Founder’s Notes 


Garrett Park School of Music was founded on the belief of sharing our passion for music with our community. Lessons began humbly in the '90s as people would come to us to sharpen their skills, and as the years went on, the school gradually grew to become what it is today. Through cultivating an environment for creative expression, our hope is to give back the freedom that music has given to us.

And so we teach.


A message from our founder, rick hogue

In 1991 we opened our first brick and mortar store, Garrett Park Guitars, in Arnold, Maryland selling vintage guitars exclusively. Soon thereafter, we chose to add new lines to our offerings and, in 1994, we moved to Annapolis, Maryland where we now are located. Once we had a brick and mortar store, it only made sense to start teaching lessons to our customers. With that, Garrett Park School of Music was founded. For 20 years GPSoM has been providing music instruction to the people of Annapolis, and will continue to do so in the future.
