Who Said You Have To Wait Years To Sound Great?
Mike Baelde has been playing guitar since the age of 9. He received his degree in music performance from the Berklee Music College and won the Fred Sherratt Award distinguishing him as a top Canadian scholar. He has been the lead 1-on-1 instructor for the Vancouver Guitar School, which is now Campfire Guitar Star since 2012. Mike tours extensively in Canada, and has a worldwide following of students.
Here's what Mike's got to say on the subject of teaching and learning guitar:
"My philosophy on music and teaching is simple. The better you get, the more rewarding music becomes. A good teacher will simple guide a student to that point where they want to play and practice, by using a process that keeps the student having fun and engaged throughout.
There is no greater joy for me than when I see my students accomplishing their musical goals, so I've made it my main focus to help people succeed on the guitar. There is something here for everyone. No matter what your level, it is my guarantee that you will emerge a better guitarist after completing this series."
