My name is Adam Scott-McGuinness and I’m a guitar and ukulele teacher in Mount Stuart Tasmania. If you’re reading this then you’re probably looking to either start learning an instrument or to increase your exisiting skills. But more importantly, you probably want to feel the enjoyment of creating music (whether your own or others). You’re in the right place.

I tailor my lessons to the individual. The core of my teaching philosophy is that if you don’t enjoy the material you’re learning then practicing is going to feel like a chore. Let’s make practice the part you look forward to! I teach from my home studio in Mount Stuart TAS (the top end of North Hobart, opposite the Blue Gum service station and The Friends’ High School).

I have over nine years experience teaching music to various age groups, ranging from 2 years – 70+ years. I have worked in the public schooling system, music schools and since 2012 my own teaching business. In the early 2000s I completed a bachelor degree in music from the Hobart Conservatorium of Music, and when I’m not teaching I am writing music for video games.

If I sound like perfect teacher for you, give me a call (0408 306 141) or send me an email ( and we can set up a FREE TRIAL LESSON for you. Looking forward to hearing from you. Adam.
