音楽家 Musician - Composer
Michael Frank Stitt スティット マイケル (19 August 1961- )
is an Australian composer and Landscape Architect. He is twice an award winning Landscape Architect. Michael is a self-taught musician and composer. Although he did not take up a career in music, music has been an active and major influcence in his life. From an early age he was introduced to classical and popular works.
At fourteen, Michael attended the King’s School, Sydney, with a passionate interest in the music, and especially his classical guitar lessons would see him turning the pages of the King's school chief music master, Keith Asboe, who played the school’s massive pipe organ. While not pursuing music as a mainstream subject, Michael studied the Classical guitar under Carol Britton. He undertook a Master class with guitarist, Ken Burns, at the Sydney Conservatism of Music, and undertook intermediate lessons at the Sydney Spanish Guitar Centre by various guitar teachers. Some years later he enrolled in a Diploma in Musicology at the Canberra School of Music. After working in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 2016, an opportunity was made available to spend three months studying a three stringed Japanese instrument, the Naguata Shamisen in Chofu City, Tokyo.
