Michael B.

Brighton, MI

Acoustic or Electric. Steel string or nylon.

About Michael

I am a guitarist of over 20 years and have played an instrument since I was six years old. I went to college for jazz and classical guitar to expand upon my rock and blues influence. Having first taken piano lessons at six years old, I added tenor saxophone at 10, and guitar at 14. I have 20 years of playing live in a band or for theater work. I believe a musician can learn from all instruments and I try to not just teach guitar, but music.  *** Lesson Details *** I am disciplined but fun. Music shouldn't have to be a chore. It should be a chance to challenge yourself and see what you might be capable of with a little work. I use Berklee instructional books and the Guitar Grimoire as a foundation, but try to incorporate what each student listens to. After six months, a student ...

Adam is an excellent instructor. He kept my 9 year old granddaughter motivated from week to week. He made learning "fun" & designed his instruction around the kind of music she is interested in. He kept her challenged with things to practice from week to week. Adam is great with kids and I highly recommend him for anyone wanting to learn or expand their knowledge of guitar. Adam is not only talented, but very personable.

I really enjoyed having Adam as a Ukulele instructor! He was very friendly, professional and accommodating. He went out of his way to find songs for me to learn that were within my ability. I've never played a musical instrument before and he not only taught me the basics of how to play the ukulele, but some fundamental music principals. Adam even took the time to research how to help me fix my ukulele when the supplier I bought it from was no help. He is a very talented musician and is patient with beginners. I would highly recommend Adam if you are looking for a music instructor!

Ben is a wonderful teacher. Ben is patient while I learn new techniques. I learn new techniques every session which is important to me to keep on learning and keep on improving. Ben and I play together in review of what I have learned which is fun and it teaches me about music timing, rhythm and more. I have brought some songs to Ben and we review and play. I feel thus far I have made great strides as a guitarist and hope to make more.

John is really good at laying out the fundamentals, and elaborating enough to where even the newest of beginners will understand. He's not a grouchy instructor, so anything he feels you don't quite pick up on will be practice material. Quiet learning atmosphere which is really important. I'd suggest him to anyone looking to learn piano.
