About Me

Born in New York and raised in Colorado and Arizona, Mike has been around the country performing and educating young adults in the world music. He earned his bachelors degree in percussion performance from the University of Arizona. While at the university, Mike performed with every percussion ensemble group in addition to almost all wind and symphonic groups. During his time at the University of Arizona, he taught at several major high schools in the Tucson area.  In addition, he also taught at the University as both a director of percussion and percussion technician/clinician.

 

After graduating, Mike spent a semester at the University of Oregon under the tutelage with the world-renowned percussionist Pius Cheung. During his studies, he also taught the University of Oregon Marching Band’s drumline including their front ensemble. Since Mike has worked over a year with Music & Arts, combined with his previous experience with high schools and colleges, he is fully equipped and knowledgeable in the music industry. He currently services the Paradise Valley USD, Scottsdale USD, Tempe Elementary Schools, Cave Creek, Fountain Hills, and Madison USD.
