Become a guitar sensation by practicing and learning from an experienced pro.
I focus on the individual needs of each student, helping them craft a personal practice approach to meet their unique goals and aspirations. The wide-reaching diversity of my performance careers informs my teaching; I'm comfortable teaching classical guitar, jazz improvisation, finger style, folk music, electric guitar, sight-reading; all areas which have been the bread and butter of my 10+ year professional performing experience. I'm always excited to meet my students where they're at, be they first-time beginners or advanced players.
About Nate H.

I'm a professional musician and doctoral classical guitar student based out of New York City! I have degrees in guitar performance from the Yale School of Music (M.M, M.M.A '19, '20) and the University of North Carolina (B.M. '16), where I've studied classical & jazz guitar, early music, and general music theory/history. I'm currently working towards a Doctorate of Musical Arts at Stony Brook University! While my academic studies have been focused on classical music, my performance career is stylistically broad - highlights include appearances as the electric guitar player with the Pittsburgh Opera & the Spoleto Festival Orchestra, recording and touring with the Americana-jazz band Ellis Dyson & the Shambles, 10+ years of musical theater pit orchestra performances, and countless one-off jazz/pop gigs. Classical guitar, sight-reading, and jazz improvisation are my specialties, but my teaching approach is focused on targeting the individual needs of each student and guiding them towards a unique, personalized practice methodology.

I knew Nate as a friend before signing up for a lesson, and was not surprised to learn he's an awesome insructor too. I hadn't picked up an instrument in my whole life, and assumed a lesson was already light years ahead of where I was, but Nate made me feel comfortable and gave me a manageable amount of building blocks to practice and build on. I never felt like a noob, and am more excited to play, or at least learn, because of it. He gave me an hour which flew by, and the price was incredibly reasonable. Would highly recommend, Nate's the man, give him a chance!
