I am a concert pianist with a passion for teaching. From a boarding arts secondary school to prestigious conservatories in both the US and Europe, I have honed my craft, and developed a love for sharing my passion with others. I have taught students at the Yale School of Music and at the Eastman School of Music in the United States. Additionally, I have taught a private studio for a year in Brussels, Belgium and given masterclasses at universities and schools across the Americas. My goal as a teacher is to instill my own love for music in my students.

I am a concert pianist with a passion for teaching. From a boarding arts secondary school to prestigious conservatories in both the US and Europe, I have honed my craft, and developed a love for sharing my passion with others. I studied with some of the best teachers in the world at Eastman, the Yale School of Music, the Paris Conservatoire, and the Royal Conservatory of Ghent, in addition to having attended some of the greatest festivals in the world to study with other great pianists and pedagogues. Teaching has always come naturally to me and has felt like a natural extension of my abilities as a performer. I believe it is a necessity to spread what I have learned through teaching.
Private studio of students aged 5 to 65 in Brussels, Belgium
Taught piano to undergraduates and graduate students who were non-piano majors.
Patient and nice with children
Michael knows what he's doing and makes great suggestions on how to be better. A great teacher!
Michael adapted himself very quickly to 'what' I wanted to play and 'how' I needed to learn taking into account my little experience. He is very positive and motivating.
Michael is a great teacher! I studied with him while he was teaching at Yale. He is a very attentive and careful instructor and generous with his time. He has a profound understanding of music and is very competent also in technical aspects of practicing. I absolutely recommend him!Show More
You really can't find a better instructor. Motivating, patient, well-measured approach to students. Thank you, Michael!
