Learn from Shane


Private Lessons

I love teaching, as it helps me to learn as much as it helps my students to learn. I have very limited availability for students, so please get in touch to see if the timeframe you have in mind is possible! Each lesson is unique, and tailored to each individual student.

I can usually cover any topic a student would like to learn. Some of the topics I have covered in the past include:

- General Fingerstyle Basics

- Irish Music (Traditional Guitar Accompaniment, Irish Trad Fingerstyle, etc.)

- Improving your Guitar Accompaniment skills

- Improving Picking Techniques

- Compositional skills and approaches

- Improvisational skills and approaches

- Learning basic music theory

- Specific songs/tunes/piece of music

- Using Logic Pro X (or alternative DAW software)

If you are interested in taking lessons, either in person or online (via Zoom, Skype, or FaceTime), please feel free to get in touch with me at connect@shanehennessy.ie


Payment is required in advance of online lesson(s) via PayPal, prior to the beginning of the lesson(s). I offer a discounted rate for a batch of lessons paid in advance.

Recording Lessons

I recommend to each student that they record their lessons using screen capture software of their choice during the lesson. I recommend ZOOM. The recording of lessons is permitted for personal use. Uploading and/or sharing a lesson without prior approval is not permitted.


Masterclasses & Workshops

At select festivals and concerts, I hold guitar masterclasses and workshops to share my tips and tricks with musicians of all ages and capabilities. I hold these classes and workshops in an open Q&A format, so that the attendees can get answers to the questions they want answered the most. You can view a workshop I held in Amsterdam in September 2017 here in its entirety:
