I've been teaching one-on-one lessons for about 25yrs, in Guitar, Bass, & Drums. Lessons are personalized & tailored to each student's needs & goals, in their own style of learning. No matter your age or ability, whether just for fun to learn a favorite song or something long term and serious, I do it all. I have a lot to share with you in all styles of music and playing. Together we can shave years off your learning curve. And if you'd like to know theory, and how to write and produce your own songs, we'll do that too! Let me know if you have any questions, and if you'd like to see references from former students! Hope to connect with you soon!
About Mike B.

I am a music teacher, song writer, book author, and a gigging & studio musician in Rock, Blues, Motown, Country, Metal, and Acoustic Duo bands. I've been performing since the age of 15, after getting bitten by the music bug at the ripe old age 8 yrs old. I've been playing music as my number one focus ever since. I always have felt as long as you love it, practice it, and pursue it you'll always achieve it! I have performed along side Billy Kreutzmann, drummer of the Grateful Dead band, while having the great pleasure of playing in front of Jerry Garcia! Education; I graduated from M.I.T. (Music Institute of Technology) in Hollywood California. Have studied under Gregg Bissonette, the drummer from The David Lee Roth Band, Spinal Tap, Electric Light Orchestra Band, now with the Ringo Starr all-star band. Teaching: I've been a professional music teacher always maintained a high level of weekly students over the last 25+ years, giving each their own personal tailored lessons specifically for them, in Guitar, Bass, & Drums! It started with the one-on-one lessons being at a music studio and students homes, and morphing over the years to include online with Skype and now Zoom. It gives me the ability to teach world wide now!

Mike has been a fabulous teacher for our son for the past 2 years! Mike allows Gabriel to try lots of new music while still teaching him the fundamentals of guitar. He has provided a safe and creative space for our son to musically grow in. We couldn't be happier with him as a teacher.

Mike is a patient, qualified guitar teacher for me. I am a beginner older adult. Mike is creating lessons that are in the style I want to learn. I am getting much more than just 30 or 60 minutes a week. He puts together lessons and songs of interest, that he emails to me between lessons. Very glad to have found Mike. I’ve tried a few online lesson services, but the weekly one on one with Mike has kept me more motivated and challenged. So for me, he is a much better fit.
