Teaching since:
February 1998

I teach fun and easy lessons that allow you to explore the guitar at your own pace. I tailor lessons around the student's musical interest. I'll have you playing your favorite songs in a matter of weeks.

I taught at my last music academy for 9 years. I am currently teaching at Sam Ash Music in Castleton, IN. I've been playing guitar since 1980 and I've taught hundreds of students thousands of songs since 1998. I have taught country, pop, and rock from the 50s to today. I have taught Elvis, The Beatles, Guns and Roses, Nirvana, Metallica and Avenged Seven Fold not to mention hundreds more.

Mike is very patient with my 9 year who has no experience and this is what I was looking for in an instructor.

Mike is a wonderfully talented guitar player. He will teach you what you want to learn, picking, or chords, if your mostly wanting to sing while playing! Great guy! Thanks Mike

Great teacher. I am an intermediate player on my way to advanced. Would strongly recommend for anyone wanting to learn guitar at any level. Teaches things in easy to follow way and adjusts content in a manner suitable for your level.

Mike gave my son lessons and taught him how to learn to play a song by listening to each section at a time. He taught some of the guys in my band how to play together in a group while being our lead guitarist. He's great if you just would like a practice buddy, that can also show you how to play better! He can give lessons to beginners all the way up to professional level. He is a lot of fun to work with too!
