Music Lessons with Henry Hample

Three of my music students at the Academy of the Sacred Heart, Grand Coteau, La., 2013.


"I like you because you help me learn piano, you are great and perfect at music, and that's why you're a great teacher." - L.L., age 7
"I like you because you help me play cool songs." - M.Y., age 8
"My, my, my! I love how good you are with a guitar!" - D.G., age 10
"You are good at not breaking strings." - G.F, age 9
"I love you because you go out of your way to help us." - T.S., age 9
"I love you because you give everyone a chance." - C.S., age 8
"You are the best music teacher in the world." - K.H., age 6


I've taught private music lessons to hundreds of kids and adults since 1980. I'm equally comfortable teaching from books or "by ear." Either way, my style of teaching has always been informal, flexible, and fun.

I currently teach violin, guitar, piano, Cajun accordion, ukulele, bass guitar, and drums. (Other instruments I've taught include 5-string banjo, tenor banjo, mandolin, upright bass, autoharp, harmonica, and voice.) Students can learn Cajun, country, rock, pop, or classical music, or a combination of these.

I teach at my home in Grand Coteau, La. I also teach on Skype (over the Internet). For more information, please email me.
