It is with our greatest sadness to announce that Professor Bernard Hebb has passed away today after fighting a long illness. Professor Hebb was a classical guitar teacher at the University of the Arts (Hochschule für Künste) in Bremen, Germany for many years. He was also a judge of many classical guitar competitions and a teacher of many generations of excellent players.

Professor Bernard Hebb was born in the state of Massachusetts in the USA and began his guitar studies there with Francis LaPierre. He continued his studies in Vienna, Austria with Professor Karl Scheit and in 1969 he graduated with his Master’s degree.

He was also a guest professor at the „Escuela de Música de la Universidad de Guanajuato“ in Mexico.

Professor Hebb was one of the founding members of the Zevener Guitar Week (Zevener Gitarrenwoche) and a judge of many international guitar festivals. He taught masterclasses and performed concerts in the USA, Australia and many other countries, including the European continent.

Among other recognitions for his merits, Professor Hebb received the 1973 Gold Medal of Honor from the “Federation of Worker’s Music Association” of Austria (VAMÖ), the Pakhus Prize from the “Århus Art Academy”, Denmark (2002), the Silver Medal (2005) from the city of Zeven and he has been included in Who’s Who in the World (USA) since 2006.
