Mike Facey has been teaching guitar, bass, drums and piano for over a decade, both privately and in class settings.


Mike's passion for music was sparked during childhood, when he started playing the guitar. At first falling in love with rock and roll, he decided a music degree would help him broaden his horizons. Relocating from Vermont to Colorado, Mike earned his Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance at CU Boulder, studying guitar, electric and upright bass while also picking up both piano and drums.

After maintaining a busy gigging and teaching schedule on the front range, Mike relocated to the mountains, where he honed his teaching skills by leading the guitar program at Basalt High School, teaching classical guitar for the Aspen Music Festival, directing local middle school and high school big bands through Jazz Aspen Snowmass, and maintaining a private studio of 10-20 students on guitar, bass, drums, and piano.

Rather than use a one-size-fits-all teaching method, Mike tailors lessons to each student's individual goals and needs. This versatility makes him an excellent teacher match for students of all ages, ability levels, and interests. Lessons can include as much or as little music theory, sight reading, improvisation, song writing, and/or ear training as the student would like.

Mike is currently a Master of Music degree candidate in Jazz Performance and Pedagogy back at CU Boulder, where he is a former Teaching Assistant. He also maintains a busy performing schedule playing locally and touring in the jazz, classical, rock, and bluegrass idioms, having shared the stage with jazz legend Paquito D'Rivera, folk legend John Mceuen, and popular bands Twiddle and Greensky Bluegrass, to name a few.
