Guitar & Bass Instructor - Henry Whelan
Henry started playing guitar at the age of 20 and quickly realized that it was very difficult for him to put down. After trying to go down a more traditional life path he realized that his love for music and the guitar was something he could not ignore. He decided to audition to get into the Atlanta Institute of Music & Media.
In the summer of 2018 Henry graduated from A.I.M.M. with honors at the head of his class. Since graduating Henry has played in a few local cover bands and wedding bands, participated in a NPR Tiny Desk contest performance and has started writing his own original music. He is currently in the process of getting his own band together to play his original songs and take the Atlanta cover band circuit by storm!
Henry is passionate about all styles of music, improvisation, songwriting and music theory. His progress on his instrument in the time he has been playing is something that is not often seen. He is a great resource for learning how to make progress on your guitar quickly and efficiently.
