Why Pitch Michael?
Raising up the next generation of musicians and performers is not an option for Pitch, it’s a necessity!
“I would be nowhere as a performer and songwriter without the time, energy, and insight bestowed upon my by the musical veterans of the generations before me.” ~Pitch Michael
Pitch believes music should be enjoyable! This may sound like an obvious statement but Pitch finds himself receiving many ‘refugee’ students from teachers who did not make learning fun for them. Hard work and practicing can be less of a burden if you are studying something you want to learn. Every student has different interests when it comes to music, one piano student may enjoy Beethoven, where as one guitar student may really love Van Halen. Pitch’s method of teaching music is fluid enough to incorporate the students interests while still holding to the integrity of teaching the music principles, music theory, and music techniques properly.
