"Experts say that when we play music, both sides of the brain light up simultaneously, creating neural pathways for learning. Participation in music education improves outcomes in all sorts of other areas including vocal, vocabulary and memory skills. ” Professor Brian Caldwell-Dean of Education, Melbourne University www.theguitaracademy.com

I did a guitar workshop for the sick kids at Kidney Health Australia and here's what they said 'Hey Cal, Thanks for such an amazing class and experience introducing our young adults to the wonderful world of the guitar. Our group had such an amazing time and enjoyed your humor, patience and expertise in a class which none of us had ever even held a guitar before! We look forward to coming back for more classes in the future and growing our love of music.'...Great!
