Student Testimonials


"Michael has the unique ability to empathize with my musical interests and background, finding creative ways to challenge me. He goes above and beyond as an instructor, and it's obvious that he genuinely wants me to succeed. It's the kind of reinforcement that has me excited about learning bass and ready to dive into the new material after each lesson. I always look forward to my lessons with Michael and I highly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn how to play." - Craig F.

"If I were writing a yelp review I would give Michael five stars. I definitely feel like I'm getting my money's worth and more. He has great knowledge of the bass and delivers it in a way that is comfortable and fun. The lessons are tailored to my interests and my level of playing. Bottom line I'm happy with how my playing is progressing and always enjoy going to my lesson." - Carol J.

His immense love and knowledge of music is astounding and he translates that into lessons that make me excited to learn more. He is very approachable, highly responsive and extremely flexible. I cannot recommend Michael enough to begin or continue your musical education!" - Ryan D.

He is reliable, kind, patient, consistent, and very experienced in combining theory with the creative application of music. Michael is a great guy." - Brian P.

or doing a musical theatre type show, his time feel and musical sensibilities are always spot-on and to top it off, Mike always brings a really positive attitude in all his dealings with people he works with and his students-take it from me, if you're an aspiring bass or guitar student, Michael is the real deal! - Tim M."
