I’m a self taught guitarist whose been playing almost 15 years. I wanted to get past some plateaus in my playing and learn theory and Mike has been great for it. Mike has a relaxed vibe and takes a real interest in seeing you progress. He mixes in his teaching with great insights and tips in how to apply it to your playing. His lessons are flexible and focused around where you want to go with your playing.He also goes beyond and tries to link you in with other people to play music with or venues/gigs that could be a good fit. If you are looking to start playing or feel a bit stuck in your playing, Mike is a great teacher and definitely worth checking out.read more

I wish I had come here sooner. I've been teaching myself to play the guitar for the last 12 months using the Internet with not much success. Mike provides structured lessons and sets expectations with time frames as to when you can start playing songs or doing improvisation etc. He's very patient and explains things well. He is also able to mix up the class if things get tough to keep the lessons enjoyable. I'm really loving my guitar lessons.read more

Mike is an extremely talented musician. I'm very happy with my guitar lessons and the progress I'm making. Mike is able to mix up the class to include supplementary material and incorporate other aspects of music to give the bigger picture such as singing and other musical instruments. If you want to master music and become a really good guitarist at the same time then I recommend you give Mike a try.read more

Mike has been teaching my 12 year old daughter the guitar for the last 6 months. She's been making great progress. His teaching style is very encouraging, structured and he is able to introduce alternative things when he can see she is struggling. He keeps her motivation high by teaching her things she wants to learn. I recommend Mike for anyone with children wanting to learn Guitar.read more

Mike has been teaching my two young children guitar and piano twice a week for the last year. He is very patient and encouraging. He creates an environment for learning. If you have children wanting to learn guitar and piano or either then I recommend you bring them to Mikeread more

We can also focus on Australian Music Examination Board Exams, musical theatre, singing etc. if that’s a particular interest.
As we progress, you will learn more notes, theory, styles, rhythms, improvisation and songs and will learn how to vary the sounds on the guitar including percussive techniques which most other teachers can’t teach.
