Elan Michaels is a composer, musician and sound engineer from New Hampshire. Elan has been playing since the age of 14. He was trained by a classical pianist and studied music harmony and theory as well as composition in high school and college. Elan played keyboards in several local bands in New Hampshire, performing live through 1975. At that time his family was growing and the schedule of a touring musician was definitely not compatible with family life. So he turned his musical interests to strictly composing and recording in a home studio environment.
