My students' musical interests, goals and abilities dictate the direction that we select for their lesson plans. By recognizing and understanding each students learning style, I use techniques/methods that are suited to that particular student. This improves the speed and the quality of learning.
I am flexible and easy going but focused - and I encourage my students to do the same. I want my students to succeed and be able to play the music that they enjoy!

I use various techniques,methods and combinations ranging from Hal Leonard, Mel Bay, Berklee Music, Suzuki, YouTube videos and video to record particular lesson segments (which I then email to students to view as an aid during their home practice sessions).

I just started to learn how to play guitar. It is hard to learn , but Micheal makes it easier to learn.

I just had my first lesson with Michael. He was a friendly guy and a solid guitarist. We started to hone in on my goals and put together a plan; off to a good start.

My 9 year old daughter has been taking weekly lessons with Michael for about 6 months. In that time, her guitar skills have really progressed. Michael is a very patient instructor who strives to make each lesson an enjoyable learning experience. My daughter is inspired to practice, and she looks forward to her lesson each week.
