Born in Port au Prince Haiti, Guy A. Michel grew up in a household surrounded by musicians and artists, so music has always been part of his DNA. At the age of 5, his Father wanted him to play the cello which he did not approve of at first until he saw the beauty of the instrument at a recital. On that day, he found his first love and has never looked back since. What started as a fun and joyous experience turned into an immense passion. He joined the Saint Trinite Music Program three years later, and became part of the premiere orchestra in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti “The Orchestre Philarmonique de Saint Trinite”
After his primary and secondary studies at the prestigious Nouveau College Bird, Guy Michel emigrated to the U.S to further his musical studies at Florida International University where he received a bachelor’s in Music Education. Even though Guy Michel is classically trained, he believes that music goes beyond Bach and Beethoven, and even more than playing complex notes to showcase an individual’s talent. It is a form of self-expression; A vehicle in which to awaken and stimulate the imagination. He loves exploring new possibilities on the cello with a repertoire ranging from Easy Listening to Hip Hop and EDM. There’s no limit to what can be accomplished on an instrument. Guy Michel performs on both Acoustic and Electric Cello with true passion and delight.
