This recital they performed a variety of music including; Elvis Presley, Nirvana, The Cars, Bon Jovi, The Beatles and some Blues!
“ I am living proof that it is never too late to learn how to play the guitar. Mike has patiently taught me how to play some of my favorite songs. I even learned a little music theory along the way.”
"Mike has been absolutely amazing with my daughter. He has not only been teaching her guitar, but he has helped her transition into bass as well. He has patience and also a deep understanding of music theory. But most importantly, he makes it fun for my daughter to play."
Over the years, Mike has made numerous chord charts for himself and his students. Below you can find the pdfs of some of those charts. Feel free to use them for your own personal musical growth. (Note: some are in different keys or have slight alterations)
