About Michael


Bio

I am experienced as both a musician and a teacher. I have created music with hip-hop groups, a band fusing bluegrass and klezmer, an orchestra playing traditional Arabic music, gospel choirs, a cumbia and ranchero group, punk rock, folk singer-songwriters, and country bands.

Basically, musically speaking, I don’t believe in boundaries – I don’t think musicians need to be categorized or put into little boxes. I think people should be allowed to explore whatever voices they find something...

I am experienced as both a musician and a teacher. I have created music with hip-hop groups, a band fusing bluegrass and klezmer, an orchestra playing traditional Arabic music, gospel choirs, a cumbia and ranchero group, punk rock, folk singer-songwriters, and country bands.

Basically, musically speaking, I don’t believe in boundaries – I don’t think musicians need to be categorized or put into little boxes. I think people should be allowed to explore whatever voices they find something true and beautiful – and feel free to add their own voice. Just as with my own playing, as a teacher I seek to unleash the creativity and freedom and love of music I believe is within everyone, and strive to be flexible and patient, doing whatever it takes to help you empower yourself.

I am trained in the Suzuki Method as a way of introducing the violin, as well as the Music Together method of building basic music competence, and practice these skills alongside building violin repertoire that both speaks to the versatility of the instrument in adding to the diversity of the world's musical expressions, and emphasis your own "heart music" that really connects with you.

I teach in a fun and gentle style that is encouraging and patient, building a solid foundation but trying to have fun in the process.
