Michael got into the piano industry when he was 20 years old. He took a piano tuning correspondence course via snail mail and soon got into the family business that is Stilwell Pianos. Stilwell Pianos has grown from a 3rd generation piano service business into a full service piano shop located in Mesa Arizona. Michael spends his days helping PTA students enroll in the course and meeting with various piano stores, technicians and rebuilding shops. He is also in charge of the marketing and student relations. He absolutely loves his job and truly enjoys helping bring the art of piano technology to PTA's students all over the world.
