My name is Mike Ellis. I have been a Lake Highlands resident for thirty-seven years, raised three children here and am a local music instructor in the Lake Highlands area. My music instruction business has been featured in the Advocate Magazine.

I had the good fortune to be taken under the wing of the late Mr. Terrill Gardner, who taught me HOW to teach a method he spent thirty years perfecting. It works, guaranteed. He took me from Rolling Stones through studies at Berklee College in the seven years of lessons he gave me.

I have a private studio with a large, comfortable waiting area for family or friends, a teaching area for the student and teacher only, with a window for viewing the student any time during the lessons, and restrooms and water fountain down the hall from my studio.
