About Me


Hi, I’m Rick Fincke.  I have performed in bands since I was 17 and have been teaching music  for over 30 years.  I specialize in Guitar, Ukulele, & Mandolin and teach at Guitar Haven in Indian Harbor Beach, Florida (321) 773-1242,  which is a short drive from all the Melbourne and Palm Bay area communities.  I teach all levels from beginner to advanced, with students of all ages ranging from elementary school to retired seniors.  All of my instruction is tailored to the individual student, and I try to keep the lessons fun while expanding both the student’s knowledge and physical skills.  Lessons are Monday through Thursday from 1:30p.m. to 9:00p.m & Saturday from noon to 5:00p.m. 

For additional information or to schedule a lesson you may contact me by phone at (321) 305-2934 or by email at rick@rickfincke.com. Please browse the pages linked in the menu bar above.  There is material available for each of the instruments I teach.  If you would like to see me in action please click on performances in the menu bar and come to a show!
