Travel the world through music from the comfort of any seat in your home. I have been doing this for the past twelve years with my guitar. I have been through the rivers and amazons of Brazil, getting to know their rhythms that influenced the catchy Bossa Nova; I have walked the muck and mud of Southern USA, playing the Blues and training my fingerstyle technique to imitate that of my idols, and I have cleaned through the distorted grit of Rock around the world to find my own voice. These are only a few places I have travelled. After my education in Guitar, Production, and Songwriting at Berklee College of Music, I can help you cater to the lesson plan you need to take your skills to the next level, the next venue, and the pieces inside of you waiting to be manifested into notes. When do we start?

Michael is a careful, patient and fun teacher. He took time to make sure I was learning and applying my new guitar skills. He would not move beyond until I got it. I highly recommend Michael for beginners and intermediate guitar players.
Sarah
Michael is always enthusiastic and excited to work with my daughter on her guitar skills. He makes afternoon activities something my daughter thoroughly looks forward to. Michael is passionate about music and it is contagious to all his students! Ask Michael to teach you or your kids!!!
Gabby
My two boys were shy and inexperienced guitar wanna-be players. Michael opened up his home and his heart and slowly but surely built confidence within them. He has the patience and kindness that were necessary for my boys. However, he knew when and how to push them to become better and more confident with each class. His methods were unique and effective. They looked forward to Wednesday afternoons with Michael. Although we have moved away, my children speak highly of the kind and experienced player that Michael was with them when they needed it most. I recommend Michael!

I'm a full time touring musician, I studied music in school for 8 years, but I can honestly say I've learned more about music through my years as a touring musician. I find great joy in sharing all the things I've learned over the years.

I like getting to know my students; their expectations and goals as an aspiring drummer, and I build my curriculum around their needs.

In my lessons you can expect to learn, and have fun!

Rhonda
James is a reliable instructor. He always meets at the scheduled time, and instructs with patience and persistence. Our son has been a student for 8 or 9 years now, and likes Jame's style of teaching. Our son has learned many techniques for playing drums, starting with simple beats. James is well liked and respected. For 11 years James instructed our oldest son on the drums. When the boys started showing an interest in piano, we bought a keyboard for them, and James started teaching them the basics of piano.
Currently James instructs our youngest son on drums and keyboards - rotating each week.
When our son wants to go over something he's been learning at school in his Advanced Keyboarding class, James has been a great help in this area!
Heather
My son has been taking drum lessons from James for a few years now and has grown so much in his love of music and his ability to play. He looks forward to his lesson every week. We are grateful to James for cultivating his passion.

I have taken several upper division classes in theory and feel confident in teaching beginner, intermediate, and many advanced topics.
I love theory and I have received all high marks in all of my college theory classes. I teach the topic until you feel comfortable to execute the homework by yourself.

Kierra K.
Really informative and dedicated to teaching you the right and proper techniques
Ethan
No one is more organized than Rebekah. We loved her as our children's face-to-face instructor, and were worried that switching to online lessons would prove hectic and confusing for our children, but not so with Rebekah. Moreover, she combines flexibility with rigorous standards in a way we didn't think possible. She is an ideal teacher.
Andrew L.
She is unable to fully explain musical concepts. She plays to demonstrate these concepts very seldom. This lesson was the best so far, since she allowed me to play what I wanted to work on, but she seems to lack the ear to quickly understand each part. Her advice is limited in scope and usually vague.
