Michael Woods is a full-time musician, composer, performer, and tutor. Michael believes that the education of the younger generations is the paramount responsibility of current working musicians, and aims to create a nurturing learning environment where musical comprehension and guitar-related studies can blossom. Michael co-founded his local Big Brother/Big Sister program in high school, where students that received private lessons volunteered to tutor students who were unable to take private lessons, ranging from grades K-12. This program ensured the health and longevity of his local area’s creative arts program by fostering a love and appreciation of musicianship and performance on a personal level. Michael is a life-long student of the guitar, and is experienced in many areas of the study, including composition, technique, arrangement, performance, and recording. He is able to read/write both sheet music and tablature, as well as jazz short-hand for accelerated learning and comprehension for the student’s benefit. Whether your child is a complete beginner or looking to accelerate their skills, Michael Woods will be able to take their playing to the next level.
