Al-Ubaidi,_MitchellMitchell A., Guitar
Mitchell Al-Ubaidi started teaching in September of 2019. He is attending the University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh for Music Education with an emphasis in voice/choral. As a young boy he always loved how music communicates with the world and how it speaks to people in different ways. While he is currently studying voice as a primary instrument, his first musical instrument he learned was the guitar, and a few short years later, he learned piano. Mitchell performs in the UW Oshkosh Chamber Choir and is a former member of Appleton’s newVoices choir. Mitchell’s teaching style is through method books, teaching by ear, and music theory. Mitchell’s music styles are rock, funk, pop, acoustic and many more. Mitchell believes that music is more than what we hear; it’s what we feel. Mitchell is looking forward to working with you!
