From the the first lesson he questioned my goals and what I wanted to learn. I learned techniques from day one. I never learned pick and arm placement from any other teacher!!

Transforming Average Joes into Elite Pros


I'm Skeptical About Finding a Great guitar teacher vs. just "another" teacher; how are your results?

I know what you mean.  Most guitar teachers are either learning on the job or just aren’t knowledgeable enough to get their students the results they expect.  Don’t worry!  I have been teaching guitar lessons for 20 years and have a degree in Music Education from Elmhurst College.  I am an elite player with countless guitar lesson systems and methods that get you results. My students have gone on to have successful careers playing and teaching music. Would it help to mention that I’m actually a pretty fun person to be around?  Good.  I’m not “another” teacher in any regard.  You will get the results you want and I’ll open you up to worlds you might never have thought were possible in your playing, songwriting, recordings and show performances. 

“Since I am now trying to pursue teaching guitar, I consider Mike’s knowledge of the instrument in terms of teaching to be valuable and will utilize my past lessons, along with Mike’s guidance, to hopefully becoming a successful teacher myself.”

Can your guitar lessons really take me, an average joe, and transform me into an elite player?

YES, I transform Average Joes into Elite Pros with my Results Based System.  Let me prove it to you with a video from my former student, Daniel Farnsworth. Daniel started guitar lessons with me in seventh grade, continued throughout high school and while at Columbia College. WATCH THIS VIDEO! Daniel performed, wrote, recorded and video-edited all of this!! 

This is the solo off of the track "Heritage" by Mike's student, Daniel Farnsworth.

“I would say that the benefits of taking guitar lessons with Mike were that I had somebody to constantly motivate me from a level I wanted to be at. Someone who knew what I wanted to learn and had a teaching style that would help me along the way.”
Daniel Farnsworth

Why am I not seeing much improvement in my playing even though I’m practicing, getting help from friends and using YouTube videos to learn from?

“The benefits I have received by taking guitar lessons from Mike, have been numerous, and priceless! Within the 20+ years we have known each other, I have grown as a person and a player.”
Alison Meyers

Simply put, you need a true professional to teach you how to perform like a professional on a regular basis to see results. Having a coach there to make sure you’re playing correctly, fixing your issues and learning songs relevant to your goals is irreplaceable.  Do Olympic athletes learn from friends and YouTube videos and then go on to win the gold?  No, they get trained by the best and use every day to transform into the best they can be and win. So lets win together and I’ll put you on a path to having fun while gaining impressive results on guitar .
