Twice a year, in the winter and summer, Huber Guitar Studio hosts a student recital downstairs in the eclectic parlor room of the James E. Hooper House. This past July, students had a chance to polish up their songs and perform them in front of family, friends, and fellow students. We had quite a range of guitar music from Led Zeppelin to Mississippi John Hurt to Astor Piazzolla, a great mix of music! We all had a chance to mingle afterwards, enjoy refreshments, and talk about music and guitar. All students are encouraged to participate to develop performance experience.

Learning Bluegrass or Flat-picking guitar is a great method for those who are interested in folk, bluegrass, or country music and also for people who want to learn the basics and build a strong foundation of guitar techniques. It is an excellent way to get started as beginning guitarist or a great way to expand the skill-set of the advancing guitarist.
Learning bluegrass guitar involves working on the following skills:
- Playing rhythm guitar chords “Carter style” with alternating bass notes and walking bass notes
- Learning bluegrass/old-time repertoire: chords and melodies for songs and instrumentals.
- Learning to develop speed and volume for playing lead breaks
- Learning to improvise over the chord changes in bluegrass songs
- Learning the specific styles of master flat-pickers like Doc Watson, Tony Rice, Norman Blake and others.
