    Michael delivered EXACTLY what I was looking for! He asked me lots of questions about what style I wanted, and he was engaging about his thought process for the direction of the piano track before he even recorded it. He delivered the track very (like VERY) quickly, and he delivered even quicker revisions to my comments. I would 100% recommend Michael for any piano track, and I will definitely be asking him for more piano tracks in the future! Literally brought my song to life. :)

    Michael did a fabulous job interpreting a genre-specific request, using 70s type electric piano sounds (Wurlizter/Rhodes) to capture that era and quickly adding one additional request I had. Turnaround time was 24-48 hours, much faster than I even needed. This was my second project with Michael and I will definitely use him again.

    There's a place Miles was always trying to reach when He performed live. I don't know if it was 7th heaven or what. But Michael can get your music as close to it as possible. He can take your song down a colorful road you never thought. If you are wise, you will follow his musical path. Wonderful my man!

    Michael is super pleasant to work with! We had a great, easy-going tone. He is both friendly, personal and a pro! He swiftly delivered a great piano track for my song, with several options to choose from and has a great service-minded attitude and at a great rate! I’ll not hesitate to work with Michael again for sure!

    What an incredible musical journey with Michael! From my initial piano track, we came to a fully radio-edited song.

    Michael managed all aspects of the instrumental background and succeeded to create the universe that I was hoping for for this song. I cannot imagine the number of hours that he allocated to this production.

    Michael has an absolute sense of what is beautiful from a musical perspective.

    A true emotional journey.

    Michael is simply incredible. He is going to be my go to piano player for all of my future tracks. I had a few tracks that had some boring MIDI piano on them. I sent them to Michael to see what he could do and he reenergized my tracks with new life and energy. He elevated both songs and made them infinitely better. Plus he did it with an insanely fast turn around to help me hit a deadline. You would be crazy to hire anyone else for your piano needs.

    Michael is an amazing pianist and a wonderful person to work with. He really brought my track to life with his playing and he did it all extremely fast. I had a great time working with him and will be returning to him again next time I need piano.

    Michael is truly the most talented, hard working, profession musician/human I’ve ever met. He produced a 6 track EP for me, top to bottom in a 2 month time period and it couldn’t be more perfect. Michael’s the best there is. I couldn’t recommend him more!!!

    Michael was referred to me by Sound Better and it couldn't have been a better match - I see him as a much younger version of myself in that we are both keyboardists and he understood and fulfilled my requests. We used a combination of the dialogue box filled with grid specifics followed by a chat and it was as close to the "shoulder to shoulder" type of record production I came accustomed to from my "rock star" days in the 70's.
    I plan on hiring Michael to complete my Rock-estra album.

    This is the second song I've worked with Michael on, and I couldn't be more impressed with what he came up with. This time, rather than a straight piano track, which he provided beautifully for me last time, he layered a bunch of ambient synth and keyboard parts, all of which he improvised and which have since become indispensable to the final mix.

    His playing chops are superb, but beyond that, he's a true creative artist on the keyboards, and a great person to collaborate/correspond with.

    It was an absolute pleasure working with Michael on my song. He re-interpreted a very rocky guitar driven track of mine as a slower, piano-lead version and his subtle melodic touch and sense of dynamics were perfect.

    What an amazing collaboration with Mike again!! I was currently doing a project that re-arrange our band song by acoustic instruments. Mike is a great pianist and helped me finishing the piano arrangement and recordings. I was touched by his music. Can't wait to finish the recording for this song!

    Michael is truly the embodiment of a professional. He always looks out for the integrity of the recording and is what you call in the industry "a silent assassin". There's nothing he can't do!

    I've been working with Michael for the last 7 years, and aside from being a spectacular pianist/keyboardist, he's also an extremely dedicated and professional music director, arranger, producer, and all-around good human being. He takes each project with care, no matter how big or small, and is extremely genuine, hard-working, and easy to work and communicate with. Michael's always a good person for the job.

    Michael is truly the most talented, hard working, professional musician/ human I've ever met. He produced a 6 track EP for me, top to bottom in a 2 month time period and it couldn't be more perfect. Michael's the best there is. I couldn't recommend him more!!

Interview with Michael Arrom

  1. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  2. A: Being a succesful musician requires excellent personal time management skills. Teaching lessons, band rehearsal sessions and tour travel can turn your schedule into a chaotic mess. Without a plan for filling in the smaller gaps, it's easy to waste a lot of time. SoundBetter is an incredible platform for helping me manage my career. By taking advantage of the inherent flexibility in remote sessions, I can use this platform to stay productive all the time. It's a fantastic win-win situation where I can offer independent artists my best rates anywhere in exchange for a little flexibility.

