford and surrounding localities of Brisbane.

So be in touch….
