Keeping it local in these uncertain times, Sunday night (28th March) saw over two hours of exciting, top quality guitar music, staged by Auckland Guitar School at Uxbridge.

The Howick-based guitar school’s concert showcased a diverse range of performers playing everything from Jimi Hendrix and the Beatles through to Shawn Mendes and LAB.

The show also boasted a number of great original songs performed and sung by their student songwriters. As ever, it was an exceptionally professional and entertaining show, with some stunning performances.

As owner/teacher Dylan Kay explains: “We offer students lots of performing experiences, where they get to have fun and apply everything they’re learning with us. The little GIG is our “unplugged” version of our legendary BIG GIG showcase – everyone did themselves and the School proud!”

“I hope that those students who played in the show, now have some sense of where this amazing instrument can take you? And if you came to watch, I hope you’ve been inspired to keep working hard and maybe one day be on that stage too?”

Auckland Guitar School is Howick’s biggest guitar school, teaching kids and adults, from total beginners through to advanced level.

“Our focus is on helping each student to get the results they want from their playing, whether they’re just starting out or have been playing for a long time and are stuck in a rut. We make sure the lessons are fun, and that everyone gets really solid foundations to their playing so they can take it wherever they want – whether they’re into rock, pop, acoustic, blues, jazz etc.”

“We know we do something quite different here in the way we focus on helping students to become musicians, not just one-trick guitar players. We have students coming from all over Auckland to learn here, attracted by the unique learning experience and methods that we use.”
