Helping Adults 40 And Over To Play At Campfires And Parties...

Acoustic Guitar Lessons
For the "classic" older strummer who wants to sit knee to knee and shoulder to shoulder with good friends, playing and singing great songs at campfires, pubs and parties... Or wherever you travel unplugged...
Gold Coast School of Guitar was started in 2011 by Allen Hopgood for adults over 40 to gain confidence playing music for others.
Two lesson programs are offered: GC Guitar Club Membership, and Lessons A La Carte.
GC Guitar Club Membership is a package deal and Lessons A La Carte are individually scheduled lessons
The GC Guitar Club Membership is limited to 30 members at a time, to give you all the support attention and training you need.

"Really happy with my lessons and my progress, learning the basics correctly from the start, eliminating my bad habits. Especially happy with the way you give me options on how to get around my problem areas."
Darren Jones
"From day one, Allen has been so patient and encouraging with me, and continually instilled in me the idea that learning guitar is less about natural talent and almost all about consistent practice and personal will to learn."
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 has gained a loyal following of adult students over 40 who enjoy his comprehensive lessons and relaxed, easy-going persona.
With an aptitude for helping beginners quickly play songs, and then into casual performers, Allen has developed a path that teaches you how to play songs with others so you can quickly become part of the jam - playing the guitar the way you have always wanted to.
Yes! I want to speed up my results and learn everything I need to play well now.
