Mike's a world class musician who sells high quality products and is an amazing teacher. He taught me what it really means to be a good musician. Also his CDs are always a joy to listen to.
He is a really nice guy. He does not step back on his expectations and he helped me learn so much with my instruments. My techniques and tone has drastically improved. Also he helped me gain better control of my instrument with editing reeds and different mouthpieces
Finding out how they learn is the first thing. Some student are ear or listening oriented and some are intellectual or looking at music oriented. Both are valid methods of learning but ultimately the student needs to master both if it is going to be more than a hobby.
50 years as a professional musician and private teacher and 5 years teaching at the university level.
