Information About Michael - Colne teacher - (1 review)
This is how 4 referees rated Michael:
I have played guitar and mandolin all my life, and still play regularly at folk clubs and at a range of functions. I'm a very approachable person and enjoy meeting people (of all ages). I specialise in traditional folk (English and Irish) on the mandolin, and Blues on the guitar, but I can also play other popular styles.
Professionally, I taught English for over 30 years. My music teaching has been informal, rather than for qualifications. I've taught children, teenagers, and plenty of adults too.
There are many ways of learning to play a musical instrument, and I try to tune in to a student's preferred approach - whilst also trying to introduce them to other approaches, if it seems appropriate. Personally I like to teach music theory alongside the practice, covering keys, scales, sheet music and so on: though I think it's also important to learn to play an actual tune at a early stage of learning. I can be very flexible in my approach. What's important is that you enjoy it, and make some progress.
