Acabellas offers you the opportunity to explore playing instruments within a supportive group dynamic through


Music Tuition

Sessions are directed for individual learning with sensitivity and care.  A mix of practical, technical and theoretical aspects of music is offered with an interactive approach for students to have direct input on their individual learning outcomes. There is an option to concentrate on one instrument at a time or incorporate a combination in singing, guitar or ukulele lessons.
The journey to find and develop your unique voice is a personal and individual one. Within nurturing and supported sessions, you will be encouraged to discover and develop your vocal abilities using a range of technical exercises and songs.
Whether you are at the beginner or intermediate level, you will advance your skills with a greater focus on rhythm guitar techniques, by learning new chords, developing strumming patterns and finger strengthening exercises. 
The ukulele is a fun and accessible instrument to learn which can yield rapid results.  A wide selection of songs is used to explore playing different chords and develop skills in strumming with some inclusion of musical theory where appropriate.

*Children 30 minute lesson - $27          *Adults 45 minute lesson - $35
