This is the third time I have hired Michael to thrill one of our clients with his amazing virtuosity on the piano. Once again, I am totally delighted with the professional ethics AND talent that is the joy of working with Michael. He never disappoints; as a matter of fact, he just gets better and better. This gig was a demanding one, for a very particular client, and Michael not only showed up looking great, but his talent AND his personality won the day ... all THREE days of the event in this case. I'm looking forward to working with him again ... and again. Review by Linda B. FROM SAN JOSE, CA

Michael exceeded my expectations and made our event a great experience. I would highly receommend him. Review by Bruce M. FROM SANTA ROSA, CA
Michael was very pleasant to work with from the first conversation to the end of the evening. We had an open house with over 80 people in attendance. Everyone enjoyed listening to him. He played a wide variety of music that was the perfect background for our party. He is a very kind and engaging person. I would highly recommend him and would use him again. Many people asked how we had found him and commented on his excellent skills. Review by Susan N. FROM SAN RAFAEL, CA
