Henri Guitars - Luthier Training Course in the UK
Organized by: Jeremy Henri
For the past many years it's been my dream to bring a custom guitar shop to the Portland Metro area. Henri Guitars exemplifies the idea that guitars are a beautiful instrument, music is a beautiful thing, and everyone deserves the opportunity make beautiful music with a beautiful instrument.
The origin of me even playing guitar started at a guitar club back in high school. I had always wanted to do something with music, but didn't have the means to get an instrument to see which path I wanted to take. Having access to a group of people, each with their own instruments, gave me that opportunity I needed to get started. If I'd had that same access earlier in life, I would have started much sooner, and that's something I want to help the community with. Once Henri Guitars, as a business, reaches the point of full production of guitars, I plan to work with the public school system to create guitar club programs in middle and high schools, and help mold our next generation of guitarists.
But in the mean time, we have a lot of work to do - starting with professional training from the master luthiers at Crimson Guitars!
I've researched a lot of luthier training courses over the years, and nothing really seemed to satisfy me. Nothing popped out as "Yeah, that would give me all I need to get going full bore", rather, they all seemed to fall short of a few crucial details I want to make sure I have a grasp of. Owning and operating a business, the best methods for each particular guitar build, understanding the diversity of the hundreds of options you have when creating an instrument, and so much more are the things I can't find anywhere else.
Crimson Guitars is a custom guitar shop based in a small town about 3 hours from London. I've followed them on YouTube the past few years, and finally found that they offer full training courses. I've already been in contact with them about this, and have all the details I need to know that this is EXACTLY what I've been looking for.
Now I just need your help to make it happen.
