Overview

Bio -

Guitarist Brian H. studied at The Hartford Conservatory and the Hartt School of Music, graduating at the top of his class with honors from The Hartford Conservatory. Brian has been a guitar and bass instructor at Choate Rosemary Hall since 1999. Brian also teaches at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, The Music Shop in Southington, and is the owner of Guitar Star Studio, located in Glastonbury, CT. In the past, he taught at The Hartford Conservatory and Riccardo's Music in East Hartford.

Brian has performed in many bands with diverse styles of music. As a past member of the John Jeski band for 13 years, he was a voting member of the Grammy Awards. Brian has 25 years experience playing in rock/pop bands, and currently performs with country artist Frankie Justin Lamprey. He has had the opportunity to perform several times at the Oakdale Theater, the Rock Cats Stadium, and has also done a number of radio and television interviews. Brian has provided liturgical music for many years in CT; also, in Sicily and Rome. Mr. H is a patient, enthusiastic teacher who enjoys helping his students master the art of guitar.



*** Lesson Details ***
In the first half of the lesson, students can expect to learn music fundamentals from a guitar method book, i.e. how to read music; I also teach guitar tablature. Depending on ability (beginner, intermediate, advanced), I will show them chords, scales and how to play a guitar solo. The second half of the lesson is spent with the student learning their favorite songs and building a repertoire (song list) for possbile future performances.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home: Seating for parents. I provide the amp, instrument cable and music stand. I expect the student to have a guitar and notebook. If the student does not have a guitar, I will give a referral for reasonably priced guitars.


*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have a guitar and notebook. If the student does not have a guitar, I will give a referral for reasonably priced guitars.

I have been taking guitar lessons from Brian for a little over a year. His style is both patient and encouraging. I admire his ability to "hear the music"....every note ! I am an adult who has wanted to learn guitar for many years and thrilled to have found Brian. He truly displays a desire to teach at a pace that is comfortable. I would recommend him to folks of all ages.
