Mike's goals for lessons have always been about the student learning how to play and understand the guitar, and to empower the student to express themselves through their instrument.
"I have taught private guitar lessons for over 17 years. My experience has shown that a large number of students were taught how to play songs, but never taught how to play the instrument. My goal is to teach you what you need to know to become successful on the guitar and discover your own playing."
