Fiddle, Music Performance, Music Theory, Violin

About Me

I am very passionate about teaching and hope to inspire a love for music in all my students! I believe that with hard work and a supportive teacher, a person can achieve anything. I impart to my students the knowledge I received from one of the nation's most prestigious music conservatories, and I offer training from methods in which I am certified to teach, all in a nurturing and friendly environment.

I am certified in the Sassmannshaus Method (Early Start on the Violin) and was trained in the Suzuki Method. I have also studied pedagogy under Professor Kurt Sassmannshaus at the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music. I previously taught private lessons, chamber music, and masterclasses at the Virginia Beach School of the Arts, the Hampton Roads Performing Arts Academy (VA), and the Seven Hills School in Cincinnati.

Aside from teaching, I am a professional violinist. Currently, I am the acting Assistant Concertmaster with the Olympia Symphony Orchestra and am also a member of the Yakima Symphony Orchestra. Prior to moving to Washington State, I previously performed with the Fayetteville Symphony, Tar River Philharmonic, Knoxville Symphony, Richmond (IN) Symphony, Symphony of the Mountains (TN), and the Oak Ridge Symphony. I have also attended many of the nation's premier music festivals, including the Castleton Festival, Texas Music Festival, Round Top Festival Institute, and the Brevard Music Center.

I earned BM and MM degrees in violin performance from the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music (CCM), where I graduated Summa Cum Laude. My primary teachers were Dr. Piotr Milewski and Gabriel Pegis.

Albert Einsten said, "I know that the most joy in my life has come to me from my violin." My joy comes from enabling students to experience this. Please join me for lessons!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very upbeat and motivational in lessons. I care about helping my students succeed and achieve their goals. I'm honest but never harsh, and I challenge my students in order to help them flourish as talented musicians.

I use a combination of the Sassmannshaus Method and the Suzuki Method. Both will teach the student the fundamentals of violin playing, how to read music, and famous pieces from the violin repertoire. Students who use this combination have gone on to become very advanced players, and someday, this could be you! Let me help you reach your highest potential!

*** Studio Equipment ***
In home: private, designated studio with music stand, metronome, and additional accessories, music, and equipment for student; seating for parents.
I require that students rent or purchase their own instrument and necessary accessories (shoulder rest, rosin, strings, etc.)

*** Specialties ***
I was trained for 11 years in the Suzuki method, and I am a certified teacher of the Sassmannshaus Tradition violin method (Early Start on the Violin). I am classically trained and am most experienced teaching in that style, but I also enjoy fiddle and folk music and could teach in those styles as well.

Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Singing, Songwriting

About Me

My name is Michael and I'm a Singer/Songwriter who studied music theory, voice and education at The Hartt School of Music. I also hold a degree from Berklee College of Music in Music Production and Sound Engineering with a primary instrument study in guitar. I have had a diverse career in the music industry ranging from working as an Opera Singer for The Connecticut Opera House, playing guitar for various jazz singers, fronting my own bands, working music technology jobs with Cakewalk Music Software, Sibelius Music Notation Software and Lexicon as well as being a Studio Supervisor for Berklee College of Music's Music Production and Sound Engineering. I owned and ran Soundloft Studio LLC., a single room tracking and mixing studio, which was based in Los Angeles and later moved to San Francisco before closing down in 2009. I have been a freelance music teacher since 1997.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach both traditional theory and Berklee modern theory, voice, guitar, fretless guitar, song writing, sound engineering and music software use. Lessons are taught out of my house which is equipped with a home studio, small overdub room and a MIDI room. The house has been dedicated to songwriting, production and general music teaching and recording.

We are currently undergoing upgrades to out gear and will offer a full multi-track studio with 32 channels of automated mixing along side an expanded MIDI room, including the infamous Roland TD-20x Drum kit and a fully weighted 88-key stage piano - including Ableton Live 9 Suite featuring next gen. hardware -- Ableton Push.

My goal is to offer a full music production and teaching house for musicians of all ages and skill sets.

Masterclasses are held once a month and are optional.

*** Studio Equipment ***
- 34 Fader, 96 Channel Pro-Tools 11 via 2x Tascam DM-3200 Cascaded Together - Fully Automated
- Pro-Tools 11, Ableton Live 9 Suite with Push, Sibelius 6, More Available On Request
- Various Recording Mics for Analog Drums, vocals, instruments and amplifiers
- Guitar Amps and Amp Simulators (Software and Hardware)
- Roland Stage Piano
- Roland V-Drum Kit with expanded sound module
- Electric, Nylon, Acoustic and Fretless Guitars
- Macintosh based studio
- Adam and Roland Studio Monitors
- Additional computer for softsynths, etc.
- Additional Digital Mixer with sound card for synth computer

*** Specialties ***
With voice, I have studied and incorporate the Alexander Technique into my teaching -- which works on proper posture through upper spinal control for better natural timbre and breath support.

I have also studied and incorporate the Bel Canto vocal techniques which involve modifying the vowel your singing depending on the pitch you are singing to gain maximum resonance.

With guitar, I like to focus on keeping my students playing music they are interested in while working in some reading -- depending on the student we will focus more on one or the other; but always keep in mind proper technique.

Recording is about listening and using what you have at your disposal.
