My name is Mike and I operate out of the Dayton, OH area. I have 11 years experience teaching music in public schools and would love to have you study with me. I am a percussionist by nature, and that's where my expertise lies, but I am able to help out beginning to intermediate guitarists and pianists. I believe strongly in crafting well-rounded students and would love to have the opportunity to work with you.
Guitar, Classical Guitar
My name is Theodore and I am a classical guitarist. I began studying music as a pop/rock guitarist in my teen years and eventually pursued the music field in college. Transferring from Sinclair Community College to Wright State University as an undergraduate I majored in music history and literature.
I attended Wright State University, where I graduated with Latin honors in June of 2007 with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education.
Among the numerous honors I received during my matriculation at Wright State University, I was on the Dean’s List every quarter, and won the highest distinction offered by the Department of Music by winning the coveted Wright State University Concerto Night Competition in February of 2007. I was also a 2004 and 2006 winner of the department Honors Recital, and a recipient of the WSU Chamber Players “Beethoven Award.” In June of 2004, I joined the Wright State University Wind Symphony on a tour of Japan, where I performed as a featured soloist.
In the fall of 2007, I began my graduate studies for a Master of Music in music performance degree at the University of Florida. While working towards my degree, I served as a graduate teaching assistant for the flute studio at the University of Florida. I taught MUS 2450, an undergraduate course in instrumental skills, was the applied flute instructor to undergraduates pursuing a minor in flute performance, and gave masterclasses and lecture-presentations to the flute studio on performance practices, the history of the flute, and important pedagogical figures in flute.
My teaching experiences include working with several high school bands in Ohio and Florida and serving as Assistant Director for Flutopia, a summer flute camp experience. I have taught private music lessons for 12 years. As a staff member at the Interlochen Arts Camp, I studied flute with the principal flutist of the San Antonio Symphony, Tallon Perkes, and worked as a guest clinician for the Junior Division band.
Professionally, I was a contracted flutist with the Ocala Symphony for two years while I worked on my graduate degree in flute.

With over 35 years of experience in both public and private music instruction and direction, I've found that most of us seek a personal relationship with our music. This "personal passion" is what I use in developing each individual instructional plan. Maybe you've decided it's time to begin that second woodwind instrument, or perhaps you want to accompany your church choir. Why not blow the dust off that old clarinet in the attic Whatever your goal, I'd love to help..
