Adult Guitar Lessons

“I have been having lessons with Michael for a few months, having had lessons all throughout high school and dropped it completely afterwards for 10 years. My technical skills were rusty, and theory was worse for wear, but after only a short time with Michael I’m already at a far higher level than I was before. He corrected poor habits of mine, had well constructed routines for making practice more efficient and has a fantastic way of explaining musical and guitar theory. Very passionate, talented and all around great guy, how can I possibly not give him five stars? If you’re after lessons, check out his page; you most definitely won’t regret it
