Music has been a part of Michael's life for as long as he can remember. He began playing guitar at the age of 12. Michael has played in numerous bands throughout the years, starting his first band in middle school. One of his biggest influences growing up was his first guitar instructor. Through his teaching techniques, he inspired Michael to become the best guitarist he could be. Which in turn, is what Michael's ultimate goal will be for his students.
Michael graduated from Elon University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Music Technology, and a concentration on guitar performance. During his time at Elon, he learned very quickly how to manage his time wisely, having to devote time to both playing baseball at the Division I level, and keeping up with the demanding academic expectations of his degree. He performed in numerous ensembles, gave lessons to students, performed, produced and engineered several albums, and managed the recording studio.
Michael currently resides in Raleigh, North Carolina.
