About this pro

Lessons are geared towards the students needs, ability and desire. I enjoy teaching entry-level students. It's a lot of fun interacting with their idea's and turning that into music. I have taught on and off for 45 years. I've played as a soloist at private events to different types of combos; rock, pop, jazz.

    Mitch was an excellent guitar teacher to my son. Michael was not interested in learning guitar the "normal" way, so Mitch was flexible and made lesson plans to fit his student. He made learning fun for him. Thanks MItch!

    Mitch was my first guitar teacher, and his knowledge, teaching and of course playing abilities are of high quality. When I was a teen, as my passion for the guitar grew, Mitch was always there to guide me and pass on skills, advice, creative knowledge and encouragement, all of which are the basis for my guitar playing and drive today. Without a doubt, you will get top quality knowledge of anything pertaining to blues, rock and jazz styles.
