Henry teaches guitar out of a hybrid of the methods of classical guitar legends Andrés Segovia and Elias Barreiro, and the Suzuki method. In this way both fundamental techniques are taught along with keeping the lessons interesting and engaging for the student. Henry believes that it is important for students to have a strong foundation in the fundamentals of the guitar and music, while also being able to enjoy lessons and work on music that interests the students as well.
Henry has extensive experience teaching all levels of music theory from basic music theory principles, 17th and 18th century counter point, and 20-21st century theory, to much more intensive Schenkerian analysis.
Henry specializes in guitar, music theory, and music composition and can teach all styles of guitar including: classical guitar, jazz guitar, rock, blues, country, bluegrass, pop. He adapts and tailors each lesson to the individual student and that student's interests and goals.
Henry teaches music theory and composition both as individual one on one lessons and as group classes, focusing lessons/classes on the level and desire of the student/students.
Henry also teaches banjo, mandolin, ukulele, and bass guitar.
