About this pro

I focus on fun! I love teaching the music you want to learn and having a good time doing it. I will keep you motivated to reach your guitar playing goals by making sure you're enjoying what you're doing.

I enjoy getting to know my students and watching them grow in music. I've seen a few students reach professional playing level and many over the years have expressed their appreciation for continuing to keep playing after lessons end!

    Michael has a tremendous wealth of knowledge and is able to communicate and share that with his students. His easy going and positive attitude gave me confidence and made my lessons fun and productive. Thank you Michael!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I will initially ask what musical interests and goals they might have. Then I'll assess where the student is at in the musical development to best plan a strategy to improve their playing.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been playing since I was eight. Since my teen years I have played in bands, duos, and various ensembles. I earned a BFA- guitar performance in American Fingerstyle Guitar from UW-Milwaukee and the Wisconsin Conservatory of music. I am also a singer and have made my living from performance and teaching over the last two plus decades. All together, forty plus years in music.
