Introduction: Interested in taking your guitar or mandolin playing to the next level? Have you been working with someone for a long time, but you feel like you can't really play anything? I approach each students individual needs with a custom catered approach. Whether you are just looking to strum some of your favorite Beatles and Dead tunes, or if you are really looking to get inside the instrument--learning theory, scales, and how to read--I'll work with you to reach your goals. I've been playing for over twenty three years, and currently play professionally throughout the Front Range. I have played a wide variety of styles, including rock, blues, funk, jazz, country, Americana, Folk, and Fingerstyle. Some of my influences include Taj Majal, Roy Buchanan, Mark Knopfler, Jerry Garcia, Miles Davis, John Scofield, Leo Kottke, Allen Toussaint, Ryan Adams, Grateful Dead, Phish, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Clapton, The Band, The Allman Brothers, Tedeschi Trucks, and The Beatles. I can come to you or teach you out of my studio. For lessons that require extensive driving a small fee may apply.

I was a music major in college and worked as a musician right out of college (piano). I've always wanted to learn the guitar. I've had many music teachers over the years, and I can honestly say Keith is one of the best I've ever had the pleasure of working with. For a teacher (and musician) of his calibre his rates are truly a bargain.

When I first heard Keith perform I was super impresed by his guitar playing ability and singing. I was suprised that someone of his caliber would also give lessons, so I had to give it a try. I highly recommend Keith Hicks! He focuses in on my individual areas that need improvement; and introduces higher level guitar concepts and skills. He is kind and patient, and never is condescending (like some.) Keith gives his full attention to his students and catches everything. Keith is an excellent teacher.

    I've been playing guitar for over 27 years. I am well versed in a variety of styles, and I have taught lessons for nearly twenty years. I studied music at Appalachian State University and received a music minor, with an emphasis in Jazz.
