Michael started lessons on the cello aged 9 when he was living in Ethiopia. His first cello teacher was a Bulgarian professional cellist who taught at the Addis Ababa music school. Not sure what he was doing there at the height of the Cold War.  He spoke no English. Aged 14  Michael played in a cultural festival in the presence of His Imperial Majesty the Emperor Haile Selassie. A small group of musicians played a Bach trio sonata movement as the European contribution!

More recently Michael has played with AST for the past 15 years. He gave up for three years when he worked in a hospital in Sierra Leone, and had to restart on return to UK. The West African weather does not suit stringed instruments!
