About Michael


Bio

After High School I knew I was behind on my education. I forced myself to take 17 units then 18 and finally 19 every semester while working at Skyline Colleges financial aid department. The struggle was real but in the end I learned so much and really proved to myself that anything is possible. With almost all A's and B's except a single C in chemistry, I had finished five AA's after three years and 105 units.

For 12 years now I have been learning and playing music on multiple instruments:...

After High School I knew I was behind on my education. I forced myself to take 17 units then 18 and finally 19 every semester while working at Skyline Colleges financial aid department. The struggle was real but in the end I learned so much and really proved to myself that anything is possible. With almost all A's and B's except a single C in chemistry, I had finished five AA's after three years and 105 units.

For 12 years now I have been learning and playing music on multiple instruments: Guitar, Bass, Drums, and piano/keyboard. I have tried other instruments but these are my primary musical devices of choice. I had learned music fundamentals, two semesters worth of theory, MIDI software, and many other music essentials. I was most proud of of the Urban Music Ensemble course at Skyline that myself and six others dedicated ourselves to even when our teacher missed over 60% of the classes. We had united and under my leadership I had taken it to the dean in order to get a new instructor to keep us together. With my leadership mentality and love for music I believe I can not only teach you so much, but I can also make music fun! All genres of music, even country and noise.

I have the equipment to teach you how to learn these instruments the fun way and to make you a virtuoso on not only your music but your overall education. Remember that I am well rounded with my education and can fulfill my task as a tutor in order to help you become a responsible and respectful citizen.

General Music

After playing music for 12 years I have learned all of the Basic Major and Minor chords A-G. With this knowledge I synchornize by ear the chords and notes to higher Octaves to play the same chord in a higher pitch. I would need to look into my augmented and 7th chords but after less than a day I would be able to instantly tutor a student. In fact I could even look it up in less than 6 seconds using the technology at hand. I believe cover songs are the best way to learn how to play instruments even if the song may be difficult. If the individual is not having fun/entertained then it is more difficult to get them engaged and willing to learn. I have the charismatic and entertaining character when I teach music. I also have the equipment capable of recording and editing the sounds/music to share it and provide students with their own final products.
