Hi Mike here. Just a bit about my background.
I completed a diploma at 'The Guitar Institute' in London in 2002 after having qualified as a secondary school teacher from UCC (University College Cork) some years previously.
In 2003 I decided to go into teaching music full-time and combining my love of guitar with my passion for teaching, I set up the 'Ennis Guitar School' in my home town Ennis in Co. Clare, Ireland.
I have been playing and teaching guitar for more than 30 years now (having taught privately before opening my school) and I have taught thousands of students of all ages and all levels, both one-to-one and in groups.
During this time I also delivered guitar workshops on behalf of a wide range of organisations including Music Generation Ireland (set up and funded by Bono and U2) and taught guitar in several primary and second level schools throughout County Clare as well as running Adult workshops.
I am interested in and play many types of music including Folk, Rock, Blues, Country, Ragtime and Fingerstyle and I have played in bands, solo and other musical combos.
I grew up listening to Irish ballads and folk songs performed by artists such as the Dubliners, Clancy brothers, Mary Black, Christy Moore, Planxty and the Furey brothers to name a few and this music in particular has always been close to my heart.
