Hello, and welcome tothe MichaelPreddyPiano.com website. It has been said by a friend and colleague of mine that I have led a charmed life. Well, maybe so. I do know this: I am very fortunate to have worked for decades with world-class musicians and two extremely professional and gifted stars. I have been blessed to have seen so much of the U.S. and parts of the world as a touring musician and lifelong student of music. The truth be known, most of my good luck to can be attributed to a good dose of talent I got from my Mom, the "hard work---never give up" ethic I took from my Dad, and a some "straight and narrow" direction which I have learned from my wife, Michele. Finally, my greatest gift is the joy I receive from having a stable home with Michele and my two incredible kids, Vika and Daniel. As for the "charmed part,"a lot of it just being in the right place at the right time with the skill set it took to succeed and as Woody Allen says, always "just showing up."
