WHY HAVE GUITAR LESSONS WITH LACHLAN HORNE?

If you have been teaching yourself guitar for some time now and made the decision that you want to get serious then now is a good time to get in touch for some online private guitar lessons. Very often guitar players will approach me because they have been working things out for themselves for some time but have come to the point where they have hit a brick wall and are in need of some serious direction and knowledge. The time has come to understand how it all works and how you can make more of the skills you developed – that is where I can help you out. But why me you ask? Well, I have been teaching and playing guitar professionally for more than thirty years, I have had my playing and my own music used for radio ads, computer games, online slot machines and a rollercoaster ride as well as other media presentations and videos. I have released three solo albums to date, two of which feature the talents of Primal Scream and Gary Moore’s drummer Darrin Mooney and have taught in schools, colleges, and more private lessons than I could possibly count. In short, I know my stuff and have had more than a lifetime’s experience at knowing what is expected of a professional guitar player in every performance situation. Plus, I already like you and want to meet you – because just like you I love playing guitar too!
