A U.S. Army veteran hailing from a military family, Michael Webb is one of the most diversified, multi-dimensional, and musically gifted musicians of his generation. He currently lives near Nashville, TN, though he has spent at least 20 years of his life abroad in Germany due to his years of military service as an Army Bandsman. Self-taught as a child, he eventually would go on to study privately with the famous Ukrainian classical pianist Oksana Lutsyshyn and Old Dominion University professor of jazz John Toomey before earning his Bachelor’s in film music and audio production at Full Sail University in Florida. He also was an entertainer with Germany’s famous Sweet Soul Music Revue touring extensively throughout Europe in the last 7 years with legendary artists like George McCrae, Nneka, and Stellar award-winning gospel artist Laeh Jones. As a solo pianist, he was a world record competitor for having played the longest non-stop piano recital in history at 32 hours while raising money for wounded veterans. Michael has performed with large groups or as a soloist for dignitaries, royalty, U.S. and foreign presidents, and audiences in over 40 countries and hundreds of cities, including Paris, Moscow, and New York. With over 21 years of experience to his credit in almost every musical genre as either a soloist, musician, bandleader, or music director, Michael’s flamboyant and radiant performance style has left his audiences with a superb impression of his musical genius and exceptional passion. Michael’s years of experience have currently humbled him to a personal desire and passion to share all that he has learned and experienced with others by focusing his energies on teaching and coaching. He is extremely proficient in many styles of music, and his teaching style is fun and easy to follow.
