About Michael Anderson
Throughout his life, Michael has been an accomplished musician. Since the early age of 5, when Michael began his musical journey, he has achieved much success collaborating with world-class musicians and bands, recording multiple CDs and traveling the world performing live. Michael has worked very hard over many years to develop a solid reputation as a serious and qualified musician.
In 1990 Michael formed the rock band Jaded with vocalist Tina Yothers, an actress famous for her role on the hit television series Family Ties. It was here that Michael was able to perform at venues nationwide and make several appearances on programs like Entertainment Tonight, Extra, Fox, VH-1, Mark and Brian, Mancow in Chicago and the famous Howard Stern Show. Shortly after Jaded, Michael teamed up with Adam Kowalczyk and formed Adam and the Weight. Adam was the touring guitar player in the very famous rock band LiVE and brother of vocalist Ed Kowalczyk. Adam and the Weight toured with several artists throughout the country and headlined their very own European Tour.
Beyond songwriting, performing and instruction, Michael has also produced and recorded numerous music scores for television programs and commercials. After 30+ years, he decided it was time to teach the gift of music to eager musicians wanting to learn an instrument. In 2007, Michael created Rockstars of Tomorrow and today hundreds of students a week are enrolled in the music program that teaches them to rock!
