Book a Lesson with Michael Lentz



I am a classically trained and professional musician who has worn many different musical hats over the years. I began playing drums when I was 14, in Houston, TX with Craig LeMay, and since then I have learned many different string and world instruments. I studied music theory and vocal performance at the Florence University of the Arts in Italy, taken sitar lessons from Mita Nag in Kolkatta, India, and jazz performance in Austin, TX with Joey Colarusso. I have played in many different bands over the years, such as accompanying Michael Kiwanuka with the musical saw, accompanying Katie Sachs with the musical saw, playing bass guitar with Halaska and DJing  private events with Spacecraft Entertainment.  I have been teaching music to special education students, in Austin public schools, and foster children with Kids in a New Groove. I have also built and modified many of my own instruments and ready to teach you some quirky musical production skills as well.  I believe listening and being adaptable to an individual student's needs are the keys to teaching anyone to express themselves through music.   

Slow, methodical, adaptive, theoretical, practical, rhythmic.

I can teach traditional melodies, cover songs, and music theory. I have lots of lesson plans to pull from depending on the instrument and genre you are interested in.

Reviews of lessons with Michael Lentz

All reviews on Lessonface are by students or parents of students who have taken lessons on Lessonface.
Michael is an excellent instructor, very patient and helpful for this no-musical-background student who is starting late in life. I'm very excited about this. I'm glad I found Lessonface and Michael because I don't have to leave my house to take a lesson.
