About MICHAEL

Hi! My name is Michael and I am a teacher, performer, and composer active in the Baltimore, Annapolis, and D.C. areas.  I graduated from Towson University in 2015 with a Bachelor's Degree in Jazz/Commercial Performance. I have experience in teaching private lessons as well as directing groups in a rock band setting and I play lead guitar in various Pop and Rock bands all throughout the Northeast.

The primary focus in my teaching is to cater to each individual student's musical interests and learning abilities.  As a teacher, it is my responsibility to ensure that the student is excited to learn about music.  I achieve this by combining the fundamentals (Chords, Scales, ect) with music that the student already enjoys.  This ensures that the student is not missing out on the fundamentals while also sparking their excitement with their favorite music.  My ultimate goal in teaching is to guide students on their own musical journeys.

Feel free to contact me with any questions. I look foward to meeting and working with you!
