He’s a fantastic teacher! my mind is still trying to process a mere hour of his knowledge’ – Matt (UK)

Mike is not just a world class performer, he is a fantastic and engaging teacher. That’s why I booked him to teach alongside Guthrie Govan at my festival – Rob ‘Chappers’ Chapman (UK)

‘You’re a really good teacher thanks, you’ve made the most challenging aspects of my technique seem so easy to overcome, and i’m well on my way to getting out of this rut!’Daniel (US)

For many years, Mike has been teaching over Skype. If you are interested in learning his music, guitar techniques or anything else you can think of, please email him directly using the contact form below. He will then email you back personally with information on how to proceed, along with fee and scheduling.

Mike teaches during 1 day most fortnights. Even whilst on the road (Laptop!) Slots are strictly first come first serve. At present, Mike has taught over 70 different students online over every continent (except the one with all the ice) with the vast majority opting for regular sessions every two or 3 weeks. No signup necessary, if you just want 1 session that’s totally fine!
