I launched this local business to help current and aspiring musicians develop their craft and passion for music. Since that time, I have successfully taught hundreds of students, some of whom have gone on to become active professional musicians across the United States and abroad. My objective is to give all students the tools to understand and tap their creative potential.
This business requires me to be flexible and sensitive to students’ schedules and individual abilities. As owner, I perform bookkeeping, marketing /sales, customer service /relations and business development. I maintain a home-based, modern, 16-track digital and analog recording studio, and also provide music instruction at CVCC as an adjunct instructor.
What we offer is top-notch Guitar, Bass, and Drum lessons for the beginner and intermediate player.
Here are just some of the things you will learn:
I have over 30 years of experience in these areas among others. I can give you the tools that will help you take your creativeness and apply it to your playing in a very tangible way. I have taught hundred’s of students, some have gone on to become active professional musicians across the United States and abroad.
Mike has a well-rounded approach to guitar lessons. Most of this stems from his wide range of musical taste, and his eclectic style of playing. I've seen him teach a vast range of music from Country and Neo-Classical, all the way to Jazz and Prog-Rock. If you really want to "up your game" There is really only one person to see.

"I've been involved in music since I was a kid and Mike is one of the most talented musicians I've ever known. Music is like a second language to him, or even a first. What sets him apart is his passion for helping others grow in their musical abilities. As a teacher and a fellow band member, he has a knack for elevating the performance of others. He is able to excel in a range of styles, on a variety of instruments, and I've benefited greatly from our collaborations. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a trustworthy mentor to help them unlock their musical potential."
