Associate professor of guitar Thaddeus Hogarth ’88 has authored Funk-Rock/R&B Guitar Soloing, two popular courses for Berklee Online, and taught more than 120,000 students in his Introduction to Guitar course on Coursera, for which he was featured on NBC’s Today Show.  But Hogath—who was born in England and raised in St. Kitts, West Indies—has a recording and performance history every bit as impressive as his pedagogical achievements.

Hogarth has released half a dozen albums under his own name; performed with many of the seminal names in funk and R&B; and composed music for PBS, MTV, and many independent and feature films.

And underpinning it all is thirteen years (and counting) in which he’s been an guitar faculty member at Berklee, teaching generations of students how to grow their skills and realize that, as he says, “process and practical results are equally important.”
