Mich Shirey


Expressing yourself is the ultimate goal of music and my job is to help you get your point across! After completing my Bachelor's degree in guitar performance in 2013, I  toured internationally with the indie rock artist Greg Woods as well as Gramps the Vamp, a horror inspired instrumental jazz group.

Throughout my career I have had the honor of performing with renowned songwriters Todd Rundgren and Charlie Sexton as well as studying under guitarist Isaiah Sharkey (John Mayer, D’Angelo). Currently, I work as a music composer for short films and play guitar with my jazz trio as well as other artists around the Chicago area.As an educator, I strive to be more of a mentor and friend rather than a taskmaster. However, I do require structure and a commitment to getting better.
