Michael’s presence presented an immediate respite from the ongoing onslaught of fight or flight that had left me exhausted
I experienced the healing sound workshop shortly after I had exited a crisis that had stripped me of my sense of self and agency. The beautiful desert aesthetic, along with Aluvia’s and Michael’s presence presented an immediate respite from the ongoing onslaught of fight or flight that had left me exhausted. Their sound healing journey was powerful medicine within a sober, non-hierarchical, non-coercive container. There, I encountered the trust, joy, lightness, and fun necessary to propel me through and forward to restoration.

My experience within the Awakening through Sound & Music workshop was profound for me.
My experience within the Awakening through Sound & Music workshop was profound for me. It expanded my perception of music’s power to have an effect on my body, mind and spirit. Additionally, I became aware of other sounds around me that I had not heard or felt in the past in my home environment after I got home. In my personal experience, I could see light, feel vibration and hear music in the depths of my body. Thank you Aluvia and Michael for your caring and patient guidance.

He has a relaxed demeanor, makes music fun, and teaches concepts in a practical understandable manner.
I have wanted to play guitar since I was a teenager. Michael is the first musician and teacher who has made this dream come true. He has a relaxed demeanor, makes music fun, and teaches concepts in a practical understandable manner. At the end of each session I feel accomplished and ready to take on the next challenge. I highly recommend Michael as a teacher and mentor of music/guitar. He exudes positive energy and is an absolute pleasure to work with.

I recommend not only his beautiful songwriting and performance talent, but also his professionalism, without hesitation.
I’ve worked with Mike on several occasions, and he’s always proven the consummate professional who always gives one hundred percent (and then some)! I initially worked with him to produce a house concert in my TreeHouse PlaySpace in Austin. Initially featuring his Trio, he also brought in a talented young group, Girl Named Tom (who just won The Voice!) to open for them. He shepherded everyone to show up on time, worked with me to get everything set up – and a rarity when it comes to so many artists and musicians I have worked with – he saw the value in also promoting the show in conjunction with my efforts, and it was a success! Both trios put on masterful and soulful performances, and everyone enjoyed a great evening. In November of 2021, he was commissioned by me on behalf of a friend who wanted something special for her daughter who was turning 21. He learned and recorded one of their favorites and it made for a lasting gift. I then set up a second commission, to give us a holiday concert, over Zoom, which was a big hit. We all had so much fun, and his hard work, beautiful songs, voice and playing, and excellent performance will stay with us forever. I recommend not only his beautiful songwriting and performance talent, but also his professionalism, without hesitation.

I realize now that I can hear in other ways.
I enjoyed my sound journey fully. Sound for me has been difficult to fully appreciate. I have 2 hearing aids and when I take them off, everything sounds like I’m underwater. I realize now that I can hear in other ways. Thank you for opening my hearing world.

His vision, creativity and musical gifts were an expansive experience for me, taking me to new places
I had the pleasure of working with Michael in co-creating and facilitating a workshop, ‘Awakening & Self-Discovery through Sound and Music’. It was well-received and impactful. I learned that Michael had significant growth and healing through music and sound, and that he wanted others to have that opportunity. Michael invited me to partner with him to bring together music and energy consciousness healing. His vision, creativity and musical gifts were an expansive experience for me, taking me to new places. He is dedicated to sharing his world to enrich the lives of others. He brought ease, dedication, coordination and commitment to our creative process, and was generous with his time to promote the best outcomes. My gratitude, Michael.
