About Me

Mike started playing trumpet in 5th grade with a rental instrument. He continued through middle and high school playing in marching, concert and jazz bands. He got his first private lessons when he got to college and his whole world opened up. Seeing the real world of music for the first time made him fall completely in love with it.

He has since marched in the World Champion Santa Clara Vanguard Drum and Bugle Corps, and has played in a variety of orchestras all over Southern California. He graduated with is BM in Trumpet Performance from Cal State Fullerton.

He joined the Music and Arts family in March of 2019 as a Repair Shop Coordinator. There he gained a wealth of information regarding instrument makes, brands, and build qualities, as well as how Music and Arts reaches the communities it services. He transferred to the store side when he moved to Arizona in August of 2019 where he quickly became the Store Manager of the East Mesa location.

Mike is dedicated to educating and informing parents and students who are new to music, so they can make the best decisions possible regarding equipment and direction of their young musicians, and give them the opportunity fall in love with the real world of music the way he did.
