About Us

Hank Castello

Hank Castello (that’s me) is the founder of Guitars Done Right, creator of GuitarFlipper.com and owner, tech and head janitor of Hank’s Guitar Shop in Palm Harbor, FL.

I started my guitar repair and setup business about ten years ago, working full-time from home, building on the experience I got apprenticing from a luthier in Houston in the early 1970’s.

I want to spread the joy of music-making by showing “ordinary people” just how easy it can be.  We offer free Beginner Guitar (group) lessons most Saturdays and I’m hiring the best instructors I can find to help guide players beyond the beginner stage, intermediate and beyond.

We’re doing the same with guitar techs, offering setup workshops, apprentices and building an online guitar tech school.

We’re hiring guitar instructors but also music instructors who can teach a variety of stringed instruments and even voice! If you’re looking for music lessons in Palm Harbor, you’ve come to the right place!

My Mission

Empowering Musical Journeys, One Note at a Time

Welcome to a space where your musical dreams take flight, guided by a passion that resonates with every string strummed, key pressed, beat hit, and chord plucked.  We’re here not just to teach, but to embark with you on an extraordinary journey of discovery, growth, and mastery across the realms of guitar, piano, bass, ukulele, and mandolin.

A Symphony of Experience

Our mission is to impart not only the technical skills necessary for proficiency but also the joy, creativity, and passion that music evokes. Whether you are picking up an instrument for the first time or looking to refine your mastery, our approach will be tailored to fit your individual journey.

Personalized Learning Paths

Understanding that each student’s musical journey is unique, we offer personalized learning paths that cater to your individual goals, interests, and pace. From the fundamentals of music theory to the nuances of expressive performance, we are dedicated to nurturing your skills in a way that is both challenging and rewarding.

For a (very) limited time, we’re offering discounted first lessons.  Let’s use this opportunity to meet and see where it might take us.
