Starting something new or figuring out how to take it to the next level can be difficult to identify. I have been teaching since I was 16 to children in Elementary school, later in college I worked as a museum guide to educate people and help them make their own ideas of contemporary art, and lastly I became a tutor for Berklee College of Music, aiding students with software and hardware solutions. There is always a way to learn something and make it fun, otherwise, it won't stick as well! I am here to help you find that. Fun in learning!
I am a native English speaker, raised by an American mother, and attended a British High School. My English is as varied as it can get, which gives me large versatility with my speech. I received IGCSE and IB for Language and Literature in English. I have a degree in Music Production from Berklee College of Music.
¡Soy un parlante nativo! I lived in Mexico City for 18 years and was raised by a Mexican father. I have received IGCSE and IB certificates for Language and Literature in Spanish.
A little about me: I am a Mexican/American raised in Mexico City, Mexico, where I attended a British International School and later moved to the United States to pursue my musical dreams. From a young age, I was exposed to so much of the world, that it became my school. I find interest mostly in people and their experiences and it helps me understand everything around us. I'd love to get to know you, talk about our passions and curiosities. I will adjust my schedule so that we can work together!
Michael is fun and adaptable
Michael is a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to music production which is exactly what I was hoping for going into these lessons. He has an established and consistent process/lesson plan and is also happy to answer questions outside the topic or lesson for the day, which is very useful to me as a musician trying to learn a lot of different aspects of the industry. Very resourceful and friendly and kind. Very happy I was able to connect with him as a teacher.Amanda, 3 lessons with Michael

Knowledgeable, patient and structured.
Michael keeps me focused on building a foundation of skills and understanding. I want to do everything at once. He keeps me on track. I think it helps that he's used to working with kids. Highly recommend.Richard, 18 lessons with Michael
Patient and fun
Michael has a way with kids. Teaching piano to kids as is needs patience and doing that online is much tougher but Michael does that effortlessly. My 6 year old is engaged during her lessons and has fun, that makes a difference!Deepa, 17 lessons with Michael
He told me about modal interchange and other concepts. We discussed how to break down rough patches. He is a good listener and he restated back my comments to verify what my thoughts, goals and impressions were.Whitman, 5 lessons with Michael
