Cabell Harris is a guitarist/multi-instrumentalist preformer and teacher. At age 4 he began his music career on violin. At age 8 he took up piano, and by 13 Cabell discovered the guitar. Throughout high school he was understudy of a few local guitar legends.

At 18 years old Harris, left California to study at the illustrious Berklee College of Music in Boston graduating Cum Laude in 2009 with a degree in Professional Music, emphasis in Performance and Composition. Since then he has established a career in songwriting, production, accompaniment and performance. He was awarded both the 2005 and 2006 McCord Musical Scholarship as well as the 2005 Holly Kettman Memorial Scholarship.

After Berklee, Harris relocated to Buenos Aires, Argentina where he expanded his cultural musicality as well as linguistics learning Spanish and Portuguese. Tiring from the Argentine scene, Harris set out as a backpacker and hiked across South America up into Central America. In 2011 he reappeared on the scene in Southern California as an educator and songwriter. Currently he is active as a touring musician, songwriter, as well as producer and teacher.

Cabell is a great teacher who really wants you to learn all about the instrument, so you can start composing your own songs! He is a very patient teacher and has so much knowledge about music, the guitar and how to get you to the next level. I highly recommend him!

He's a natural teacher. You'll learn a lot from him, easily.

If you are anything like me, you'll read this guy's profile and think it's too good to be true. But it is true, Cabell knows his stuff! He has helped me so much, my acoustic guitar is a completely new instrument to me because of all that I learned from him. The guy really is a wealth of musical knowledge and he has consistently found ways to explain things to me in a way that I understand it and can put it to use and gives me real exercises and things I can practice with and see results... WORTHY EVERY CENT!
