Hi.  My name is Erick Hailstone and I’m a Guitarist, Composer, and Guitar Teacher.  I studied at the Berklee College of Music, G.I.T., M.I.T., and private studies with some of the best musicians in the world.  If you don’t know my name I’ll bet you’ve heard music I’ve written or my guitar playing on such TV shows as “Friends” or commercials for  “Lowes” and “Lifelock”.

I’ve got decades of experience in many areas of the music business.  For years I’ve been studying and teaching all aspects of music and guitar playing.  I work for Yamaha as a Clinician and have taught Guitar Master Classes at Christian conferences all over the country.  I have also created and taught music classes for Home School Organizations.

This depth of experience informs my approach to teaching guitar. I recognize that every student is unique, and everyone takes lessons for different reasons. Some teachers can only show you the way that they learned; I take the time to know you, understand your goals, and tailor
lessons to your individual musical needs.

I work with students of all ages, in just about every type of music. Maybe you want to focus on a specific style, from jazz and rock to pop, alternative and more. Maybe you’d like to take a deep dive into scales, harmony, and rhythm. Or maybe you want to explore technical aspects of guitar such as finger-style playing, flat-picking, and hybrid approaches.

Lessons are $30.00 per half hour.

Whatever your passion, I can help you reach your full potential and as we explore the joy of music.

Lessons are $30.00 per half hour. Because of the pandemic I offer remote lessons exclusively. Using Zoom, the leader in video conferencing, I will send you an invite and then we are ready for our lesson. Purchasing Zoom is NOT necessary for lessons.
