Touring multi-instrumentalist and composer.
Michael's path as a musician is constantly evolving with new influences, which allow him comfort in diverse settings such as jazz, classical, folk, rock, and avant-garde performances. His philosophy relies on community building and nurturing the skills to be an active leader and listener in music making.
"When you create music, whether you are practicing at home, playing for a friend, or for a crowded stadium, you are tapping into the universe's first moment when the Big Bang happened and by making music, we get to remember this feeling and connect with others in an experience that is unique to being human."
"Michael is a brilliant and warm Trala teacher. I always enjoy talking with him, even when sometimes it's not about violin."
"So happy with Michael! My younger son can’t wait to start playing violin because he’s excited to have Michael as a teacher!"
"Michael is so tuned in to my playing, and I appreciate his very deliberate presentation of new material."
