Born in New Brunswick, Canada, Michael Elliott is a self-taught composer, pianist, and violinist. His first beginnings in composition were in his late teens, with few pieces ever emerging beyond his own hearing.

     Currently serving as a medic in the Royal Canadian Air Force, Michael discovered and developed his love for classical music and orchestration while posted in Ontario. With no formal education in terms of music, Michael drew knowledge and inspiration from historical composers such as Chopin and Rachmaninoff, as well as various videogame series.
