Performing Artist

I am based in Akron, Ohio and perform as a solo or duo act, with The Mike Lenz Band (3 piece electric blues), with Highway 61 (4 piece harmonica driven boogie blues), as a session musician and as a sideman with other fine NE Ohio acts. Need a guitarist or multi-instrumentalist? Please contact me below!


Private Music Lessons

I teach private lessons for fingerstyle or flatpicked guitar, harmonica, slide guitar, ukulele, voice, mandolin, banjo, bass, various folk instruments, improvisation, and music theory.

I've been teaching and playing professionally for over 30 years. My teaching method is tailored to the individual student to meet any musical goal. 

I specialize in acoustic and electric blues and roots music but play many styles including rock, jazz, bluegrass, folk, country, and classical. I teach online through Skype or other online services, at my home studio in Green OH, or will travel to your home. Lessons are $20 per half hour at my home, a little more if there's travel involved. Live interactive lessons through Skype, FaceTime, etc are $15 per 30 minutes.
