About Michael H.

Like many musicians, Michael began playing early in life and has been consumed by music ever since. In addition to the guitar, which he’s been playing for 30 years, Michael has also spent a considerable amount of time studying electric bass and drums. While studying music at the University of Maine, Michael developed an interest in composition and spent a great deal of time writing music and developing a personal compositional style. Following his time at the University of Maine, he studied audio production for music and film at the Audio Recording Technology Institute and interned with world-renowned mastering engineer Bob Katz. Michael currently works as a music educator and freelance audio engineer in CT and has been involved as a composer and performer for a number of commercial music projects. His musical expertise lies in rock, metal, folk, and electronic music. "My experience as a musician, songwriter, and audio engineer gives me a unique understanding of music and I am devoted to helping others find their musical voice."

Mike has been a great instructor! He's knowledgeable, caring and passionate about helping others learn. I'm a beginner to playing guitar and he has been so easy to work with, patient, and explains everything clearly. I always look forward to my lessons! Highly recommend!

Mike is a great guy and a natural teacher. He took the time to understand what my objective was and how I learn best, and has consistently been helpful and effective in directing my progress. He comes on-time, doesn't watch the clock once he's here, and has a smile on his face the whole time. Smart, respectful, articulate, warm and extremely capable. I may try to recruit him for my own business one day -- watch out TakeLessons!!
