Welcome to jeremiemichael.com, my official online home! I am glad you chose to stop by and hope that you will feel like dropping me a line via the contact page.
In case we have not met, here are a few introductory words. I have continuously worked as a professional musician since the age of 12. Described by some as a "phenom" since I was 5, I began pursuing a career as a concert pianist with an incredible intensity and passion for making great music. I loved the piano and have been blessed to call it my instrument of choice my entire life.
I grew up mostly around San Francisco, but moved to New York (residing in Manhattan's Upper West Side) about halfway through my teen years. Getting an opportunity to enroll in Juilliard as a piano major at age 16 was a true honor and set the stage for some life-changing experiences. Now that my wife, daughter, and I live in Florida, by way of Kentucky for several years, I am looking forward to many future projects and opportunities and trying my best to adjust to the humidity in the meantime.
I hope you enjoy the website, especially the audio and video clips. Oh! And don't forget to check out the YouTube and Facebook pages, as well.
Thanks for stopping in!

Since 2019, I've been wishing upon a star and helping make magic happen at the Walt Disney World Resort. Pictured here in 2018 at the American Gardens Theatre at Epcot, where I have had the fantastic privilege of joining the band for the Disney on Broadway concert series for the past two seasons.
Music Directing and performing at the Post Playhouse all summer, 2018! Five musicals running concurrently - Phew, lots of work and lots of fun. Shows are The Little Mermaid, Footloose, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Urinetown, and 42nd Street. I get to music direct The Little Mermaid and Chitty and play second keys for the other three. Great people and beautiful Nebraska scenery! Details at www.postplayhouse.com
buh-du-du-dum-SNAP, SNAP! The Addams Family, which I am music directing and conducting at Florida State University is currently running through March 4, 2018. Six shows a week. More information about tickets at http://theatre.fsu.edu/the-addams-family/. Come join me for a kooky, spooky night!
FSU is hosting it's Music Theatre Intensive in July, and it is a pleasure and an honor to be their pianist again for classes and showcase performance. What a thrill to work alongside these uber-talented students, who are on the very brink of theatre greatness!
Florida State University's Summer Music Camps is having me back for the third year in a row as theory and composition instructor. I look forward to these classes with such a talented group of young musicians!
I am very excited to be participating in the 2017 summer season at Theatre West in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. I will be playing the piano and directing the band on stage for their production of ALWAYS...PATSY CLINE, directed by James Alexander Bond and music directed by Patrick Newell. This show will be a welcome change of pace for me, as I portray "Joe Bob" of the "Bodacious Bobcats" - the name given to Patsy's band in the show. I am sure audiences will have a "CRAZY" time two-stepping in the aisles!
I am pleased to announce I will be conducting the musical DISNEY'S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST at Florida State University in Tallahassee in February of 2017. It will be an honor to revisit this magical show after a number of years away from it!
