I've been performing music for over 15 years. I've been teaching guitar for the past three years. I like keeping guitar fun! I will work with each student's individual needs and goals. I like all kinds of music and styles so don't feel embarrassed if you wanna learn a Taylor Swift song or Old Town Road. I like pursuing what the student is interested in while still teaching essential skills like strumming, note reading, chords, picking, etc. Reach out and lets chat about guitar!
About Luke H.

I grew up in Beaufort, South Carolina, picking up the guitar and bass at age 13. Before that, I had a strong interest in all types of music. After learning the basics on guitar, I formed a band in my tiny hometown, constantly learning and writing songs. For college, I went to Western Washington University in Bellingham. This was in part due to Bellingham’s thriving music scene, being the launchpads for bands such as Death Cab for Cutie and The Posies. In Bellingham, I started playing shows and forming bands with other talented musicians. I gained some traction in the Northwest music scene while playing guitar and lead vocals in an indie-rock band called The Palisades. The Palisades went on multiple tours and had a KEXP in-studio performance. After getting my bachelor’s degree in Geography in 2013, I moved down to Seattle and played in bands The City Hall (guitar and vocals) and The Co-Founder (bass and vocals). I frequently played Seattle venues such as The Vera Project, The Crocodile, and Chop Suey. I started teaching guitar and bass at School of Rock Issaquah in 2017. I quickly gained a passion for teaching music. I helped put on some camps and concerts through School of Rock, including Queen, The Pixies, and Goth Rock. In the fall of 2018, I went on an ambitious national tour with The Co Founder. We played 38 shows in 40 days around the United States. I took my guitar skills international in February 2019, touring in Japan. Sponsored by Gibson Guitars, I played 11 shows in 12 days in Japan performing with The Co Founder. In March 2019, I set off on another U.S. national tour with The Co Founder. We played numerous cities including the South By Southwest festival in Austin and the Vista music festival in Monterrey, Mexico. Currently, I am teaching guitar and working as an instructional assistant for special education classrooms at Seattle Public Schools. I am still playing shows in Seattle and constantly growing as a musician. I am excited to keep teaching through Take Lessons and meet some awesome students! ***I am new to Take Lessons but here are a couple reviews from students I had/have at different music schools: Louis B. Luke was our daughters very first guitar teacher. I attribute my daughters love of playing guitar to her experience learning from Luke. His ability to communicate and challenge her is second to none. As a parent Luke communicated to us what was needed for her practice at home. We have recently moved out of state and we didn't realize how good we had it with Luke. Trying to replace him has been a real challenge. Jayanti C. Luke is the perfect guitar teacher for our 7 yr old! He is very patient and encouraging! Our daughter has progressed significantly since starting on Jan 2020. You can see the effort in his lesson plan and in the progress she has made. We are very grateful for such a wonderful teacher!

Luke is a fantastic teacher! He is patient, kind, and extremely talented. He makes each and every lesson pure joy! He is excited to learn new songs himself so that he can teach them to me. He has made learning acoustic guitar such a fun experience! Highly recommend him!