  3. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  4. A: I’ve been studying, teaching, performing and creating music for 20 years. My first professional performance was at age 13. I got my first big breaks during my senior year of high school. First, the Grammy Foundation selected me to accompany Keith Urban on live national television at the American Country Awards. Just a few months later, I passed a grueling audition to play keyboards for Steve Vai on an international tour through Australia, New Zealand and Asia. I returned from tour to continue my music education at the prestigious USC Thornton Popular Music Program. I completed the program with multiple department awards and Summa Cum Laude honors. Shortly after graduation, I was invited to return to USC as the youngest member of the Thornton Pop Music faculty team. I currently teach Keyboard Proficiency for pop music majors as well as private studio lessons.

  5. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  6. A: I do a variety of work for my clients. The simplest is when I create a piano backing track for an existing song. From there, my work expands into writing original keyboard parts to complement your melody. I can also do an extensive amount of soundscaping where I add additional synth layers to give your song that radio-ready vibe.

  7. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  8. A: Sir Paul McCartney, hands down. No need to explain further :)

  9. Q: What's your typical work process?

  10. A: First, I do a lot of listening...listening to the music, listening for the meaning of the song and listening to my client. I'll ask thoughtful questions until I'm confident that I understand your needs. At that point, I'll listen back carefully to your stems to make sure I understand the structural elements of your song: chord patterns, tempo, dynamics, etc. I'll consult with you to select an appropriate voice (piano, organ, synth, etc) and then get to work creating your track. I record both audio and MIDI to allow us to fine tune the performance to your satisfaction. I'll bounce an mp3 of the entire song and share that with you for discussion and for any desired revisions. Once you're 100% satisfied, I'll send you both the isolated wav file and associated MIDI data.

  11. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  12. A: Don't be anxious about approaching me before you're certain of what you want. While it's usually easiest to just give you exactly what you want, it's more fun to help you develop possibilities you hadn't imagined before talking to me. I'm ready to help guide you through a creative range of options.

  13. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  14. A: I was invited by Michael Stoller's family to take part in a tribute to the late Jerry Leiber. Leiber & Stoller were the first songwriters to be inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame. Their work was legendary and helped launch the career of Elvis Presley with songs like "Hound Dog" and "Jailhouse Rock". I was asked to play Hammond organ in an incredible band that paid tribute to their work. Michael Stoller is a living legend and one of my heroes. I will never forget playing alongside him in a loving tribute to his friend and collaborator.

  15. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  16. A: 100% effort until you're 100% satisfied. Professionalism throughout in my work, communications and follow up.

  17. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  18. A: I’m currently splitting my time between work in Los Angeles and New York. I’m doing an eclectic mix of live gigs, music direction, session work, sound design, film scoring, production and musical notation work.

  19. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  20. A: I love them both. Like any tool, you get the best results when you use the right tool for the job. Most music will be distributed digitally using a compression algorithm like mp3. For those applications, digital is the way to go. It’s very cost effective and can sound great. For piano work, I can use my MIDI controller and Synthogy’s Ivory plug-in for nearly lifelike results. My favorite instrument for live performance will always be a full concert grand. I love Steinway and I prefer the Hamburg pianos for the brighter tones that they bring to modern music. If you catch me while I’m working on the east coast and you want analog, I can bring you the best of both worlds. I have access to a Hamburg Steinway Model A piano. My recording chain for that is an Earthworks PianoMic followed by your choice of a Neve 1073 or a Telefunken V72 preamp. I bring it to digital using an excellent Apogee Rosetta A/D converter.

  21. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  22. A: A standard piano has 88 keys, but there is so much more that you can bring out of the instrument. The full name is piano-forte and that says something about the dynamic ability to express everything between barely a whisper and booming thunder. I have years of top-notch classical training to be able to express the entire range of dynamics to create an arc that complements and enhances the emotional content of your song. You'll rarely hear piano work like mine.

  23. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  24. A: Sharing my skills with other talented musicians to create something special.

  25. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  26. A: I have a full professional palette of skills to bring to your music. I’m not just a pianist, but also a skilled producer and keyboard multi-instrumentalist. I know my way around a Hammond organ and all the synthesizer and production technologies. I use my skills to sculpt the perfect keyboard tracks around your music. I’ll always do that while paying careful attention to the message and feeling of your song.
