I focus on musicality when I teach any instrument. With the guitar, that means keeping great rhythm, using rich chords and melodic solos, and playing with careful expressiveness.

We learn from the greats (Beatles, Police, Radiohead, etc) and learn to create and express from there.

About Colin H.

I'm an avid music fan familiar with rock (indie rock, classic rock, alternative), pop, funk, disco, and classical genres. Music has been my "thing" since the day I was born and I love connecting with people through their favorite music.

My lessons focus on empowering each student with the skills to play what they want to play.

If you want to have a good time playing great music, you've come to the right teacher!

*** Lesson Details ***
You and I work on simple exercises that help get you to the next level in your performance and then apply the principle taught to a piece of music you are familiar with. It's a great method that gets you playing what you want to play at the level you want to play it at.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All of the instruments that I teach (guitar, bass, upright bass) as well as recording gear (Pro Tools, mics, synths, etc.)

*** Travel Equipment ***
Any instrument that I teach.

*** Specialties ***
Classical Upright Bass and Music Production (mixing, mastering, Pro Tools recording, beat sequencing)

Colin is such a great teacher! He has been so helpful with improving my guitar skills, and he is teaching me all of the songs I’ve been wanting to learn, as well as music theory. Would highly recommend him!

I have worked on songwriting with Colin for years and he is a very versatile and skilled songwriter. He does a great job helping you find the style you want to write in and fill in the holes in your skill-set. Definitely would recommend!

Colin is an experienced music producer and very knowledgeable in the ins and outs of pro-tools. Our lessons were super helpful. Pro tools was very daunting to learn and he knew just how to break it down. I went in really not knowing much at all and with our time together I'm now confident to make my own recordings sound great!

Colin is extremely patient and knowledgable. I went into it not really knowing how to record vocals. He only made me feel confident in my abilities and showed me the way without being condescending, and also being super helpful throughout. He explained so many of the processes and aspects of the software and his confidence in me helped me perform better than expected! Super smart guy, he really knows his stuff.
