Overview

Hello!

My name is Grant Hudson and I’ve been helping students grow for almost 10 years now! How time flies! I started playing music at age 9 and have been in love with it ever since, staying active in my local music scene as an instructor, performer, manager and booking agent.

In addition to freelance work, (weddings, jazz brunch gigs, etc.) I am the lead guitarist and manager for the funk band Captain Green and the soul project RetroFit. I attended Indiana University for jazz guitar and have studied under jazz greats Dan Miller, Corey Christiansen, and Oteil Burbridge.

I pride myself in taking a students learning needs and using that as my basis for their specific lesson plan, always on a case-by-case basis tailored to each individual student. Everyone is at a different waypoint on their path so why would I use a predetermined formula to try and help them, am I right? I am excited to meet and grow with every single one of you, let's learn to love the life we have and let our studies become radiant!

I teach all kinds of disciplines from guitar, mandolin, banjo, and clarinet, to creative writing, meditation, and even astrology. If you have any questions about my teaching methods, skill level in a certain discipline, or anything thing you can think of I would be more than happy to answer you!

Musically yours,
Grant

Grant is an amazing teacher. Veeeeery patient, encouraging and really flexible with scheduling lessons. He lives up to the hype in the reviews. I will definitely be continuing my lessons with Grant.

I really love this guy, and hope to take more lessons once I master the wealth of stuff he gave me in Round One.

Grant put me at ease, especially after I found that I had inadvertently broken a string. I enjoyed the duel camera setup on his end that offered the study material and his face.

After only three lessons Grant had me playing chords and finger rolls. Grant is a super instructor who is well organized and very patient. Great investment of my time and money. Thanks Grant

Grant quickly recognized my level of understanding with chord movement (beginner to intermediate) and we analyzed a song together that will help me recognize chord motion in other songs. This will allow greater chord pattern recognition, and therefore memorization should come easier - which I really want to happen!
This is only my first lesson with Grant, so I likely won't write another review until I've had a few more.

My first lesson was wonderful! Grant was able to aptly identify how to help me progress with my study, and challenged me in the right ways to move forward.

I'm looking forward to my next lesson!

Grant continues to be an excellent teacher for this beginner ukulele player. It's been years since I have practices music, and he is so patient as I try to re-learn how to read and play music. I highly recommend him as a teacher, and I look forward to learning more disciplines from him (including meditation and astrology!)
