Morganik Music


I’ve been playing and teaching for 30 years plus.

i play acoustic guitar as well as electric guitar and several other instruments banjo,ukulele,mandolin,harmonica,in multiple styles ...slide guitar and fingerpicking as well.

i sing and play professionally all over the state although mostly now I try to stay local as much as possible.

i play solo gigs as well as with several different bands and am a full time musician.

i teach guitar and piano at Encino academy of music and arts as well as private lessons.

I’m listed on the networking site “linkedin” under Morgan Lewis private music instructor in Simi Valley and there are lots of testimonies from students and parents of students as to my teaching abilities and results.

every student is different and needs a special approach teaching wise in order to learn to play music and keep it fun and easy and that’s on of my specialties!

For me music is a spiritual experience.

i call it my church.

    I had a great first lesson! Morgan made me feel comfortable and he was very patient with me. Instead of it being a lesson it felt more like playing a game of copy cat. He makes it real easy to follow. I felt like I learned so much on just the first day. I look forward to learning more!

    Morgan is a very patient Guitar teacher. He approach to teaching is very relaxed and he got me playing songs and complicated chords in just a couple of lessons. He listens and adjusts his lesson to what a student needs. I wanted to jam lead guitar playing the Blues specifically, and Morgan got me on the fast track to an easy way to learn and memorize all the different keys and options for Blues scales. He has such patience with me and I have learnt so much with Morgan. After I have only been studying guitar for just a few months, Morgan has invited me to jam with him at venues that he plays at, and I am practicing for my big moment on stage when I play in front of an audience. Morgan is the MAN!

    Morgan teaches in a way that is personalized to the student and creates an atmosphere of success. He taps into the students strengths and uplifts any weaknesses. My best teacher after 4 tries!

    i wanted to share that experience because it was so profound and amazing.

    I’ve worked with students of all kinds from beginners to professionals and even students with different types of learning or physical challenges in order for me to give back what music has done for me and also to become a better teacher through experience.
