Better Days Now
Zac Pugh has taught guitar to people from ages 7-70. Some have just wanted to learn some basic chords and strum along to their favourite songs. Others have studied guitar with Zac to excel at college level music and performance subjects, while still others have focused on composition and song writing.
More recently, Zac has been guiding many of his students through the SCSM Contemporary Guitar Syllabus, which he created in conjunction with the Saint Cecilia School of Music. Basically, this is learning guitar through pieces which are graded from beginner through to advanced levels-many of these pieces are composed by Zac. This has been a great success, with students across Australia and New Zealand working through this material, some even participating in the SCSM Exams and achieving very high results.
