Mr. Hofmann at First Avenue

I am so happy to join the staff at Patrick Henry High School again this year!

I come to Henry with over 20 years of teaching experience in Minneapolis.

I earned my under graduate degree in Music Education from the University of Minneosta, with classical guitar as my principal instrument. I earned a graduated degree from the U of M in Learning Technologies.

My main instrument is guitar, but I also enjoy playing piano, percussion, accordion and bowed instruments. I am songwriter and composer. I perform mostly pop music with a backing band.



Hello and Welcome to the Choir page.

Our wonderful Patrick Henry Concert Choir is a 40 voice group of dedicated performers.

We are very fortunate to have working with us Mr. Courtland Pickens.

Mr. Pickens has been an artist-in-residence at Henry for 4 years now. My how time flies!


At Henry, we have classes of Beginning Guitar and Intermediate/Advanced Guitar. It is my passion! At the Univiersity of Minnesota, my principal instrument was guitar. I continue to practice and occasionally perform many genres. My favorite is the classical style and repertoire of the masters of Central and South America from 1900-1950.
