Personal Description:

I've had the good luck of playing alongside some great and very different musicians over the years, with the bands Built for Comfort, The Hustle, and Underground Ballroom; and now with Matt Black and Brian Costello in Kenny Wants Out. I've played in all kinds of settings in the UK, Europe and the USA and been fortunate enough to play with some great blues men and women: Fenton Robinson, Lazy Lester, Lefty Diz, Roscoe Gordon, Pete Allen, Big Moose Walker, Pete Special and Miss Cubie and The Hastings Street Blues Band down at Lee’s Unleaded in Chicago, South-side. Hopefully I've learned a few things and I can pass on the benefit of that experience to you.
Mike has a great voice and his guitar playing is wonderful” Blues in Britain

Take that guitar right between the eyes, mmm… there’s even a touch of Zoot Horn Rollo in there.

…Mike ’s guitar work shining like a guiding star throughout.

Tutoring Experience:

I've taught for twenty years in schools, colleges and university and been a chief examiner for AQA. I'm currently teaching guitar at a local secondary school and from home. My teaching has been described as 'Outstanding' on each of the three occasions I've been observed by OFSTED.

Tutoring Approach:

If you've just started guitar, or you've been playing for a while and just need to revive your enthusiasm with some new ideas, then you might want some lessons. We work from where you are and develop the ideas, skills and habits which will increase your confidence on the instrument and allow you develop your own style. I am not interested in exams or grades, but rather helping you help yourself to develop your musicality and guitar playing.
