About Michael D.

I am an teacher, composer, and arranger from Long Island, New York. I received my Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education from LIU Post (Long Island University). At LIU Post, I studied composition and orchestration with renowned educational composer Carl Strommen, trumpet with Brad Siroky, and conducting with Dr. James McRoy.

I have over 10 years of teaching experience. I have taught beginning 5th grade beginning band, middle school band, and high school band. and jazz band in both public and private schools! I have also worked with students with special needs both in school and privately.

Now, I live in central Florida with my wife, Jenn, and our rescue doggo, Bailey.

Due to the current global health pandemic, I am offering online lessons, with the intention of transitioning back into in-person lessons once it's safe to do so. I'm looking forward to working with you, and feel free to ask me any questions you may have!

Michael is an wonderful teacher! He is extremely patient, very encouraging, informative, personable, and easy to talk to. I have always wanted to play an instrument so I decided to take trumpet lessons. I am very happy Michael and I crossed paths. I work full time and he is very flexible with my schedule. He has coached me not only on how to play, but how to care for my trumpet- today my lesson included how to clean it. I am in awe with the how many instruments he can play. This is also fun for me because after just a few lessons, we are playing duets together! I am also excited that after a short period of time, I am actually reading music. Overall an amazing teacher that I would recommend for any instrument because of his vast knowledge in music!
