Teaching since:

Hi, my name is Henry and I am a guitarist. I love teaching, studying and performing music and I have been playing music my entire life. I started on piano, moved to violin and eventually settled on guitar as my primary instrument. I play around town in musical pit bands, jazz ensembles and various contemporary music settings. I love playing jazz, rock, classical guitar music and RnB, but I try to learn something from as many different styles of music as I can so I am able to teach my students whatever they want to learn and so I can be available for whatever job I am called for. Guitar is my passion and it would love to help you be a better player and have even more fun with it!
