Our first lesson with Michael went well. My 7yo son was a little nervous about taking lessons for the first time, but Michael had him playing some notes on the piano and talking soon after we started the lesson. He's looking forward to more lessons with him.

My daughters (8,4) take piano, violin, and voice with Mike, and have for 6+months. Mike is super patient, while teaching not only theory, but also ensuring the girls understand musicality. His style really encourages confidence, and pride in what the girls are able to accomplish. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to take lessons

I've really enjoyed my lessons with Michael. He's a good and patient teacher

I teach:
TENOR BANJO - MANDOLIN - TENOR GUITAR - ACOUSTIC GUITAR
Please go to the instrument listing and it will explain about that particular Instrument.

Hello,
I first want to explain about the Tenor Banjo it's different from the 5 string Banjo used mostly in Bluegrass and Country.

Tenor Banjo has 4 strings, it comes in 17 fret and 19 fret and generally used in Irish/Celtic and Jazz music.

Irish /Celtic music you play single note melodies and in Jazz the majority of the time you strum.

Standard Tuning: C, G, D, A - Same as a Viola and Cello
Irish Tenor Tuning: G, D, A, E - Same as a Mandolin and Violin
Chicago Tuning: D, G, B, E - This tuning is the same as the first four strings of a guitar

The name "Tenor" has nothing to do with the pitch, I read it was a mistake somewhere in history as 4 string banjos were used in American Tango in the 20th century called Tango Banjos, then somewhere changed to Tenor through time.

I accommodate all students differently ...

Antonio is such a kind and patient teacher. He was able
to get me started on the basics of the tenor banjo in our first lesson and even made me my own binder of music for me to practice at home. It’s hard to come by someone who actually knows the tenor banjo and I feel lucky to have found a great teacher! He really look the time to make sure I felt comfortable practicing for our next session. I am looking forward to continuing my studies with Antonio.

Are Heavy Metal Banjos The Next Big Thing?

Loud, jangly, and twangy, the banjo is an instrument with a distinctive voice that immediately evokes the spirit of the American South. Long a mainstay of bluegrass music, banjos have recently been incorporated into pop music as well by bands like Mumford and Sons. And, if YouTube trends are any indication, it looks like the banjo is making another genre shift! A pack of viral videos featuring banjo covers of hard rock classics are making the rounds and proving that banjos can shred just a …
