I created this site because I wanted to give back to the community of musicians around the world.
The twenty-first century has seen several doors close for musicians with the recording industry flailing and many live performance groups closing up shop. While these doors have been closing, many more have been opening and I am passionate about sharing these new opportunities.
I trained as a classical guitarist and completed my bachelors of music at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in Australia. I then went on to complete a Masters and Doctorate of Music at Yale University. During my time at Yale I started posting online tutorials about technique and musicianship, and at the time I had no particular goal of what I wanted to achieve online, I just knew I enjoyed sharing and seeing others benefit from what I had to say.
Fast forward ten years later and I make a full time income from my online music schools Classical Guitar Corner, Michael & Evita, and Powis Academy. Now I want to share what I have learned so that other musicians can benefit from this giant opportunity that has presented itself with online education.
