Biography and Education

Some say he’s the messenger of the “Good News” to the world of singing. Having taught tens of thousands of vocalists across the globe in the last 20yrs, the creator of “One Voice” has heard a lot of voices. “Can’t sing high, can’t sing low, can’t sing loud, can’t vibrato, can’t control…" he’s heard it all, and helped them too. As the lead voice faculty for the TXST University MT Program and founder of the One Voice Coach Certification Program, Michael not only trains folks to sing, but he also trains vocalist to teach. And he’s a regular human, just like the rest of us. Shortly after delivering his TEDx talk in 2018, he went home, meditated, went on a long walk with his life partner Marqui and their little dog Mogli, and then sat down to watch an episode of Magic for Humans. “If it’s true that you only live once - then I’d better try my best to make as many enjoyable moments as possible.”
