*** Lesson Details ***
Everyone has the ability to learn. Do not let someone tell you different. It is either the wrong
teacher or wrong method for you if you are having difficulty. It is never the student.
I use many combined methods to fit the individual student accoring to their skill level, desires and overcoming any difficulties. I have two recitals a year and video tape them so the student can see and hear their progress.

In addition to piano I also teach keyboard, organ, improve, stand up comedy, recording, and
ballroom dance ( won grand nationals in tango ).

*** Studio Equipment ***
professional studio seating for parents
yamaha studio stage w/ piano seating for parents
vidoe and audio recording

*** Travel Equipment ***

*** Specialties ***
Each students course is custom designed to ther needs and goals

I've only had a few lessons with Michael, but have enjoyed what and how he has taught me so far. He has been flexible with some changes to our schedule and he is on time.

Michael is very knowledgable in music. I see it at every rehearsal. He has taught me to actually read music.! He's very patient and answer all questions, I would recommend him any day., not to mention he plays beautifully .

Katie loves taking lessons with Mr. Mike. She practices because she wants to show him what she learned at home. No pressure, just fun, and she is thriving.
I am so happy we found Mr. Mike!

This was Joey's first lesson, ever...and he can't wait to come back. Both my boys went home and showed their father what they learned today...They were so excited.
