Your teacher

My name is Helen Begley and I am an experienced guitarist, ukulele player, performer, songwriter and teacher. My personal interest and specialty is teaching women and girls how to play guitar and ukulele with confidence and enjoyment. I also am a performer and songwriter and have co-produced several albums with my former band, Milk, two solo albums and my current album, “Voyage” with The Good Girl Song Project. I have won awards for songwriting, played at folk festivals across Australia and had my work played on ABC and community radio across the country.I teach privately from Surrey Hills, West Brunswick and Armadale. Lessons are relaxed, encouraging and good fun.
