Southside Guitar School was founded in 2005 by me, Kire Stefanovski on the principle of providing quality guitar tuition in a fun, safe and friendly atmosphere. My passion for music, in particular guitar, began back in 1985, when at the age of 15 I played my first live show in a rock band and then ended up spending the next 25 years on the road, playing in some of Sydney`s top, award-winning concept shows and original touring acts. In 1988 I was offered a teaching position at my local music shop which I held for 4 years before moving on to teach at several other music schools over the following decade. Although it was an invaluable experience teaching at these schools I was never content with the programs they had in place so I began developing and writing my own teaching method. Over 20 years in the making, with much trial and research, I created the program that is now taught at Southside Guitar School.
