About James H.

Take lessons to learn guitar, music theory, reading music, and many other musical skills. I specialize in solo guitar, improvisation, finger-style guitar, arranging, music theory and knowledge of various styles of music. Beginners are more than welcome, as are intermediate and advanced players, of all ages.

Skype lessons are also available!

Learn to play rock, jazz, blues, Latin, Brazilian, Classical, pop, reggae, folk, pop, metal, really anything!

Music should be fun to play and learn, which is the focus of my teaching method. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Music from SUNY New Paltz, and have performed at venues around the Hudson Valley and NYC. I am currently living in Nashville, TN where I am trying to make it big over time!

I look forward to meeting and helping you to become a better musician!
