During this time Michael discovered he had a real flare for teaching, especially to very young children and an ability to make learning the instrument both fun and educational.
Today Michael is Head of Contemporary Music at the prestigious Canford School where he also teaches Music Technology and is principle guitar teacher at Castle Court School.
Despite his busy teaching schedule he still regularly gives recitals in the UK, Europe, America and on the high seas around the world on P&O Luxury Cruises.
Michael is also in demand as an adjudicator at music festivals and in his spare time runs his own recording studio for classical musicians. He plays a Rohan Lowe Torres style classical guitar, who is affectionately known as Amelia.
