I’ve been teaching violin, viola, guitar, bass and ukulele lessons for over a decade. These lessons range from one-on-one, small ensembles to 30 piece string ensembles. I have infinite respect for classical pedagogy, but I also love teaching jazz and folk music. The Corona virus has forced my teaching online through Zoom and Skype. However this does mean I have students in VIC, NSW and WA. If you’re interested in learning from me, please get in touch.
"I’ve been learning the ukulele with Michael for about 6 months, he is very encouraging and makes every lesson a positive, enjoyable experience, with a variety of activities to improve dexterity and musical skills. He always has something to challenge me as well as plenty of fun and laughs, I highly recommend him". - Madge.
I’ve run workshops in primary and high schools, festivals and music camps all over Australia and New Zealand. Topics covered include composition, folk music, jazz improvisation and harmony.
"Michael has an easygoing and engaging manner in his teaching, effectively passing on musical skills to our students but making it fun along the way!" - Lina Diaz.
