Read music, play by ear, improvise, finger style, with a pick, soloing, chord melody... The guitar is my life's passion, It would be my pleasure to share my knowledge with you. I am comfortable teaching all levels and styles of guitar.
I have been teaching music for 20 years. I grew up on the 2nd floor of my father's music store in Central PA and have been around music my whole life. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Music Performance from the University of the Arts where I studied jazz guitar with Pat Martino, Jimmy Bruno, Steve Giordano, and Tom Giacabetti. I was one of the original teachers during the formative years at the Paul Green School of Rock Music where I later went on to be the Music Director of the Philadelphia and Downingtown Schools. During that time, I helped many students prepare and get accepted to music schools, ran and developed music summer camps, and organized concerts where the students performed the music of Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, and many more of rock's finest band at every major venue in ...
Guitar can be fun and exciting for playing any musical style. Beginners will be able to quickly jam on their instrument while experienced players can further develop their skills in technique, theory, chords, improvisation, ear training, learning songs, and so much more. Lessons are uniquely different from student to student depending on your goals and interests.
Music has been a lifelong pursuit for me. I have played many instruments over the years while performing with various groups in and out of school. Eventually I decided that music was how I wanted to make my living. Since earning my degree in Instrumental Performance/Jazz Studies from University of the Arts in Philadelphia, I have been performing and teaching professionally. I have had the pleasure of studying and working with some of the finest musicians. Each day brings new and exciting challenges to be met. I have really enjoyed the journey to this point and am looking forward to more great things in the future. My lessons are available to anyone who wants to grow musically. They can be as simple or as challenging as you like. I move at your pace and strive for every lesson to ...
I can be as sophisticated as needed, or as bare bones as needed. I am here to cater to the individuals' preferred method of learning. I believe in building a strong foundation, and will only push you as far as you can handle. We will move forward at a pace that fits with the individual, as some learn faster than others and some are able to devote more time than others. I am here to help you along the musical path of your choosing. If you are unsure of what musical path to embark on, yet you know you just want to get started, I will do my best to open your ears and eyes to all of the possibilities that potentially lie ahead.
I have been teaching on and off since 2005, and consistently since mid 2012. I use a number of materials from Musicians Institute curriculum (the school which I graduated from) and have also worked from various Hal Leonard and Mel Bay beginner books. My teaching philosophy is to exploit the origin; meaning one must have a full understanding of what comes ...

Michael C. was eleven years old when he began to play the electric bass guitar. He decided to get an electric bass because it was the one instrument needed to start a band among his friends. In addition to playing the electric bass, Michael enjoyed time practicing on the guitar and piano in high school. Transferring the knowledge and finger technique to the guitar came easy because of the similarities between guitar and the bass. And growing up with an upright piano in the house always lead to tinkering and eventually became a proficiency after college. In 1996 Michael enrolled at the the Philadelphia University of the Arts. He was awarded a presidential merit scholarship and a university grant based on his entrance audition. During his studies Michael was recruited for a student ...
If you want to get started with guitar, I'm the one you've been looking for. I'll get you started with basic theory, then I'll gradually move on to more advanced topics. I have a good background in this subject. I've actually taught this subject to a student who already had seven years experience; he didn't know how to put chords together in the right way. Guitar can be fun!
