What the students are saying about Guitar Club.

David Clarke, West Sussex, U.K.

I joined the Guitar Club a few months after subscribing to the Mandolin Academy as I was very impressed with the content there from Magnus and Hayes.

Coming from classical guitar I’m enjoying learning flatpicking on an acoustic guitar and my only problem is finding enough time to learn all the tunes! A great resource for beginners and intermediate level guitarists.

Mitch Langdon, Ontario, Canada

As a career guitarist of over twenty years, I can truly say that Hayes Griffin is among the highest authority of music teachers on planet earth.

His passion for music is extremely contagious, and his ability to tap into the "beginners' mind" MUST be a result of his natural proclivity for teaching.

With his advice both musical and non-musical, in tandem with his positively encouraging attitude, I have reawakened a flame for creative expression within myself, which will burn until the end.

Your  Instructor:

Hayes Griffin is a multi-instrumentalist and music educator living in Columbus, OH. Hayes holds degrees in music from Denison University (2010) and New England Conservatory of Music (2012), where he studied under the direction of legendary mandolin pedagogue John McGann.

After graduating from NEC, Hayes spent over ten years on the road, touring with Canadian fiddler April Verch, then progressive bluegrass band Newtown, whose album Harlan Road featured Griffin’s guitar work and debuted at #8 on the Billboard Bluegrass Charts.

Since then, Hayes taught hundreds of guitarists and mandolin players at camps and workshops across the United States, Canada, and Europe.

Additionally, Hayes made his mark in 2020 as one of the preeminent scholars of swing mandolinist Tiny Moore with the release of his Tiny Moore Tuesday series on YouTube. The same year, Hayes partnered with Magnus Zetterlund to become the second instructor on, where he serves an audience of thousands of musicians, exploring topics ranging from swing mandolin, bluegrass guitar, ear training, and mindfulness practices.
