Bust through common learning challenges with a modern guitar lesson program that gives you all the support, training and attention you need.


So you've decided to learn how to play songs on your guitar. Just for fun, after work, around the campfire or at parties.
However, with all the information that's found on a single page of TAB, or in 'easy' guitar videos, it's easy to feel lost, stuck, learning 'stuff' that doesn't have you playing songs...
When all you want to do is play songs on your guitar for fun...
It may surprise you that you don't need to learn a bunch of theory, a ton of scales or how to read music... 
All You Need Is A Modern, Effective Approach To:
• Changing chords
• Playing good strumming patterns and keeping good rhythm
• A great set of songs to play, and
• Know exactly what you need to do to practice them
Type in your favourite song into a search engine and you will see dozens of video lessons, song charts and/or TAB to get you going.

Anyone can do that.

The problem is, most people don't need help with what chords to play or where to place their fingers.

What they need help with is...

What's NOT written down on the pieces of music.

The things that make you play the songs well.

And it's not strumming patterns and a ton of theory.

The good news is, there's a simple solution to the above to help you play your favourite songs.
Here at Gold Coast School of Guitar, I have the belief that it's better for you to be taught how to fish for a lifetime - not just fed for a day.

And I do this by going beyond traditional guitar lessons so that you can play ALL the songs you want with guitar training. A modern approach to help you play your favourite songs.
If you are at the point where you need help so that you can play songs better and have more fun playing your guitar then Book A Free 60-Minute Introductory Session.
"I tried to learn guitar many years ago but became very frustrated after trying three different teachers... I have been there now for four and a half years and have found Allen to be an excellent teacher...Your age doesn't matter, if you want to have fun and learn a new and enjoyable life skill... give Allen a call. You won't be sorry." - Jim P. GC Guitar Club Member
  • You're an adult (I currently don't teach kids and teens as they learn differently)
  • You're a complete beginner
  • A near beginner
  • Been at it for a little while but still can't play songs
  • You have your own acoustic or. electric guitar (if you would like some help with knowing what to look for when you purchasing a guitar, click here and we can talk about that )
  • You are wanting a solid foundation of skills to confidently play great folk, blues, acoustic rock, classic rock, country, pop, heavy rock, grunge, indie and alternative songs
 (I recommend if you want to play jazz, metal, classical or funk guitar styles, search for a guitar teacher dedicated in that style as it requires a different discipline and teaching method)
Guitar lesson training is results-driven and recommended for any guitar hobbyist so that you can play songs after work, at weekend jams, around campfires, at parties, or gatherings over a glass of wine.

If this is the right fit for you...

Allen Hopgood has been playing guitar since 1983. He has shared the stage with some of Australia's biggest musical talent including, Jimmy Barnes and The Radiators, plus U.S mega-stars - Kiss.
Teaching professionally since 2011, Allen is committed to his craft. Every year he spends countless hours and invests thousands of dollars into training on becoming a better teacher for you. Experience which can solve your problems in an instant. 

Even if you find another teacher that has some results, he or she will maybe know how to do a part of the process, but they won't have had to personally adapt it for the individual who is sitting, feeling frustrated, thinking they're not as good as the person next to them, playing the same thing.
They won't have had to deal with many people of various playing levels at the same time. They won't have known how to get a result so everyone in the room walks out with a huge smile on their face... all playing a song... feeling great they can do so.
This is what it takes. Because there's a lot of stuff out there for playing guitar. And people don't care how great you think you are, all they care about is the results you can help them create. And that's where Allen Hopgood makes a difference.
With an aptitude for helping beginners to play along with songs in 30 minutes and then into casual performers, Allen has gained a loyal following following of students over 40 who enjoys his comprehensive lessons and relaxed, easy-going persona.

Today Allen only lets the most suitable people into his GC Guitar Club. Again, this sort of experience is what will protect you too and help change your guitar playing dramatically.

Many people love what Allen Hopgood does. People like Lisa Seredycz – who achieved playing along with a song in 30 minutes after spending 4 years with another guitar teacher learning everything but songs...

People like Darren Jones – who achieved amazing changes to his physical ability to play the instrument but also concentration levels and the growth of his musical mind.

People like Jim Page who achieved playing and practicing breakthroughs after 30 years of one and off playing.

These people have certain characteristics. They're hard working. They don't make excuses. They're coachable. And they're committed to transforming their lives.

So if you have some or all of these qualities, then Allen Hopgood knows how to get you to the outcome you want. Allen offers you complete transparency, as someone who help their students LIVE weekly, answering every question that comes their way. Allen has a string of tools that you can use to get to where you want to go. Which means you can start playing songs as soon as today. 

So rest assured you that no matter what others promise you, when it comes to creating the results you really want, Allen's help will get you there faster. Best of all, everything is made simple to understand.
"Hi Allen, Had to share, had a day off today and practiced guitar for 2 or 3 hours, then my husband jumped on drums and we played about 6 or 7 songs together through the amps and it actually worked :-) Pumped haha. Thanks for being an awesome teacher. - V. McLelland GC Guitar Club Member
