Michael R.

Albany, NY

About Michael

As a recent graduate of the Conservatory of Music at SUNY Purchase, I have been a performing classical pianist for nearly 20 years. I hold a Masters Degree in Piano Performance, and have had the great advantage of studying with many of today's top classical musicians, including Steven Lubin, Stephanie Brown, Paul Ostrovsky, Julia Lichten, and Stuart Isacoff. I've won many top prizes in competitions and have performed extensively throughout New York State. I'm very lucky to have had the opportunity to perform for the Governor, and both NYS Senators.

Having taught music since the age of 15,
I am also an experienced and motivated teacher. Nothing excites me more than sharing my love and knowledge of music with others. Whether you are looking to boost your NYSSMA score, and compete in competitions, or are just starting out, I can tailor lessons to your specific level and musical interests. Being in my 20's, I have a great rapport with children, and adults alike.

Mike is the best. He sees the potential in his students and gets them to reach a little farther than they thought possible. He is great with children and very patient.
