With 25 years experience as a concert soloist on stages around the globe, it is so important to learn from a professional. Having studied for years with soloist Erick Friedman and pedagogue Sally Thomas, lessons comprise a teaching philosophy based on the principles of Jascha Heifetz and Ivan Galamian. With any student, learning the proper solid fundamentals that will hold up onstage for auditions right through to performing chamber music and as soloist with orchestras is so important and it is also about developing an enjoyable environment to the student to grow.

Lessons (in studio or online) are tailored depending on the needs of each student’s individuality as there is something so wonderful in enabling a student to find their musical voice and allow them to have fun and experience the challenge of musical growth.

About Greg H.

Hi, I am international soloist and pedagogue, I have been soloist with orchestras such as the San Diego Symphony, Rhode Island Philharmonic, Mexico City Philharmonic, RTE Concert Orchestra and The Janacek Filharmonic and I have presented masterclasses in Conservatories and Universities around the world from the Conservatorio Nacional in Mexico, Shanghai University, China to Universidade del Norte in Colombia. I have released 4 critically acclaimed albums to date and in late 2020, I will release a recording of Philip Glass’ music with the Janacek Philharmonic and conductor Mark Shapiro. This CD will include my own arrangement of the “Hours Suite” (based on the Oscar nominated score) and the Violin Concerto No. 2 “American Four Seasons”. With 20+ years teaching experience, I love teaching all levels and all ages, and enabling students to improve their violin playing.

Greg is amazing! I knew that as a parent with a musical background it would be tough to find a teacher for my son that actually ticked all the boxes - but Greg certainly does! His method of teaching is caring, open, and friendly. Even more importantly - his lessons actually keep my son interested in the music and playing his instrument! Greg is also very focused on technique which is hugely important to me. Highly recommend!
