Welcome to Simon Lane Music, I am a professional musician working on the Gold Coast and Brisbane area. I have been teaching guitar for over 20 years and working professionally as a session player and performer for the past 18.
I offer guitar lessons, entertainment for functions and events and am available to hire as a session player for studio or live projects.
I trained in the UK at the Brighton Institute of Modern Music (BIMM), the UK's leading modern music academy, where i gained a BA Hons in professional musicianship. During my time at BIMM I studied all styles of music with a lot of emphasis on technique and theory.
Since graduating I have been involved in a variety of professional projects including founding and touring a successful British Band that went onto play many of the country top festivals including the O2 wireless festival in Hyde Park London supporting top acts such as the Kaiser Chiefs and Guilfest supporting Madness. We were also listed as one of the top 10 unsigned acts by O2 in 2007 and featured in Music Week, the UK Music Industry Magazine.
Since moving to Australia in 2010 I have taught guitar at St Laurences College in Brisbane, Coomera Anglican College and started the Rock School program at Canterbury College in Waterford. This has become the largest program of its type in Queensland winning multiple awards and in 2023 i was nominated for the Telstra ARIA Music Teacher Award which recognises teachers that have made an outstanding contribution to the Australian musical landscape and had a positive influence on students musical experience.
I am passionate about what I do, and whether you are looking for a teacher or to hire me for an event or function use the contact details on this website to let me know and we can get things started.
Lessons are available for students of all ages and take place in my fully equiped home studio in Coomera Waters.
I look forward to helping get started with or continue your musical journey.
