Travel the world through music from the comfort of any seat in your home. I have been doing this for the past twelve years with my guitar. I have been through the rivers and amazons of Brazil, getting to know their rhythms that influenced the catchy Bossa Nova; I have walked the muck and mud of Southern USA, playing the Blues and training my fingerstyle technique to imitate that of my idols, and I have cleaned through the distorted grit of Rock around the world to find my own voice. These are only a few places I have travelled. After my education in Guitar, Production, and Songwriting at Berklee College of Music, I can help you cater to the lesson plan you need to take your skills to the next level, the next venue, and the pieces inside of you waiting to be manifested into notes. When do we start?

Michael is a careful, patient and fun teacher. He took time to make sure I was learning and applying my new guitar skills. He would not move beyond until I got it. I highly recommend Michael for beginners and intermediate guitar players.

Michael is always enthusiastic and excited to work with my daughter on her guitar skills. He makes afternoon activities something my daughter thoroughly looks forward to. Michael is passionate about music and it is contagious to all his students! Ask Michael to teach you or your kids!!!

My two boys were shy and inexperienced guitar wanna-be players. Michael opened up his home and his heart and slowly but surely built confidence within them. He has the patience and kindness that were necessary for my boys. However, he knew when and how to push them to become better and more confident with each class. His methods were unique and effective. They looked forward to Wednesday afternoons with Michael. Although we have moved away, my children speak highly of the kind and experienced player that Michael was with them when they needed it most. I recommend Michael!

Michael is a real rockstar! Being classically trained he knows all the ins and outs of music theory, strumming and finger picking techniques and any groove you might want to learn! Michael is extremely versatile in the styles of music he masters on the guitar while being patient, funny and incredibly encouraging! Besides being highly proficient on the guitar, he manages to let production, songwriting and singing he a part of the lesson. Michael taught me how to be confident in my voice as a musician and inspires me to be better at guitar playing everyday!

Michael is incredible at teaching guitar. I took lessons with him for two years in Boston and was always welcome at his shows. He is very patient, which was necessary with me and super kind - never a negative word from him, which made me eager to learn and practise more.

I also really enjoy his music and Mexican style, which gives his compositions a cool twist.

I recommend taking lessons from Michael to anyone, who is on the lookout to learn from a born star, that is all about music!
