Michael maintains a private studio in Mernda, Victoria.
The classical guitar is such a tight knit community and each of my students become part of this internationally recognised family. As a professional performer myself and through my work with the MGF, I aim to set an example to my students about the amazing possibilities available through our instrument. I have studied under leading pedagogues, Tonie Field, Tim Kain and Dan McKay, and performed in countless masterclasses with visiting musicians including Johannes Moller, Ricardo Gallen and Nigel North. I pass this experience and knowledge to my students, with a great focus on rhythmic vitality as the core to musical expression. I also encourage my students to sing melodic lines and emulate this phrasing on the guitar.
As a classical guitar teacher in Melbourne, I present many opportunities throughout the year for my students to have masterclasses with visiting performers. Learning music is a lifelong and collaborative journey, there are many positive outcomes by having supplementary lessons from the world’s best players. Luckily in Melbourne, we are regularly visited by such musicians.
