Ben French - NOYS - "Cliffs Of Rock City" - 25/9/2011

The 2011 Night Of Young Stars student concerts were definitely some of the best performances recorded. Here is Ben French performing "Cliffs Of Rock City" with his tutor David Thirgood. Watch out for the blistering traded solo's between Ben and David at 1:36 in the video!

David Thirgood @ The Foozle Sessions - June 2010 - "You Belong With Me" [Taylor Swift]

During 2010, our principal guitar tutor and business owner David Thirgood was a defining figure of "The Big Foozle" sessions at The Albion Hotel. Two performers were chosen to front a house band and up to 200 people with only 1 rehearsal... and sometimes things were forgotten on-stage! Watch David perform "half-a-solo", get reminded there was more to go and come running back to do so!

David Thirgood @ The Foozle Sessions - March 2010 - "Haven't Met You Yet" [Michael Buble]

During 2010, our principal guitar tutor and business owner David Thirgood was a defining figure of "The Big Foozle" sessions at The Albion Hotel. Two performers were chosen to front a house band and up to 200 people with only 1 rehearsal! It was a crazy time and some very special moments were created "in the moment"... just like this guitar solo!

2015-03-22 - "Night Of Young Stars" - Timelapse

At the height of the "Night Of Young Stars" student concert series, we were holding up to 3 concerts in an afternoon/evening every term. This timelapse video is a fantastic "behind the scenes" look at how those shows were set-up, rehearsed, performed and pulled-down. A lot of hard work from students, teachers, parents and volunteers goes in to shows such as this to create a relaxed platform for students to showcase their immense talents.

We’re very excited to announce that we have made the addition of some slat-wall to house guitars, a new student chair with additional footstool for the younger students, a very comfortable parent chair and a completely revamped waiting area outside! While there’s still some small additions to be made, I think we can call this studio complete 🙂

Let us know what you think in the comments below!

2015 - Term 3 - Idan - "Riders In The Sky" by The Shadows

THROWBACK TUESDAY: This video is a HUGE favourite of our guitar tutor, David Thirgood. Idan was a very long term student who showed a natural ability for the guitar from his very first lesson at age 7. Idan's consistent practicing coupled with his genuine love for music and the guitar ensured that he progressed quickly. David and Idan shared a love for so many different songs and performed together countless times, but this performance captured something special, natural and organic between these two musicians.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy Idan performing "Riders In The Sky" by The Shadows.

11-12-2011 - David Thirgood - "Stuck In The Middle With You" - Stealers Wheel

We know it's great for people to see our past and present students "live" and "in action", but our guitar tutors have history too! Here's a great clip from 2011 where one of David's students - Angelena Locke - got on the mic and rallied the audience to get David up and sing. We know that this clip still holds a very special place in his heart. Thanks Ange for making this happen!

THROWBACK TUESDAY: 2012 was a special year for the "Night Of Young Stars" concert series. We had a lot of brand new students making their stage debut, performances of a lot of original material and the return of some experienced students who continued to absolutely WOW our audiences! REMEMBER... if you see yourself or someone you know, SHARE the post!

[08/29/20]   One of our "Top 10" videos of all time - this time, all the way from 2009! Jack - the guitarist on the left - makes his performance debut at the "Night Of Young Stars" student concert. Jack always displayed amazing groove and stage presence even at the tender age of 13. Jack continued tuition until leaving high school and was promptly hired as a tutor by David Thirgood for his tuition school. Jack continues to this day to successfully teach many students and bring the joy of guitar in to the lives of young musicians.

Before and after having my desk and storage unit delivered. With a quick cleanup, it’s now ready for the bookshelves to be delivered and installed! #the.guitarlab.au #we’renearlythere #veryexcited

The mess that two brothers make fitting a brand new door in to a frame that’s over 60 years old. Who knew that just retro-fitting the door knob and deadlock alone would take over 3 hours?? Luckily, it cleans up ok! #the.guitarlab.au #carpentryforbeginners #helpfromthebro

Last of the paint progress photos! One showing halfway through and the second showing the finished product. Next step: Replace the entrance door (not pictured!) and get some furniture set up. #the.guitarlab.au #goodbyerentalbeige #thankslittlebro #couldntdoitwithoutyou

The first coat of paint is up! We’re on our way to covering up the beige 👌 #the.guitarlab.au #erasethebeige #rentalbeige #helpfromthebro

I am very proud to announce that The Guitar Lab lease documents are officially signed and the keys are mine! Lessons will commence after some minor alterations and upgrades are completed #theguitarlab #newbeginnings #breakoutthepowertools
