Mike's Guitar Studio is based on the belief that the students needs are of the utmost importance. The Studio is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.

Lessons are catered towards what the student wants to learn. There is no one method that works for each student. Each student has different ways of learning, we recognize this and apply it to our teaching policy. The Lessons should be a fun and positive experience as the student progresses on his or her instrument.

The primary instructor/ owner, Mike Benninger, has a B.M. in music performance from Keene State College and a M.M. in music performance from the Yale School of Music. Mike's Guitar Studio is located in New Windsor in Mike's Home Recording/Music studio. Recording can be an added tool for recording lessons, songs, pieces, and ideas.

  • I would recommend this business

I have Known my instructor for about five years. During that time he has been my guitar teacher. He has taken me from a novice classical guitar player to a player of greater technique and ability. He continues to inspire my playing with a combination of patience and skill. We have grown in our relationship over the years, and he is always willing to listen to my technical issues. He often is able to solve my problems with a precise and accurate "tip". His own playing is clearly at an exceptional level, and yet his modesty and humility always shine through. It has been a blessing for me to have had him as my teacher over the years. I hope this will continue in the future. I highly recommend Mike's Guitar Studio as your music school.

Customer Testimonials

My children (ages 13 and 10) have been going to Mike’s Guitar Studio for guitar and piano lessons for the last three years. Their instructor teaches in a way that makes it fun to learn and keep them coming back for more. They started with no music background and now they can play, read sheet music and appreciate music a lot more than they did before. There is nothing better than listening to them argue over who practiced more between lessons.


I have been taking lessons from Mike for over 6 years. Mike is without a doubt the best guitar teacher I have ever had. He has a plethora of knowledge, and is constantly improving my musical knowledge. Mike not only is a great teacher, but he is fun to be around, and I look forward to lessons each week. Mike recently helped me complete an album of 11 songs in his very own studio. He is very fun to work with and knows a lot about the whole recording process. Mike is a first rate teacher, and I would recommend anyone who is looking for a private teacher to go with Mike.

From Our Website

WHAT DO YOU LEARN IN YOUR MUSIC LESSONS?That question is often asked by prospective students. Our teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals. We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach. A seven year old having their first guitar lesson will have very different needs than a fifty seven year old taking up piano for the 2nd time after having had lessons as a child. The main reason to choose this school as your music lesson provider, is that we are sensitive to the fact that every student is an individual.
