Michael Hendrix is a self admitted Musiholic. Following a rather traditional initiation to music with piano lessons at five years of age, Michael found his true Holy Grail at age twelve in the six strings of the guitar. The calling to pursue a career in the field of music came that same year. The quest continues!


A devoted student of his craft, Michael succumbed to self-imposed exile to the halls of academia throughout the decade of the 1970’s. Studies in the field of composition led to faculty honors as well as recognition by a variety of private arts organizations. A new compulsion was born. Greatly influenced by his studies with such luminaries as composers Truman Fisher and Dick Grove, Jazz guitar great Dave Koonse, and classical guitar masters Richard Pattie and Michael Kozubek it was now time to bring the dream to fruition.

A pedagogue in his own right, Michael’s guitar concepts draw heavily from the principals of the Romero family, Christopher Parkening and a dash of guitar legend Lenny Breau. His student’s have consistently been accepted to perform in master classes with such leading artists as Scott Tennant and Christopher Parkening and he has also produced several winners of noteworthy musical competitions.


Michael is currently active as Director of Classical Guitar Studies and Community Liaison at the International School of Music in Glendale, California.
