Over 30 years experience! Private guitar instruction ONLINE USING ZOOM in your home

Methodology

I use music theory as a foundation for teaching all styles from Bach to Rock. My system really helps beginners learn more quickly. Over time you will learn to read music and improvise, create your own music! The most important thing is to have a lot of fun!

Background

Over 30 years experience teaching! After graduating college I studied with many music teachers. I specialize at teaching beginners the basics of music theory and mastering their instrument. I have helped many students go from beginner to having their own band.

Michael is great! My son studied under another traditional teacher and he learned piano pieces and forgot them months later. He didn't have much fun, just memorizing pieces.
Michael teaches a different way. He encourages imagination and allows students to choose songs/pieces that he likes as well as breaking down practice pieces, that end up being complete songs. He teaches music theory. My son looks forward to the lessons much more than the previous teacher.

Eventually, my son will also learn guitar from Michael. It's not taking chances if you start or change to Michael as a music teacher!

I've been taking adult beginner jazz piano lessons with Michael for 8 months. 2 of those have been entirely online via zoom. I like him, and think the time and money I've spent with Michael have been worthwhile.

Michael's approach is centered around building deep musical intuition. He provides a binder-full of curriculum, containing a mixture of reference, exercises, and songs.

In a typical hour-long lesson, Michael will introduce a new concept (a progression, a scale, a mode, a song, etc) with about 45 minutes of discussion or demonstration and about 15 minutes of guided practice. He works to incorporate things I'm interested in. For instance, he's accommodated specific songs I want to play.

For moving to online lessons, Michael has a pretty good camera and microphone setup so you can see what he's doing at the piano. It's not as good as in-person lessons, but it beats not having lessons at all!

I play piano to relax, be in a creative space, and to entertain. Since I’ve started lessons with Michael the music I’m making is much more interesting and fun to play. I am always challenged and encouraged to have fun.
