Mike Loce, from the city of Revere, Massachusetts, USA, has been living as a professional musician since 1994.
After college, the desire to create original music and to achieve high levels on his instrument took precedence in Mike’s life. He abandoned the way he’d previously done things and set out on an inspired Loce Course of both musical and philosophical development.
Through years of odd jobs, finally all employment appeared in the field of guitar in 2000 with Parker Guitars, a technical position. Mike then appeared with musical troupes such as Boston Rock Opera, and for four years he supported and helped develop a small online company called Personal Guitar School/Learn Music. Inc, later to become Sam Ash Music Institute. Other New England businesses that have hired Mike to help develop their vision of music education include Music Academy of Chelmsford, TLP Music School, BLT Music School, HEI Music, Music Elements, and Nashua Community Music School.
Throughout these years, Mike recorded a variety of compositions with many talented performers and musicians. Since 2009 the humble ukulele has made its way into his repertoire, as a request originally to teach it. A group called “The Ukestra with Mike Loce” is a result of those efforts.
Mike is a registered songwriter and music publisher with ASCAP. He works teaching guitar and ukulele in the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts and New Hampshire, composing/arranging music, performing, and doing recording sessions.
Mike thanks the students, friends, and colleagues he has met on his musical journey thus far, and is grateful for both the time and energy expended in the name of making music learning, guitar and ukulele more of a reality to many people.
