Hello and thank you for considering me as your teacher!

Are you looking to improve upon your abilities?
Are you looking for motivation?
Are you hoping to find a teacher who can provide a balance between discipline and fun?
Are you looking to find a teacher who will teach you the music YOU want to learn?

I have over 20 years teaching experience, working in many venues, including K-12 public schools, private lessons and university instruction. Currently, I am a Graduate Teaching Fellow in music theory at the University of Oregon, where I teach undergraduate music theory and ear training. I am also an experienced performer, having worked and toured with bands who are currently a part of the national country music scene, along with those who have established themselves in the Los Angeles music scene. I am also a classically trained guitarist. I have earned bachelor's degrees in Music Education and Guitar Performance. I hope to share my strong passion for the guitar and Music Theory with you, and assist you to reach all of your learning goals. For me, teaching is one of the most exciting aspects of my career, and I look forward to giving you all the tools you need to learn exactly what you wish.

I love teaching! I have been interested in teaching since age 5, when I set up a small classroom in my parents' basement....and I have loved teaching everyday since!

I love teaching! I have been interested in teaching since age 5, when I set up a small classroom in my parents' basement. Since then, I have been privileged to teach in three states, at the University of Colorado, and also to maintain my own private teaching studio. Teaching is not something that I look at as a stop-gap job - teaching is my main focus. I enjoy sharing the gift of guitar and music with my students, helping to assist each and every student to a new "ah ha" moment with each lesson, while propelling each student to reach their ultimate goals.

Micheal is the most gifted music teacher that I’ve ever worked with.

Micheal helped me grow and gain confidence as a guitar player, songwriter, and singer.

If you want to get better at the guitar and all things music then I would highly recommend working with Micheal.

Michael has been a fantastic teacher--I've been working with him for almost three years and I've seen my skills improve measurably. His teaching skills are well above average, he's got a good home studio setup to make remote learning easier, and takes input from his students so they can better aim at their goals.

One of the best instructor I ever had. His skills are undisputed one of the best. He can teach you anything that you want and his knowledge in music is amazing. Worth every single dollar for the lesson.
