Great instructor. Very patient and a lot of fun to learn from. He's very laid back and chill and he makes it a comfortable environment. Would highly reccomend.

I am a beginner and I reached out to Mikel to show me where to start in terms of chords and notes. He really broke it down for me and I'm learning extremely fast. He also makes the experience very enjoyable.
