Mike Lowden has been playing guitar for as long as he can remember, and has found a love of teaching it. Mike has education from Berklee College of Music in Boston and the University of Akron Jazz Studies program. Jazz is a very strong love, but he is a self-described “music nerd” who listens to pretty much anything and everything. It’s not uncommon to see him playing classical music at a library or public park, with his own rock band, filling in for a country or heavy metal band, and a jazz gig all in the same week. Mike’s teaching style is completely personalized for each student, rather than using “canned” lessons for everyone, to help meet each student’s personal goals. Check out his band From Borealis.
