Mike DeMicco is an excellent teacher who covers everything  you'll need to build a solid jazz foundation.  These videos are all outstanding and I highly recommend them.

Critics' Choice, America Online

DeMicco is best known for his fluid fusion work with The Dolphins, but as a guitar instructor he prefers a steady, straight ahead approach.  Not the least of his talents as a teacher is his ability to integrate (concepts and fundamentals of improvisation), so that it's easy to understand.

Jazz Times

Mike DeMicco is an articulate young guitarist.  Beginning or intermediate improvisers, regardless of instrument could benefit from DeMicco's well-organized and clearly presented instruction.  DeMicco offers solid advice on building emotionally charged and structurally sound solos. The set's (You Can Play Jazz Guitar, Homespun) success rests squarely on DeMicco's ability to communicate basic information clearly and calmly, and what he's playing sounds terrific.  Indeed, DeMicco's lyrical lines, crisp articulation, and mellow electronic sound are worthy of emulation.

Chuck Berg, Jazz Educators Journal

As a jazz player, on the strength of this video, Mike DeMicco deserves wider recognition. The solid instructional value of this video is excellent and very useful. DeMicco is a well-respected teacher in the States and this shows through. An enormous amount of information, will keep the aspiring player busy for many a long day and  night.  It's nice to see a video that's actually useful.  All in all, a fine video that is to be recommended purely on its use as an educational tool.

As a clinician, Mike is very personable with young students.  He can convey exactly what he wants to and they understand what he is talking about because he can perform all his knowledge at a very high level.  Mike is very thorough, articulate and makes everyone feel very relaxed.  I've been an educator for over thirty years and have seen many clinicians and I have to say that Mike is one of the best I've seen.

Our children were rapt with attention as Chris Brubeck and Mike DeMicco described the relationships between jazz and classical music through talk and demonstration.  The parents and invited public who attended were also most enthusiastic.  One hour was not nearly long enough . . . I highly recommend this program.  I heard nothing but rave comments and hopefully a “sequel” will be available soon.   We can’t wait!
