Curt Henderson

Guitarist and producer

Curt Henderson is a Nashville-based guitarist, producer, and music educator. After completing a degree in Jazz Guitar Performance in his hometown of Vancouver, Canada, Curt moved to Nashville, TN and has since become an in-demand figure in Music City’s busy scene. He has played, recorded, and toured internationally with major label artists like EZA (Ellery Bonham), John King, American Idol finalist Jonny Brenns, and has his own project with his musical partner in crime, Shannon Lauren Callihan. As Nashville’s culture demands, Curt is equally at home on an r&b session one day and then a country artist’s tour the next day.

He is also passionate about his work as a featured artist and performer with brands like Fender, PRS, Music Man, D’Angelico, Supro, Strymon Engineering, and many other notable companies, as well as being a panel guest for institutions like Curt’s teenage dream came true when Fender asked him to be their featured artist in the release of their 2019 Stratocaster line. All in, Curt’s music releases and videos have received millions of listens and views across platforms as he continues to grow his career as a performer and producer.

A very significant part of Curt’s musical career has also been spent in music education. He is a dedicated educator, and has been invited to lead clinics and speak at colleges about the principles of effective guitar study, improvisation techniques, and how to translate the fundamentals of jazz and music theory to mainstream genres like r&b, funk, pop, and country. Curt has been teaching for over a decade and takes pride in working with students with the goal of mapping out the fretboard in a structured, systematic way so they can play more expressively and with intention. Curt is really just forever trying to recreate the same “lightbulb moments” that he experienced in his own development for each one of the students that he mentors today.

A modern approach to study

Unlike private lessons, Sonora's Fellowship students get unlimited access to feedback so learning and progress can happen every day – not just once a week.


Traditional weekly lessons

Students met with an instructor for just an hour, once a week. For the remainer of that week, students were more likely to practice bad habits and progress slowly.

Students get unlimited access to a mentor, 7 days a week. Along with a custom daily practice plan, forward progress can happen rapidly and at any time.
