    Develop your guitar playing under the guidance of Mike Walker

‘‘ Practisin2Play is looking amazing . . . it's the best thing I've seen on the web ’’

Pete Sklaroff - Guitarist and former Head of Jazz Studies at Leeds College of Music.

‘‘ Mike is a compass for lost musicians. Practisin2Play represents a milestone in guitar tuition ’’

Fred Lawton – Guitarist and RNCM student

‘‘ I've seen a few guitar tuition websites around and this is easily the best I've come across. I have no doubt that Practisin2Play will improve your playing dramatically. Beautifully presented with concise direction and stunning examples played by Mike himself, Practisin2Play will get your playing to the next level ’’

Jim Faulkner – Guitarist and Lecturer at LIPA

‘‘ Practisin2Play is improving my playing and understanding so much . . . “Catch a man a fish and you’ll feed him for a day. Teach a man how to fish and you’ll feed him for a lifetime”. Well Mike, you teach people how to fish! ’’

Brad Edmondson – Guitarist and Practisin2Play member

‘‘ Practisin2Play. Why would anyone go anywhere else . . . ? ’’

Stuart McCallum – Guitarist with the Cinematic Orchestra

‘‘ Mike Walker is a passionate, impulsive player; his solos careen down uncharted byways at breakneck speed. You might think you'd do better to study with someone methodical and deliberate. But here's the paradox: Mike got to the remarkable place he's at by meticulous and careful study. He knows as much about playing music on a stringed instrument as anybody I know, and he can articulate what he's learned with wit and wisdom. He is insatiably curious. Like any great teacher, he'll be learning alongside you; you'll both be better musicians in the end. As he says now and then, go for it ’’

Steve Swallow: Composer/Bassist for John Scofield, Pat Metheny, Stan Getz, etc.

‘‘ I love any occasion when I get to sing with Mike. He plays with a passion and warmth and is a great communicator. These qualities along with his empathy make him a wonderful teacher ’’

Norma Winstone MBE: Jazz Vocalist, ECM recording artist and Grammy Award nominee.

‘‘ Exciting, dynamic, a true improviser. Mike Walker is a musician who captures your attention and won't let it go. An exceptional guitarist ’’

John Parricelli: Guitarist and Guitar Teacher at Royal Academy of Music, London.
