I have played the piano for over 20 years and believe it is the most versatile instrument there is. I love working with beginners and helping them feel comfortable maneuvering around the keys. Even if you eventually want to play another instrument, the piano translates incredibly well to all other instruments.

About Mike G.

Hi there!

I am an elementary music teacher by day looking to work with students in a one-on-one setting to help them reach their music/performing goals. I have also taught high school drum line for 5 years, in addition to beginning 5th grade band. I provide piano, drum, guitar, and ukulele lessons and have been playing for almost 20 years. I recently played acoustic guitar in a local bluegrass band (Groundspeed), as well as bass, percussion, guitar, and piano in my church's worship band. I studied Music Education at Elmhurst College, performed in Indiana University's Marching Band (3 years), and have traveled to Jamaica on a short-term teaching assignment. I also speak Spanish at a proficient level.
