Learn Guitar, Bass and Music Theory with an industry professional!
I have a degree in Jazz guitar from Temple University and am an expert in music theory from the perspective of a jazz musician. I specialize in Pop Music, Brazilian Bossa Nova Guitar and Rock Guitar. On tour, I played Bass and Guitar for Kali Uchis when she opened for Lana Del Rey in 2018. As a producer I have several Gold and Platinum records and wrote the guitar part for "La La Land" (feat. YG) by Bryce Vine. Before I started composing for commercials, TV and records I worked as an instructor at La Salle College High School in the Philadelphia area and also taught private lessons on the side. I composed the Original Series theme for EPIX and sound designed the HULU original series theme as well.
About Michael O.

Hi! I have a very diverse musical background and have been teaching since my college days at Temple University. I love to teach Guitar/Bass and can help you learn your favorite songs, learn a new style, master one you're already working on and discover new genres you didn't even know existed! I am a Platinum certified music producer and have also had many compositions I've written placed in Commercials, TV and Film as well. If you're looking to improve in any of these areas, I can help!
