Michael graduated from the prestigious Music Education Program and Psychology Program at Ithaca College in 2012. Ithaca gave him the incredible opportunity to hone in on his musicianship and compositional skills. He was also able to discover a new medium of composition, film composition. Michael immediately fell in love with the art of writing music for film and was able to make his first musical debut on a film directed by Mike Blaney. In his time at Ithaca College, he composed scores for multiple films and continues to maintain an active composition career. Michael is currently finishing as a music teacher Brooklyn Scholars Charter School (BSCS) and Music Content Leader for National Heritage Academies (NHA) New York Branch. Michael is currently in school studying the psychological benefits of music education for children and adolescents, while teaching private lessons.Show More

Micheal is so kind! He really has wonderful energy and my daughter gets excited with all his praise and instruction. We are very lucky to find him here.
I love his patience in teaching my son. I'm looking forward for the best as my son continues to learn from him.
Truly one of the most engaged and encouraging teachers that we've ever encountered! Michael was endlessly creative and patient with getting the most out of our "grudging" young student.
Michael was so friendly and so great with my son! Patient and nurturing and was a true pleasure. We were very happy!
Best instructor ever! Michael tailors each lesson for my 10-year-old son--who honestly is a reluctant student. In three lessons Michael has improved his playing and also given him practical fun tips on how to practice between lessons.
My son loves playing trombone with Michael! He
makes learning fun and is always positive and encouraging.
Really appreciate his work with my son!
Started on time and the first session went very well.
Michael was very professional and kind. My son loved his lesson!
