I can offer lessons covering all areas, from music reading and theory to chord shapes and melodies. I'm keen to understand what you'd like to achieve from the lessons and work towards them and, above all, I want to make them enjoyable so that you are inspired to continue developing your skills between our lessons!
I have been playing guitar since a very young age, starting with classical guitar and progressing through the ABRSM musical grades before moving onto contemporary music and finger-style artists such as Andy McKee.
My teaching experience has been mostly casual, teaching friends at home and at university. However I have experience in teaching English to children and teaching entrepreneurship to adults which has allowed me to develop patience and strong lesson planning skills.
Music has been my passion outside of work and education since I started learning guitar at the age of 7. During my childhood I completed many of the ABRSM music grades, reaching Grade 8 Piano, Grade 6 Guitar and Grade 5 Music Theory as well as achieving an A* at Music GCSE. Since then I've picked up the bass guitar and reached a very high standard with this through performing in musical productions, my party band and my university's award-winning big band.
But what does all of this mean to you? It means that I've got a solid all-round musical knowledge spanning from theory and technique to improvisation and musical awareness when performing in a band. It also means that I will be teaching you what I love doing and I will endeavour to carry that enthusiasm into each and every lesson!
Mike is a fantastic music tutor. He is very organised, driven, motivated and professional. He wants to help any music learner achieve their very best. He is a very down-to-earth and amiable person, and is brilliant at passing on his love of music to others. I highly recommend lessons with Mike.
Mike gave me several lessons over summer, he is a very patient and knowledgeable teacher and I would recommend him to anyone.
Michael has a wide musical knowledge and is proficient in many genres and styles. He has lots of knowledge, patience and shows great attention to detail. Highly recommended.
