College trained Jazz/Blues musician with extensive experience performing, composing, and teaching over the past decade.

About the lesson

My goal as a teacher is to make you a better musician and not just a better guitar player. I believe the most essential aspect of teaching music is to give students the ability to feel comfortable in any style the wish both through understanding the music by ear and through notation.

About Michael

I have taught a variety of ages from children as young as eight to adults. I began teaching from a very young age and now have been teaching for the past ten years. Through my lessons my students have learned to become confident and knowledgeable performing musicians.
