Hi, I'm Mike. I've been playing drums for over 15 years. I got hooked on the drums just before high school and have been playing ever since. I've been teaching all ages for over 10 years now and strive to make sure that my students are able to reach their goals. I have my Bachelors of Music Degree from Musician's Institute, which trained me not only how to be a better performer but how to pass on my love and knowledge of music to others.
I believe that performance is an integral part of education and I have been performing with bands 3 months into learning to play the drums. While performing I started taking lessons to better my skills because lessons are essential to growth in music. Lessons make playing more fun because your given goals and direction and obstacles to overcome. Lessons help you learn so much quicker than learning on your own and lessons help you discover in weeks what would take you years doing it on your own. You'll need that head start because with music, the learning never stops, so let's get to it!

I grew up in Minnesota and started playing guitar when I was 13. Self-taught for three years, I developed a passion and love for music. Upon turning 16, I expanded my knowledge studying with a local guitarist, a musical genius in my opinion, who made a huge impact on my playing. In the fall of 2007 I relocated to Los Angeles to attend Musicians Institute for guitar performance. I graduated in 2009
Over the course of the last nine years I’ve been a part of six different live performing bands and currently work with my original band comprised entirely of Musicians Institute graduates, Delphian. Delphian can be seen and heard featured on screen in the Mike Judge film “Extract”. I study, perform and have vast knowledge in the styles of blues, classical, country, folk, jazz, metal and rock n' roll. Everyday as I continue to grow as a teacher and musician, so does my love for the guitar. I very much enjoy sharing my knowledge and seeing each of my students progress and grow as musicians.

An Ohio-born baritone, David has always had a passion for music and singing. Strongly influenced by the musical pursuits of his older brother, David began playing the piano at age six and was captivated by the school musicals his brother starred in, as well as by the musical Disney movies popular at the time. David also showed aptitude as a young singer. He was frequently chosen as a soloist for grade school productions, and he would often compete in OMEA adjudicated events, receiving the highest scores possible.
David's professional singing career began in high school after receiving recognition from singing the National Anthem at home basketball games, which were always highly-attended. He was soon being paid to sing at local holiday festivals and other community events, where attendance was often in the thousands. Notably, David won first place in both state-wide and international talent competitions for his performance of "If Ever I Would Leave You" from the musical Camelot.
David soon attended Northwestern University, where he was classically trained in opera performance over a five-year period. While at college, he was active in several choirs and an a Capella group on campus. He also started teaching voice at that time, offering instruction to friends who paid him for lessons. One of his students sang in a band, another played the piano and wanted to learn to sing better while playing, several wanted to sing better in church, and a couple others with more singing experience simply wanted to improve their existing technique.
After graduating, David played the role of Colline in the world-renowned opera La bohème for his operatic debut. In addition, he has performed songs in many different languages, including: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Russian. David currently resides in West Los Angeles, where he attends graduate school at UCLA, and continues to teach voice in his spare time. He is also preparing to release his debut solo album.
