MICAH THE VIOLINIST

Micah’s passion for music began even before he could combine words into coherent sentences. At only two years of age, he started what became a lasting relationship with his violin. He attended the Suzuki Violin Studies School in Tokyo, Japan. Later he studied at the Zino Francescatti School of music in Aix-en-Provence, France.

 

At the age of thirteen, Micah performed with Liza Minnelli during her solo concert at the Philadelphia Academy of Music. Soon after, he was chosen to join the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra as principle first violinist, under Anthony Primavera. While pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in International Business at Drexel University, Micah became the lead violinist in the school’s String Ensemble.  At the same time, he began working in nightclubs and experimenting with the fusion of the violin and electronic music.

Upon graduation, Micah continued to enhance his skills by studying with various

 

musicians throughout the Philadelphia area. His teachers included Estelle Kerner, author of the book "A History of the East European Violinist,” and Xiao-Fu Zhou, of the Pennsylvania Centre Orchestra. Micah also studied jazz & blues improvisation with Eric Nemeyer, publisher of Jazz Improv Magazine. He also began touring all major nightclubs in the United States including Philly, New York, New Jersey, Boston, Chicago, Miami, L.A, and many more.
