Mike's Guitar Studio
My children (ages 13 and 10) have been going to Mike’s Guitar Studio for guitar and piano lessons for the last three years. Their instructor teaches in a way that makes it fun to learn and keep them coming back for more. They started with no music background and now they can play, read sheet music and appreciate music a lot more than they did before. There is nothing better than listening to them argue over who practiced more between lessons.

My son has been taking lessons at Mike’s Guitar Studio for a little over two years now. His instructor is very knowledgeable, well-qualified, and patient. My son has made great progress, and has improved tremendously. He always looks forward to his weekly lessons because his instructor is fun and makes lessons interesting. I am glad that we were referred to Mike’s Guitar Studio.

I have been taking weekly, one hour lessons from Mike for several years now. I started my musical journey to learn guitar very late in life and it started with another instructor. I spent a year with the first instructor and was very frustrated with my lack of progress and his technique...I spent more time listening to him play than anything else.
Studying with Mike has advanced my ability to play significantly...I can say that I can 'play' which I never felt comfortable saying before. I'm 51 years of age and recently started a new business so my attention often gets diverted away from my guitar studies but Mike gently reels me back in when needed and gives me specific lessons and goals each week.
I would recommend Mike for any age student...I am living proof he can teach an old dog new tricks!

I am a guitar student of Michael. He is a very, very talented teacher who is patient and very understanding of the students needs. He plays and teaches a wide variety of different styles of music. Wonderful to deal with.

-I have Known my instructor for about five years. During that time he has been my guitar teacher. He has taken me from a novice classical guitar player to a player of greater technique and ability. He continues to inspire my playing with a combination of patience and skill. We have grown in our relationship over the years, and he is always willing to listen to my technical issues. He often is able to solve my problems with a precise and accurate "tip". His own playing is clearly at an exceptional level, and yet his modesty and humility always shine through. It has been a blessing for me to have had him as my teacher over the years. I hope this will continue in the future. I highly recommend Mike's Guitar Studio as your music school.

I have been taking lessons from Mike for over 6 years. Mike is without a doubt the best guitar teacher I have ever had. He has a plethora of knowledge, and is constantly improving my musical knowledge. Mike not only is a great teacher, but he is fun to be around, and I look forward to lessons each week. Mike recently helped me complete an album of 11 songs in his very own studio. He is very fun to work with and knows a lot about the whole recording process. Mike is a first rate teacher, and I would recommend anyone who is looking for a private teacher to go with Mike.

1/3/2012 Mike has been my son's percussion teacher for about a year now, he is patient and very knowledgeable, easy to work with and my son just loves going to class. Although my son also takes piano classes at Mike's school with one of Mike's other teachers, which he loves as well, Mike has filled in admirably when needed. I highly recommend this school!
1/11/2013 Mike has now become my son's piano teacher as well. He shows an amazing amount of patience and makes music classes fun. My son is now 8 and can play excerpts from Beethoven and Mozart. Thank you Mike!"
