About Michael

I am an active musician, composer and teacher who resides near Washington, D.C. I have performed as a soloist and with various musical ensembles throughout the United States, Europe, Japan, North Africa, South America, and the Middle East. I have also been featured on various radio and t.v. programs around the world. I have performed for many luminaries and dignitaries including former President Bill Clinton, former Vice President Al Gore, United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan, former Joint Chief of Staff and former Secretary of State Colin Powell, Mexican president Vicente Fox, Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Senator John Kerry (D-MA), Teresa Heinz, Henry Kissinger and former Senator Bob Dole (R-KS), as well as various members of royalty throughout the Middle East.

My first recorded solo effort features original compositions for guitar and solo piano, blending a soothing mix of Spanish, Latin and adult contemporary instrumental styles.

I enjoy teaching several styles of guitar-rock, pop, classical, Latin, jazz, rumba-flamenco, folk, country, etc. I am also a professional musician & I perform locally, nationally & internationally.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Guitar

I am an active musician, composer and teacher who resides near Washington, D.C. I have performed as a soloist and with various musical ensembles throughout the United States, Europe, Japan, North Africa, South America, and the Middle East.
I teach various styles of guitar music including rock, pop, jazz, classical, Latin & rumba-flamenco. Given the fact that my musical palette is so diverse I encourage my students to learn more than just one style of guitar playing. I stress the importance of sight reading via different method books (Hal Leonard, Aaron Shearer, Frederick Noad, etc.) as well as the art of improvisation & playing by ear.
I am the former vice president of the Washington Guitar Society & I was instrumental in helping form the Marlow Guitar Series which brings guitarists from around the globe to showcase their talents.
