Michael is a Chicago native who has accumulated a huge variety of musical experiences – everything from rocking out on stage in front of big crowds to singing in small choral ensembles, playing in a band living in Europe, living as a musician in Nashville, and singing songs for kids in schools and beyond! While he was a language teacher teaching English and Spanish, he would often bring his guitar into the classroom and incorporate songs in the lessons in both languages. After all, music makes everything more fun!
