Introduction: Versatile and experienced teacher - all levels, all types of music. (ONLY ONLINE) I love performing and I love sharing my experience and love of music with others. I have been teaching guitar for more than eight years - from beginners picking up the instrument for the first time to students with several years of playing under their belt. I graduated Berklee College of Music in Contemporary Writing and Production and during College, as well as in my High School years, and after University, I have been teaching. I teach individuals online and in person as well as teaching groups. My experience includes teaching at a High School level (which I am doing currently) as well as at Rock Camps. As well as acoustic and electric guitar, I also teach bass and production. I was an All State Jazz guitarist two years in a row . I have worked with up and coming performers and singer songwriters as well as playing back-up with artists, including a couple of stints on CBS and NBC television. I have been part of the orchestra in theatres as well as asked to play with the United States Marine Band. Lessons will be tailored to your interests and needs and we will develop a curriculum that is constantly evolving as you hone your skills to become a well rounded guitar player. So whether it is Progressive Metal, Rock, jazz or popular songs, I can help you attain that level. Let's Get Started! * I offer a 15 minute free assessment lesson and we can take it from there.

My son is home schooled and has wanted to learn guitar for a while. We found Michael via Thumbtack and signed up. They do video lessons once a week and Michael is spot on. He sends all of the work my son needs to practice and what he needs to know for the next lesson. Michael is clear, concise, and very easy for my son to work with. He has learned so much and we WILL be continuing for a lot more lessons.

A few months ago I felt stagnant when it comes to the guitar. I didn't know where to go from there at the time. Until now, I've been self-taught using online resources. I've tried several guitar teachers to see if they can help me, but they never gave me what I was looking for. Michael has. Not only is he very knowledgeable and skilled when in comes to playing the guitar, he is patient, able to explain harder concepts regarding music theory, song writing, and how they tie together. If you are looking for someone to push you to be the best guitar player you can be, I highly recommend Michael.

Great lesson. Learned so much in such a short period of time and he’s very patient. Michael definitely made guitar a lot less intimidating.
