Biography of Richard Michael

Richard is one of Scotlandís most versatile musicians, who has influenced a generation of teachers and students with his innovative methods of teaching improvisation through thirty years work with Fife Youth Jazz Orchestra (FYJO) and a career as composer, performer and workshop leader. As a pianist and organist, Richard gives recitals on The Art of Improvisation, and can improvise in any key, in any style at the merest hint of a theme! He is Radio Scotland's 'Jazz Jargonbuster' and has demonstrated many styles of Jazz in 'The Jazz House', and has opened up classical music to a new audience in 'Classics Uncovered'.He is the author of 'Jazz Beginnings, Creative Jazz Education' and Small Band Jazz for the Classroom, and a frequent contributor to Music Teacher Magazine.With his brother Will, Richard made a CD ROM for the Wigmore Hall covering aspects of jazz and baroque improvisation. The next project for the brothers Michael was for both to retire from full time teaching and to work together in the field of jazz education.Sadly, Will died in 2008 and as a memory of his playing the Michael family have produced a CD of recordings by Will and Richard where they can he heard in solo and in duet settings. Will's son Paul, is also featured on bass.
