Having concertized across North America, classical guitarist Michael Braun is an avid promoter of the classical guitar, both in a solo setting and with various chamber ensembles. Teaching is also a great passion for Michael, and he maintained a full teaching studio in his home country of Canada for a number of years before making the move to San Francisco to further his education, graduating from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where Michael studied with Marc Teicholz as well as with Sergio Assad, David Tanenbaum, and Richard Savino. He has been selected to play in numerous master classes, most notably with Manuel Barrueco, Sergio Assad, the LAGQ, Fabio Zanon, and Raphaella Smits.

Michael Braun currently resides in San Jose where he maintains a full private studio and is on faculty at Santa Clara University.
