Michael is one of the most gifted guitarist that I have ever known, as well as being a very calm and patient human being. His lessons are not just about learning songs, he wants you to learn how to play the instrument, so that you can learn the songs yourself. His knowledge of music will amaze you and he is more than happy to share it with you. I went from only being able to play a few chords to actually being able to play with a band because of Michael. I promise you will not regret choosing him as your teacher,
