Michael was born on July 14th, 1947, in Brooklyn, NY. After graduating elementary school, he attended Yeshiva for a short time. He then continued on to high school in Sheepshead Bay and then attended Brooklyn College. Michael majored in Music and received a Bachelors Degree in Science. He was married from 2000-2011, but unfortunately did not have children. Michael worked as a piano technician and as a vocalist for several different music groups. After a severe bout with diabetes several years ago, Michael entered an assisted living facility. On June 28, Michael switched to a facility in Palm Beach where I teach in order to be closer to his clients. Although it has been difficult to do his job, he feels as his strength comes back, he will be successful once again. In the meantime, Michael asked me for Jewish sheet music and when The Three Weeks are over. we will organize a concert for the facility.
