Lawrence Huppert has a broad background in college level music instruction beginning as a graduate teaching assistant while enrolled in the music program at Southern Methodist University. His skills have been developed through considerable experience teaching advanced music theory and ear training courses, private guitar lessons, classroom guitar courses, general music courses, and in guitar ensemble coaching. In 2006, Huppert developed and taught an online Music Appreciation course for Tarrant County College. He provides dedicated instruction to students with diverse musical goals ranging from beginners interested in exploring the world of music and the guitar, to devoted amateurs, and to those aspiring to professional careers in music.
Huppert's instruction is informed by years of formal training in music and classical guitar. His principal teachers were Robert Guthrie and Joseph Hagedorn. He performed in guitar master classes taught by Sharon Isbin, William Kanengiser, Carlos Barbosa-Lima, Scott Tennant, Adam Holzman, and Frank Koonce. As an auditor, he attended master classes of other notable guitarists such as Norbert Kraft, David Russell, Costas Cotsiolis, and Christopher Parkening. He graduated with Honors from the University of Wisconsin River Falls, and holds the Master of Music degree in Classical Guitar Performance from the Meadows School of the Arts at Southern Methodist University.
Huppert gives private instruction at his home studio in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. He offers gentle and fun guitar lessons for children and adult hobbyists. Lessons are presented with a patient and flexible method of instruction sensitive to the unique learning style and needs of each individual. Students age four and above are gladly accepted. Many students in both college and private settings have continued on to long term studies.
