Michael was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Music has been his passion since age 10. He was fortunate to have an outstanding teacher for seven years and then proceeded to the Conservatory of Music at Marquette University. He graduated from there with a bachelors degree in Music Performance.
Michael has played over 2000 performances for such diverse people as Sophia Loren and Ronald Reagan and Young MC. Teaching and owning a piano store for 20 years has enabled him to meet some creative, talented and musically fun people. In 2009, he relocated to Scottsdale, Arizona where he set up private teaching at his home studio.
The greatest achievement in his life have been his children.
“Kat and Brian (Kat’s Artist Tree) are an enhanced blessing in my life.”
