About Michelle W.

I was in High School When I bought my first guitar and developed a passion for music. For me music opened the door to a new lifestyle and ultimately led me to begin teaching and sharing music with others. I have taught a variety of ages, ranging from children 4yrs up to adults.
For beginner guitarists, I believe there can be just as much joy and fun as there can be practice. I strive to make everything simple while important skills are learned. I am a patient and committed teacher who can show you these skills that will help to make you a well-rounded musician.

***Lesson Details***
Each lesson will consist of a unique and personalized curriculum to fit the student’s needs. This will be done at a pace that allows for confidence to be built and a complete understanding of the material. Each student is taught the basic skills of guitar so that they can become an independent and self-sufficient musician with a strong fundamental foundation. Crucial skills such as reading music, scales, various chords, and more will be taught in each lesson. Each lesson will be just as enjoyable as it is informative. Each Student brings their own list of songs or pieces that he/she enjoys to learn to play on the guitar. Overtime, all the skills learned will allow students to play with confidence!

***Lesson Duration***
Lessons are available in 30, 40, & 60 min durations. Below are the recommended times based on age that I find most beneficial to most students. These will help you achieve the most out of each lesson while keeping things fun & simple!

kids under 11- 30min
12-17 - 40min
Adults- 40min or 60min

***Studio Equipment***
Students will be provided all handouts and paper material. Books, guitars, and amps are available to use during each lesson. Guitars available for purchase as well. Over time it is recommended that you work on acquiring your own equipment as well.

Michelle is Patient, takes her time to explain in details. Especially for someone who is a visual learner like me who is also a beginner. And she is affordable too. Will recommend to every person who wants to learn.

Just completed my first 5 lessons with Michelle and booked another 5. Such a lovely lady and an excellent teacher. I’m a 70 year old beginner and consider myself lucky to have found her.
No hesitation in recommending her .

I had no prior experience really with any type of musical instrument, but with Michelle I've been having noticeable progress every week. Every lesson introduces something new but it's never too much or overwhelming, so I'm always excited to learn more. Thanks!

Michelle is here to teach me what I need to learn and not just what I want to learn like to learn. Some teachers just want to make a quick buck and show me a song without basics...it slowed me down even more. So I am very happy to have chosen a female and a knowledgeable one with lots of patience.

My 8 year old is a beginner, and Michelle is his first instructor. She has taught him lots of fundamentals in a few short weeks and shares resources that he can use at home in between weekly lessons. I would recommend Michelle to others.

Michelle is awesome. She so patient and calm and was able adjust to the different styles of learning and levels between our two daughters. She was also very encouraging as she engaged them in the lessons. My daughters have learned a lot in the short time they were taking lessons and are confident enough to share their knowledge with other beginners.

My 8 year old son has been taking lessons with Michelle for 6 months now and it's the BEST money I have ever spent on him! She is patient, kind and very helpful! I thought that an hour might be pusing it but for him the time flies! So thankful to have such a positive person in my kids life. Thank you!

She did a stand up job! I am a mid 30s beginner and she was very informative and answered all of my questions. Taught me easier was to play different chords and had me playing the first part of a song within a few days. Would recommend for any beginner.

Very patient, All of a sudden my grandson decided he didn't want to learn guitar, he is six, didn't want to go to the class. However, Michelle's patience got him interested and I was very pleased with her ability to teach someone so young.

I found Michelle for my 7 year old son who wanted to learn to play the guitar. Michelle is very patient with him and he loves going to see her. I highly recommend her as a teacher for a person just learning to play or someone who is just trying to sharpen their skills. She is awesome!!

Michelle is very patient especially for a late learner of guitar like me. She's very knowledgeable about her craft. Able to explain things that I'm not familiar with. My understanding of tabs, chords and basic musical notes open up and widens because of her instruction and guidance. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to learn to play guitar.

The thing I love about Michelle is that she is super patient. It helped me feel at ease when learning this new instrument. I always looked forward to her lessons because she taught me her lesson and then she showed me how to play a song of my choice. She was very helpful and great and answering all my questions. I highly recommend her!!

What a great teacher :-)

I'm 49 years old and decided to learn to play the guitar last month. Found Michele and as a teacher she has surpassed all my expectations. She's patient beyond belief. She works at your pace but pushes you to excel. But most importantly she makes your lessons fun. If you're looking for a great teacher, I highly recommend Michele ;-)
