Michael lives in gorgeous Annapolis, Maryland where he loves writing instrumental sound tracks for commercials, movies and films, while featuring his mastery of guitar styles on the acoustic guitar. His CD's are inspired by hiking many of our National and State Trail Systems in the USA.
His music can be heard worldwide via MUZAK at retail stores, malls, hotels, on-hold phone systems, offices, and doctor's offices. Michael also just licensed his music with a distribution company called At Peace Media. Michael's Chesapeake CD music was recently used (summer of 2009) as the sound track on a Nation wide PBS documentary film called "Chesapeake Gold" produced by Ted Roach. This film won Best Documentary, and the narrated version of "Chesapeake Gold" won best Broadcast Journalism award.
Michael's musical compositions can be heard in malls, hotels, stores, phone on-hold systems, and offices around the world thanks to a licensing agreement with MUZAK, and At Peace Media Corporation.
Recently Michael was asked to write an hour sound track for a Relaxation DVD about scenic Cape Cod. This DVD has been used in many capacities in the healing sciences profession. In fact, Harvard Medical University is using this DVD and sound track for their "Mind and Body" Healing Program for the terminally ill. Massage Therapists, Yoga Instructors, and Relaxation and Reflexologist Therapists rave about finding the perfect music for their profession and clients.
Michael's guitar instrumentals have also been featured on Virginia and Maryland Public Television. In fact, the commercials were produced by Steven Fischer, Emmy Nominee and three-time winner of the prestigious Telly Award. Additionally, Michael's music is being sold at retail gift stores throughout North America, and to our National and State Park gift stores, Hospitals, Chambers of Commerce, State Welcome Centers, Museums, Spas, Resorts, and Massage/Yoga Clinics around the world.
His instrumentals are written for the acoustic guitar and blended with piano, flute, and strings. Michael very much enjoys New Age, Classical, Latin, Jazz, and Folk styles of guitar playing.
Michael’s flowing music is ideal for holistic healing, massage, sleeping, yoga, meditation, relaxation, and the healing arts as well as for reflection, and creativity.
He has 14 guitars but favors his Taylor 814 CE. Michael owns a recording studio named The Note Factory where he produces exceptional regional musicians, and he also gives music and songwriting lessons.
When not in the studio Michael can be found power boating, kayaking, mountain climbing, or lounging on the beach...
