About Me

Thanks for checking out my profile! I would love to help you discover, strengthen and improve your voice.

Here's a little bit about me: I attended Syracuse University where I received a bachelor's degree in vocal performance. I then traveled down south to get my Master's from Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth, TX. I served as Administrative Director for the Gregg Smith Singers' Adirondack Festival of American Music in Lake Placid, NY and performed with the all-female a cappella ensemble, The Mandarins, for whom I was director and vocal percussionist, as well as a Varsity Vocals award-winning soloist and arranger. I've played the role of Marcellina in Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro, as well as lead roles in Anything Goes, Me and My Girl, Annie Warbucks and Oliver. I have performed with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, traveled internationally with the Southwestern Jazz Combo and have been a featured artist on the FEBC radio station in Seoul, Korea. For the past few years I have judged many singing competitions in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey. I'm currently Director of Music Ministry at Mount Bethel Church and a vocal instructor for a large studio specializing in opera, musical theatre, jazz and church music.

Subjects Taught

Guitar

About Me

The guitar has the capacity to energize or to sooth. My desire is to help you encounter and master it's power!

PHILOSOPHY

I enjoy helping my students maximize their potential as musicians. Whether their longing is to simply enjoy guitar as a recreational pastime, or they desire (or have) a career in performance, I endeavor to help my students achieve their personal musical goals. You are encouraged to strive to do your part to the best of your ability: that is, consistent and regular practice. Discipline is vital to progress, and without it, the experience would be shallow and unsatisfying. But with skilled, caring instruction and self-motivation, you will encounter the might of the guitar and the beauty of it! I will be cheering you on and supporting you every step of the way!

EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE

Although I've always been a fan of British invasion, my childhood guitar teacher told me he wasn't going to teach me "any of that rock 'n' roll garbage." He was going to teach me "the right way," and he did. Through traditional drills and repetitions, I didn't learn to play just "songs," but learned to play music. The solid foundational instruction I received enabled me to recognize the difference, and you will too, regardless of your preference in style or genre.

In 1981, I completed the Certificate Program: Record Production, Sound Re-enforcement from Jon Miller School for the Recording Arts & Sciences. In 1982, I studied Musical Composition at Berklee College of Music in Boston, where I gained a wealth of knowledge. In 1990, I earned an Associates Degree in Liberal Arts, Music Emphasis from Northampton County Area Community College in PA. Since 1999, I've been serving as Director of REZ Music Ministry. Additionally, since 2009, I have served as Pastor of Worship Arts at The Gospel Chapel from 2009-2013. Related strengths include singing, songwriting, recording and producing.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons utilize Mel Bay's Modern Guitar Method, the world's premier guitar course of instruction. After three months, you should have a good understanding of this basic material necessary to play contemporary guitar, and within six months, elementary harmonies are studied and elaborated upon. As you progress, you will be taken through scale and technical exercises in a careful and challenging manner, yet in a comfortable atmosphere with plenty of encouragement.

Don't be embarrassed of making mistakes; I will celebrate your accomplishments with you as you persevere. I have plenty of patience and supplemental materials to aid you in your progress.

Weekly exercise and song assignments are given to help you develop strong technique and understand essential music theory. The commitment to daily practice and the importance of adequate preparation cannot be exaggerated. At the same time, the freedom of creativity fosters a passion for the guitar and prevents the boredom of solely playing by rote. There is a short path from boredom to quitting. With the guitar being such a powerful art form, you can be assured that with plenty of practice and persistence, you will enjoy a lifetime of musical blessedness!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Guitars, amplifiers, music stands, recording equipment, seating.

About Me

A professional musician and music instructor for over 30 years, Mike has established himself as not only a world class player but also an excellent teacher of all ages and skill levels. He teaches for several area conservatories and hosts master classes on composition, performance, guitar and bass improvisation. Mike now offers lessons in his professional home studio.

*** Lesson Details ***
Mike's approach is to use the student's own musical tastes to develop an appreciation for the instrument. If you like rock, you learn by playing rock. If you like jazz, you learn by playing jazz. Mike's approach makes it painless to learn to read, train your ear and develop monster chops quickly.

*** Studio Equipment ***
1) Recording studio - 1200 square feet - all instruments and seating for parents

2) Private teaching room w/ all instruments and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
For the last few years I've had good results teaching theory as part of a greater performance focus. I've taught Hal Leonard and Suzuki Method in the past, but find this more enjoyable and rewarding for the students.
