Little Michel’s career began in his childhood. At the age of 3.5 years he sought always something that when guitar abuse, such as a broom, a wooden log or what in the was otherwise just to get in the way. “Playback” play with guitars made from plywood was his thing. In the age of 4.5 years, inspired by his uncle playing guitar, Little Michel fell into the guitar permanently. He received his first guitar lesson from his uncle. Then he wanted to only every weekend for him to play guitar. He asked every day: “Mama when do we go to uncle Rene!?” His mother had no else choice than to give him their ancient guitar! After that it was over with any peace in the house. He played with enthusiasm and love for the instrument and the music, until his mother sent him to lessons with Mathias Arb (1970 – d.18.11.2010).
He studied with Mathias for over 12 years when he went to the ACM (Academy of Contemporade Music) in Zurich and graduated in 6 years. He attended workshops with Paul Gilbert, Kirk Hammett etc.
