I’ve played a string instrument since I was 9 years old, but specifically played cello from middle school to high school and then stopped. I recently decided to get back into it— I’m a junior in college now— and Michael helped make that transition easy. Michael is a great teacher with a genuine spirit. He has helped me work on a piece for an upcoming pageant and I feel as ready as ever! If you’re looking for an instructor who is understanding and genuine who can also help you improve on your technique/skill, then Michael is the instructor for you!
