Michal W

Michal (“Me-how”) Witek began playing guitar over 20 years ago in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois. At an early age, he was introduced to classic rock - his first love - but quickly started exploring other genres such as pop, jazz, alternative, funk, fusion, country, and metal. It wasn’t long before he joined a variety of groups such as alternative rock bands, jazz ensembles, and pit orchestras, and found himself performing at notable venues such as House of Blues Chicago, Austin City Limits Live, and Jazz at Lincoln Center in NYC. He currently performs solo, as a session guitarist, and with his band, Tarry and the Towns, in Austin, Texas. 
Michal holds a BS in Systems Engineering and Design from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, along with a minor in Electrical Engineering.


Michal ensures his students receive a strong foundation of music theory while also developing practical skills such as ear training, songwriting, improvisation, and music technology. He understands that no two students are the same, therefore he uniquely tailors his lessons for each student to ensure they are having fun while achieving their goals. He is available for in-person lessons on Wednesdays and Saturdays and teaches guitar, bass, drums, ukulele, piano, voice and music production."
