About Me

A Dine composer of chamber music, experimental sound, Native American flute, and metal music. Not only is Michael Begay an accomplished guitarist and bassist, but he also plays piano, and various instruments both Native American and orchestral. Michael is both a performer and educator; he has been a composition instructor in residency for the Grand Canyon Music Festival’s Native American Composers Apprentice Project (NACAP) for over eight years, and just finished his second residency with the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra’s Composition Academy. Both programs help educate Native American high school students, in the art of music composition, followed by a world premiere of created works. Michael Begay’s musical style ranges between both aggressive, and sounds pleasing to the ear, he is both a seeker of tone and technique, and is always exploring musical limits.
