What a fun way to spend our quarantine time! Michael was a great bagpipe instructor for my teenage son. He helped him to find the right equipment and made playing the bagpipes fun from the very first lesson. Thanks, Michael!

I can't wait for my next lesson!
Diego
We're super impressed with Michael's teaching style. This is my son's second attempt at learning to play bagpipes. Michael makes it fun, in that he starts teaching songs right away, not only notes. He is very patient and explains what he is teaching.

I've been teaching one-on-one lessons for about 25yrs, in Guitar, Bass, & Drums. Lessons are personalized & tailored to each student's needs & goals, in their own style of learning. No matter your age or ability, whether just for fun to learn a favorite song or something long term and serious, I do it all. I have a lot to share with you in all styles of music and playing. Together we can shave years off your learning curve. And if you'd like to know theory, and how to write and produce your own songs, we'll do that too! Let me know if you have any questions, and if you'd like to see references from former students! Hope to connect with you soon!

Mike has been a fabulous teacher for our son for the past 2 years! Mike allows Gabriel to try lots of new music while still teaching him the fundamentals of guitar. He has provided a safe and creative space for our son to musically grow in. We couldn't be happier with him as a teacher.
Don
Mike is a patient, qualified guitar teacher for me. I am a beginner older adult. Mike is creating lessons that are in the style I want to learn.
I am getting much more than just 30 or 60 minutes a week. He puts together lessons and songs of interest, that he emails to me between lessons.
Very glad to have found Mike.

I’ve tried a few online lesson services, but the weekly one on one with Mike has kept me more motivated and challenged. So for me, he is a much better fit.
Mitchell
I've had mike for many years now. I'm always excited to see him and learn/play guitar with him. He is kind, nice and a really good friend.
