Henry White has been studying and performing music since the age of 12. Born and raised in Atlanta, he owes his early experiences in music to the Atlanta music community as well as the guidance and instruction of many great local musicians and educators.
For the past three years Henry has passed down those lessons, experiences, and influences through his work with rockandbluescamp.com; helping kids who have often never played any rock or blues on their instruments, learn about what it takes to play in a horn section and solo in these genres, while providing life long lessons about work ethic, practicing, and musicianship.
Henry is a longtime student of many styles of music, including jazz, funk, rock, hip hop, and pop, and he focuses the importance of being a well-rounded musician when working with students. Henry aims to help students work on skills such as playing as a section, maintaining a good sound, playing within a groove, improvisation, ear training, harmonic knowledge, etc.
