About the lesson
I can teach technique, songwriting, theory lessons, or any style the student prefers. Each lesson will be specifically tailored to a student's individual needs and musical desires. My style is very "goal-oriented," and I will teach students to set short-term goals, medium goals, and then demonstrate to them how reaching the short and medium-term goals leads to accomplishing long-term goals. This system allows students to remain motivated and track their progress as efficiently as possible.

I am a graduate of Berklee College of Music where I was the first rock/metal guitarist to receive the "Jimi Hendrix Award." This award is given to the best guitarist at the school. I've played and studied many styles of music ranging from classical, traditional blues, country, rock, and metal. Besides teaching, I have a passion for songwriting and performance; while in Boston, I played and recorded with the melodic metal band Black Trip. With Black Trip, I was fortunate enough to open up for such bands as Cannibal Corpse, Sabaton, Children of Bodom, Rhapsody of Fire, and Doro. As of recently, I am teaching in Los Angeles and writing music for my band. Aside from a teacher, I would define myself as a "guitar nerd" because I love every aspect of playing. I still practice between 6-8 hours a day and have an insatiable hunger for new opportunities to play and learn.
Michael has incredible patience with students from beginner to extremely advanced. His excitement about mastering guitar is infectious. He instills confidence in any student and is genuinely thrilled when they achieve their goals. I highly recommend Michael as a teacher.
Michael is an amazing guitar player! He is extremely disciplined with a wide array of experiences. He was acclaimed by peers and professors at Berklee. Michael brings the dedication and talent that will help students succeed. If you want to learn from the best of the best, learn from Michael!
