Guitarist, Composer, Producer, Luthier, Instructor, Engineer, Hopeless Gearaholic and Lion Tamer
Ted M. and his band released two albums in the early eighties to high critical acclaim and never looked back, launching a career that spans 30 years and encompasses the epitome of composition, production, performance, and now education, sales and luthiery skills.
Ted M. is a master technician and a compassionate guitar teacher who still performs live.
Ted M. is a dynamic personality and is, admittedly, a hopeless gearaholic who enjoys building, repairing and designing stage rigs for some of the best guitarists in the business.

*** Lesson Details ***
"My lessons incorporate not just the basic fundamentals of the instrument, but an insight and comprehensive journey into the art of making music and the business of ensemble production. This is augmented by time spent in the studio with students, recording their progress, giving them benchmarks and something to show for their efforts."
*** Studio Equipment ***
Dedicated music room: seating for parents, music stands, recording gear, spare amps.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my guitar and books and expect them to provide the same.
*** Specialties ***
I tailor each set of lessons with the personality and talent level of each individual student.
