Hailed for his prodigious technique and praised by the Washington Post for an “unusually fresh and arresting approach to the piano,” Michael has cultivated a versatile career as soloist, chamber musician and pre-concert lecturer. In addition to performing throughout the United States, he has also performed in France, Italy, and Australia. Michael earned his master’s degree, artist diploma, and a doctoral degree from Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, where he studied with Leon Fleisher and Ellen Mack.
