Hello everybody, my name is Michael and I have been playing both the guitar and piano since I was four years old (19 years). Over the past few years my emphasis has been guitar playing but I make a point to keep up my piano skills as well. I currently do work teaching children with autism, and I have started teaching several of them to play the piano during the work day, and perform children's songs for them on the guitar during music time frequently. My main musical interests include acoustic and country music, but I have spent time learning several other types of music as well. I am looking to teach beginner to intermediate students and help them learn/perfect the basics of acoustic guitar (I have several guitars and will allow students to use them if they don't have guitars of their own).

The Shape of Behavior

Over the last couple of years I have spent my days working as a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT). As an RBT I have learned not only to manage challenging behaviors of children with autism, but also how to keep them engaged and learning at all times. These skills have helped immensely with my ability to teach guitar lessons, especially when it comes to children who need a little extra motivation to keep learning and practicing.
