“ I enjoyed my weekly Zoom lessons with Michael. He was very structured and clear explaining each topic. The video tutorials and the online exercises helped me review the lessons effectively. He prepared me very well that I passed the Grade 5 exam with distinction. I am so grateful to have Michael as my music theory teacher."

I have really enjoyed my lessons with Michael. He is a fantastic teacher and with the one to one lessons he was really able to tailor things to suit me. The online resources are great too and allowed me to learn more between our lessons. With Michael's teaching I have now achieved a distinction at Grade 5
