My experience is a mile wide AND a mile deep. I'm an expert in vocals, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, and piano. I'm a former 4.0 music theory student with a BA in classical and operatic voice. I have 15 years of live gig experience in pop, rock, soul, gospel, worship, and country music.

I've been teaching the foundations of acoustic guitar, bass guitar, vocal techniques, piano, and music theory since 2010, and I can put you on the fast track to musical greatness! I love teaching, especially beginners!

Mikey takes the time to learn how you learn best. He's very patient with you no matter what you are struggling with. His smile, good attitude, and passion for music were qualities that stood out to me during my time with Mikey. He's a very talented musician with all sorts of instruments and is able to give you a high skill level in what ever he teaches.

I started taking lessons with Mikey having little to no previous knowledge of anything guitar related, and he was extremely patient and helpful throughout. I learned more quickly with him than I probably would have if I started with any other instructor. He has an outstanding love for music that made his lessons a unique and great experience. I'd absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a really genuine and very skilled instructor!
