My lessons are designed to get my students playing songs and building technique as soon as possible. Because, that’s fun!
I’ve been playing professionally for over 35 years and teaching for over 25 years. I’ve been fortunate to play in several high-profile signed bands (Over the Rhine, Monk and Pay the Girl) and toured all over the world and played on lots of recordings. Fun!
As a teacher, I’ve founds many ways to explain and share this wonderful world of music; because not everyone learns the same way.

About Mike G.

I studied Jazz Bass/Studio at the Conservatory College of Music at the University of Cincinnati. I’ve been playing professionally for over 35 years. In that time, I’ve played with several high-profile signed bands (Over the Rhine, Monk and Pay The Girl). I’ve toured all over the US and Europe.
This experience has giving me a great insight with regards to what it takes to be a professional musician. I’ve helped students get in to many Music Universities around the country.
I’m all about sharing my love of music to beginners as well. I’ve learned how to communicate ideas in many ways through my experience as a teacher. It’s tough to get that from a book!
I provide my students with a path to learning that will save you time and get great results!

Mike is an amazing guitar teacher. We started out having face to face lessons but then Covid-19 made that impossible. We started online lessons and the way Mike teaches online is the same way he does face to face. My son has learned so much and is playing better every day. Mike is vigilant when teaching and is able to show and correct hand movement, eye movement and posture when playing the guitar. I highly recommend Mike Georgin for online guitar lessons for anyone who is wanting to learn the guitar!

Mike has been the perfect teacher for my 11 year old daughter as she is learning to play bass! He has concentrated on proper technique, reading music, hearing the music, and nuances of what to expect when she gets a “gig” one of these days. He does an excellent job of building on basics and sprinkling in the fun songs so she can also play along with a couple songs she hears on the radio to keep her inspired to learn. I have been amazed with Mike’s ability to relate to someone brand new to the instrument while it is obvious that he, himself, has a very in-depth formally trained skillset himself and knowledge base. I would highly recommend Mike to both new and advanced players alike, for this very reason!

Mike Georgin is an outstanding instructor. He truly has a gift for teaching. I never stopped being amazed at the depth of his knowledge and professional musical capabilities. His music education plus years of on-stage and recording experience come together in each and every lesson. Mike is very patient, understanding, and works to be sure the lesson concepts are mastered without any pressure. If you just want to play some bass, Mike's your guy! If you want to play bass and learn music theory, Mike's your guy! Mike has the knowledge and experience to go as deep as you, the student, wish to go. I promise you will not regret having Mike as your instructor! He is awesome!

Mike has spent years playing and honing his skills in nearly every genre and spectrum of music, and the experience definitely shows in his lessons. Mike worked with me to develop a lesson plan that was both achievable and interesting. Finally his honesty encouraged me to focus on areas I needed to focus on. If you’re looking to begin learning, hone your skills in a certain style, or just looking for some polish I highly recommend Mike.
