Piano | Draper

Michael is a charismatic, passionate individual who is most likely to be caught singing in his car with the windows down. Michael has loved music since he was a boy, playing piano since he was 6 years old. He took lessons in both Classical Music and Jazz until he was 18 yrs old, all the while performing with orchestras, jazz bands, and countless church congregations across the country and abroad. He was playing in downtown Salt Lake City at the Roof Restaurant until the restaurant closed its doors due to Covid-19 in March 2020. Michael also took Violin lessons for 7 years, while dabbling with the guitar and ukulele most recently. He is proficient in ear-training and learning to play what you hear on the piano. Michael loves the piano and helping each student discover the piano more fully is his passion.

“Music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
- Billy Joel
