I first started working with Mike 3 years ago when I was 12, knowing nothing about the guitar, and now I'm writing my own songs and learning other people's too! Mike is a superb teacher and a real down to Earth person! His knowledge and experience is incredible, he can listen to a song and pick out chords and notes, and he makes learning new things fun and easy to understand. When you take lessons with Mike you can play whatever style guitar you like, and he'll help you with whatever you ask for, whether it be music theory or just learning that song that's stuck in your head. I am extremely impressed with Mike's lessons and his excellent work ethic. Mike is an awesome guy who is fun, responsible, on time, trustworthy, reliable, and an epic guitarist who has recorded his own songs that are magnificent! So if you're thinking about taking lessons Mike is the way to go!
