I have been playing guitar since the age of 9. I have studied Classical, and Jazz at CCM's Prep Dept. in middle school and throughout high school as well as rock, folk, country etc. with other local teachers. I started teaching lessons at the age of 18 in local music stores and have never stopped. While doing this I attended The College of Mount St. Joseph where I studied Classical and Jazz guitar as well as Music Ed. In addition to my 22 years of private lesson experience, I have 2 years of classroom experience teaching general music in elementary schools. I believe it is my years as a student and instructor that enable me to be an effective teacher, having had learned what worked for me as a student, and what has shown to work as a teacher.
Guitar, Classical Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory
I have been studying the guitar for most of my life and began teaching when I was 16. I have been given to opportunity to learn from some of the best musicians and teachers around. I regularly give performances throughout the Cincinnati area, as well as in surrounding states. I earned a bachelors of music in Guitar performance at The College-Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati. While there I was able to meet musicians with different approaches to music and broaden my perspective on the way that I played and taught.
I have taught students of all ages and skill levels and have been able to watch my students meet goals of all sorts in lessons. One of the studios that I teach at was also recognized in the category or "Best Music Instruction" by Cincy Magazine.
If you have never picked up an instrument before, I would love to introduce you to the basics of music as well as the guitar. If you have played some guitar, or another instrument, and are looking to hone your skills and maximize your potential, it would be my pleasure to help you along that track.
Guitar, Piano, Singing
I have taught the piano along with guitar and voice for over 40 years, since I was 16 years old. I started lessons at 9 and continued lessons while I began teaching beginners at a music studio. Since then I have had many different experiences with all kinds of students. I love sharing the gift of music with my students. My goal is to give them a wonderful musical experience and allow them to expand their knowledge of music in a structured manner and can grow to become a casual or professional musician.

Mike graduated from Grant County High School in 1997 where he was a member of their KY State Champion Marching Band. A highly recognized trumpet player by trade and a guitarist by hobby, Mike received scholarship offers to EKU, UK, Morehead and NKU for trumpet. Choosing to stay near home, Mike chose NKU. During his tenure at NKU, Mike became a member of the Symphonic Winds, Jazz Band and the Brass Ensemble and was quick to be noticed as a great asset to the music program. However, as his musical skills and reputation grew, Mike noticed a growing pain in his left ear, followed by bleeding shortly after. After visiting his specialist, Mike learned that 40 percent of his eardrum had collapsed from the back pressure from playing the trumpet. While the days of playing the brass instruments were over, music was still Mike’s passion.
With music in his blood, Mike moved from playing trumpet to focusing on guitar and music theory to complete his degree. The Guitar Professor complained that everything Mike did was wrong and he would have to be re-taught how to play. After this news, no major instrument to play for proficiency tests and a bad case of Mono his junior year, he finally gave up his fight with the school moved on with life. After a short lived job as Assistant Store Manager for Willis Music, Mike began teaching guitar part time for Music Maker’s in Florence. At the same time he taught lessons, Mike’s primary focus was on his Band; Black Roses. Composed of two high school buddies and one new one, Black Roses began playing all over the region with a growing fan base. Things were going well until their drummer was offered a job in Florida and had to leave immediately… Black Roses was without its heartbeat… Disillusioned, the band went their separate ways. Mike briefly reformed a new version of Black Roses, but that was short lived due to a number of issues (including another problem with the new drummer). Mike, determined not to cancel dates booked by an agent, created a plan to play the gigs himself with the full sound of an entire band. After five 20 hour hour days locked in his basement studio, Mike had arranged, played, sang and recorded 40 “backing tracks”—more than enough for an entire show. OMEB was about to rise.
After a few shows as "the Band formerly known as Black Roses”, Mike realized this new approach was the way to go. And jokingly one patron said after playing the song “Signs” by the Five Man Electric Band, “Hey look, it’s the One Man Electrical Band”! And it stuck. Club owners decided the new name was too much to put on the sign... so "OMEB" has become the standard and now registered trademark. Since then, OMEB’s Library has expanded to nearly 180 songs ranging from Pink Floyd to Pantera (with even a little Queen while still playing his stapled Gn’R and Black Sabbath). OMEB has become a namesake in the Cincinnati Area, rocking venues from east to west and north to south! He has been featured on the Main Stage for the WEBN fireworks since 2007, has played for Shannon Sylvia (Ghost Hunters International) and even Country Music Legend, Bobby Mackey! In 2012 Mike has opened for rock acts REO Speedwagon, Ted Nugent, Poison, Def Leppard, Journey, Nickelback, STYX, Bush, Pat Benetar, Motley Crue & KISS. He has travelled to clubs as far away as Massachusetts and Florida!
In the summer of 2008 Mike finally decided to leave safety of teaching for a private consortium and open the OMEB School of Rock. There has been no looking back since, as his student base has exploded. Mike is leading the way in teaching the next generation of guitar students. He has written and published his own guitar method book entitled “The Book of OMEB” teaching kids the virtues of rock n’ roll. The OMEB School of Rock and its students have performed with OMEB at many local venues, festivals and local radio stations.
In late 2010 Mike opened OMEB Studios, finally offering the services to others that he has always provided to himself. Clients include Bobby Mackey, Gary Strong Bluegrass Band, Jesse Brewer of Cincinnati Properties, George Ciccarone (13 time Emmy winner and Reality TV Show Producer) and most recently Zak Bagans (Ghost Adventures) album, Necrofusion. Mike along with his long time friend, Jim Comodeca, wrote original music that was considered for a made for TV movie sponsored by Walmart and P&G. Although a positive reaction from Randy Jackson, the music did not quite fit the overall theme of the movie OMEB is also currently writing an album with Bobby Mackey entitled “Rockin’ the Country” as they battle out their stylistic difference to meet somewhere in the middle for an unheard of pairing.
Since 2006 OMEB has obtained endorsements from BC Rich Guitars, Kustom Amplification, Michael Kelley Guitars, Tregan Guitars, Monster Tone Guitar Pickups, Sfazro Guitar Strings, Graphtech, Cserni Guitar Straps and Monster Guitar Picks!
Guitar, Mandolin, Ukulele
I learned to read music from age 10 playing the Lap Guitar today known as the Steal Guitar. Around 1964 I started teaching and at that time switched to Finger style. And later took up Mandolin and other stringed instruments. My lessons teach you just what you want to learn weather its chords, note reading or how to learn the patterns on how to play by ear. So the bottom line with my students is you must be willing to practice and practice. Because memory don't work until its embedded in the brain and that only happens with practice. I always ask just how many years did it take you to learn to wright you name. Well learning to play and instrument is no different. Practice is the key and the more you do the quicker you learn.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
