About Me


I have been taking lessons from Mike for nearly three years, and I never would have guessed I'd be such a good player in this amount of time. Before I even bought my first guitar he offered suggestions and advice on what to look for and good beginner amps. It became apparent rather quickly that Mike knows his stuff. He asked me a few questions about the music I like (Pink Floyd) and how I decided to learn guitar (from watching David Gilmour). This way he could determine what types of music I'd enjoy playing. Mike teaches music theory so I learn "why" in addition to "how". He uses actual songs to demonstrate the theory he teaches so in the first few lessons I was already playing song I liked. Instead of "memorizing" a song I "learn" it. It really keeps me motivated and having fun. Learning the music theory (scales, chords, etc.) makes it easier to learn music and to come up with my own solos or riffs. I'm 25 years old and I believe Mike has been playing guitar for about that long. He will teach you just about any type of music you want to learn and he will teach at your pace. I've never considered looking for another guitar teacher and I'm very happy with my decision.
