Learn guitar from an expert teacher with decades of experience teaching & performing
Want to grow your guitar skills? Want to jam with friends? Get that guitar out of the closest and back into the hands to play your favorite songs, to grow as a musician? ​As a professional guitarist and producer, let me help you grow into the musician you want to be. I teach guitar (and piano), to all ages. Playing music may seem like a mystery, but believe me, it's not - it just take time, focus and knowing how to put your energy into the instrument. I want to give you the set of tools you need to start playing, and loving the sound of music. Lessons will customized to you, with a focus on performance (rhythm, feel, musicality, improv, reading), theory and ear training, with a goal to be well-rounded player.
About Larson H.

Over the past decades of making music, I've seen it from all angles. I've toured in bands, gigged the locals scenes, taught, made music as a recording engineer / producer and as a live engineer at mid-sized clubs. After living in Europe for two years as a house recording engineer at a major studio in Prague, CZ, I've returned home to Seattle while keeping my connections strong in Europe - I went back last summer to make two records there! I believe in the power of study. It makes everything so much more fun. There was once a day when I struggled to figure out chord changes quickly and had to prep so hard for rehearsal. The more I studied, the easier everything become. Learning your foundation is everything. I find patience is number one in both teaching and learning. It is ok that's hard. It will get easier, we will find those breakthrough moments. I've found myself leaning in indie, rock, funk, soul, and blues. I have an appreciation for jazz and can teach you the basics. I love sitting down with an acoustic as fingerpicking is so much fun, but do send more time on electric guitar - how I love dialing electric sounds. As an engineer, I've had the fantastic experience of being in the room with Jack Endino, who recorded the early Nirvana and Soundgarden records. Plus with Randall Dunn, known for producing Johann Johannsson, Sunn o)), Algiers records, and many more. I've been taught that the computer is great, but it's musicians that make the music and it's the songwriters that provide the framework for us to have our fun. I have an amazing overdub / mix studio work out of in Seattle, with access to several of the top studios in town.

Larson is patient, easygoing, and extremely knowledgeable—an outstanding teacher overall! I'm 28 and have never played an instrument before, so I would wholeheartedly recommend him for students of any age and experience level. Five stars!
