Mike has taught guitar at Canoga Music for 25 years.  Many of his former students have become professional musicians.

Mike studied jazz guitar at the University of Utah with Tonk Edwards (Sara Vaughan’s accompanist) and Steve Bethers (Donny & Marie, Vikki Carr).

Mike has played professionally for 30 years and has performed with jazz greats Bruce Fowler, Matt Catingub and Robbie Krieger (guitarist with The Doors).

Mike teaches his students how to read, improvise and play chords in the jazz rock and classical styles.  He is a very enthusiastic teacher, and his students can be heard making a “joyful noise” on any given day at Canoga Music.
