Not Teaching Week One

Week Two

Flatpicking Team

Born into a musical family (the same one as the director of this Kamp) long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away. A guitarist, singer, songwriter and performer, Mike has played at concerts, coffeehouses, bars, churches, festivals, porches and living rooms throughout the east coast. Mike worked his way through college teaching guitar, graduating with a degree in Music Education from Montclair State College, followed by a Master's in Education Leadership from Thomas Edison State College.    

His latest project (working title "Carolina Life"), is a collection of original and traditional songs.    

Mike thought he was retired, living in Mt. Pleasant, SC with his wife, Suzanne, and their 16- year old grandson, Dustin. However, he is back teaching music in the Berkeley County schools. He is happy to be back at Kamp for the relative peace and quiet, and is still trying to figure out what to be when    he grows up.
