Harry Koizumi

Guitarist, vocalist, and teacher Harry Koizumi of Kailua studied with musicians like Jerry Byrd, expert steel guitar player and Raymond Kane, “the renowned slack-key master.” Harry’s teaching philosophy focuses on first, getting students to understand the fundamentals of music and how to improvise and put notes together. Then, he teaches them to read sheet music as lessons continue. He says that teaching someone how to read music before they can play is “like teaching someone to read a book, but not teaching them vocabulary of how words go together.” Harry teaches the guitar and the ukulele in styles like rock ‘n’ roll, Hawaiian slack-key, and classical guitar.
