Marion July 2015 Teacher Feature: Mike Williams
By West Music Company
7/1/2015 2:36:00 PM
Mike Williams teaches guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo, dobro and harmonica. He started playing musical instruments at age 9 with piano. He has worked at Carma Lou’s here in Cedar Rapids for 5 years and with West Music for 15 years. Mike studied under Steve Grismore, the director of University of Iowa jazz department.

Mike plays every Thursday at the VFW and every Sunday hosts an open mic. Friday and Saturday he plays with various bands. He also appears on the Mike and Rob Show.  His favorite thing about teaching is seeing his students playing at jam sessions. One of his most interesting musical experiences was performing on mandolin with Orchestra Iowa in the Cedar Rapids Opera performance of Don Quixote this past spring.

In his spare time Mike enjoys hiking, camping and rock collecting. You can find Mike Williams online at crguitarlessons.com or slidewilliams.com.
