Banjo & Guitar Teacher - Casey H
Banjo & Guitar TeacherLos Angeles, CA

Growing up among golden hills, with chickens as a point of hometown pride, I developed a love for the American Musical Form. I learned to play Saxophone, Banjo and guitar and after graduating from UCLA, I have taught lessons here in Los Angeles. I've worked with amazing people here, getting opportunities to write music for films and play with some of LA's best folk musicians. If you want to start learning, there is never a better time. I'd love to share my passion and knowledge with you!
