Hailing from the rich musical breeding ground of Boston Massachusetts, Michael Valeras received a Master of Music in Guitar Performance from the University of Massachusetts Lowell and a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Berklee College of Music. While living in the Boston area he spent 5 years under the tutelage of legendary music educator Charlie Banacos (Mike Stern, Wayne Krantz, Jeff Berlin) and coordinated the music program at Malden Catholic High School. In addition to teaching an extensive list of private students, Mike also maintained an active performance schedule, which included sideman work for Larry Coryell, The Platters, The Coasters and a variety of general business groups. His original jazz/fusion project, The Mike Valeras Group, received rave reviews and performed all over New England.

Since relocating to Nashville in 2009, Mike has performed with or opened for artists such as TG Sheppard, Kelly Lang, Darius Rucker, LeAnn Rimes, Lorrie Morgan, Jo Dee Messina, Tanya Tucker, Carlene Carter and others. His work for local country, pop, and rock artists extends to both the stage and studio and he continues to push the parameters of modern jazz with his group The Mike Valeras Trio. As a committed music educator, Mike holds a position on the Belmont University guitar faculty, teaches privately from his home studio and offers courses of study to songwriters in areas of harmony, composition, ear training, and the Nashville number system. He is the author of Ballads for Solo Guitar and has recently released his third independent album entitled Abbott St.

Mike will provide the perfect solo jazz guitar experience for your cocktail hour or corporate function.
