Gordon Michaels Productions
Gordon Michaels’ Productions are a deeply personal expression of his soul. As a singer in his Church’s Children’s choir at age 3, performing developed into a passion and profession. He was n exceptional talent at New York City’s Music & Arts High School from which he was lucky enough to appear in the movie “FAME” and be on the recording. He earned a scholarship to the Boston Conservatory of Music for Opera but found his love in Musical Theater and is what he earned his BFA in.
He’s at ease singing show tunes, jazz, blues, pop and gospel and even some country. A complete southern gentleman at heart, he knows how to entertain and leave you wanting more.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Look for a teacher you can relate to and who understands what you what and need to get out of your lessons. Sometimes it's not just all text book.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
Where they want to be after lessons. Also what is the gold and where will they get to show off what they have learned and been working on.
