Michael Stuart

Michael Stuart (tenor and soprano saxophones) was born December 2, 1948 in Annotto Bay, Jamaica, West Indies. After graduating from high school there, he attended the Jamaica School of Music for two years studying saxophone, music theory, and flute. Moving to Toronto, Canada in 1969, he enrolled at the Brodie School of Music where he studied Classical Saxophone, also studying privately with jazz saxophonist Alvin Pall. In the ‘80s, Stuart studied piano briefly with Frank Falco, and in the early ‘90s, studied eighteenth century counterpoint with Nick Deutsch in the early ‘90’s. In the Spring of 2004 he attended a Michael Brecker clinic held at Humber College, a personal “clinic” that ended up lasting three days. In the fall of 2004, he began studies on the drums with Jim Blackley.
