Rusty Heagy is our Beam's Teacher of the Month!
Rusty has been a teacher with us for over 20 years, teaching young and old, beginner players, and experienced musicians alike. His main instrument of choice is guitar, but he teaches guitar, mandolin, banjo, and dobro. He teaches different styles of music for each of his instruments such as gospel, bluegrass, country, rock, and folk. Throughout his studies had several teachers including Herbert Beam (Founder of Beam's Music), Dale Weller, and David Stafford. In his teaching, Rusty focuses on reading and music theory along with the technique of each instrument. He believes that a well-rounded education in all musical aspects-not just how to play your instrument-is paramount to making great musicians.
