I’ve been learning guitar from Miranda for the past 6 months, with the initial goal of simply learning something new. I now find myself achieving things I would never have thought possible and uncovering skills I didn’t know I had, improving after each and every session. Miranda teaches with that rare and perfect balance of rigour and fun – making sessions both challenging and fulfilling all at once. Miranda also delivers the technical aspects with easy to understand principles and methods, making it feel natural and approachable to just pick up a guitar and start playing. Combine this with a great personality, a great environment (and great coffee) and you need not look any further. Regardless if your guitar goals are either professional or personal, I couldn’t recommend more highly taking classes with Miranda!L e o n F i t z p a t r i c k
My two boisterous, teenage boys, were struggling to maintain an interest in traditional music and teaching methods. Aware of the correlation between academic success and music, I was keen to maintain an element of music in their lives, without the pressure. Miranda has been able to offer us that and much more.
From the outset, Miranda allowed the boys to choose their own songs – from popular music – to work on and learn from – re-igniting an interest in music, that had pretty much disappeared. It is a joy to see the boys pick up their guitar to play for pleasure, rather than having to hound them to practise.
Sometimes the busyness of school and sporting life takes precedence over time on the guitar. For those weeks, Miranda is more than happy to just spend lesson time with the boys continuing to enhance their skills.
Miranda has also been patient enough to foster and harness creativity in the boys – they didn’t even know existed! One of my sons is starting to compose his own song – which may never make it to Number One, but is a hit with us!
We are very fortunate to have access to Miranda and her beautiful music once a week.
Miranda is an awesome teacher. I was self taught so she quickly solved all the technical issues I had. She has heaps of ideas for keeping me motivated to progress and make music a bigger part of my life. She’s patient and I look forward to lessons, even if I haven’t had much practise time.
I decided to try lessons with Miranda even though she was a bit further away from me than some other teachers. Glad I did because she’s a very experienced teacher and her studio has a really relaxing vibe about it. Even though I only wanted to learn a few songs to play during a camping holiday, I kept up the lessons and actually feel like I’m becoming a musician now which I’m stoked about. And she’s even getting me to play lead guitar solos!! Thanks Miranda!!!!
