Classical guitar teacher Ron Payne commenced his guitar studies at an early age after hearing the great Spanish guitarist, Andres Segovia. Learning the basics from the eminent Brazilian guitarist, Laurindo Almeida, Ron began formal studies with John Mills and Peter Calvo, (a disciple of Len Williams [father of John]) at the Sydney Spanish Guitar Centre. "One of my goals is to help the student apply his lessons so as to form a program and then perform; to become his OWN teacher." - Ron Payne Ron Payne currently holds guitar lessons at his private studio in Lower Templestowe in Victoria, where he specializes in performance practice, music history, theory, form and analysis, and ear training. Preparations for examinations, competitions and concerts can also be arranged. "I believe a student should play and perform. He's studying today what he aims to produce tomorrow. The focus is on the doing. Theory, theory, theory is for the ivory tower specialist." http://www.guitarteacher.com.au/
