Guitar workshop with Christian Zappia

Saturday August 18th
2pm - 4pm
Cost - $40

Christian is the guitar player for Perth dream rockers Wooly Mammoth, and is currently studying a Bachelor of Music (Contemporary) at WAAPA. Chris is a highly accomplished guitarist with an effortless and polished playing style, but is also highly regarded for his great tone and subtle use of effects pedals.

Aimed at intermediate players, in this workshop Christian will cover the basics of getting the best possible tone from your guitar and amp setup before talking about and demonstrating how he gets some of his epic sounds.

Whatever your playing style, learning how to dial in the killer tone is an essential part of becoming the complete guitarist. We'll show you how to re-create some classic guitar sounds and go in search of Howard's Note.

This is a hands on workshop – bring your guitar, amp and effects pedals and expect to do plenty of playing.


In the July school holidays we were privileged to have the incredible Carla come to Rock Scholars to talk about her songwriting craft and play a few songs.

For a few very lucky young musicians this was an opportunity to spend three hours up close and personal with one of Perth’s most talented singer songwriters who many of us feel is likely to be WA’s next big thing.
