Michelangelo (Mike) grew up in Westport, CT and began with piano lessons at the age of 5. As a child, his world became music and the piano until he was a teenager and then it was keyboards and recording. His first published music happened as a high school student for a PBS special called 'Oysters in the Long Island Sound'. As a Junior, he won the Connecticut Songwriting Competition.

 

Michelangelo would go on to NYU's Tisch School of the Arts where he fell in love with film and theater scoring. He wrote music for numerous plays performed at the Stella Adler Conservatory (often performing live alongside of the actors) as well as student films from NYU's Tisch Film School. He studied film scoring with Ron Sadoff.
