Private Music and Band Performance Lessons

Mike Irene Music is a private music learning studio that focuses on the Rhythm Section (Drums, Bass, Guitar, Piano & Voice).  The objective is to bring students of comparable levels together in an ensemble setting to rehearse and understand what it takes to play in a live band.  Most students will have 3 private lessons plus 1 hour of ensemble rehearsal with other students each month.  We are preparing for recital performances that take place 3 times per year.  Most students perform 1 to 2 songs or more per recital and get to perform in front of their family and friends.  Who knows... maybe a record promoter will be in the audience!

Students have the opportunity to work directly with Mike.  With over 30 years of Study and experience, Mike holds a Bachelor of Music Degree from Boston's renowned
Berklee College of Music, class of 1993.  As a formally trained and actively working musician, producer and teacher, Mike offers the best of practical and performance training.  Our ensemble performance approach helps to motivate students to spend time with their instrument and really learn "the song."  Our students are learning to read and write music, understand music theory and song form, and develop true musicianship by experience.
