Mike S.

Lehighton, PA

About Mike

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.

I very much enjoy the time I share and learn with Mike. He has been very patient with my slow learning curve. I have noticed that he caters to a person's strengths, which works for me since I have been slowly learning technique and muscle coordination in respect to playing the violin.

I highly recommend anyone at any age to call upon Mike for instrumental instruction.

To TakeLessons, thank you for offering a system that lets people connect with highly competent instructors.

Mike has been very patient and helpful and takes the time to carefully explain the instruction given. Besides being a great teacher Mike is very personable and that makes the lessons stress free. Taking lessons from an accomplished working musician is the best possible choice.
Thank you Mike for taking me on as a student!

Mike is the best!!

I always wanted to learn Violin, but at 26 I thought I'd never get very far. Mike is teaching me Improvisation so that I can jam with my bluegrass friends. After 9 months of lessons with Mike, I am starting to really understand my instrument and am able to jam with my friends! I never thought I would progress this quickly and I know that is all due to the way Mike has taught me and teaching me certain things every week that I can build on and practice at home. I definitely recommend Mike for lessons on any instrument, he is a talented multi-instrumentalist who is interested in all genres of music from classical to country, he is accessible and doesn't make you feel like an idiot when you don't get it right, but he is also tough enough on you that you progress very quickly. He is also interested in teaching you what you want to learn, the right way, so you can get the most out of your musical experience. Playing fiddle is now one of my favorite things to do, I get so much joy out of it, all thanks to Mike and a little hard work!! :)

Fred L.

Reading, PA

I teach drummers of all skill levels and ages. I teach the rudiments, beats, fills, notation, sight-reading, and also try to make lessons fun by allowing students to learn songs that they listen to, while encouraging creativity.

About Fred

I've been playing drums for the past 20 years, and have been a studio drummer for multiple albums, while touring both nationally and internationally with different music groups. I've been teaching drums for the past 5 years, and have seen over 30 students become more skilled musicians over that span of time. In addition to teaching drums, I'm also a substitute assistant teacher for the BCIU in the Reading School District, and have a bachelors of science in Youth Ministry from Valley Forge Christian College. My goal with teaching drums is to make lessons 1. affordable, 2. fun, and 3. effective. I believe that music plays an important role in the lives of humans, and it is very beneficial to be able to play an instrument. For myself, drumming is more than just a hobby; it's a passion. I ...
