THE TEACHER: KARL TAYLOR
I became obsessed with guitar in my teens like many of my generation, becoming a full time working musician in 1975. By the mid 80’s I was teaching guitar at schools, T.A.F.E’s and a number of major guitar stores in both Sydney and Queensland. I finally opened my own studio in North Sydney in 1996 which ran continuous till 2016. While I continue to teach classes at NSCC, I really look forward to teaching somewhere everyone can learn guitar in the Sydney CBD. I have over 4 decades of practical experience playing and teaching others how to play a wide range of Rock, Pop, Jazz and Blues.
