Michael is a great instructor, hands down. He's only been working with my son for a short time and he is able to get him focused and learning new things each lesson. He is very flexible with his schedule and if we are ever to miss because he's on tour, he always makes up the lesson and figures out a time that works for us. I'm grateful that we have found him and look forward to hearing them play each week when he comes to the house. Oh, and did I mention that my son is only 7? Michael's youngest student!

Great teacher!

My 14 year old son has been taking drum lessons for the last couple of months with Michael and he really enjoys his lessons. In fact, half an hour wasn't enough so we increased his lesson length to an hour! Michael is very approachable and patient and my son feels comfortable asking questions. He has greatly improved, and is excited about starting a band with his friends!
