Live Music: Erick Hailstone
Erick Hailstone is an accomplished guitarist, composer, and guitar teacher. He studied at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, GIT, MIT, along with private studies with some of the best musicians in the world. You’ve most certainly heard music Eric has written or played, on such famous TV shows as “Friends,” or in commercials for companies such as “Lowes” and “Lifelock.”
Erick has decades of experience in all areas of the music business – for years he worked for Yamaha Guitars as a clinician and has taught guitar masterclasses at conferences all over the country. He also developed a curriculum of guitar studies just for home-schooled people.
Erick’s main passion these days is teaching: He works with students of all ages, in just about every genre of music, helping serious students decide on a specific style, from jazz to rock to pop to folk or alternative, or even take a deep dive into scales, harmony, and rhythm, exploring the more technical aspects of guitar such as finger-style playing, flat-picking, and hybrid approaches.
