For budding musicians who lack the cash, where can one turn to for introductory lessons, whether it is music production or instrumental tuition on guitar or keyboard, just to get started? Conversely, are there teachers out there who are willing to set aside their time and offer their services for free? The internet has certainly opened up a plethora of new possibilities in music teaching, as it has in every other area, and here we explore some of what is happening.

One of the most successful music teachers on the internet, period, is Justin Sandercoe. This Tasmania born guitarist and producer, now liveing in London, has been in the game of offering internet instrumental tuition for 10 years and now has upwards of 1,000 lessons on YouTube and on his own channels. He is “one of the most popular online guitar teachers in the world,” chimes the ABC’s Felicity Ogilvie. Having taught Katie Melua and been on staff at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London, there’s no doubting his credentials. But what is interesting is why Sandercoe should have chosen to offer all the lessons on his site for free. Full story.
