Michael Malstrom is a full-time physician and part-time composer. He comes from a musical family; his mother is a pianist and an excellent accompanist, and all his siblings were involved in music. Mike started playing the viola in fourth grade through a public-school music program. Two years later he started taking private lessons from one of his neighbors. In a couple of years she referred him to the viola professor at a local college who Mike studied with for the next several years. He played with university level orchestras, chamber groups, and symphonies. Mike left music after university to pursue additional education as a medical doctor and subsequently as an eye surgeon. Over the past few years he has finally had time to return to music in the form of composition.
