Brad DicksonHi, I’m Brad Dickson, and I’ve been playing music since I was very young. I started out with piano, moving to guitar when I was thirteen years old, and have been teaching students of all ages since I was nineteen.

I have undertaken various studies in areas such as guitar playing, live performance, digital technology, music theory, aural training among others. I have also recorded a solo instrumental album and played in several bands including, up until the end of 2014 as a guitarist in acclaimed original heavy metal band ‘Darker Half’, playing shows in Sydney and in every other state/territory in Australia. With Darker Half, I’ve also been on tour for two months playing shows throughout the USA.

My official qualifications include:

  • Australian Institute of Music – Bachelor of Music
  • AMEB Contemporary Guitar – Grade 4 (Advanced)
  • Currently studying at the University of New England – Master of Secondary Teaching

I also possess a current Working With Children certificate, as I’ve experience in teaching students of all ages.
