About Ralph H.

Hello there! My name is Ralph and it's a pleasure to make your acquaintance! I'm a mixed genre musician with over thirteen years of experience both on and off the stage. I offer seven instruments for musical instruction including the guitar, bass, vocals, and the piano. In terms of nonmusical instruction, I offer basic martial arts to promote self-discipline and exercise. I also offer good old fashion exercise routines that can be easily followed.

I grew up as a decorated Boy Scout and Venture Scout learning to survive on my in the wild and how to thrive. I draw my teaching curriculum and advice to my students from what I've learned over the years. During each lesson, I change and adapt my teaching techniques in order to better help my students gain confidence in their chosen discipline. For more information on what I offer or just information on me, in general, feel free to contact me at any time! So go on ahead and click the green button, I hope to hear from you soon.

I have little to no experience with guitar, but Ralph makes it very easy to get started and I began learning technique and chords right away. He clearly has a passion for music, but also experience in teaching others to play. He's not only compassionate and understanding for the difficulties you face as a beginner, but is also ready to challenge you and keep you motivated when learning gets frustrating. You'll progress quickly with him as your teacher.
