Excellent! Michael started giving our son guitar lessons 1 Month ago, we are very happy and will continue with Michael. I would very much recommend him as a teacher as he is very patient, very friendly and very caring for his student.

Michael 's response

My first lesson teaching Patrick went very well. He has some knowledge of chords and tablature. We discussed just teaching him songs in the genre Patrick likes. I look forward to teaching Patrick more at the next lesson.

Hi All,
I played music with Michael for about 5 years. We participated in many functions and festivals. Back then Michael played bass guitar. He was an easy going understanding person to get along with and demonstrated fantastic playing and teaching skills.
I highly recommend his services as a teacher as he has the qualities and patience that is sought after.

He is passionate in anything he does and is a kind person, the type you want as a teacher.

Bruce

Michael is a very passionate musician and songwriter whom I have played guitar with and his knowledge is exceptional.
His patience and passion are an asset to anyone wishing to learn guitar and well worth the time and investment.

Interview with Michael

QUESTION 01 | 05
When did your passion for teaching music begin?
Michael — It originally began, a few years after high school. I was a 20 year old in a band of 15 year olds. I was sort of like their mentor back then. Showing them my experience of being in other bands and as a musician. Then I left the band when I was 29. My actual teaching of guitar began as a hobbie when I was 35, briefly and then it really got going when I turned 40. I really liked and still do like the reward of seeing and hearing the student play their favourite songs in their entirety.
QUESTION 02 | 05
In your opinion, what does it take to be a successful Guitarist?
Michael — Firstly you have to have a passion for music. Be dedicated to practising every day. Listen and learn from everyone you work with in music circles. Be open to constructive criticism and feedback. Be a good human, be humble and kind. Accept that like anything in life, music and learning guitar is a journey, not a destination.
QUESTION 03 | 05
It’s 2 am in your local bar; which famous musician would you most like to have a conversation with?
Michael — George Strait- The King of American Country music.
QUESTION 04 | 05
What is your most inspiring experience as a musician?
Michael — Playing an open jam at my 40th birthday party. Where we played and entertained family and friends for over 5 hours.
QUESTION 05 | 05
If you had to choose a piece of music or album to be forever played on loop, what would it be?
Michael — Album: No Fences by Garth Brooks
