We are excited to announce that Aaron, in addition to continuing as front man and funky dancer extraordinaire for Micah and Me, is teaching at Artichoke Music located at 2007 SE Powell Blvd, Portland, Oregon.
Here is his bio:
Aaron started guitar at age ten. He played a lot of Bluegrass rhythm guitar through high school and college. He bought a Selmer-style guitar with loan money in college and played gypsy jazz rhythm guitar in a slightly macabre band called Le Combo Diabolique.
He played bass guitar in a Christian rock band for one year.
In high school he played timpani, receiving a standing ovation for his performance of Timpat, a piece for concert band centered around the timpani. He broke his arm during high school so he switched from timpani to trumpet for one year.
He played the drum set once in a heavy metal band and many times in gospel trios.
He played the Bodhran in a contra band for several years.
In college he learned a fun muscle memory technique for quickly memorizing piano sheet music.
At age 40 he picked up the ukulele out of convenience because lugging a guitar, a toddler and a diaper bag to gigs on the bus was downright obnoxious. Now he has 25 ukuleles!
Aaron’s style of teaching is to find out what genre of music excites you the most, and then help you find the songs that match your ability in that genre. Once you are excited, the work of practicing becomes easy, and the music will continue to give back to you!
Aaron can teach on any of the above mentioned instruments, though he is most proficient on the guitar, ukulele and Bodhran.
Aaron charges $30 for a 30-60 minute lesson. Add $15 per each family member that joins in learning an instrument during the same lesson.

We play the ukulele, guitar and bass drum while singing and dancing our hearts out! The show is 45-60 minutes depending on the kids’ attention span. Kids and parents engage in guided and free form dancing throughout our show. We often incorporate scarves, parachutes, silly hats and bubbles! We love performing for children and families, loving nothing more than getting everyone on their feet dancing!

Micah and Me:
At our parties children are encouraged to dance and sing and even play along with their own instruments! We offer an instrument petting zoo at the end of the show for kids to try out any of the instruments we bring! We also have a commercial grade bubble machine available that will fill a backyard with bubbles during the entire show!
We would love to play at your party!
We also play as a full band and can provide live amplified entertainment for your street party or festival!
