Hi there! My name is Michaël Valeanu and welcome to my website.
As you may know, I am a guitarist based in New York and I wanted to create a space where I can share my work with you.
Here, you can explore my work as a performer, composer and educator through articles, videos and links to my music.
You will also learn a little bit more about my life as a musician, my collaborations, my aspirations and my thoughts about music.
I use different platforms to build a community to share my work & thoughts. So, whether you enjoy listening to my music or want to learn more about playing the guitar, I can help you find which platform has what you are looking for!
