Hubie is a really great teacher. He was able to connect with me on the music I liked, and the way I play. He helped come up with individualized lessons around technique and even a bit of theory that helped tie things I knew together with new concepts.

You or your child will benefit immensely from guitar lessons with Hubie -- and you'll put him on your all-time favorite teachers list. He's not just a phenomenal guitar player; he's a gifted instructor.

Hubie was PERFECT for me. He was very knowledgeable and patient. . . He helped give me the starter foundation that I’ve been looking for. Thank you Brian and Hubie! I highly recommend Red Pelican Music!

Hubie was fantastic. I've never played guitar before and by the 3rd lesson, Hubie was able to teach me to play some basic Petty and Guns and Pearl Jam songs! He was very patient and gave me some great "homework" to help prep me each lesson. If you're looking to take some music lessons, this is the right place to go!

Hubie was my teacher for a few months, and I cannot say anything but good things! He always came well-prepared with exercises that were specific for my needs. We took things at a pace that was appropriate for me, and I could tell that he spent time between lessons preparing for our next one. Definitely recommend this company to anyone interested in lessons.

My lessons with Hubie have been fantastic. I have had a variety of teachers over the years, but Hubie really inspired me to get back into playing more seriously. He taught me a variety of useful methods, licks, and bending/sliding/picking techniques. Now, I play all the time! What's more, he taught me the kind of music I wanted to learn. My hat's off to Hubie and Red Pelican!

Hubie is an easy going guitar teacher and a big believer in learning theory and musical concepts via his student’s favorite songs. He enjoys working with students of all levels, and his goal is to get them as passionate about music and the guitar as he is!
