by SianR Awesome Teacher - Definitely would recommend
Michael has been a great teacher to my 5-year old. My son and I both came to him with no experience with drums/music education and Michael was able to teach my son in a way that was fun and kept the attention of a 5 year old, while still being able to grasp the concepts and foundations of music. As a parent, I admired his enthusiasm and excitement of my son’s progression. He is very passionate about what he does and it is exemplified through his lessons. My son truly enjoys the lessons and even practices on his own throughout the week and this is definitely attributable to Michael’s instruction style and passion for his craft. I would absolutely recommend Michael as a teacher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KFISH The lessons have definitely been worth while and fun.
I came to Mike with no prior experience in playing drums or reading music. Mike's teaching technique is easy to follow and he explains things in a manner that is easy to understand. Mike is very comfortable to study under and he is always so positive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SusanC3 perfect fit
I was looking for a drum instructor that would fit my son's personality, foster an enjoyment of playing music. The goal was for my son to enjoy learning to play the drums. Take Lessons made it so easy to find the "perfect fit" for him. From the moment, my son met Michael, they hit it off! It has been amazing watching my son progress and so much fun watching him enjoy the drums. Michael has a natural gift for teaching. You can tell he loves what he does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HeatherT Great Drum Teacher!
My 7 year old daughter loves her drum lessons with Michael. I love how patient and understanding he is with her. He always gives her appropriate feedback on what she needs to work on and gives her great praise when she does well. I would recommend him to anyone who is thinking of learning the drums.

Michael is an awesome teacher! He is patient, kind, gives clear instructions, models the technique, encourages and motivates. WOW! His studio is really cool too! He welcomes the whole family to sit in and observe the lessons.My daughter is catching on quickly and getting better with each lesson. We are so impressed with her progress and we attribute this to Michael. He established a comfortable rapport with her and uses his sense of humor to help her get through the tough exercises. He consistently gives positive praise and ends the lesson with a jam session and homework. He is very organized and follows structured lessons. Best of all, the entire experience is FUN!
