About Michael

I have been active as a teacher, collaborator, composer and performer in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York. I holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Southern California where he studied with Daniel Pollack. My teachers have included David Kaiserman at Northwestern University and Boris Berman at Yale University and he has been a participant in Master Classes conducted by Richard Goode, Claude Frank, and Alicia de Larrocha. My graduate studies included work in the areas of music theory, music history, and electro-acoustic media. I am a member of the Pi Kappa Lambda music honor society and the Music Teacher’s National Association.

I am a former faculty member at the Third Street Music School Settlement in Manhattan and the Los Angeles Music and Art School. I teach piano, theory out of his studio in Valley Village, CA.

I have a strong love and understanding of music, especially the piano, and I enjoy sharing my knowledge, experience and passion for the instrument with others.

Whether you're just starting out or simply want to bring your playing to a new level, I can help you reach your musical goals. Lessons are tailored to your musical taste. You play the music you like. Or I can guide you through the standard repertoire and techniques for a more traditional approach.
