About Your Teacher

He's collaborated with legendary artists who include Chris Thile, Steve Martin, Rosanne Cash, Tony Trischka (who teaches banjo at ArtistWorks), and a whole lot more. His first album with Chris Thile (“Sleep With One Eye Open”) was recorded live to tape over the course of four days at Jack White’s famous Third Man Records in Nashville and was later nominated for a Grammy. The New York Times calls him “The leading light for the NY bluegrass scene.”
Besides his singing career, Michael is also a very talented guitar player and sought after teacher. He has many years of experience teaching people of all vocal ranges and abilities how to sing bluegrass. His lessons at ArtistWorks focus on stylistic approach, how to sing harmony, ear training, singing while playing, tone, and more.
