Have you ever been frustrated by the fact that you may live in a small town with no guitar teachers, or the ones that are there just do not crack the kind of guitar player you want to be? Fret not! No, in fact you’ll be doing a lot of fretting :-)~ Skype is here!
Teaching children is an art unto itself as they are easily distracted and can be horribly bored if the teacher is not on their wavelength. Tony takes children from the age of eight, making sure the lessons are full of smiles and fun. He has two daughters who both play the guitar and has a wealth of experience with children.
Tony has an incredibly versatile understanding of a variety of different styles of music that encompass most popular forms of music today including an insight into more oblique styles. Go here for a full list of all that is available to learn.
If you have a member of your family or a friend who you know has been yearning to play the guitar, give them a great kickstart by purchasing 4 gift lessons with Tony, they will thank you forever...

'I keep meaning to tell you again how grateful we are that Dylan is having this fantastic opportunity to learn from you. He is playing so beautifully, and he is absolutely enthralled by his music...largely due to your influence on him as his teacher. You are having a huge, positive impact on my boy, helping him to access his soul. Thank you so much for this wonderful gift' – Lisa Jeannes
On Sat the 7th of July, Cox will be hosting two workshops at his home in Sedgefield, Western Cape. The first is in the morning and the second is in the afternoon of the same day.
