Hugh Stuckey fell in love with the guitar at age 4 after receiving one from his grandparents at Christmas. Growing up in rural South Australia distractions were hard to come by and he and the guitar were virtually inseparable for most of his childhood. By age 11 he had shared the stage with his childhood idol Tommy Emmanuel and soon after he started boarding school in Adelaide where he found a host of like-minded musicians. His professional career as a musician and educator began at the same time he was studying music at the University of Adelaide and, after completing his undergrad degree, he relocated to Melbourne. Here he flourished as a performer and gained experience as a teacher of students from young beginners through to college-age music majors.
Hugh moved to New York in 2016 to pursue a masters degree at the Manhattan School of Music and he continues to be a passionate performer and educator. He teaches guitar and piano and loves to instill in his students the same joy for music which he had as a child and still has today.
