Mike has been inspirational as a guitar teacher. He is patient, knowledgeable, and passionate about music. He’s also a brilliant musician in his own right.
Mike is an experienced and inspiring guitar teacher who is able to teach a wide range of genres and techniques at all levels. Highly recommend.
My colleague Mike is a highly motivated and organised individual who is an exemplary musician. He is a fantastic teacher who strives to go above and beyond to inspire and educate his pupils. I highly recommend Mike as a music teacher.
Mike is one of the UK’s foremost young guitarists. He is highly skilled as a musician and well respected by his peers and students.
I am a singer songwriter and have worked with Mike for many years- he is an integral part of my live show and we have toured extensively throughout the U.K. as well as recoded in the studio together, with the subsequent album gaining heavy international praise.
He is a patient and knowledgable teacher and I myself have been lucky to have lessons with him. He is my first recommendation for guitar students of any level.
