The Method

The Cliff Lynton Guitar Institute remains committed to our outstanding teaching method that is used at many leading schools across Australia. As such we have developed our own syllabus. Whether an absolute beginner or advanced guitar player, my method is graded so that the individual is always progressing.

Our method offers styles for the classic, modern and progressive contemporary guitarist. This ensures a strong well rounded solid musician capable of playing and working anywhere in the world.

Past students are now teaching at Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) and performing live across Australia, America and Europe.

We cover all grades of AMEB (Australian Music Examination Board) and cater for WAAPA (West Australian Acadamy of Performing Arts) entrance exams.
