A Little About Your Instructor
Michael Stilwell CPT
I am a 3rd generation piano technician, the owner of the largest used piano store in the southwest (Stilwell Pianos) and a Student Coordinator at PTA. I live half the time in Mesa AZ and half the time in Pine AZ (mountains) with my lovely wife Laurie (pictured here) and my 4 adorable children. I am passionate about music and love doing my part to help others find the instrument that will inspire them to create! My favorite show is The Office, I dress up once a year (if that) and my favorite food is BBQ!
