      Teaching Philosophy: I'm very passionate about fundamentals. Myself and others around me all wished we had a stronger beginning with fundamentals. Breaking down larger concepts into smaller chunks is something else I focus on as well. Lastly, as a performer, I try to make my students into musicians who can take their idea and make with work with others. Music is meant to be shared!

      Get to know Rusty Higgs

      Hi, I'm Rusty, I started my musical journey 16 years ago. Since then I have gotten to play with a number or different bands both in tiny venues and in full auditoriums in every style from jazz to country to progressive. Although my main instrument is guitar I studied jazz voice and recording engineering in college along along with drums. I'm still passionate to this day about learning and improving and I love helping other people learn!
