Michael C.

Catawba, NC

About Michael

I have a Masters Degree from Central Michigan Univ. I am an Air Force Veteran.

Two deep leadership at all times and parents have waiting areas visible to classes. I love guitar and playing music, I
think I have taught so long I would not know what to do without a music/teaching career. I have made a living playing guitar for 25 years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been a music teacher so long I have become very simplistic. I teach the following:

(1) To practically play while having fun (3 locations to choose).

(2) Music Theory.

(3) Playing by ear.

(4) Leadership Skills. I am still having a great time teaching, so we do it a lot. I love to teach and enjoy it very much, I owe a lot to my music career and want to pass it on. We are in Rotary and support many community activities.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have - 3 Professional teaching studios - that are in nice locations.

I really enjoy my job and have a lot of great equipment; we work hard, but have a lot of fun too.

*** Travel Equipment ***
(1) Respectfully what is reasonable. I am a full time musician, I am flexible and happy - we can work these things out.

(We have a lot of equipment, I am very thankful). We have very good business relationships in the community.

I appreciate my job.

*** Specialties ***
(1) Group interactive method based on theory.
(2) Students show leadership in their own program.
(3) Students work with me (instructor) on Lesson Plans.
(4) Students pick out material they want to study.
(5) Students work on (ear training) and reading music.

Michael is an exceptionaly talented musician, as well as a wonderful mentor who has taught so many students and enriched their lives. He has students with only 2 yrs of experience who sound as if they have been playing for 20 years! What a Role Model!!! With a lifetime of experience under his belt, Michael has mastered music and recording. He will help you; It really doesn't get any better than that. I am a reporter for a good paper. I wrote this about Michael after an interview. Michael and his band had the placed packed, all ages, and everyone insisted on being as close to the music as humanly possible. Michael works as a guitar instructor and runs several studios. Michael is truly a "gifted guitar player" and his vocals are just as nice and polished. The Next time this gifted musician and band rolls into town check him out.

Hello, my name is Clinton. I specialize is acoustic/traditional music. I have a bachelor's degree in Bluegrass, Old-Time and Country Music from East Tennessee State University (class of 2014). My perf

I have taught private lessons since 2008 to a wide variety of students of different ages and skill levels. My areas of focus at East Tennessee State University were upright bass/bass guitar and the mandolin family of instruments. But I also teach guitar and I intentionally apply music theory skills to all students.
