Learn to read and play music in just 3 days when the world's most amazing music teacher returns to Melbourne. Duncan Lorien's world-renowned Understanding Music Seminar turns traditional music teaching on its head!

Learn notes, chords, scales, plus blues and jazz improvisation on keyboard & guitar. Plus learn how to read any piece of written music. All in just 3 mind-blowing days. Ideal for everyone from complete novices to 'lapsed musicians,' self-taught musicians who know nothing of theory, professional musicians, even music teachers and music professors.

The seminar has been delivered throughout Australia for the past 20 years and is fully supported by Yamaha Australia who supply all instruments to the seminar. This unique approach to learning music takes place in a hands-on seminar with like-minded individuals who want to have fun learning music in a collaborative manner.

Over 32,000 people have graduated from the seminar in 20 countries worldwide, including thousands here in Australia.

Here are what just a few of them had to say about their experience in the seminar:

“Duncan’s seminar is the experience of a lifetime. It does everything it says on the tin, but it does more as well!” - Jan Mihal

“The money I have paid is nothing compared to the many many doors you have opened in my life.” -
Lynette Kepu

“You have to do this seminar! You will walk away, after the seminar, with all the understanding you could ever need to achieve your dream!” - Joanne Grant

“This made me remember the frustration that made 11 year old me quit piano. I finally understand so much of what killed my interest and passion, and I’m eager to make up for lost time.” - Colin Lees

"Fantastic. Makes music accessible. Loved it.” - Alan Birchall

“I had my mind blown to bits!” - Sheridan Stephens

“Words cannot express my gratitude. Thank you Duncan. I literally owe you for returning my dreams that I thought were not mine to have.” - May Jenkin

“Thanks so much Duncan I would highly recommend this course to all.” - Alex Ninis

“I thoroughly enjoyed the 3 days. The presentation was entertaining and mixed with the history, the knowledge and the “ah-ha’ moments, it was a great experience. Thanks for the opportunity.” - Rob Walker

“Thank you for your passion and commitment in stripping away all the cr*p so that I can now fully understand the core and gems of music. Thank you so much.” - Hien Webb

"I can say with some certainty that anyone completing this course and properly understanding it will know more about music that most music degree graduates." - Matthew Field (Professional Musician)

"I felt enlightened after the seminar. Duncan’s understanding of music joined all the dots. I would most highly recommend it to anyone." - Leon B (Yamaha Music Australia)

"At the end of the first day I had got enormous value. By the end of the second day I had gotten my full value and more, then there was still a third day!" - Michael McMahon
