He has been teaching guitar and electric bass for the past 20 years in a variety of styles working with beginner students through to more advanced players. He specializes in Jazz, Classical and Contemporary Pop/Rock/Folk styles of guitar playing and has performed and recorded with artists such as: Ainslie Wills, Ben Abraham, Clio Renner (Rockwiz), Megan Washington, Georgia Mooney (All Our Exes Live In Texas) and Emily Lubitz (Tin Pan Orange).

Lawrence is also currently a guitar teacher and music production teacher at Collarts in Melbourne.
