Highly recommended: Amazing teacher!

Mike is a patient, supportive and incredibly talented teacher. From music theory to practical application, he's got all the answers... And he makes learning fun!

I took guitar lessons more than ten years ago and found it frustrating and I was terribly uninspired. Recently I took my old guitar out of mothballs and was determined to make some progress on the dang thing. A good friend recommended Mike and I've been taking lessons for nine months with him.

What's great about Mike is that he customizes my lessons. I'm not learning out of a book (which, I could if wanted) but I'm learning the songs that I love and learning the theory behind the chords, too. Then he keeps building on what we just learned. I go home from my hour lessons and play for another two hours because I'm so inspired.

I can't recommend Mike highly enough. He's a gem of a music instructor in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles.

I've been studying with Pat for 5 years and I find him to be a wonderful teacher. Under his instruction, my guitar playing/technique has improved greatly. He is very patient. I highly recommend him.
Jon R. Van Nuys, CA

Music has been a part of my life since I was very young. I fully understand and empathize with the fact that not everyone learns at the same pace, or even in the same way. With that being said, I try and see things from the students perspective, and teach in a variety of differing ways to better recognize what works best for that particular individual.

About Jon

Hello and welcome! I'm Jon, a 23 year old who just moved to Los Angeles from Boston. I recently graduated from Berklee College of Music '13, as a Professional Musician with guitar as my principle instrument. I have been playing for 10+years and have studied with over 25 different teachers (including Greg Howe, Joe Stump, etc.), so I know what does and doesn't work with students. From Progressive Rock, to Blues, to Jazz, Classical and odd meter Fusion, I have a versatile pallet of styles and genre's to teach and introduce you to. Within only a few lessons, I promise to have you on the way to being the player you only dream of.
