May 2001

I am formerly a resident of Seattle who recently moved down to the Bay Area. I now attend San Jose State for Music Ed. I studied music at the University of Washington and my fortes include jazz, blues, classical, pop, punk, metal, theory, songwriting, ear training and generally learning to speak on your instrument. I work with all levels of ability and commitment. Realize your passion and start playing music today!

I tend to be laid back and relaxed but focused in my lessons. I will use a combination of method books and worksheets of my own construction. I also utilize recording equipment so the student can hear what he or she sounds like. The focus of these lessons can be tailored to the student- s/he can learn to read or simply jam on his or her favorite songs.

learning an instrument is fun! My 10 year old son is really enjoying playing guitar with Michael. He is learning some serious stuff mixed with playing chords from his favourite bands. My 8 year old daughter has also started piano with him and she has really progressed in her playing in only 6 weeks or so. Michael is very patient and great with them and they really look forward to him coming every week. I would recommend him highly
