Michael Ronstadt – Cello, Guitar

MichaelRonstadtCelloGuitar

For two decades, Michael G. Ronstadt has entertained audiences throughout North America on cello, guitar, mandolin and voice. An exceptional musician-composer conversant with a wide range of styles, he not only executes captivating solo performances, but participates regularly in duo and trio situations with a diverse camp of young, innovative musician-songwriters including Lisa Biales, Serenity Fisher and David Trotta. His versatile talents have been tapped for concert and studio work by such artists as David Bromberg, Linda Ronstadt, Muriel Anderson and Craig Bickhardt. Throughout his extensive performance schedule, he has been teaching steadily for the last 10 years in Arizona, Cincinnati, and the last 5 years in greater Philadelphia where most of his 12 students auditioned and blossomed in the Reading Youth Orchestra. Working with students of all ages, Michael has also taught cello workshops for Common Ground On The Hill (Westminster, MD), Tucson Cello Congress (Tucson, AZ), Trappe Community School (Collegeville, PA), High Peaks Music Festival (Hunter, NY), as well as co-teaching with Scottish cellist Seylan Baxter at Patrick Burgh Halls (Glasgow, Scotland). Michael G. Ronstadt displays genre-blending explorations on cello and guitar in complement to thought-provoking lyrics. He is a much sought-after studio musician, who has appeared on more than 75 albums in the last dozen years. Dan Buckley writing for The Tucson Citizen noted his “amazing command of the typical and exotic sounds of the cello, a true virtuoso and a man of instinctive musicality.” Michael holds both a Master and Bachelor of Music in Cello Performance and studied under esteemed pedagogues Yehuda Hanani, Nancy Green and Dr. Gordon Epperson.
