Michael Robert began his formal piano lessons at the age of six. He has participated in multiple music festivals and has been selected to represent the North Island Festival of the Performing Arts (2019) and the Mid Island Festival of the Performing Arts (2020) at the Performing Arts B.C. Provincial Festival.

Michael spends his time building a diverse repertoire, not only as a soloist but also as a collaborative pianist for string performances, concert choir, and as a church musician.

Through his passion for sharing his music, Michael has received the BCRMTA Gold Community Service Certificate for volunteering his piano performing in his local community. He is also the recipient of the Marie Josephine Richard Piano Competition (2015), and the Dorothy Brealey Piano Scholarship (2020).

Michael graduated from high school in 2020. His plans for the future include continued music studies at the University of British Columbia, where he will be studying in the Fall.
