Private Music Lessons

“Micah is the quintessential teacher: creative, knowledgable beyond his years, flexible, supportive, and above all- passionate. He took time to understand how I learn and personalizes my instruction in ways that benefit me most. If you are ready to take your playing to the next level, whatever that may be, I cannot recommend him enough.” Dr. Russel D. Putnam, MD

Guitar Lessons

Micah’s work as a guitar teacher ranges from beginner to advanced. Micah specializes in multiple techniques, helping the student identify their strength, playing style preference, and gaps, then creates a program based on the students needs and learning style to help them achieve their goal. All of Micah’s students take lessons in his professional studio Mister Studios, and eventually combine professional, high end production with lessons! He has found over the years this is a huge benefit to the students progression, enjoyment, and motivation. In our world of immediate gratification, Micah has found a way to support students by giving them goals and actual finished projects to share with both their family and their fans.

Advanced Lessons: Since Micah is an artist, and producer, many students eventually begin to have a need for a logo, basic website, and even look to book shows or play open mics. Micah helps every artist navigate the varying landscape of the arts and music business, giving them connections and direction every step of the way to creating a real brand and revenue.

“Micah is the perfect music teacher for me. He combines the knowledge, patience and innovative teaching techniques that are hard to find. I am learning and enjoying the entire process.”    -- Darren Drewitz, Co-Founder & Lead Strategist MindEcology Ma

“When our daughter first got excited to explore more about music, Micah’s encouragement, support, and instruction with guitar, voice, and songwriting planted some real seeds and helped her to realize and respect a talent she didn’t know she had.  As she got older and truly grasped her love for music and desire to do more with it in her life, Micah continued to inspire her to want to expand her skills and learn more about music theory, production and recording as well as new musical instruments like the piano and ukulele and to identify and develop the strengths in her vocals.  He is also covering social media marketing and some of the business side to music.  We are extremely grateful and in awe of the incredible depth of experiences in music Micah can offer his students.   He is a one stop shop for learning to develop every aspect of music! It’s been 4 years and each lesson sill teaches so many new things!  We are very pleased to see how much our daughter continues to love music and grow her broad range of skills tailored to her goals to not only be an artist but to understand and manage the business side of being a musician too.  We feel blessed to have Micah in our daughter’s life at this critical point on her musical journey!” Dawn Richardson
