Topics that are covered in lessons include: -Technical Exercises -Reading Techniques -Theory -Scale Studies -Introduction into various musical styles (Classical, Jazz, Popular, ect.) -Assistance with working on ensemble music (school or community ensemble) Currently, all lessons are conducted either in-person or online through the use of the Zoom app, which can be used on a computer, tablet, or smartphone. All students are required to have the following items for music lessons: -Instrument (in working order) -Reeds (except flute) and other necessary accessories -A device to connect to Zoom and a good internet connection (ONLINE LESSONS) -Music Book/ Sheet Music (a recommendation will be made if the student does not have) -Metronome (to keep tempo while playing at home) In-person lessons are currently available on Mondays-Thursdays and Saturdays at: Music Village 2971 Union Ave San Jose, CA 95124 I look forward to helping all students achieve their musical goals!

I have been working with Mike for 5 years now, and I have never been disappointed with the quality of his work. He is incredibly attentive and he truly strives to accomplish what is best for his students. He knows the ins and outs of his instruments, and he is very encouraging and patient. Mike has been able to help me progress not only as a saxophone player, but in general as a musician. Having someone who is as passionate about music and teaching as Mike is help me out has been such a blessing over the past 5 years. He helped me with college auditions, and I would not have gotten into music school without him. I would absolutely recommend Mike, as he is an incredible teacher as well as an incredible person.
