About Mike
 
I started playing at the tender age of twelve! That was some years ago! Since then I have played professionally all over the world playing live in both solo and band situations and as a session player with the likes of Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) Adrian Baker (Gidea Park) and Long John Bawldry. I am a published songwriter and started teaching about fifteen years ago. 

I teach all styles whether acoustic finger picking, struming, electric rhythm and lead guitar
 
My purpose built studio is fully equipped using online facilities and graphic displays as well as printed material, tablature, notation and my own unique chord and note identification system for children.
 
You will have fun learning chords, scales, lead licks, song composition, rhythm's and your favourite songs!

I strongly believe that the most effective method of teaching is to make the lessons interesting by concentrating on actual songs/tunes rather than pure exercise and theory and to this end the first introductory lesson is spent getting to know you, the student and your likes/dislikes in order that a lesson plan is developed based upon your preferences. Still not sure? please feel free to read the testimonials of some of my satisfied customers.
