My son has been a student of Michael’s for almost 7 years. He has motivated my son while nurturing his gift of music. He is a very patient, wonderful, and encouraging teacher.

My son Connor has been taking lessons with Michael since the age of five. It has been a very positive experience since Michael comes to our home. Connor has enjoyed working on an electric piano with the options of different sounds and instruments included. The purchase of this piano was the suggestion of Michael.

Over the last seven years, we have seen Connor make great progress. Michael has been accommodating to Connor‘s musical preferences which keeps learning music fun. I always recommend Michael to any friends who may be interested in learning to play the piano.

Michael has a unique gift when it comes to teaching music. His ability to explain music and technique in a way that is easy to understand and effortless to follow (regardless of the instrument) is unparalleled. It’s a pleasure to watch Michael as he enthusiastically engages in each lesson and I just love his energy, his kindness, his patience and his method. He creates an environment that is friendly, supportive and inspiring.
In the past year since we have started our journey with Michael, my sons have made tremendous progress not only in learning instruments but also in their ear training and practicing habits. I’m delighted to see how their love of music and technique has evolved and I have no doubt they will continue to learn from Michael far beyond their school years!


about michael

We all have a moment in our past that started our excitement in music. For me, that was Billy Joel. From a young age through my teens, I was interested in music but was told I was told I had no natural musical ability, and was even turned down as a student by music teachers. Finally at age 19, after only 3 months of lessons, I was performing advanced Billy Joel songs at a recital.

Now, with a B.A. in Classical Piano and over 20 years of music teaching experience, I love sharing my passion for music with my students. I understand the student struggle (because I’ve been there), and I use my experience to create unique practice strategies that will help you succeed.

Though I was once told I had no ‘natural musical ability’, I’m proof of where passion and dedication can lead you. Over the years, I’ve worked with students of all ages and levels, and will work with you to customize your lessons to help you reach your musical potential.
