about
Mik

I’ve been a working musician for many years now, and I’ve been playing the guitar and drums for over 30 years. I currently play guitar in three bands: Boy Del Mundo, an indie rock band; reggae band Zamaica; and Tripitaka, an eight piece funk and soul band. I started teaching 5 years ago and I am a full member of the Registry of Guitar Tutors (RGT).

I teach guitar in my custom studio, and guitar and drums at several primary and high schools in the Preston area. I spent 3 years teaching at Music Discoverers Music School in Preston, before moving in to my own studio. I teach all ages from 4 to adult, at any level of ability, from beginners upwards, and I also have experience teaching SEN kids. I am fully cleared and certified with the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB) check, and I have full public liability insurance.

My musical influences are wide-reaching and I take inspiration for my lessons from many different styles and genres and my own experience performing and playing guitar and drums. I have recently started studying jazz guitar to help broaden my knowledge and guitar skills.

To book or enquire about lesson availability and prices, please contact me and I'll be happy to help.

LESSONS


Lessons are based on what you want to learn, at a pace that’s right for you. Together we’ll combine your musical taste with learning techniques and theory.

All my lessons are tailored to the individual needs of my students, and I strive to make each lesson as fun and as entertaining as possible in a friendly and relaxed environment. Encouraging my students to enjoy learning and playing a musical instrument for pleasure is my main goal.

Private Tuition

I hold one-on-one private tuition in lessons from 15 minutes upwards, depending on experience and age (I find my younger students benefit from shorter lesson times).

In-School

I can teach individual lessons or groups, from year 1 upwards and I will be happy to chat through the individual requirements of your school and tailor lessons to suit.

Location

I am based in Preston, Lancashire and hold classes in my home studio in Fulwood, and in schools. Daytime and evening classes are available.

Music Exams

If you’d like to test your skills further, I also provide tuition for Rock School graded exams amongst others. More information is available on request.
